Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 232 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by loved my stay It was a beautiful hotel. Met all my expectations. Front desk staff was wonderful. Rooms were lovely. I'd say the hotel did a great job! September 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel Good location to many bars and eateries; room was clean; staff was nice. would stay again if I am in the area. No stores close to shop; like clothing etc/ September 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Location and staff Prime location but a little difficult to get to with the construction in front of the hotel. A heads-up about the access problems on the website or reservation confirmation would have been good. The interior layout is a little confusing-some bigger signs showing the location of the restaurant, business center, etc would have helped. All the staff were quick to provide directions, The room service and valet parking were particularly friendly and effecient-I'll be back September 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Columbus downtown very nice place to stay while in Columbus lots of places to eat plenty of good food ....a friendly staff nice clean place to stay like home away from home ...thank for making me feel at home September 21, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Central location It did the job, but felt hotel felt tired. Not quite up to what I expect of a Crowne Plaza hotel. Nice sized room, but no real milk for the coffee (just powered substitute) and no mini bar. September 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome It was our Anniversary weekend and decided to spend it in Columbus. We selected the Crown Plaza as our destination because of everything the Hotel offered and its location. The staff was incredible who went beyond meeting all our needs. The rooms were clean and dining there was awesome. I am going to recommend this Crown Plaza on facebook, and to my family and friends. Looking forward to returning. September 17, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to stay We went in town for a softball tournament and this location was close to the fields and was a great place to stay. It was comfortable, clean, and up to date. The staff was attentive and on their toes. September 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great property, 1 minor hiccup Though the sign isn't quite as visible from High St as I expected, it was easy in/out off Nationwide-check! Check-in was fast/easy and the room was in great shape with new accoutrements (linens, the little baubles and trinkets etc)-check! Carpets and cleanliness of property was great-check! Nice coffee shop-check with a bar in the lobby-check! Max & Ermas across the driveway was a nice brunch alternative-check. Staff? Very willing to help...even if they can't break a $5 bill into $1's. Only hiccup? Valet parking. I'd expect to wait a few minutes (2-4?) but 10? 15? Also, it wasn't clear how the valet service was to be done after hours (logically, drop off keys...but no signage to instruct us) September 10, 2014
