Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Great Place, but to many hyper kids running
Even though this is one of my favorite IHG Hotels this stay was unusual loud, due of hyper kids running up and down the floor and as a business traveler I like to have some relaxed / quiet time,, but as a father I certainly understand the kids exitment as this property has a unique and exiting pool area for children etc.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JJ83 Great location/Friendly Staff
Overall, the hotel was great! Friendly staff, great breakfast (expecially the singature cinnamon rolls!), and clean rooms.
Only place for improvement would be a more comfortable mattresses. I've stayed at other HIExpress' with more comfortable beds.

Outstanding staff interactions. Room clean. Might have been able to use a second chair (only chair was the office-type chair at desk) Did not expect the array of ladybugs in the room, ours and our friends had many (15+)

Hi...we want to give a big shout out to Alex. He took immediate care of all our needs. A super nice guy. And our room was spotless thanks to Rosa. What a hard worker! Also a tiny problem was fixed with the help of a cheerful maintance man. Sorry forgot his name. We look forward to staying there again! God bless

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tolguy32 Definitely changed my opinion
I stayed at this location for a conference the next day that was just down the street. I chose the hotel based off its close location to the conference site and also the price. This hotel was amazing. The lobby was fresh and modern and looked like something you would see in a high end hotel. The rooms were big enough for two queen beds and allowed people to still move about and have enough room without tripping over each other. I will definitely be staying there any time I need to stay in the Columbus area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ALtravel Comfortable and fun pool area for kids
I travel often for work, and normally stay at one of the IHG hotels when possible. This is a nice hotel. The pool area is great for young kids. The workout room is nice, for those who want to get a small sweat in.
The rooms are comfortable. After booking last minute, we were put in a wheelchair accessible room. I asked to be moved the next night as I really didn't want to take of a handicapped room, and would feel more comfortable in a traditional style room. We were moved to a double queen room. They really helped accommodate us.
In terms of extras in the room and the breakfast selection, it was a bit more disappointing than other Holiday Inn Express hotels I normally stay at. Other locations have extras in the room like the shoe shine, makeup remover wipes, shower gel, toothpaste, etc. My bathroom was stocked with a bar of soap, shampoo and conditioner and that's all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rosered1 Perfect business choice
WIthin 10-15 min of every major conference site in the Columbus area, but less expensive than conference rates and MUCH quieter, clean and friendly. Staff is always welcoming and helpful. Acess to I71 and 270 is quick and easy. Variety of dining /shopping options including grocery stores nearby in the Polaris Mall area. For restful business travel- this is the location to book mark for Columbus!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sebastian46 Excellent all around, but a noisy pool area.
We really enjoyed everything about this hotel, staff, cleanliness, location, etc. The only drawback for us was the noisy pool area. We like to relax at the end of the day and sit in the Jacuzzi, but it must have been 90 decibels in there with splashing water and kids screaming. It seems that the last hour of the night could be adults only. Other than that, the place was extremely nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike1osu This is the place to stay!
My family and I stayed in this hotel for two nights to attend my graduation from nursing school. Being a hotel Sales Manager in the past, I was highly impressed with this establishment. It has a very tasteful, contemporary décor and was extremely clean. The hotel staff from the front desk clerk to housekeeping were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The breakfast had a variety to choose from, and was kept well stocked. However, my children would tell you that the best part of the hotel is the pool. I must agree, it was amazing! In fact, the best hotel pool I have ever seen. I would have to say that this was probably the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Kudos to whoever is managing this facility and the staff. You are doing a very good job!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joann1950 We love this place!
We are frequent guests at this hotel and we have never had a bad experience. It is conveniently located, my grandchildren love the pool, and the staff is professional and friendly. I can't say enough about the ladies who work the breakfast shift. Breakfast is really a busy time on weekends and they are always so pleasant and friendly. They seem to enjoy their job, and as guests we really appreciate their hard work. They always give us a great start to our day!

When we checked in we were told our room was being cleaned. We ended up sitting and waiting for an hour after our room was promised. The manager was rude and condescending.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jvacation Very noisy!!
Over all experience was just ok.. Not sure if we would be back. The night check in lady was very nice and helpful when we checked in. However the room was very very noisy. We wanted to get away for a relaxing weekend and had to listen to the door for the ice machine room constantly slam shut. We stayed two nights the 2nd night we had to listen to constant thumping for almost 2 hours late at night. I called down to the front desk sound 10pm to report the gentalman said he would come investigate. He called back and said someone was drying there shoes... They didn't ask them to stop the dryer didn't apologize or anythjng... Had to listen to the thumping for the next few hours... In my opinion very rude this late in the evening to let that happen. Not sure how they expect guest to rest. Beds were a little hard. We did like the modern look and decor. If you decide to stay make sure you are away from the ice machine and laundry room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WorldTraveler5720 We love this hotel
This is the third time we've stayed at this hotel and each time we've been completely satisfied with our stay. The rooms have always been immaculate, the staff friendly, the amenities generous and the hallways quiet. I would say that the breakfast could be better, but when it's free, who can complain about that. I would refer a friend to this location and we will definitely choose to stay here again if we have the chance.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GumbyD Comfortable bed, but the bed next to the bathroom wall was difficult to get out of due to being to close to the wall. Staff was cordial, Ants in rm.
Our stay was nice with a few exceptions. One bed to close to a wall, carpeting looked pretty dingy, some ants at base of dresser by the refrig. and AC/Heating Unit was loud and with its intermittent cycling made it a bit difficult to get a sound sleep. Lastly, as for your breakfast bar, if it's feasible, you may want to add scrambled eggs vs the Western Omelette selection, offer a waffle selection(Waffle Iron for waffles) and possibly bacon as another meat item.

We were in Columbus for 2 days and this property was perfect for our family of four. My kids are 6 and 2 and both kids enjoyed the pool/splash zone. The rooms were very clean and the hotel staff was very friendly and eager to help when needed. The hotel is located in a great area with many things to do close by. We will be back to this hotel on our next trip to Columbus.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gricce Great value!
New hotel, very clean. Great price! Contemporary look. We stayed in a standard room and were surprised at the extra large space compared to other hotels! Comfort down one mark b/c I didn't feel the beds were the best however I am 8 months pregnant so not sure anything is comfortable at this point. Only downside was that we were first room near the elevator so we heard the elevator and ice machine constantly. But that can happen at any hotel! Would definitely stay again with my young family.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by oldwahine Smoke smell in non-smoking room
When we entered our room they had a fresh-air machine going trying to get the smell of smoke out of the bedroom. We asked to be moved and then they moved us to a much smaller room instead of an upgrade. We then asked to be moved again and they moved us back to the size of the room we had in the first place. So three moves before we were able to get settled. Not a fun experience.
