Country Inn & Suites, Port Columbus Airport

Rating:
+4
Pros:reasonable price, newly remodeled, great bed, nice spa
Cons:none offhand
The Bottom Line:
Why-O, Why-O do I continue to return to Ohio?

Another trip to Ohio, another hotel.   This time I selected Country Inn & Suites, located adjacent to the Port Columbus Airport.    I find most of the accommodations near the airport are well appointed, maintained, have a great staff and are loaded with amenities.    I wasn't disappointed this time either.

Amenities [room & hotel]:
~Hi-speed internet
~fitrness center
~indoor pool & spa
~complimentary hot breakfast buffet
~cable TV
~coffee maker
~iron/ironing board
~work desk
~children 18 & under stay free
~complimentary airport shuttle
~same day valet dry cleaning
~read it and return lending library

My room:
I chose the Country King Suite because I was going to be there several days and wanted the convenience of the fridge & microwave.    I also liked the fact that it was a suite type room with separate living and sleeping rooms, divided by french doors.  The sofa, which was quite comfortable to just relax on, also made up into a queen size bed.   Televisions were in both the living & sleeping areas, as well as telephones.   The bathroom was of ample size with soft towels and double ply toilet paper.  

They also have a country double queen room available, comprising of two queen beds but no separation between living/sleeping area. 

Breakfast:
hot waffles, muffins, fresh fruit, bagels, breakfast drinks, coffee/tea, grits, oatmeal, yogurt, danishes, wheat bread.   There is also a rotating breakfast of omelet burrito, french toast, bacon, sausage, biscuits & gravy & rosemary potatoes.   Breakfast is served 6-9 M-F; 7-10 S, S.   All breakfast items are free and plentiful and a respite from eating out at a restaurant so early in the morning.

Overall:
I did not avail myself of the fitness center but I did soak up the spa to my hearts content.   The heated indoor pool was still a bit too chill for me.    The pool area was appointed with plentiful lounge chairs and towels, accessed by your room key.   I enjoyed the breakfast variety as they switched it out twice during my stay.

I found the staff very enjoyable and helpful.   Housekeeping was prompt on your requests and since I discovered I had forgotten my toothpaste ... again ... I received a complimentary service at the front desk.  

The room I selected was large with great blackout drapes and for once the room temperature was easy to maintain.   Television reception was clear and internet was fast and free.   I really enjoyed kicking back in my room each night after my trip to the spa, sipping a hot tea and propping my feet up to catch some local television.

Rating this on a scale from the other two place I have stayed on my last two trips, Best Western PLUS and Embassy Suites I would probably bring this one in at third.   Not because I found anything particularly bad but the spa at Best Western was uber-outstanding and the room amenities at Embassy Suites was geared more for an extended stay than Country Inn.   However, the bed at Country Inn was far more comfortable and I liked the defined areas of the room.    I'd stay here again, if I wasn't on a quest to try out all the hotels in Columbus.
