The hotel is very near to the Convention Center, Nationwide Plaza, and the Hockey Arena. That is the good news. The staff is very nice, but don't seem to have a lot to work with.

My friends and I were just in town for Buckeye Country Superfest. We chose this hotel because it offered a discount through the concert website, and it was a short car ride to the stadium. We were greeted pleasantly upon check-in, and each front desk personnel that I spoke with was professional and courteous. The one person even gave us... More

I stayed at the Crowne Plaza while attending a trade show in Columbus. I have stayed at Crowne Plazas in other cities and this did not meet the quality of the other properties. The rooms were not cleaned until late in the day. The health club was not well maintained. Front desk personnel not very well trained.

First, the basics of this hotel are adequate: clean room, comfortable bed. However, on 6/3/15, at 4:55am, everyone in the hotel was woken with a loud voice blaring from a speaker in the rooms, announcing a test of their emergency evacuation system. For the next 10 minutes, there was a seemingly endless loop of instructions, alarms going off throughout the... More
