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.

Bathroom
By Bob USMC Ret'd
This facility has a shelf inside the shower/tub area, I repeat, inside the shower/tub area to store clean towels. This is the most ridiculous setup imaginable. The first person to show generates [More] steam/humidity so the entire stack of bath towels and face towels become wet. The person that thought up this storage area obviously has never stayed in the facilities rooms. Above the commode is a large open space on the wall, this is the exact spot that towel shelf should be installed. Keeping all the clean towels out of steam/humidity in shower area. Where the current towel rack is now they should put towel racks. HIE in all locations do not have enough towel racks, even for a single occupant. [Less]

Exceptional staff
By tlk369
This is a nice property - very clean, comfortable, and secure. What separates this hotel from others is the exceptional staff. Both front desk and service staff were professional, accommodating and [More] friendly - the true definition of "hospitality!" [Less]
Sunbury HIE
By Luke12748
Everything was fine except at breakfast I was disappointed to see biscuits but no sausage gravy for them. What's up with that? This is the second time I've had this experience at a HIE. [Less]

Pleasant hotel with friendly staff
By LuxInTenebris
The location of this hotel is fantastic. Easy to see from the highway, so even at night there's no way you could miss it. And it's proximity to Columbus is obviously a plus. And you have to love a [More] hotel that has a Starbucks so close that it's practically in their parking lot. The lobby is welcoming and the man at the front desk that night (Larry, I think his name was) was really nice - even when I needed something late at night. My only suggestion would be to get those lamps that have power outlets (& USB ports) in them. I like to use my cell phone as my alarm clock, but there wasn't a power outlet close enough to the bed to plug it in unless I wanted to do without light. Otherwise, I had a really great stay. [Less]

Absolutely Amazing
By LandingEagle
Candlewood Suites Columbus Airport was absolutely amazing in every way possible. The service was second to none and I will be sure to return! [Less]
Nice hotel, good people
By Pianoman1964
My lovely bride and I stayed in the Columbus East Airport Candlewood for seven weeks. Great staff, nice hotel, and priced right for the quality. Five stars on everything except for: 1. Coffee [More] machine. (they bought a new one as we were leaving because the coffee machine company didn't give Candlewood quality service) 2. Consistency in cleaning. Different housekeepers cleaned the room differently. Read that--not as thoroughly. A brand is consistency in delivery to the customer, and housekeeping must be the same quality, done the same way, no matter who is performing the task, or the brand is not upheld. Really, a delightful stay overall. The housekeeping comment is a suggestion to help the fine team at this hotel, not a criticism. [Less]
