Sitting in the heart of Columbus is The Lofts. With the street construction it is a little hard to get in and out but what a treat when you get there. Don't be fooled by the lobby. Single station, old desk, but there are only 40-50 rooms. Friendly greeting and efficient check in. We were in room 3301. We got... More

Had to be in Columbus on a day where every downtown hotel room seemed booked (turns out, it was an Olympic Fencing team conference). Could not stay at my favorite, the downtown Hilton. Only availability was at this "Loft" hotel. It's actually connected to a Crown Plaza. That's not an issue. The room I had - touted as 'one of... More

I recently stayed and the Lofts and overall enjoyed the stay. The room is nice, big, and has a lot of windows so it does not seem as dingy and dark as many hotels. The A/C, in their rooms works much better than most from the rooms that I have stayed in, in downtown Columbus. The room was clean and... More

Big rooms with very high ceilings. no lobby to speak of so if your room is not ready, go next door to the Crowne Plaza which is the adjoining building and they share a driveway. The fitness center is more than adequate and is located in the Crowne Plaza with a connecting door on the second floor. Breakfast buffet with... More

This hotel is great! Our room (a superior King) was huge and the bed was really comfortable. We were very well looked after. My requests for extra toiletries and coffee were dealt with immediately.

The fact that this building is an old warehouse makes the rooms and building interesting. Each room is very big and the beds are incredibly comfortable. There is a refrigerator in each room.

Our room was immaculate. We had a king bed with the sitting room. The 3rd floor corner room overlooked the convention center and downtown nightlife.. perfection. I'm a light sleeper so noise woke me up once, but that's saying something. We had the parking and breakfast package which was WORTH the money. The breakfast buffet at adjoining Max & Erma's... More

The lofts hotel is a trendy, quiet, cool place to stay with rooms that have exposed brick and super high ceilings. Food at Max and Erma's is great and the front desk staff were helpful and very accommodating. The only reason I gave the service 4 stars is that housekeeping was less than excellent. They never replenished coffee, cups or... More

Went here for Valentine's weekend, booked in advance.
