Wonderful hotel – Wonderful room service. I love the shampoo they offer there. I have stayed there three times and I live in Columbus. I had a wonderful experience.
Rude, disappointing service – My parents came to Columbus for their 30th wedding anniversary. They reserved a room at the Westin on Expedia. However, upon checking in at 5:30 pm, they were told that the room had been given to someone else; a wedding party had chosen to stay an extra night, and my parents' room was given to accommodate them. The Westin employee transferred them to the Drury Inn (FAR INFERIOR) with no apologies or refund. Though this may be "corporate policy," it's awful service!
I called to request that my parents be lodged as they originally planned- byt all of the managers I spoke with gave me a laundry list of excuses as to why the room had been given away. Michael Patterson, the manager on duty, was the rudest. He tried to tell me that Columbus law forbade him from 'evicting' the existing guests (completely untrue). When I said that I would not give up until the reservation was honored, he threatened to call the police and report me for harassment. He then refused to give me the general manager's phone number.
I don't understand why they didn't call my parents as soon as they knew the hotel room had been given to someone else, apologize, and try to make satisfactory arrangements elsewhere.
When I called Starwood corporate to report Michael Patterson and the rest of the staff's rude behavior and unacceptable offer, the rep I spoke with was very polite. However, she said that since the room had been given away there was nothing they could do. I asked that my parents at least be lodged at Westin's expense in a hotel of equal caliber, but she said that they were not 'obligated' to do that. The worst part is knowing that when I contact the manager, he will have already heard the biased version of this story from his staff.
All in all, a terrible experience. I'm sure that the Westin's rooms are excellent and many people have had great experiences there, but be forewarned: if you reserve a room (even for a special occasion!), you might show up and find that it is gone.
Great food, fantastic presentation! – Went for lunch, the restaurant wasn't too busy. That is to be expected, it's in a hotel (Westin). Our server was more than knowledgable about the menu, mentioned that the chef worked with Wolfgang Puck prior to coming here. The presentation and portions are the best part of this place. I got a deli sandwich, which was as big as my head. The giant pile of fries was great too. Overall a nice hidden gem downtown.
Very cozy! – Yes, the rooms are small, but that is the charm of an old hotel. We stayed in the Westin over the summer and while the room was small, the bed was VERY comfortable and the room was cool and quiet. The bathroom was updated and clean and the lobby is gorgeous. Connected to the beautiful Southern theatre, it is also easy to walk down to German Village or catch a cab up to the Short North.
Wow, what a let-down – I searched all of Columbus for romantic and high-class hotel. When my boyfriend and I arrived at the Westin, our room had a large coffee spill on the floor (as if the floor had not been checked) and for what we paid, the view and the size of the room were horrible. What we experienced was nothing like the advertisements on many internet sites I looked at. To add to all of this, the service at the complamentary breakfast was slow and the food was not that great.
Distinctive digs with modern amenities and beds so heavenly they're hard to roll out of. – In Short
With programs designed for both business travelers and families, this property takes service seriously. Business travelers can take advantage of guest office rooms stocked with phone, fax and printer. For families, a kids' club provides coloring books, bath toys and a phone line dedicated to bedtime stories. All visitors are treated to signature Heavenly Beds with pillow-top mattresses, cushy down blankets and crisp white sheets ranging in thread count from 180 to 250.
Look Elsewhere – The room was the size of a matchbox, for what we paid you can do much better in the downtown area. The lobby was very impressive but I would never stay there again.
stay no where else – this was great stay. on the same trip we stayed an the Hyatt on Capitol Square and i would stay no where other than the Westin Columbus.
