I have stayed in lesser priced hotels all over the country that were more buttoned up with amenities and service than this hotel...it appears to be the step child of its sister Crowne Plaza hotel next door. We booked this hotel based on lack of availability of other choices for our event at Ohio State Stadium even though it was... More

I've stayed at the Lofts before and wanted to update after my second visit. It's an overall nice place and location is perfect. A tip I found after my second visit is to try and get a room on the back side of the building. The front side faces Nationwide Blvd and in unless you are used to road noise,... More

Spent a night here with my 2 boys (8 & 13) on a Sunday to see a WWE PPV at Nationwide Arena. Price was a bit higher than usual, probably due to the demand, but that is to be expected. The hotel itself was very nice, the room was huge with exposed brick and high ceilings, just like a LOFT!... More

The room was very roomy and casual modem. The room was very clean. The hotel was walking distance to Nationwide Arena were we attended a concert. We were able to walk to Einstein bagels for breakfast. Starbucks was right outside the arena that was only approximately three blocks from the hotel. We were within walking distance of the art festival... More

Did some research on the Lofts and got a top floor room and it was as expected; spacious and funky (good funky, not bad funky) HVAC is a little loud. But I knew that going in because I did my homework. Nice bathroom, everything is clean. Nothing 'creepy' about the hallways at all. Plenty of electrical outlets in the room... More

Stayed at The Loft for 2 nights. The emergency alarm went off at 4 AM. There was no staff in the hotel so we did not know what to do. We went down the stairs towards the back exit and stayed outside for a while where there was no staff to let us know what was happening. Went to the... More

We have stayed here a few times over the years and it seems to be slipping each time, especially the lobby area. Heard there was a change of management a little while ago. The elevator up button was still not fixed from our last visit. Rooms are still spacious and we like supreme with lots of windows. We did not... More

Stayed here for a night last weekend when we cam into town for some live music. It was my first trip Columbus so I wasn't sure what to expect. This hotel, although a little pricey, was a really cool unique place to stay. It was walking distance from all the downtown entertainment venues, and some very nice restaurants. Nice, clean,...

My husband and I recently stayed here while on a trip to Columbus to visit my daughter and go to a Clippers game. The room was very large, with an extremely comfortable bed. It is right above a Max and Erma's, which offers a breakfast buffet. The hotel was also very quiet. It was within walking distance of the convention... More
