Part of the Easton Town Center development, this Residence Inn is the closest hotel to Life Time Fitness and the primary reason for our recommendation. Even if we had business in downtown Columbus, we would likely stay here or at the Courtyard and take advantage of the awesome stay/play option with Life Time Fitness and convenience to other athletic-minded traveler favorites (e.g., Trader Joe's, etc.).
As far as the hotel is concerned, count on typical Residence Inn features and amenities. Clean rooms with separate living and sleeping quarters, free high speed internet service, complimentary hot breakfasts, and discounted workout access to Life Time Fitness are the valuable perks here. Utilize the sweat benefit because the onsite exercise room is tiny and sports only four mediocre cardio machines. However, there is an outdoor sport court. Unique!!
If Life Time isn't enough for you lappers, check out the Columbus Aquatic Center ($5/day - 15 minute drive), The Ohio State University Recreational Pools ($10/day - 18 minute drive), or the downtown YMCA ($15/day with free pass potential - 15 minute drive).
