We got to Canal Winchester last night. We are staying at Jarrod's dad's house. Visiting Grandpap, Grandma Carol and Ben. Not wanting to spend Porters birthday on the road we spent the day at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. Porter had a great day starting with a present first thing (camera) and French toast. The zoo was amazing. Hot and exhausting, but awesome!! Had a great time celebrating Porters birthday with Grandpap, Grandma Carol and ...

Breakfast in Columbus

A travel blog entry by stickelsrtrip

... a quick search led to a place which no longer existed. So yeah that worked out well. We only briefly entered an area which appeared to be bordering the "inner city" so that we did get a quick glimpse of some cultural alleys and buildings. Moral of the story : when in doubt Frisch's will always suffice. Next up ...

... how I know. Oil change also completed today. R series bikes are so much easier to work on than my old F650 GS. 15 minutes vs 45 for the oil change.  Trip is planned through getting on to Newfoundland. With regards to packing, it's mostly an exercise in what not to take. Good problem ...

... the device. For the SPOT, I managed to find a RAM mount that was hidden away in a drawer, so that solves a problem. Then needed to drill some extra holes in a mount plate to attach that to the RAM mount. Now, need to get the right screws to recess into the mount plate so I can Gorilla glue a big velcro patch on the mount ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Columbus at Capitol Square Hotel

    Very friendly staff - great location

    from

    First of all...the staff was very friendly. Upon check-in the clerk greeted me with a bright smile....asked how my trip in to Columbus was....after receiving my room key, she reminded me of her name - I think it was Stacy - and told me to contact her if I needed anything else. Immediately I felt welcome. The rooms here are very large, especially the bathroom. Bathroom was very tasteful. The beds are great, and I understand are relatively new. Valet service was good, except upon checkout, but that was due to the mad rush of people. The hotel was very vibrant while I was there. For those not familiar with Columbus, the hotel is across the street from the Capitol, next door to the Ohio Theater, and connected to the Capitol Square Mall. I definitely recommend, and will stay here again on a future visit.

    Great beginning... miserable end

    from

    We arrived for a 3 day 2 night stay "girls long weekend" and stayed here as I was a Hyatt Gold Member. At the outset we found the place to be very nice. Rooms were spacious and the bathroom huge. The heat in the room was overwhelming and while the person from Engineering managed to get the temperature down a lot, it was still a little stifling in the room. Also, our room key cards seemed to die after a few hours and we had to get them reset about 5 times over the trip, which made us well-known to the front desk staff. We used the valet service which was exemplary for our many trips throughout the city, and also used both hotel bars (one on one night, the other the second) as starting points for our evening outings.

    Great Renovation - Impeccable Service

    from

    I just returned from the Hyatt on Capital Square. I went there with my sister to attend and old friends 50th birthday party. I always read the reviews on trip advisor and I must say that this was much better then I expected. First of all, we got a great rate, (AAA) - $116.00 per night and it included a full breakfast for each of the nights we were there. The room was beautiful, clean, fresh and with one of the most comfortable beds I ever slept in. I heard that all the rooms were just renovated, so I guess we were lucky in that respect. Everyone who worked there was so nice and helpful and the food in the restaurant was very good. I don't know when I will be returning to Columbus again, but I would definitely stay there.

    Renovation update

    from

    in response to the reviews concerning the quality of the rooms:

    the Hyatt on capitol square is undergoing a room renovation. Several floors are completed and the final product is beautiful. the level of service they provide combined with the new rooms make this property a 5 star experience. I will continue to stay there and encourage others to do the same.

    From the frying pan into the fire!

    from

    We stayed at the Hyatt Regency, then moved to the Hyatt on Capitol Square November 2004. It's hard to say which is worse. Dirty, surly, and the restaurant at the Hyatt Regency is to be avoided at all costs if you want to eat on the same day you order. Watch out for their reservation policies, especially if you book on the internet!

    Great service, bad rooms

    from

    I stated here in October 2004. My room rate was very high for a city this size ($290), but it was the only available room in downtown Columbus.

    Unexpected Surprise

    from

    I recently had a business trip to Columbus and was in search of a hotel. Most of the reviews for most of hotels were mediocre at best. Because of the location of the Hyatt at Capital Square, I took a chance. At first they said that they rate was non-refundable but after some back and forth they changed the policy. The hotel lobby is warm and inviting. The rooms are pretty much standard Hyatt - carpet seemed new, bed was pretty comfortable, pretty much what I expect for a Hyatt. What impressed me the most, however, was the level of service. Everyone, from the bell staff who got me a taxi, to the waitress in the restaurant, to the waiter at the cafe right outside the hotel (I believe also associated with the hotel) was about as nice and helpful as I could have ever hoped for. So, for this reason (and the location), I recommend this place. I am a Gold Passport member so maybe this got me a nice room, but if you have business at or near the capital building, this is pretty good.

    We loved the Hyatt!

    from

    After reading the previous two reviews, I was a bit apprehensive about staying at the Hyatt on Capitol Square. But I had already booked the room on the Internet at a "senior" rate that was too good to pass up, plus it was adjacent to the theater where were seeing The Lion King this week. Our room was absolutely beautiful (and clean), beds were comfortable, and the bathroom was large, with both a TV and phone in the bath! At the special rate we had booked, we also received a full, sit-down breakfast in the restaurant at no charge. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the hotel location is great -- with the City Center mall, the Capitol building and the theater all steps away. We would definitely stay here again -- even without a senior discount.

    Disappointing

    from

    This Hyatt has all of the hard stuff down: a good staff and a great location (the gym has a great view of the Capitol). Unfortunately, the rooms are desperately in need of an update. The first room I got had severe water damage that had been half-heartedly fixed, when I complained I was assigned a very smokey room. When I complained about that, I got they said there were no rooms with King beds left - yet, when I checked in they insisted they were so empty that they wouldn't open the Regency Club and they wouldn't have room service before 6pm.

    When I called them on the lie, they just shrugged. This is one of the most disappointing Hyatt properties. If they fixed up the rooms, and opened the lounge in December, they would really have something.

    Needs a little work

    from

    Needs a little renovation, Look up Pete the bartender on the second floor. he'll make it all better.
