We chose to stay at the Crowne Plaza in downtown Columbus due to a dance competition being held next door at the convention center. The location is excellent and made our weekend at the competition a positive experience. The hotel room was smaller than I'm used to, but extremely clean and comfortable. The hotel was really busy as there was...

Came to a local convention and stayed at the Crowne Plaza because it doesn't have the problems like at the Hyatt when you can't get on the elevator because people are messing with the buttons. The room service was great and the bartender was awesome.

Stayed at this hotel while attending a show for work. The hotel itself was clean and the employees were all friendly from the front desk to housekeeping. This is my second time staying at this property and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a consistent place to stay.

I recently stayed here for an event at the Convention Center. It was very convenient to be able to get to the Convention Center without even needing to go outside. The hotel met the level of comfort and service that I have come to expect from Crowne Plaza properties.

I stayed at the Crowne Plaza in downtown Columbus for one night while attending an on-site conference. There are some good things going for this venue - nice location in the heart of the convention center / arena area; attentive service in the conference facilities; strong wi-fi throughout the building in both guest rooms and conference areas.
