This Courtyard is located in the small cluster of hotels around the Convention Center and Arena District and it's another accommodation worthy of consideration. Expect typical Courtyard features and amenities, including a staff favorite - the new Courtyard bedding. There's also the complimentary WiFi in guest rooms and hot breakfast for a fee. With 5 floors and 149 rooms, this Courtyard is smaller than many, which means quicker service.
The hotel gym has been upgraded for the better. In the past, we recommended skipping the gym. Now, take a peek before looking elsewhere. Life Fitness treadmills and ellipticals fill the cardio space, while dumbbells and a multigym can satisfy a quick strength session.
If you're looking for more, walk 10 minutes to the Arena District Athletic Club ($15). Swimmers can take a peek around the corner for a dip at the YMCA ($15 - potential for free pass), or hop in a car and lap at The Ohio State University Recreational Pools ($10 - 11 minute drive). Another lappable option is the Columbus Aquatic Center ($5), located less than 2 miles north of Courtyard.
