The Western Extended Stay Hotel in Columbus, Ohio, converts to a Days Inn & Suites

The Western Extended Stay Hotel in Columbus, Ohio, completed a conversion to become a Days Inn & Suites, a branding move GM Tim Criss believes will boost business at the hotel located on the city’s eastern edge.

The business, which is owned by a group of local investors, officially made the name change March 6. The transition to a Days Inn & Suites had little impact on the hotel’s 70 guestrooms, aside from minor bedding changes.

Each room still has a kitchenette with a full-size refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, cookware and utensils. Guests can choose from standard rooms with either two queen-size beds or one king-size bed, and the suites include a living room/office area with a sleeper sofa and second television.
