I am a youth director and brought my youth group to Columbus for the Indiana District Youth Gathering Nov. 11-13. The Gathering reserved a block of rooms at the Clarion so that is where we stayed. I was impressed with how friendly the staff was both to me and my teen group. I love the retro look of the hotel...

We stayed here for a couple of nights as we visited this amazing town. The staff was wonderful and the suite we stayed in very interesting. This is an old Holiday Inn and we wee told the architect visited all the significant places in Columbus....and there are many....and designed it with those visits in mind. He was a picker and...

I am from Columbus so I knew that the Clarion has a decently priced stay for a 20-something's budget like mine. My boyfriend and I had decided on taking a spur of the moment couples weekend but everything in Nashville was booked. Our room at the clarion was very clean and tidy. I did not take a shower in the...

We stayed here before a local high school sporting event. We received a group rate of $88, which was quite reasonable. There was a hot breakfast which was good. The rooms were a little dated, but I slept comfortably. Two things were below average. One, the window from our 5th floor room fully opened. As a dad of an active...

Where do I begin!! Looked the same as it did 30+ years ago, maybe even the same carpets!! 😝 We Had to ask front desk nearly daily for toilet paper. One day rather than clean our room, it was sprayed with perfumes that were sooo offensive. Free breakfast was sad: buffet area was dirty, food slopped everywhere, understaffed and no...

We'd had issues with this hotel previously due to employees and patrons smoking right outside the exterior room doors. Sadly, this issue has not been resolved, and we had to walk through a haze of smoke when exiting our room or the back and side exits of the main hotel area. The floor of the breakfast buffet area had also...

Stayed here for 1 night following the IU football game. Nothing fancy. Room was clean. Bed was very hard. Bathroom is very very small. The places was very busy and a lot of party people when we arrived. We stayed in a 2nd floor room with outside access. We didn't hear any of the party people from our room. Overall,...

My husband and I recently stayed traveled to Columbus for his sister's memorial service. As soon as the staff found out the reason for our visit, they showed us every courtesy possible.
