I have used this hotel several times for out of town guests. The property is nice and conveniently located. They do a good job maintaining the property. My most recent experience involved a billing mix up. It was a simple thing. I wanted to use my card to pay for the room and the hotel asked for my out of...

This location is conveniently located to a variety of restaurants,grocery and convenience stores. Not sure how the atmosphere is during OSU game season, but it was quiet and a professional atmosphere while I was there. Rooms are spacious and clean. It would be nice to have a free breakfast, but that is not the norm for this chain, so it...

This Hilton is in an excellent location near The Ohio State University. Many nice restaurants and shopping nearby. The pool and hot tub area was in excellent condition and added a relaxing and soothing perk to the stay. Super comfy bedding made for an enjoyable sleep.

An average Hilton hotel, the room was clean and well stocked with linens. At the time there was construction on 270, so it increased our drive times, but all in all not bad for having to be at OSU. Enjoyed the small bar area.

I did not sleep a single wink in this hotel due to the paper thin walls and noisy neighbors on both sides and above us. Staff offered no solution to resolve this issue. I checked out at 7:50 am just to go to another hotel in hopes of getting some sleep.
