We stayed in the Crowne Plaza when in Columbus for an OSU football game. They were happy to give a discount because of the event. Check in staff were efficient and friendly. The room was large with good amenities and the bed was comfortable.

My son and I like to stay at this hotel when we are in Columbus for a Blue Jackets. The hotel was extremely busy the night that we were there, but the check-in process went very well and the person checking us in was very friendly and helpful. Room was very clean and comfortable.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights during the week of Oct. 1-6. The front desk staff were very nice especially given that we checked in so late on the night of the 1st.

This hotel is nice but no bells or whistles. It is clean and a good place for the money. It needs some updating in its appearance. The bar area is nice but lobby is average. Beds are a bit firm but comfortable. The ac works good.

When I got married downtown, I booked a block of rooms at the Crowne Plaza for guests coming in from out of town. The service was great throughout the whole process.

I was there earlier this week which happened to coincide with The President's Cup.

I stayed at the Crowne Plaza with my husband and my daughter this weekend. From the beginning it was a nightmare. It took me 45 mins to get into Valet park. Check in was rather easy. Our room was clean but I was taller than the shower head. The bed was hard as a rock I could barely sleep. We...

Stayed here for 3 nights during the second week of September 2013. Rooms are average for a hotel of this price. Service was average too.
