We really enjoyed the convenience of staying here during our recent dance competition. Having access to the Convention Center, without going outside, was great! Valet parking was efficient and breakfast was very good at Max and Erma's next door. For the price we paid, we should not have had to pay extra for the breakfast, however. We had a small... More

I think this is a great place. It is clean, modern and located near restaurants, convention center and major highways. I try to stay here whenever I am in town. I think the price is a bit higher than it should be fora Midwestern town. Valet service was not very attentive. Front desk was awesome. The minute there was a... More

The Crowne Plaza is in a great location, but the atmosphere is definitely for the business traveler. I picked this particular hotel because it was close to Nationwide Arena and had a pool and game room for the kids. The rooms were smaller than what we're used to and we usually stay at Holiday Inn Express or Fairfield Inn brand... More

I stayed here with my daughter and her friend in January 2014 for an anime convention. It is conveniently located in downtown Columbus, next to the Greater Columbus Convention Center, in the Arena District. The lobby is large with seating, a coffee shop and a fireplace and nice big windows looking out on the area. The staff was very friendly... More

I frequent this Hotel for business trips. The location is ideal for downtown. The facility is what you expect from a Crowne Plaza. The real standout, however, is the staff.

The Hotel has some of the best service in Columbus. The staff at the front desk is perfect, the rooms are cleaned perfectly and the coffee and bar staff are very curtious.

The location of this hotel is great; right in the middle of the arena district in in Columbus. Upon arrival we were greeted with a line of traffic around the corner. We sat in our car for about 30 minutes waiting to check in. I called to ask what we should do and was told just to wait in line...really?... More

I had a very large room, so big that it was very hard to see the big screen TV from the bed. The room was nicely decorated and very clean. The toilet ran constantly and since no one came to fix it after I called I had to shut off the water valve. Room service was excellent and the cost... More
