If you need a great place to stay in the Columbus, GA area, choose the Residence Inn. It is your typical Residence Inn, but what makes this place stand out is the entire staff. From the general manager (who personally met me when I was checking in) down to the cleaning staff, they are the most genuine, concerned and overall friendliest folks I've ever met. This includes all of the different hotel brands and locations that I am forced to stay at during my travels. This place needs to be formally recognized by Marriott corporate.
