Pros - Location is good for downtown access. Cons - Rooms and the hotel in general are worn down. The carpets were worn out and the hotel smelled strongly of cheap air freshener. The mattress was OK but there was no duvet, they provided a "cover" which was about the

Dear genevakiwi, We are sorry to see that you didn't have a good stay with us, in a few more weeks all the rooms available will be renovated so I am confident the experience will be completely different. We a public parking garage behind the Hotel where you can self park at your convenience. Chili & Beer are among our guests favorites, I am sorry it didn't come at the right taste & temperature. Please let us know the next time you are planning to come to Columbus to make it up, I am sharing your perception with my team to make sure this doesn't reoccur in the future!

The hotel staff were kind and helpful to be sure. We were originally given room 541. Walking the hallway to meet my mother in the room reminded me of an awful hotel experience I had in my early adulthood. The hallway carpet was dirty, in poor condition, and had an unpleasant

The lofts is connected to, owned and run by the crowne plaza. Its definitely a unique boutique style hotel with open large spaces. Seems more like an apartment than a hotel but all the convenience of the crowne plaza. Valet parking, room service, and a bridge all the way

First of all the staff was incredible here. My friends and I got to this hotel rather late, close to 2am, and they were super friendly. Without us even asking they told us where we could order food from and how they could have beer delivered. It felt like real celebrity

Is this close to the brewery district ? within walking distance ?
Not overly far for European walking standards but the free CBus is worth looking at for getting you around town

Bed bugs are a very serious issue in our industry today. This is not a subject to be taken lightly and one that is acted on immediately. Although we have our hotel inspected regularly for any evidence of bed bugs, we also follow up immediately on any guest concern. We pride ourselves on the level of service that we provide to all guests and take every precautionary measure necessary to ensure guest safety and prevention of such issues. One of the ways we try to be proactive is by using the bedbug-resistant covers on each and every bed. We appreciate and are thankful for the concern and awareness of our travelers which would enable us to eliminate a problem immediately should it arise.

"Be certain to ask for a room as far away from the construction as possible, if you want to sleep very late."
"If you are going to Nationwide Arena for concert, this is the place to stay - within walking distance."
"South side rooms have no harsh morning sun, but have a view of the parking garage."
