Your breakfast staff (Mylene & Alisha) do an excellent job of keeping all areas clean and well stocked. They go one step further in that they remember the guests names from day to day and even week to week. Both these ladies are to be comended on the job they do.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by alfadriver A nice place to stay
I have stayed here several times, and have always had a great experience. Most recently, my arrival was very late in the evening, and I was greated by a very friendly and efficient desk clerk, Jimmy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Momw Great service in person, not so much on the phone
My husband and I have stayed at this hotel many times and have always been happy with the service and comfort we've received. This time, however, I had some questions when making my reservation and I called the front desk. The girl who answered my call was unable to answer a Priority Rewards question and made me feel pressured to reserve a room because, "There was only one room left". She suggested that I talk to a manager the next day so I called again. This time I left a message with the manager and never received a call back. This was an unusual situation because normally the service is above and beyond. I do hope this is a one time anomaly because we normally enjoy staying at this property. I must say that the girl at the front desk, when we checked in, was fantastic. She answered my questions, gave me a reasonable rate and upgraded my room without any problems. She was great!

The hotel is modern and pretty. The pool is pretty good. Great jacuzzi.
Staff service was very disappointing though. They looked like they were trying to put as many obstacles as possible in my enjoying my stay. Every time I asked for something it was no, no.
I really hope you can do something about this!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by marie12345 We had a bad time
Our room was next to the elevator machine room so we heard many noises as the elevators were being used. There were too many people in the hotel and our floor was filled with parents with children who were uncontrolled and ran around yelling even after 11 p.m. The front desk said they would only be able to get up to our floor to see into the situation at least 10 minutes later. The breakfast place was filled up with kids from some day camp or trip who were not being appropriately managed. The coffee was too cold. The pancake machine was not working properly. The orange juice felt as if it was diluted from powder. Overall, we had a bad experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TMDjune2004 great location & comfortable room
Was concerned upon check-in due to the hotel being full from a youth hockey tournament. Found that it was exceptionally quiet in our room! Appreciated the attention to a request for an upper floor and a room away from the elevator.
As a platinum PC member, thought there would be a welcome package like in so many other locations. There should have been a refrigerator in our room but the slot was empty. Nevertheless, the breakfast staff was kind and the room was very comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by boblo New, clean, big rooms
This was my first stay at this particular hotel. I attempted to stay last summer, but they were booked. I ended up at a nearby Holiday Inn which ended up being a disaster.
This Holiday Inn EXPRESS was night and day different. Large, spacious rooms. Beautiful decor. And a very reasonable price. Great resturaunts very close. And the staff was super friendly. The manager even had a taco party the night I was there-very cool. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and have added this location to my favorites.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SEKIllinois Strange decor very offputting
The basics were met at this HIE. Front desk staff was very nice. However the entire hotel is decorated very modern in all gray, black and purple, including the rooms. Not a very relaxing. It looked like a cheap attempt at Euro design that failed. The breakfast room was really bad. Instead of the traditonal tables for two or four, there was one huge bar height common table that seated about ten with power outlets at each seat. I guess they planned on a bunch of business people who must eat and work on their laptops all at one time within an 18 inch space. I I were here for business this would not have been a selling point. Then there was the whiteboard at the entrance to the breakfast room with the disclaimer that all patrons must have shirts and shoes. What kind of clientele do they anticipate? We opted to eat elsewhere.
Since this establishment is across from Polaris it will always be busy regardless, but I do wish they would do something about the look and feel of the place.
P.S. No Priority Club recognition.

Nice suite. Friendly staff. Would absolutely stay again. My only suggestion is that they monitor the cleanliness of the pool area more closely.

I am in the Columbus area on business several times a year. It's always a pleasure to stay at this particular Holiday Inn Express. The staff has always been helpful and gregarious, the rooms are immaculate and the overall property is well maintained and managed.

First time we stayed at this hotel. Overall experience - EXCELLENT!! The only negative would be that doors to the rooms are heavy and are quite loud when they close unless held. The Staff absolutely goes out of their way to provide outstanding customer service. Considering all, will definitely stay there in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LeeAnnD Our Family Christmas
Due to some relocation of family members we decided to have our family christmas in Columbus and chose to stay at this hotel for many reasons: the pool was kid friendly and was a lot of fun for everyone. It created a great atmosphere for the grandparents to spend time with their grand children.
The hotel was very accomidating. They gave us a free upgrade to a larger room since they knew that we were having a family event. We had our family gift exchange in the breakfast area which was very spacious and nice. It made it very easy for us to spend some time talking and playing with the kids. We made sure that were cleaned up after oursevles so we didn't put the hotel out.
We really felt that the hotel went out of their way to make our family get togother memorable and enjoyable.
We will definitely stay there again.

I normally stay at an IHG hotel, and this was by far the best experience at a Holiday Inn Express I've had in a while. Knowledgeable staff, close to everything I needed, and really clean rooms. If I'm back in the Columbus area, I'll definitely stay here again.

We come down to Columbus for holiday shopping each year. This hotel is just across from Polaris, and a short drive to Easton. Lots of restaurants, too. The hotel is new, and very modern. Large screen TV, great workout room, great breakfast options. If you are a Priority Club member, there are extra perks at check-in. We will be back next year.

The Polaris Holiday Inn Express is my home away from home!
Alex, Peni and staff do a GREAT job taking care of the guests and always go above and beyond to satisfy our requests. They are quick to act when needed and always pleasant. The entire team shows fantastic customer service skills also.
I recomend them to all my friends and co-workers, etc.
I can't speak highly enough about this great team and wonderful hotel. Rooms are always clean as is the rest of the hotel.
Breakfast Keep up the fine work!

Great place. Much nicer than the full service Holiday Inn I was scheduled to be at in Worthington. This place tops them all. The new venue offers a classy, stylish look, modern rooms. Love the new showers and sink. This was a refreshing visit and I will be back for sure.

We were very impressed with the overall experience from staying at the hotel. We checked in late but the front desk clerk assisted in getting us a couple extra blankets. Room was quite nice for the price and breakfast had several selections to choose from. Will definently stay here again if back in the area.

The Holiday Inn Polaris is the ONLY hotel I will stay at in the Columbus area. The staff is incredible and always goes out of their way to please. The entire hotel is clean and neat and I have never heard a negative comment from anyone staying there. Rooms are comfortable and not outdated like many other hotels I have stayed at. I always look forward to my stay!
I will continue to book my nights there and recomend them to anyone staying in the area! What a great team they have!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lovely277 Great Hotel, but horrible view
Great, clean room and wonderful staff; however, the view from our room was HORRIBLE. The entire view was of the side of an air conditioning unit (had a picture, but it doesn't meet the upload size requirements of 533 pixels tall). The hotel was sold out for the night, so I didn't even bother asking for another room. Luckily we were only there for one night. The breakfast and amenties were great....would definitely recommend, just don't stay in room 304.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BA5525 Excellent pool area, still looks new, perfect location.
We had a wonderful and too short experience with this hotel. The service was so friendly, accommodating, and courteous. The pool area had 2 lap lanes with the rest of the pool to the side, L shaped. Nice waterslide too! Perfect for families. Breakfast was good. Hotel location was excellent near highways and a huge mall. Our room was immaculate and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again!
