4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW via mobile

Clean room. Friendly staff. Limited breakfast selection. Ideal for downtown, convention or short north district. Parking in city garage for about $17 a day cheaper than valet. Rooms refurbished but the hallways and common areas haven't been. But that's better than the reverse. I would certainly stay there again.

We always have a good experience while staying at the Crown. The staff from the Valet, front desk and housekeeping are friendly and professional. Keep up the good work, looking forward to our next visit to the Columbus area.the Crown is close to great restaurants within walking distance and I enjoy the Coffee shop located near the front desk.

The old digs were getting old. Just walked into floor 12 and the update was good. Walked into my room and the update is 5 star. Nicely done update to a week deserved staff and location. Disregard my previous 3 star rating. Great location friendly staff and bitterly cold in Jan.

The hotel is very nice and for being downtown, it was reasonably priced at $135/ night Corp rate. Parking was valet at $24. I don't like valet parking but realize it comes with the location. Close to some great places to eat within walking distances. The breakfast for members was good. The instant coffee is the only negative. They did... More

JD, the manager is the type of person who loves to tell you "I'm sorry sir/mam, I can not do this for you." He loves to deliver bad news and have the opportunity to screw with someones day and he's rude in your face. They should replace him. His co worker Dominique, very nice and helpful. I asked for a...

This is a very nice hotel. The location is great. The amenities were very nice and the staff was exceptionally nice as well. The only problem I ran into was parking. Hotel parking is down a dark alley and in a public garage or you can pay $24 for valet. The view from my room was of the other side... More

The Crowne Plaza Columbus Downtown is perfectly situated to get to anywhere in Columbus easily. I have stayed here many times with friends so that we can be close to events in the Arena District. The staff is always courteous and goes out of their way to accommodate requests - even for large, multi-room groups.

The Crowne Plaza Downtown is a pretty good, comfortable hotel and its staff was enjoyable. Even if my room was clean, definitely enough for my stay, in general the atmosphere is démodé: an easy restyling could improve the impact. From the airport it is more or less 30 minutes far, 25/30 dollars.

Did a one night stay here on a recent business trip to Columbus. At $135/night it was one of the cheaper places that I could find downtown. I was not disappointed with the hotel and it served its purpose. For starters, it is located in the newer Arena district with plenty of restaurants/bars within walking distance.

We were in town for a Columbus Bluejackets game and booked our room through a discount site. Got a great price on a great room. We used the valet parking ($24) and it was worth it for the ease and convenience. Valet workers were nice and quick to retrieve our car in the morning. Check in line was a little... More
