Great stay
Very nice, comfortable room

Fair 4.0
Camping at the Marriot
Everything from the facilities and service was nice as expected. Apparently the hotel, for some reason, allowed a truck pulling a huge 5th wheel camper as well as another truck and trailer park in the already insanely packed lot. There already were zero parking spaces then these 2 trailer set ups were parked long ways across multiple prime parking spaces which was bad enough. Then I land a first floor room along the backside of the hotel exactly where these travel trailers were parked so I got to hear their generators run non-stop all night long. Not to mention we also had to evacuate the building at approximately 2 a.m. for a false fire alarm on top of the no parking and loud generators from the campers taking up the parking spots.

Best Hotel Ever!
Seriously the best hotel ever! Clean and the staff is extremely friendly. We have stayed twice now and will for sure be back!

Very good 8.0
Nice room and bed.
Pool is really small and cloudy. There were 4 or 5 chairs in the whole pool area and it was impossible to find from our room. The room was great. The smell from the dumster in the parking lot was horrific.

Our Stay in Columbus
We received a great welcome from Sean when we checked in. He was accommodating and helped to change our room from the first floor to the second. We were around the back facing the parking lot. Everything was quiet. Room was comfortable and very clean. I would stay there again. My only concern was that the in-room safe was on the top shelf of the closet - hard to reach if you are shorter - and did not accommodate a regular sized lap top.

Pleasant Stay
The hotel was beautiful! I did have blood on my sheets upon arrival however. Once the front desk was called this was quickly resolved though. I also felt the breakfast buffet was very overpriced and lacked variety.

Family fun!
Wonderful Hotel. Best Marriott we have stayed in. People were so friendly. The kids really enjoyed themselves and felt welcomed by all. The room was a bit tighter than we would have liked for 5, but we definitely were comfortable.
