Came to Columbus for a trade show. All of the hotels near the Convention Center were booked so I wound up at this Holiday Inn. I wanted to stay at the Hyatt or the Crowne Plaza, which are right across the street from the Convention Center but I guess I was too late. This hotel is really bad. It's old... More

I stayed at the Holiday Inn ai downtown Columbus recently and I have to warn you not to stay there no matter how cheap the rooms are, the place is old and in a ghetto part of the city by the bus station and a homeless shelter. the desk staff is rude and there are no amenities, except on weekends....

I stayed here recently, and what I will say is that this is a very dated hotel that has been updated as much as possible without a total gutting. But you do get the feeling that you are in an older hotel. Our room was large, but the bathroom was quite small. The cosmetic efforts are not all for naught.... More

Stayed here for the Columbus Open Chess Tournament over the weekend and the entire hotel was booked up for the weekend (and longer) due to some other conferences going on at the same time. However, the staff was all very friendly, especially those working at the front desk. Room was extremely quiet (we were at the end of the hall,... More

Stayed here for Pride Weekend 2014. The amazing staff made up for the mediocore room and facilites. The location is good, but the complimentary shuttle made it even more convenient. Not every floor has an ice machine and that was a little inconvenient. I felt a little ripped off being charged $10 a night to park...the gates were up the... More

I stayed here for one night whilst touring the US on business. A fairly typical Holiday Inn experience but that is just what I wanted so no problem. The check-in staff were particularly friendly. Although car parking is supposed to be $10 the barriers were up when I arrived and left!

This hotel is in need of updating but it has everything you need. The hotel was very clean and our room was also clean. The air conditioner was a little noisy but I like a little white noise so it didn't bother me. We stayed there because we had theater tickets for the Ohio theater and the location was great.... More

Heather at the front desk was great. She got us into our room early and we asked for an extra blanket and it was delivered immediately. Room was clean. Breakfast buffet was good. The only negative was the slow tub drain.
