Located across the street from the Greater Columbus Convention Center
Pricey fees for parking and internet access
Recent visitors consistently described the Hilton Columbus Downtown as refreshingly modern with a courteous staff and an enviable location in Ohio's capital: This Hilton is situated right across the street from the Greater Columbus Convention Center, near the Arena District and less than a mile south of the North Market. Rooms feature 42-inch LCD TVs, spacious work desks and alarm clocks with MP3 connectivity. When you're not lounging in your accommodations, you can head to the indoor pool (a favorite of recent guests) or work up a sweat in the fitness center. Past visitors said they were pleasantly surprised by the modern amenities found in the gym. However, guests were less impressed with the extra fees for parking and in-room internet access. Some also noted the walls here were a bit thin, meaning you could hear anything and everything in the hallways. The Gallerie Bistro, on the other hand, receives praise for its improved menu and variety of offerings. Looking for a way to save some coin? Cash in your Hilton Honors points here for complimentary nights or rack them up for future stays.
