Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great staff Convenient location , next to Convention Center,Arena District, Short North Friendly , attentive staff, easy in and out would stay here again August 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel Very convenient to everything downtown. Enjoyed our stay and the front desk did everything to make our trip and time in Columbus enjoyable. August 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay I really enjoy staying at this hotel - It is clean and the staff is very helpful. The restaurant " Max and Erma's" next to the hotel needs better managment and the hotel should use another venue for meals than Max and Erma's. The Hotel ramped up their staff for the conferenc but the restaurant did not. August 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Always Courteous, Always Clean, Always Quiet Thanks for the Consistency I have stayed multiple times and found great service every time August 2, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by "Whose Shoes Are These?" When we first got there, didn't realize it was an additional $23.00 a night to park in the Crowne Plaza garage, which is ridiculous because that should be included in any hotel with a reservation. Build it into the cost of the room and don't advertise a charge. Also, the room was extremely dusty on the wood furniture, and our room didn't get maid service until after 3pm the second day of our stay, so we left that morning having put aside everything out of the way for the maid to have room to make the beds, bring new towels, take the old towels, take trash, etc.. When we arrived back at 2pm, everything was exactly as we had left it, so the beds didn't even get made because we were on them resting and the maid didn't have any new towels until hours later. Beyond all that in the room, my 7-year old son is on the floor at the foot of the bed and pulls out a pair of women's shoes and says, "Whose Shoes Are These?". Needless to say, they were definitely NOT ours and this was just super disgusting that our son was holding them. Also, the road construction outside made it super hard to navigate to the hotel. We will not be returning to this location in the future! August 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Stay Would stay again. Nice location to walk to the riverfront July 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Service makes the difference!! Our stay in Columbus was great - we love being across from the convention center and so close to Nationwide Arena. Rooms are clean and fresh - service from each person we met in hotel was superb! Love having room service from Max July 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Wedding After Party and Accommodations! We absolutely loved staying at Crowne and could not thank them more for their hospitality and service for our big July 5, 2014 after wedding party. While our reception was not there, it may have well been after 11 pm in the hotel bar! The staff was extraordinary and even put up with a lot of "shenanigans", all with smiles on their faces. The rooms were great as well and everyone had an amazing time! As a bride that got ready in one of the suites, everything was perfect. Our pictures, the space, the beds, and bar/kitchen area with conference table were incredible! Thank you so much Crowne Plaza :) July 29, 2014
