Rated 3 out of 5 by SPGjb Not bad if you can get a deal.
Beautiful facilities. Beds are great. HVAC was loud and slow. Poorly lit bathrooms. Room service was horrid. I used it 2 mornings for breakfast. The first day was slow. The second day was a disaster. That meal was comped after and hour and 3 trips. I ate at the bar one night and the service was horribly slow. I sat for 20 minutes while employees chatted. I stay downtown at least 2 weekends a month and have never had to pay for internet.The people above me sounded like a herd of elephants. I'm really not a picky person I just did not have a good weekend here. It could of been a fluke,

Rated 1 out of 5 by TheSkyistheLimit This hotel was disappointing
My initial room was not clean; therefore, I had to go back to the front desk to request a clean room. The room I was offered was way to small for the cost of this hotel. I am a business traveler either driving or flying to my destinations and do not enjoy having to deal with issues upon my arrival, especially, when the facility has been paid in advance. I was not able to cancel my reservation due to a timeline policy regarding cancellations. An exception should have been made since the hotel was obviously not prepared for my arrival even with a 17 day advance reservation. Shame on your management.

The staff was exceptional. The beds are always perfect and the character of the older hotel was very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nutshell Exceptional
My stay was great. Not a problem, but since I was only one person my room was small but adequate, just used to larger room. Pluses clean, bed comfortable, restaurant excellent. Staff exceptional. Checkin staff person remembered my first name when I walked up to counter to ask a question two days after checkin, how awesome is that. Old hotel but very well updated, actually beautiful , impressive lobby.. Only one little thing the shower was old looking but worked fine no problem with operation of shower

Rated 5 out of 5 by CWSmith Excellent. Platinum SPG Service.
I had an excellent experience at the Westin Columbus! As a frequent traveler and a Platinum SPG member I felt completely taken care of and very comfortable. Wonderful room upgrade--you could have had a dinner party and a yoga class going on at the same time in the room I received. Lovely note from the manager, mini box of chocolates, extra water = perfect! Hotel is in a great location as well--lots of restaurants nearby but the immediate corner where the hotel is located is very quiet which makes a big difference when traveling often. Front desk employee was friendly, informative, and professional. Overall, couldn't have been better. Thanks!

Wonderful stay in a beautiful room. Very spacious with a fabulous view of Columbus. Staff can not be any kinder. Felt valued and pampered the entire stay. Needed help with a few things and everything was taken care of. Will recommend this hotel to everyone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anaerobic Poor customer service
Thw hotel is ideally located, room was tiny. The refridgerator was really small and filled... I like to use fridge for other food. Staff was good, but management was not. On the overnight breakfast order form where it indicates what time you would like breakfast they had times listed from 6am - 10am-ish. I put an order in for 6:15 on Sunday as I needed to leave by 7am. At 6:30 I called asking where my order was... I got "we Di t serve hot breakfast until after 7am bc we don't have a chef here until then". The hotel not only don't call me to tell me this, nor were they going to, but tere was no apology an I had to ask to have it removed from my bill. Then when I needed to leave, they forgot to bring my car up which I called up. I had to ask management again as to what was happening, and I got a blank look and no apology.
Not exactly what I expected out of a Westin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Adam Old World Charm...beautiful
I've stayed at the Westin Columbus more than a dozen times (also known as the Great Southern). It is a beautiful, old hotel that is well maintained and retains much of it's beauty and charm from a time long since past.
Like many of the more traditional hotels, it boasts a beautiful lobby with high ceilings and gold leaf paint along the crown moldings.
The check in desk is wood - I suspect restored from the original hotel. The rooms are spacious - although some do not have views and the hotel is very affordable.
This is my "hotel of choice" when traveling to Columbus.
PS. Kudos to the staff on a consistent "JOB WELL DONE:
