Rated 2 out of 5 by JCB124 Loudest hotel I've stayed in
Traveling on business I knew many business travelers had stayed here. Our business in Columbus continued all weekend and soccer kids ended up flooding the hotel. The lobby was like a gym, you could not use the pool or hot tub because of the amount of kids, the kids were in the fitness center and the lobby smelled like a bar with parents getting drunk in the bar and in the lobby with their coolers of beer. The kids were playing soccer in the halls and pushing in front of you on the elevator. The staff said there was not much they could do. Also the door knob in our bathroom was broken and we asked that it would be fixed and never was. The weekend maids would not clean the room very good either. After two nights of this I would never recommend this hotel or ever stay at a Sheraton again since this must be their training.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Michelle7911 Comfort Great, Customer Service Not So Much
Have stayed at this hotel several times. Always been good. However this time, I reserved the room with one credit card, but presented another a check-in. Was assured nothing would get charged to the first card and that all holds/charges would be on new card. Got home and checked my bank statements to find that BOTH cards were charged. The first card, which was my debit card to my checking account, was charged and left me with $28 in my account. When I called to discuss it I was told it was a hold from check-in and that it would be reversed in no more than 2 weeks. Completely unacceptable that they can put holds for the same amount on two separate cards and I'm the one with 3 kids who cannot buy groceries now because there is only $28 available in my account until this charge gets reversed. Never again will I stay at this hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PJ515 Good Value
This is the third time I have stayed at this hotel with my family. Each time we have been greeted by friendly, enthusiastic personnel...a nice thing after a long drive!
All of our rooms have been nice and clean. This past stay (6/15-6/17) the king room had a missing closet door - not a big deal. You can see some normal wear and tear, but it is an extremely busy hotel! We will return as it is a terrific value and the employees are wonderful to work with.

Rated 1 out of 5 by AliceF This hotel is not what I thought it would be
First of all if I would not recommend your hotel to anyone staying in the Columbus area. The elevators are horrible and I understand that you were probably sold out but your hotel and its elevators did not meet the requirements for the capacity that you hold. We waited 20 minutes one time for an elevator from the 7th floor. It was rediculous! And why do the 7th, 8th and 9th floors have a key to go to them in the elevator? This is just a waste of time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by GGMom Unacceptable & Disappointing Customer Service
Front desk service was disappointing & unacceptable at check in and when calling in.
Phone calls to hotel have been either not answered, did not know answer, left on hold 17 mins, or transferred to managers voicemail.
Delivery charge for in-suite dining that was not mentioned when using 2 - $5 Good Choice vouchers for $10 cost of food.
Team families were told rooms were not ready since our block of rooms were not ready, but rooms were not in a block.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kathy1956 Many features not all for the best
Unfortunately the bathroom floor was dirty , the mattresses were overused that dipped in the middle. Without the splash guard in the bathroom tub water was all over the floor after a shower. The room keys did not work until we had them reprogramed. Was not able to enter the pool area without the help of an associate. Not bring a platinum member we were unable to utilize the club room. First time I have ever had that happen

Rated 1 out of 5 by Miner12 Club lounge charge...
Had one of the worst experiences I ever had. When checked-in, I asked for club lounge access, and a lady granted without anything . Next day morning we ate breakfast, and the staff asked for a voucher that we're not aware of. Instead I gave him the room number. When checked out the room charge was in my bill, $35.03. Explained this to the front desk manager, and he kept saying sorry but it's charged. I requested resolution to WW customer service.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BSMC Room was not clean and had to move
Dog hair all over couch and sweeper not ran adequately in room on 8th floor. Moved to another room on 9th floor and much better.
This is a pet friendly facility but some rooms should be reserved for guest without pets and may have allergies. Additionally kids run wild in the pool area and in hot tub without parent. Staff should monitor pool area and insist all follow posted regulations.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Hammer13 The Hotel was Poorly Staffed
we arrived at the Hotel on March 1 2013 the hotel staff was just about extinct. waited 30 mins, to get checked, only to be told my card was denied I called my card company and they told me the staff never entered the required security code on the back of the card. very embarrassing for this to happen in front of piers and customers. the manager was non-exsistent and of no help. poor service for the whole stay, we had a group of 30 plis people.

Spent four days in Columbus for a gymnastics competition. The hotel exceeded my expectations. The room was clean and a decent size. The pool was clean and warm. My kids enjoyed the pool!! I would definitely stay here next year when I am in town for the Buckeye Classic Gymnastics meet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lori Below Average Stay
At check in the lady was not friendly nor did she take the time to explain the club lounge or breakfast. When I asked her the quickest route to our room she pointed to the elevators without saying a word. The maids did not remove the trash from our room nor the four shopping bags of trash that were neatly complied and placed under the bathroom sink. We were traveling with infant twins and had dirty diapers in our room for the two night stay.

We recently stayed here with ten other familieis for a softball tournament in Columbus. In addition to the outrageous cost of food and drinks there seemed to be a shortage of towels...although there were three of us in my suite and five in the suite down the hall and five on another floor none of us ever got more than one towel. The drain in my bathroom also didn't work so that you had to stand in dirty water while you showered...disgusting.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ImAConsultant Horrible beds
The beds in my room (2 full size) were terrible. Possibly the worst beds I've ever slept on. The sheets were scratchy, the mattress was visibly BOWED in the middle, and the pillows were all uncomfortable. It's 3 days after my last night there any my back is just now feeling better. When I told my concerns to the concierge she gave a little chuckle and said, "Really, because I always hear good things." I will not stay at this hotel again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mari72 Not so clean!
We stayed in room 630. When I first entered room it didn't smell clean. I tried to turn on the TV and it would not go on so I wiggled the cord and it was loose so I tighten it up and all was working but the dust in back of the dresser where the TV was on looked like it had not been cleaned for months. The night stand also was so dirty dusty in the back. I could see it as I laid on the bed. I was not pleased with the cleanliness!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Shawn73 A/C in several rooms was not working
The air conditioning in several rooms (we traveled with a group) was not working and it was so hot in the room that no one could sleep. The A/C unit was blowing air but it wasn't cool.
When folks complained, they weren't taken seriously, they were offered other rooms with the same issue.
One of the worst hotel stays I've ever had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mkeres79 Great time at the Sheraton.
Great gym! No matter what your routine is you can continue it there. Spacious, clean.
We were a party of four and the room met all our needs. Comfortable beds, clean linens and plenty of towels.
In addition to being a clean and well maintained hotel, the staff is great. Everyone is always wearing a smile. Be sure to visit Sammy in bar! At the front desk, Dan is the man! He can answer any question or solve an issue with ease.

stayed 2 nights on 9th flr. in a "executive suite" the temp outside was 100. when we got into the rm. the ac. was off. not set up. but off. It took till midnight to cool the room. the rooms are of high end decor, but the maintaince is lacking. the door handle to the closet was broken and would not allow the doors to shut. The outside pool was in need of sweeping. as there were leaves and needles sunk or floating all arround..

We love the hotel and this is our third visit.
Our major disappointment was the club room. We stay in hotels quite a bit due to business and vacations, and when we pay more for club room we expect to get what is advertised. We were told the breakfast was until 10:30am both downstairs and in the club room. They closed up an hour before that. Nothing in the club room for evening but chopped veggies with i

Hotel wasn't very clean.. When we got to our room it didn't feel comfortable because it wasn't very clean there was urine on toilet which really was disgusting!! Dogs barking, ice on carpet in hallways. The pool area was dirty towels left on floor.. then remote was not working in room. Then when it was time to go to sleep the pullout bed was stuck so someone had to come in our room at 10:00 pm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DB12 Promises broken
Room was superior, service was friendly and efficient but I reserved this room as part of a special offer. I had to ask for the special offer for which the staff didn't seem to know about and then they spotted the coke a cola bags but the $25 Amazon Gift card was not included and they told me it would probably be emailed to me? I felt like they were lying instead of saying they would look into it.

My 5 year old grandson and I were made to feel very welcome. I don't recall the front desk assistant's name, but she was exceptionally helpful with suggestions for us ~~ knowing the focus of the trip was on my grandson & that we were going to COSI. I will stay again at this property. Even though the carpeting & furnishings are a bit dated, all was clean. A big plus in my book.

Not a pleasant experience. We were part of a block of rooms for our volleyball team and had no choice in where we stayed. The room was so hot and it was never corrected. The solution was giving me a fan. I complained both days without a solution.

The first room we checked in, carpet was dirty, and tables had not been wiped down, the second room we were moved to, bedding skirt was dirty all around, and the fridge had stains on it, however, we decided to stay. Alex did a great job in attemtping to solve our issue, and Sam in the bar was an outstanding host, as I explained my issues to him as well, the drinks help take the edge off :

Nice hotel BUT they either need to revisit their pet policy or revamp their sanitizing procedures. Thought my wife was catching a cold, sneezing, watery eyes, runny nose. Upon checkout we saw the bottom of suitcase on the floor was full of dog hair and she is allergic to dogs! Apparently prior guest brought their dog but staff did not clean up very well from it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jackie27 Where's the free breakfast ?
Disappointing to see the continental "free" breakfast . A bowl of fruit and some coffee, really ? Other places I have stayed have offered a complete free breakfast buffet, with paying less for a room !
In order to use the pull out couch bed, you had to rearrange the furniture - not thought out when designing lay out.
Great perk of this place is the beds are awesome - that's about it.

If you are looking for an above average hotel/suite that is close to it all this is it. I stay here nearly every month due to the proximity to restaurants, bars-pubs, Worthington, shopping, business contacts, recreation and because it never disappoints me. Clean rooms, friendly staff, nice lounge and free wi-fi make it a perfect place for my home away from home!
