Quick check in and out. Hotel staff was very friendly. The fitness room was open 24 hours, the breakfast selection was excellent (bacon, eggs, sausage, fruit, cereal, muffins, etc.), and the room was very clean

I chose this hotel because it is within walking distance to the Schottenstein Center, where many concerts are held. Room was comfortable and clean; I didn't even hear the heater running. Staff was very helpful. The free breakfast was good and plentiful. I will definitely come back!

I stayed here for a pre-operation morning stop over. My daughter's surgery was at 5:00 am and the hotel is close to OSU medical center. The women at check in was quite pleasant despite the lobby being a mess due to their polishing the floor and causing customers to walk half way around the hotel in a blowing cold snow.... More

I rarely write reviews but I felt compelled to do so to share my experience. I had never stayed at Holiday Inn Express and I must say the room was very nice. The bed was comfortable. I think the breakfast was good and the variety was fairly good. The staff, Annette and Anthony were nice and friendly. My family was... More
