Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 more guests = NO PARKING
At check in, the counter clerk was instructing everyone where to park as he assigned rooms. Pull around and go in the 3rd door on the right... HA! pull around and there are ZERO places to park. Walk 500 yards around the building as there are only doors at the end of the hall ways, then squeeze through the smokers AFTER you climb the 17 stairs to get in the door.
Disappointing to say the least.

My stay this year was better than I had expected. The service and staff were above and beyond this time and I will be returning next year for sure. The location of my room this time was perfect. And the pool was very relaxing at 8am and built the hunger for the buffett that I indulged in after the swim.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KG05 Clean room and good food but cold showers and poor thermostat control.
The room itself was fine, looked as expected, and seemed clean. We had a hard time regulating the temperature in our room. It was often too cold or too warm despite our adjustments of the thermostat, and we had to keep changing the thermostat to try to maintain a comfortable temperature. The worst part was that after about 10 minutes, the shower was freezing cold and would occasionally cycle from freezing cold to scorching hot. A hotel should not have this kind of water problem. It happened both mornings we were there. The chairs we used for our conference were very uncomfortable to sit in for a full day. The food was good.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by triadwheels Bad day in Columbus
After IHG encouraged me to try other hotels in the IHG family, we searched out a Holiday Inn and were hugely disappointed.
Difficult check in - under trained staff
Hotel is huge - hallways are a maze and old and worn out
Staff drinking in the bar
Food in lounge terrible
Hallways feel unsafe
Hinges bad on room entrance door - had to lift door up to engage the deadbolt.
Did not get recognized as an IHG member

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tara22 Nice quality
I do recommend bringing ear plugs, if you are anything but a heavy sleeper, as the room walls are very thin (We could hear what the rooms on either side were watching on TV), and I wasn't thrilled to find hair on my towels, or the dirty kleenex under the curtains, but those issues aside, the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The room service was excellent (first time we've tried room service, but it was extremely affordable!), and the rest of the hotel seemed rather clean and fresh. I loved the decor in the rooms, the yellows and blues were very homey after most hotels have switched to the 'modern' looks of steel and black. We were sad to have to leave when our trip was over, and I'll be booking at this hotel if we're back in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MutantRIC Great place but old layout
This is an excellent hotel to stay at; however the layout is very old. For this trip I was on the road for a month so I had a lot of stuff packed with me, initially I was given a room in the middle of the 3rd floor; however there is only one elevator and it is on the inside of the hotel layout and there was no parking or temporary loading area to accommodate this. Fortunately the front desk was able to give me a room closer to the front doors.
The staff is always pleasant and helpful and the restaurant is good. The hotel is in a good location and I do recommend the place for your next stay.

Older facility in need of upgrade. Bar area and bar staff were friendly.Breakfast staff- non cusomer friendly. Front Desk staff unequipped and inflexible. Got a group rate so the value wasn't bad, but I would have paid more to have a better experience. Stayed at a HI-Express the week before and the experience was 100% better than my weekend at Columbus N - I-270 Worthington

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by genegene611 total rip off staying at this location
My wife and I stayed at this hotel about 4 weeks ago it had snowed a little the parking lot was not plowed very good and also the access to our room from out side was not shoveled and the steps going down to them was very slippery it was li8ke that for the day and a half we stayed there. Needs something done to the outside appearance looks kind of run down. but that's that. I was billed an extra 250.00 for smoking in the room. which is a total lie my wife and I are 66 years old and don't smoke when I questioned the lady after my credit card called (fraud dept.) asking about the charge on Friday of the week we stayed there I said they must have billed it wrong I would check that's when I was told it was for smoking. they rip people off doing that it really sucks to have no recourse I would never recommend this or any of the holiday inn hotels. When I sent a email to them thay said they would send it to the hotel for a response within 48 hours... that was over a week ago and still no response from them. overall very poorly run place and no real outdoor maintenance after a snow. Parking lot needs repair

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steve123456 Room Heater / Thermostat
Very good except that while thermostat for my room heater has a fan switch auto & on, turning to on for background noise when sleeping was a bad idea. Found out it was pumping out heat when I woke up in the middle of the night sweating.
Other than that, it was a good stay & plan to return - will just double check heater next time!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Artist I Am Not Friendly staff, conveniently located close to downtown Worthington
The room and linens were spotless.
Our staff was prompt with their service, and very friendly.
Hotel is in a great location close to downtown, and right next to a plaza with shops and a great little place called Pies and Pints.
For an overnight stay near Polaris Place, it was just about perfect. Plenty of parking, even if the spots are a little tight.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Volleyballcoach Disappointed, again.
I've been a rewards member for a few years, and I am slowly getting more frustrated with the experiences I've been having recently with the HI brand.The previous weekend I had a disappointing stay at an HI in Maumee, OH. followed by a refreshing stay at a competitor in Dayton the next night. This particular weekend started at another competitor in Bowling Green Friday night, followed by a Saturday night stay at this location. During my pre-stay reservation, the sales associate took my request for a rollaway bed for small kids, but the desk attendant was less than helpful getting it acquired. Mind you, I had just spent the previous night at a competitor that was extremely accommodating under the same circumstances. So, after waiting 35 minutes in our room for a rollaway, at 10 pm I had to call the front desk to ask if they needed help moving the rollaway. If I hadn't of called, I'd never have gotten one. Furthermore, the bathroom outlet was inoperative, so no hair dryer; and the bathroom door is warped and does not latch. Learning from my previous weekend at an HI with an in-house restaurant, we did pack our own breakfast for the kids since the 'nominal fee' for a continental breakfast doesn't appeal to me when I received a complimentary breakfast the morning prior at a competitor which had an identical offering at a third of the room rate. The heater was silent, which was nice, and the beds were decent, but when you expect the refrigerator to be plugged in and operating, you get highly annoyed to wake up to warm milk. This is strike two.

We come down for business reasons often. Whenever Todd is at the Front Desk we are greated by name when we walk through the front door.
Check in and hospitality is wonderful and I would say above average. When we get there, it is like coming home for a visit and we so appreciate that.
Thanks for taking such great care of us!

This hotel is a little over rated (3.8). It is a older hotel that has been remodeled in the past few years. My room was next to an entrance and the cold air blew under my door which made my room cold even when I raised the thermostat to 79 degrees. I also had small fly's in my room.

It happened that our stay for a state High school bowling tournament coincided with a high school hockey tournament and a weekend antique show at the the hotel. Even with all of this, the help at the hotel was able to meet or exceed all of our requests no matter how difficult.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Chip the CPA Older hotel with updated rooms
While this appears to be an older hotel, that was not a purpose built Holiday Inn, the room I had has been remodeled and were clean.
Food service at this facility is fair at best. Both in quality and service. I had the opportunity to experience, both the on-site restaurant and banquet food provided to the conference I attended.

This is an older hotel, that has been upgraded frequently. We had a problem - I went into the bathroom and found my toothbrush infested with ants. As anyone who has ever been in the hotel trade knows - you NEVER get rid of all the ants! And they were ONLY in MY toothbrush. I took the infested toothbrush to the front desk. They were appropriately appalled. They gave me a replacement toothbrush - and coupons for the breakfast buffet for the rest of our stay. Good enough for me! The next day, when we returned after housekeeping had been in, there was a brand new, packaged, Colgate toothbrush. I thought that a nice gesture. And when we checked out - there were NO room charges - for any of the three days! Above and beyond the call of duty. I wold definitely return when my travels return me to Worthington Ohio.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fms2 Overall
The room was very nice and costs of the hotel were good. I did not enjoy the distance from my room to the lobby and restaurant area. I also felt the layout of the hotel made it difficult to navigate the grounds.
Lastly, the restaurant left something to be desired. I had the special of the evening , Chicken Fettuccine, and found it to be a less then memorable meal. The cost was reasonable but I would have gladly paid a little more for a better meal.

Your accommodations were very clean. The room was large and comfortable. Our complaints are with the restaurant service. Mostly the food was good, but there was definitely not enough staff to accommodate the number of guests. Even when we turned our order in early and were promised it would be ready be 5PM we waited until 5:35 to get our food and then it was cold. .
The lunch served the next day was delicious, but once again the servers were not sufficient to keep the food filled.
