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

My husband and I went here for a night away. The I loved the room. It was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. We ordered room service which is from Max & Ermas downstairs.

Went here for Valentine's weekend, booked in advance. The design is what captured my attention when booking it - the husband and myself both love New York style lofts, and this was a way to experience and bring the "big city romance" atmosphere to Columbus! The room was very spacious, clean and gorgeous. We ordered room service for dinner, which... More

We stayed in a standard king room and it was very nice and very clean. This is my preferred hotel in downtown Columbus. It is located at Nationwide and High Street which is the Arena district and it is only a few blocks to the Short North arts district. Our room was very quite even though the hotel was full.... More

We stayed at The Lofts in Columbus, Ohio, on Feb. 8, 2014, for leisure, before attending a Columbus Jazz Orchestra concert the next day. The "loft" ambience is spacious and well-designed while keeping the character of the original building. Bars and restaurants were in abundant supply, and while I had plans for a short walk down Nationwide Boulevard, that plan... More

The Lofts is cool because the designer took the original structure and added modern features. The inside is complete with rafters, photos from the past and the original block and window shapes. The hotel is attached to the Crowne Plaza via the 5th floor. Parking is shared between both hotels. There are bars on both sides and restaurants. Not until... More

Across the way from the Crowne Plaza, this building has been beautifully renovated to retain some of the characteristics of its original purpose. We enjoyed our stay in every way. And it's (in fine weather) walking distance to a wonderful variety of Short North restaurants.
