Columbus Downtown - The Lofts
Party Palace
The actual hotel is very nice and in a great location. However, as far as service goes it feels like an after thought. This hotel is connected to the one next to it, and it seems that the general focus is on that hotel. No staff could be seen at The Lofts all weekend. Somebody renting a room on our floor had an extremely loud party all night long. I called down for security at 3 in the morning and it took them far too long to respond. After responding the people seemed to move to another room and then proceeded to leave their television on full blast for the remainder of the night. Upon checking out, nobody asked about our stay or made any attempt to compensate us for the inconvenience. I feel robbed as that night was hardly worth what we paid for the hotel. While I realize that this is more the individuals fought who were having the party, it should be incumbent on the hotel to take responsibility. I can’t help but think if there was any staff in the building over night they would’ve been aware of what was going on.
