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.

Amazing hotel, but avoid the bar
By Mike927
Great location!! Very close to all that downtown Columbus has to offer! Great spot to stay if you go to a Blue Jackets game or any other event at Nationwide Arena. The front desk staff, valet parking [More] staff, & housekeeping staff were all incredibly gracious, helpful, & friendly. My only negative experience was at the hotel bar, where I found grouchy & dishonest bartenders. They were rude & outright lied to me that they were no longer serving food at midnight, then proceeded to allow "regulars" to order 40+ minutes later. This bar is obviously meant for Columbus locals and not hotel guests, so avoid it at all costs. There are plenty of other bar/restaurant options very close to the hotel, if you stay here. However, aside from that, great place! The rest of my experience was top notch. [Less]
