Great hotel, close proximity to places to eat and the office. Would have liked to have larger bath towels but otherwise all was good. Would stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ed15902 Another Excellent Experience
Although I haven't actually counted, this must have been at least our tenth stay at this hotel. My wife and I have to travel to the Columbus area approximately once a month to see a medical specialist and had stayed at a few hotels in the area before settling on this one as our preferred location.
That is mainly thanks to an attentive and courteous staff and clean, comfortable accommodations. Great shower, too!
Breakfast is good, with better than average choices for a complimentary buffet. Internet is faster than at many other hotels we've stayed in. The management and staff deserve to be recognized for their superior attitudes and service.
Overall, I would highly recommend this property.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MacCartney uncomfortable bed and not a good breakfast variety or quality
The site of the hotel was safe and clean and the room was very attractive. The coffee was empty the 3 times I went after some in the dining area. I was disappointed for the high price of the room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amy21 Wow...This is a Holiday Inn?
This is a fantastic hotel with a super low price point. The hotel is immaculate, new and modern. They have a water park the kids spent HOURS in and loved every minute. The breakfast was top quality. I'm not really sure how they make any money with all the perks. Our family of five stayed in a 1 bedroom suite (we had one in a crib and I only saw this room when I did a search for 4). This room could have fit another 10 people probably, it was gigantic. Would have been nice to have a second bathroom with all the space but otherwise I wouldn't change anything. They had big new flat screen TVs, charging stations, blackout shades, and our room had a kitchen etc. The staff here is super nice, always on hand and knees scrubbing the floors clean enough to eat off of.
Amazing deal- I highly recommend this hotel, no problems at all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great relief from busy week.
Generally stay at HIE, but never at this location. When a discount popped into my account, I gladly took it. I will definitely stay here more often. The location is convenient to family and entertainment. The hotel is incredibly quiet, the rooms kept at their very best.
Was a little disappointed to find a lovely walk-in "spa" shower with a poorly designed showerhead and no water pressure. I really was looking forward to those showers, but they didn't make my day.
And HIE breakfast is still pretty much the same-old same-old. Happy to see protein, but a change-up with more fresh items once in a while would be nice.
Thanks for a wonderful relaxing stay!!

This hotel is one of the best Holiday Inn Express hotels I've ever been too. The room and the hotel were in pristine condition. It was the most comfortable stay I've had in a hotel in a while.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by lfive hotel review
The actual hotel was very nice. It was decorated modernly and clean. The main issue we had was at 5:30 a.m. the room above us was extremely loud! Banging over and over again. We were never able to go back to sleep. I mentioned it to the front desk and they did nothing except say I am sorry to hear that. I was disappointed in the customer service. We stay in several hotels and have never complained but it was very bothersome and we did not have a relaxing stay unfortunately.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pairoftravelers Very good hotel for the money.
We stayed at a number of Holiday Inn Express hotels on our week long trip and this was the best! It was also the busiest but they didn't run out of food at the breakfast. They just kept restocking. We got the executive King room. Loved the large shower with the glass door! The firm mattress was comfortable too.

We had a great time on our recent stay at the Holiday Inn. There was not one thing we were dissatisfied with. All the employees treated us with the utmost respect and were very friendly. The hotel was exceptionally clean. And the pool/waterpark was an awesome place for the kids to have fun. We will definitely stay here again!

I took my kids for a quick getaway and picked this hotel because of the pool. The staff was very friendly and professional from the front desk to housekeeping. The decor was modern and updated. The room was clean. The only thing I can say negative is that the wastebasket was small and was only in the bathroom. Great place highly recommended!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trish3088 Great place for business travelers to stay!
I had to be in Columbus for business for 7 weeks, I spent my duration at the Holiday Inn Express in Polaris, the staff were excellent, know the customer by name, and just taking that minute to say welcome back means alot. I would recommend this location to anyone!

Have stayed at this location a number of times over the past few years. Always pleasant and relaxing, even when athletic events or spring break times when a lot of families are present. Would suggest more staff in breakfast area during spring break.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by C_Olds What I expected and more.
My room was equipped as advertised and very well maintained. The breakfast bar was very good, will satisfy most early risers. Checking in and out was hassle free and quick.
Also, the hotel is easy to get to and close to a wide variety of areas to shop and eat. You will not be dissappointed.
I recommend Holiday Inn Express, Polaris Parkway, Columbus, Ohio to anyone staying in this area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TexasAl59 Great staff very customer centric
Our stay was very pleasant. Like the service provided in this Hotel. The staff was very attentive to us. The room and the amenities were great. The only thing we had some minor difficulties with was controlling the temperature in the room. However, we think it was the changes in the weather that weekend. The weather range was from 60 to 21 degrees during the day. Breakfast was better than other hotels I have been in at this price range. If you have kids the pool area was impressive. The kid would love it. Great exercise room too!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Katie54 Wonderful gathering place
Our family of 17 adults and 7 children picked your hotel as a place to meet halfway for my parent's 60th anniversary. The location, fun pool area for the kids, and service and comfort was everything we had hoped for. The front desk staff was very helpful and professional in answering our questions. The girls in the breakfast area kept the food replenished and tables clean even though there was a line of people out the door on Sunday morning. We were worried that the pool area might be too cold for the young children, but it was very comfortable. We will definitely pick your hotel again as a gathering place for all of us to meet. Thank you!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by amyhew2 Overall good time
Our visit started out great with the wonderful gentleman at the front desk...he was polite and courteous and had a sense of humor. The lobby area...along with the rest of the common area....was beautiful...clean and inviting. Our room was beautiful and comfortable and allowed us to relax for the time we were there. We visited the pool for a couple of hours and adults and kids alike enjoyed it. Very kid friendly. The only trouble we had was the guests in the room next to ours we very loud all night long but that is nothing the hotel could help. I give Holiday Inn Express ☆☆☆☆☆

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joann1950 Always our first choice!
We stay at this property quite often (at least once a month) and I cannot say enough about the friendliness of the front desk, housekeeping, and breakfast staff. This time I would like to give special kudos to the lifeguard. This young man does a great job and is so good with the kids. Our stays are always on weekends which can get pretty crazy around the pool. He is extremely patient and does a great job focussing on the safety of the children. We even chose it for a family gathering the weekend after Christmas. There were 30 of us (including 15 children ages 1-18 )and everyone had a wonderful experience. This hotel is always our first choice when visiting the Columbus area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GmaMel Great indoor pool was waaaaay too cold
This is a nice enough motel with a very nice indoor pool. I took my grandkids there so that they could enjoy some swimming but the pool and the room were MISERABLY cold. My 2 year old grandson's lips were literally blue and he was shaking when got him out. What's the point in having this amenity if it can't be enjoyed.
Additionally, the hotel was extremely noisy. I guess there is poor soundproofing or too many loud guests. Either way, it was less enjoyable than previous stays.
