Featured Columbus Hotels

Make yourself at home in our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Columbus, Ohio. You'll soon be walking the marbled halls of the Statehouse and cheering on the Buckeyes in an Arena District sports bar.

Our hotels in Columbus are a short drive from the Ohio Statehouse, a stunning example of 19th-century Greek Revival architecture. Its towering colonnades and expansive skylights welcome you to one of the oldest working state capitols in the nation. Take an early-morning stroll around the Statehouse-it opens at 7am during the week-and then linger for the free 45-minute guided tours. North of downtown, the Ohio State University campus is popular with Buckeye sports fans and home of the Jack Nicklaus Museum, a favorite of golfers of all handicaps.

From our Columbus hotels, guests are just a short drive from the best of the city's dining and entertainment destinations. You can browse the dozen art galleries displaying pottery and paintings by local Ohio artists along North High Street in the Short North Arts District. The downtown Arena District draws sports fans and concertgoers to the Columbus Nationwide Arena. Neighboring sports bars and casual restaurants welcome revelers after each event. In German Village, you can top off a good Bavarian meal of knockwurst and cabbage with a slice of dark German chocolate cake. A refreshing microbrewed nightcap is steps away in the nearby Brewery District and close to our hotels in Columbus.

Book our Holiday Inn Express® Columbus hotels to discover more of this Midwest city's warm hospitality. If you're in town for "Football Saturday" in the autumn, savor the tailgate parties that warm up outside Ohio Stadium before every Buckeye home game. You may even sample a grilled sausage or two before you head for the stadium.

My hotel of choice
By WilltotheT
This hotel has what I expect from a Holiday Inn express and I will continue staying there and recommend it to anyone. There is a high level of cleanliness as far as I can see and the staff is [More] pleasant and helpful. Bob Evans within walking distance is a plus for me. [Less]

comfortable and relaxing stay
By Carsen
We recently came to Columbus for a short visit with our son, an OSU student and booked one night at this hotel. It was far enough away from the city for us to feel comfortable with our surroundings. [More] The hotel staff was friendly and the building well-maintained. Breakfast was very good, and the pool area was clean and well-supplied with towels. [Less]

No gluten free breakfast here
By sports family
We enjoy staying at holiday inn express'. Unfortunately, when we travel with the dogs they are not always welcome. We were happy to see they were welcomed here. I eat gluten free and have appreciated [More] the gluten free breakfasts , even before the commercials advertised it. Unfortunately, at this location this was not the case. The gal working did double check to see if there might be something for me-not this time! Appreciated being acknowledged as a ihg member. I forgot my pillow there and after a full day's drive home forgot to call. Maybe it's not too late. The room was comfortable. Would have liked one more blanket, but by the time I realized it I didn't want to call for one as it was too late. [Less]

Okay Stay
By Black Dynamite
We had a solid stay at the hotel. Room was clean and there were not issues. Breakfast was ready early enough to enjoy. The only knock was the pool was supposed to be closed to visitors (per the [More] manager), but when we walked by there was a family using the facilities. [Less]
