OSU rents out dormitories for conferences and other "special guests" during the Summer months. My room (#136) was in the Jones Graduate Tower on North Campus. My private single had the basics- bed, table, chair, private shower/toilet, closet, fridge and microwave. TV may be watched off the Lobby in the common area on the ground floor. Good security via key card. An excellent base to explore the OSU campus and neighborhood. Make sure to ask for extra towels, bring flip flops and housekeeping is available for longer stays. Very efficient check-in staff with handy maps of the immense OSU campus. Location could not have been better.
Excellent location to explore OSU.
While staying for two nights in Columbus, Ohio, I decided to stay right downtown for the convenience and so that we could walk everywhere. It was an excellent decision.
The Hyatt on Capitol Square was the perfect choice. It's located connected to the Columbus City Center Mall, adjacent to the famous Ohio Theatre and less than a block from the Statehouse and Capitol Square. It's also within walking distance of German Village and The Old Deaf School Topiary Garden.
It has a wonderful Plaza Restaurant where we ate two breakfasts and one dinner. There's also Darby's Sports Bar which also serves food. In warm weather, the seasonal Darby's Outdoor Cafe is open where you are able to eat light meals al fresco around the fountain and statue.
We used the Valet Parking, storing our car for two nights. I chose the "Senior Citizen Business Plan" because it includes breakfast, wireless internet, and the "Grand Bed". A bonus that we did not expect was Business clients are on the 18-20th floors with private elevator services. The floors were so quiet, and the room was spectacular.
Our room had a separate work area, large screen TV, three telephones, in-room safe, miscellaneous toiletries, iron/ironing board, coffee maker, Cable'satellite TV channels, AM/FM clock radio, morning newspaper, and video checkout.
The service at the Hyatt was outstanding, especially James who brought up our luggage and answered all our "silly" questions.
The hotel is in a perfect downtown location across the street from the state capitol. Amenities include AM/FM alarm clock radio, cable movie channels, coffee maker with coffee, electronic door lock, full bath amenities, hairdryer, data port internet access, individual climate control, iron, ironing board, television with remote control. If you bring a car, you will have to pay $18.00 for valet service.
Some of the outstanding characteristis available include, turndown service, video account review, video messages, video check-out, voice mail, in-room pay movies and a fully furnished workout facility on the 22nd floor.
