I want to give a huge shout out to the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott (Columbus, OSU)! They do it right!
Most of the time we are not hesitant to voice a complaint. But how often do we give a compliment? That is what I want to do today. I want to compliment the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott (Columbus, OSU).
From the moment we walked into the lobby we received a friendly greeting and a genuine smile. Not a forced smile, not a “I would rather be anywhere but here” smile, but a true “We are glad you are here” smile! So very nice.
On this particular day it was my mother-in-law, Monika, and myself staying here. Unfortunately, we were not here on vacation or to have a good time. The following morning Monika was having a procedure done at the Ross Heart Hospital at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus, OH. There was a lot riding on this particular procedure and we both were a little bit anxious.
The vibrant colors of the lobby immediately lifted our spirits. The quiet and friendly nature of the hotel staff was very calming. We greatly appreciated this!
They had the most amazing lime water. So absolutely simple and extremely refreshing. How gorgeous is this? Almost too pretty to drink, almost! 🙂 It was so good!
The flower arrangements were beautiful! I over heard a staff member tell a lady that they put fresh flowers out daily. That didn’t surprise me at all, but his next question to her did. As he was changing out the flowers he asked her if she would like to enjoy the previous day’s flowers in her room. They were still extremely fresh and pretty. What a great idea. Instead of throwing them away, they give them to hotel patrons to enjoy in their rooms! Such a nice touch.
Here is another flower arrangement that found a home for a little while longer.
The breakfast area was very large and still they managed to give it an intimate feel.
The bar area was very nice and during the evening several guests had drinks and enjoyed watching the Olympics. As Monika was having a procedure early the next morning, we decided we had better pass on a drink. 😉
Coffee and juice is available 24/7. Being the avid coffee drinker that I am, I appreciated the fact that it was kept hot and fresh!
We both had an amazing night of sleep. The beds and the pillows were super comfy!
The bathroom was nicely decorated and very, very clean!!!
The shower was very clean, very large and the water was very hot! Have I mentioned before that I love my bath/shower water almost as hot as I like my coffee? 🙂
The pool area is very nice and relaxing. Perfect place to hang out after a long day of traveling.
They even have a fitness area. No excuses to skip your morning routine!
We had an amazing stay at the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott (Columbus, OSU). Their address is 3031 Olentangy River Rd, Columbus, OH 43202. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the vicinity.
Have a great day and please remember to give more compliments. If we all would give more compliments than we do complaints, what a nicer world it would be!
