However, recent guests didn't seem to mind: Travelers consistently praise the property's comfortable beds, the tasty food at the on-site eatery and the employees for being exceptionally hospitable and helpful. And because Le Méridien hotels are part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    Situated right off Columbus's Capitol Square (across the street from the Ohio Statehouse), this Sheraton outpost receives ample praise for its convenient downtown Columbus location. When you're not out sightseeing, you can relax in your guest room; accommodations feature Sheraton Sweet Sleeper Beds, Shine by Sheraton toiletries and flat-screen TVs. (While recent visitors appreciate the comfy amenities, they're less complimentary of the hotel's valet parking attendants, which they note as exceptionally slow.) Step outside your lodgings and you'll find a fitness center, an on-site Starbucks and the Plaza Restaurant. Guests offer favorable reviews of the restaurant, citing tasty food and reasonably priced dishes, but they're also quick to recommend exploring the food scene in downtown Columbus.

    The Westin Great Southern Columbus
    Columbus, OH
    0.3 miles to city center
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    Recent visitors enjoy this Westin's proximity to the German Village and Brewery District neighborhoods, as well as its elegant, historic building. The Westin Columbus was once The Great Southern Hotel, which opened in 1897. And even though it's now refurbished with 21st-century comforts like iHome radios and custom Heavenly Beds and toiletries, the original stained-glass windows and crystal chandeliers transport guests to yesteryear. Additionally, the hotel boasts two dining options, as well as a fitness center. The only drawbacks, according to a few previous guests, are that guest rooms are a tad cramped and the walls are rather thin. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.
