Rated 3 out of 5 by Brad1000000 Downtown Conference Hotel
The Downtown Sheraton is directly across the street from the capitol building and rooms on the north side have great views of the building. The hotel is part of a larger complex that includes an office building and small shopping plaza, and there's also an in-hotel Starbucks. It's generally a nice property, but not outstanding in any way. I needed computer access while I was there, but none were working in the "Link@Sheraton" nor in the club lounge. Staff didn't care.
Metered parking seems plentiful on surrounding streets, and I parked for free across from the hotel overnight. Beware of "No Stopping Between x and y AM" signs all over the place, though...I think they'll tow if you're in these spaces.
Platinum received an upgraded room with nice view and club access. Club had evening appetizer (including various salads, cheeses, and even desserts) and morning breakfast buffets. Seating is somewhat limited, but it wasn't crowded when I was there.
I'd stay here again because it's the best downtown SPG option for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DJC54 Great hotel with the best view in downtown Columbus!
My wife and I chose to stay here to celebrate her birthday and our anniversary. We were going to see the Symphony at the Ohio Theater next door and felt this hotel was most convenient.
The staff were fantastic and very attentive, polite and welcoming. The club lounge was wonderful and the food and drink available allowed for a great hour or so of relaxing conversation with other guests. But that view!!! It is the best view in all of downtown Columbus. I highly recommend a Capitol Sq. view! The hotel seems to have been recently renovated in many areas and they were tastefully done!
The restaurant was also well worth a visit. The food was wonderful and the staff were fantastic.
My only complaint, and it is minor given all that we experienced there, was the bed. It seemed so comfortable at first, but then it began to sink in the middle. Within an hour my wife and I were sleeping back to back sunken into a hole in the middle of the bed. It felt like you had to climb over a hill to get out of bed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by edavis I stay in the hotel a lot but there is one thing...
I like this hotel for a lot of reasons. It is in a good location, nice people and rooms. But the last time I stayed there, I found our room to be dark. Not enough light to put on makeup or get dressed. Usually the room we stay in has a light on the desk or a magnifying mirror in a large bathroom. This time, we were "upgraded" to a room where I really could not see in any of the mirrors well enough to get myself together in the morning. A friend staying during the same time commented that her room was dark as well.

Everything was exceptional, however, I had to request a fridge for the room to store breastmilk (and was charged $10 for the night). The staff brought the fridge right away, the fridge appeared to be working fine, however during the middle of the night it stopped working and in turn, I had to dump breastmilk. I was very happy with our stay, it just was very frustrating that in order to take a trip, part of it requires me to store milk, dumping it was very frustrating to me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BethAnn64 Although it is nice, there were a couple things:
I could not get my heat to turn on. I tried everything. I even set the thermostat on 80 and still got up to 65 degrees.
I also had nothing but cold water. I tried both before I went to bed and when I got up in the morning. I tried everything with that as well and it was cold.

Rated 3 out of 5 by rob99 Nice renovations, but service needs improvements
I work only a few minutes away from this hotel and have not stayed here in more than a year (I travel from another state when visiting our HQ). Overall the property has improved, new carpeting, Starbucks, fireplace, good common areas, but the valet service/area did not live up to my expectations. On arrival we could not even pull into the valet inlet and had to wait on 3rd Street (very busy) for about 15 minutes. Departing a few days later when calling down from my room (after 9 AM) they said it would take 30 minutes to recall my vehicle (after them telling me it would take 15 minutes when drop off). Going downstairs and outside it appeared they were not busy and they only had one person getting cars. Maybe management doesn't understand they are serving mainly corporate guests...even though the hotel is located on CAPITOL Square in downtown Columbus. Very flummoxed on why this can't be resolved. Will not stay here in the future. The Westin down the street is much better and prepared for guests that have to travel to their office in the AM.

The room was clean and enjoyed my stay. The rooms were cleaned late afternoon and that made it hard to be able to refresh during the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Polly2 This hotel will take good care of you!
No matter what time you check in, an agent will take special care of you and will try to meet all requests. I have never felt rushed, ignored, or even unimportant to the
agent/hotel staff. This is an excellent 2nd

Rated 3 out of 5 by 1jane Great front desk/reception
Every interaction with reception was an excellent one; requests were quickly executed, restaurant recommendations were spot on and courtesy and a smile were always present.
My stay at the Sheraton Columbus at Capitol Square was for business and time was of the essence. Twice in my 5 night stay I did not receive a wake-up call and the result could have been disastrous.
My only other complaint is that the quality of the toilet paper was inferior to what I prefer.
Bed and linens were great and my room (623) was quiet and had a great view. I love the green offer (500 points each night) .Overall a good stay.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JMal Hotel Staff needs to be more attentive
Our room was never cleaned. I requested it to be cleaned on 2 occasions on the Saturday of our stay but it never happened. Room was not very clean - very dusty and caused allergies. Restaurant and bar were great. Restaurant and bar staff friendly and attentive and engaging.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Shaun13 POOR STAFF
When I arrived for my 3 o'clock check in my room was still not ready. They told me since I booked a room on high floor I would have to wait. The lady working the desk made me feel like it was my fault. I had to explain I was running the marathon the next morning and needed to be in my room at 3 so I could start to get things in order. She did find a room, but didn't explain very much if the price was going to change or anything like that. When checking out we called down to have our car ready. They say give them 15 minutes. we waited over 45 minutes because they forgot about our car and I had to remind them. Except for 2 woman working the desk, everyone else was very non helpful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SM126304 Better options out there
I stayed here as part of a wedding party. When I checked in the room was 80 degrees. I turned on the air, left the hotel for an hour, and when I came back it was 82 degrees. I was told that someone would be up to fix the air. While I was trying to get ready for the reception, drenched in sweat, no one materialized. When I returned from the reception the carpet was soaked due to leaking pipes on another floor. And this was at over $200 a night. No apology, no attempt to adjust the bill. Better options in downtown Columbus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Noisyowl Very nice and affordable!
Great looking hotel, and the staff was extremely helpful! Price was also a plus, the only thing closest to a complaint would be the Club lounge was a little weak, but that was mainly because I had high expectations. All around a great hotel, and I would definitely come back!

Had a really great experience at this hotel for a conference. From the valet staff to the front desk staff, everyone was friendly and helpful. I was even able to check in quite early and staff went out of their way to make sure the room was in a quiet corner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chicagobankers Exemplary Service
This was the most consistent A+ service throughout the SPG company. The check-in desk staff all had bright smiles. The server in the lounge had a smile and was friendly. The room service was discrete and observant (left extra shower gel without being asked). The Club Floor rooms were great and I loved the upgraded elements. All around A+ for the service and attitude for the employees. Would definitely recommend again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Buckijen Disappointed
My husband an I have stayed at the Sheraton for the past three years when coming to watch an OSU football game ab service has always been great but our visit this year was very disappointing. On arrival no one asked to assist us w our luggage we had to unload an carry in. We then inquired on what time the first shuttle left for the game an were told they no longer offer this service, one of our high priority items for staying. Check in was smooth but cluttered with a lot of luggage an bags just setting around with tags from early arrivals. On Sunday morning we had to go to the desk to check out no statement was delivered to our door. We called valet 15 minutes before we checked out only to find over 20 people outside waiting. It took 40 minutes for us to get our car from valet. Needless to say with much regret we will be booking at another hotel for our next stay in Columbus

Good location for access to a variety of downtown venues - right across the street from the State House which proved very useful.
Staff were generally the sort of helpful, pleasant, accommodating people one expects in a Sheraton.
Service in the restaurant was a little slow for such a small restaurant.
Overall, good for a short to medium business stay.
