This review is from October 2016.
3 am wake up call!! Luckily the car was loaded the night before so all we had to do is get dressed and pile into the car! This drive could be a lot of fun if you stop along the way. Upper State New York is filled with natural sights to see and well rated wineries. Unfortunately, we didn't get any of those stops. We decided to make dinner plans with family in Ohio so we need to get to Ohio, check into our hotel, and head to their house asap.
We booked the Homewood Suites in Dublin Ohio for our stay. Greg and I had stayed at this hotel the year before. Sadly the hotel wasn't up to last years standards. As a Diamond member and one using our points for this stay we found the value lacking. The rugs throughout the property were covered in crumbs, the walls and elevators were horribly scraped. We were given room 208 a 1 bedroom suite. The room offered the amenities we needed for a 1 night stay however the room wasn't perfect either. The bedding for the pull out couch was riddled with holes, the curtains were stained, and the desk chair looked dirty.
We did a quick refresh and headed out to visit with family. Before arriving we stopped at Mozart's bakery in Columbus OH for some delicious looking goodies. That night we were a group of 9 and 2 dogs who got to hang out, eat delicious tacos, and have lots of laughs!!
