Guest Reviews

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 262 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by service we have stayed at this location a number of visits to the area. Each time we are pleased with the friendliness of staff, the clean and comfortable facilities. Usually arriving here after a lengthy drive- it is nice to have a restaurant and lounge available so it is not necessary to leave the hotel the same day. November 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice place to stay Clean comfortable room. The only downfall (if any) of the hotel is the location. While it is very conveniently located close to I-71, you will need to drive a few miles to find a decent restaurant selection. November 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sunday Stay We had a great visit at this hotel, everything that we could have wanted was available. October 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Crown Plaza Love this hotel. I highly recommend. Great location, nice rooms, great staff. Shuttle service is awesome. Onsite restaurant is great October 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The place to stay during AQHA Congress Perfect and priced right for the time I stayed during Congress. Hotel staff were always cheerful and accommodating. Room was clean and comfortable. I don't usually have breakfast, but there is a buffet if you do. The one recommendation I would make is I wish they had a complimentary coffee area in the lobby, to grab and go. October 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel Clean rooms, great service, great food and reasonable prices. October 29, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible experience Room was dirty. There were dishes outside our room from previous guests and were still there when we checked out of our room. Internet never worked had to go outside of hotel to use. Wallpaper was coming off the wall. bed had dirt inside the bed between the sheets. Dropped an earring on carpet went under bed that was discussing never vacuumed. The soap dish had dried soap all over the dish. This was not a three star hotel. I could go on more but no point of continuing October 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Awsome Food and service was the best The room was clean and comfortable The staff was kind and very professional October 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice clean room with an extremely comfortable bed. I had a wonderful experience at the Columbus North Clowne Plaza. October 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place for a conference This is the 10th year I have stayed here and the service is excellent! The conference rooms are nice and the banquet areas are large and have plenty of room to move around. The food is always great every year. The room was clean and comfy. The only down side in the room I stayed in this time was the noise from the highway I-71 is right next to the hotel. Over all a great place!! October 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean Rooms and Great service From the time I walk in the staff was very helpful and nice when I made it to my room it was clean and comfortable, also it was nice to stay in hotel that the hot water is really hot October 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice stay Stayed here for a weekend of youth soccer games. all amenities were great. would like to see the breakfast to be free like other high end hotels or else lower the price. other than that the stay was fantastic October 22, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Uncomfortable bedding Needs to attention. Bedding needs updating. The mattresses are warped and sagging. The fixtures are moldy. Certainly not worth the money. October 20, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by We would recommend it! We were exhausted after driving 8 hrs and the staff was so cordial and accommodating when we got there. We were also hungry and the dining room was closed. We stopped at the bar to see if we could get anything to eat and were pleasantly surprised to have a wide variety to choose from.....The bartender was very pleasant, professional and we chatted with him while we waited for lunch. Lunch was delicious and much more than we anticipated. The gal at the front desk even allowed us to ck in early which was really appreciated. Pretty hotel and nice facilities. We'd stay there again. October 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good stay Very comfortable hotel that gives you a sense of confort and security. I have stayed here before and always experience a helpful, professiona staff. October 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great room The room was large with a large desk, couch, and dresser. Excellent internet connection. Very clean and well appointed. Good restaurant. October 15, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Place The housekeeping was excellent and the room was clean and generally comfortable. Common areas are modern and well-maintained. Front desk staff is friendly and professional. At least a small refrigerator in the room would have been nice. Most chain properties offer this amenity, but this one did not. Requiring guests to live out of their own coolers is a bit archaic. October 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worthington Columbus Stay This is always a wonderful place to stay for me! I stay here often and cannot wait to end my business day and retreat to my room relax, use the fitness center...love the precors....and visit the concierge room....sometimes dinner in the hotel restaraunt or a quock bar visit and climb into bed for a great nights sleep!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable and easy to access Stayed here for business travel - worked out great for client meetings in the immediate area. October 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service both in my room and during our conference. The person cleaning my room did an excellent job. The food provided for the OAM conference was wonderful! I thorougly enjoyed my stay and would choose this hotel whenever I'm in Columbus. October 8, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and nice pool area I have stayed at this hotel for a specific conference 3 different times over several years. For this stay, the room had been updated and the beds were so comfortable. There is a bar and restaurant and the quality of the breakfast buffet is very good. The coffee is really good, too. The pool area is very nice and large (indoor-outdoor swim-through pool with a courtyard around the outdoor section) but the women's room off the pool area really needs to be addressed as it looks dirty though things might just be stained. It's not a large area so the hotel really should fix it up asap. The workout room was a good size with a lot of equipment. Most hotels at this price point provide a minifridge in the room as a standard feature but this hotel does not. The flat screen tv was great...very sharp picture. I liked the location because it was north of Columbus, not downtown. Overall, not as slick as other Crown Plaza hotels I have been to, but a good hotel. October 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Stay! I've stayed in hundreds of hotels across the nation. This location was one of the best! October 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Conference Trip I stayed at the Hotel for 3 nights. I enjoyed my stay and would stay there again. October 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay's every time I never have a problem when I stay here. The staff is always friendly and the rooms are perfect. And the recognition for priority club members is second to none. October 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel They did a wonderful job on our annual conference!! I would recommend them to anyone! October 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FRIENDLY STAFF FRIENDLY STAFF, CLEAN AND NEAT HOTEL. STAFF WAS KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT THE AREA WE STAYED IN AND VERY HELPFUL. FITNESS CENTER LOOKED UP-TO-DATE, ALONG WITH SWIMMING POOL AREA. MATTRESSES AND PILLOWS COULD HAVE BEEN MORE COMFORTABLE AND ROOMS NEED TO BE MORE SOUND PROOF. October 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 C Excellent accommodations. Friendly helpful staff. Streamlined registration and checkout. October 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice hotel Hotel is not easy to get to if not familiar with the area. My room was neat and clean, but had the smell of wet diapers, possibly from the carpet. The breakfast cook was wonderful; made to order eggs. October 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by crowne plaza worthington Oh Property is clean and bright, comfortable guest room. Large parking lot. Breakfast was good if you use the omlet station, the scrambled eggs were over done. No brown sugar or raisins for oatmeal. Also the 2nd morning, I was in a special area for a group in the restaurant and I was the first one there. I did not get offered coffee the whole time I was there and finally asked a server for a cup to go when I was leaving. September 30, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and great service. Our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. The staff was very nice and helpful and the whole place was very clean. September 30, 2014
