Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dk54321 Construction !!!! Stay away
I travel weekly for work and always stay at crowne plaza / holiday inn hotels. I used my rewards points for this visit and it ended up being the worst experience ever.
The hotel was very outdated and they were in the process of remodeling. I arrived around 3 for check in and once I walked in my room it was so loud. It sounded like people were in my room banging on walls.
I called the front desk they said they could move me but it wouldn't help and they would be done at 5pm. Well 8pm came and it was still awful.
Also the pricing was higher than holiday inns which makes sense because crowne plaza are always nicer. However this hotel was much worse than any holiday inns in Columbus so basically i spent more money and got less quality.
Don't stay here unless you call and say remodeling is totally complete. The website did not indicate any type of work at all so make sure to call or avoid this all together.

Jennifer, the guest services manager, went above and beyond to help us when another hotel fouled up our reservation. She was kind and courteous and did her best to help us enjoy our visit to Columbus. This hotel was more expensive than the Holiday Inn express that double-booked our room, and Jennifer graciously comped our breakfast buffet to help with the additional cost.

This hotel is very tired and it needs an update. I understand its getting one now, but for what we paid, it should have already been done. Otherwise, they should have offered a discount. Paint was falling off the ceiling in the bathroom, the rooms were dark and uninviting. The breakfast was quite drab. There were plenty of nicer hotels nearby. I'd give this place 6 months or so to finish its upgrading before considering going here.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by not coming back Disappointing
While I did not expect a 5 star hotel, did expect more from what tried to be a business hotel with its conference center. To start, both internet (have dealt with that before) but also phone were out. Had to use my cell phone to call for room service and when the food came was flavorless and lukewarm. Also no glass of ice for my soda and no signs to direct guests to the ice machine. When I had asked about wake up calls without a phone in the room, they indicated they would knock on the door (decided to pass on that). Morning room service was no better than dinner. Ordered the option that was supposed to contain mixed breads and pastries. Cold banana, zucchini bread, flavorless pastry, all of which seemed to come directly from the freezer. When I checked out, expected to be asked how everything was but I guess they had a suspicion and did not ask, I didn't tell them. Rooms and hallways needed a good cleaning and an update

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by APM13 Embarrassment to the Crowne Plaza name
I can not believe this is a Crowne Plaza. The property is old and outdated. I had a room in the quiet zone. I guess that means you are supposed to be quiet; because the rooms were not quiet. I could still hear every word spoken in the rooms next to me.
The rooms are small. The ceiling had water damage all over it. The bathroom was horrible, even the shampoo smelled bad.
I had 2 coworkers staying there also. 1 of my coworkers got vouchers for free breakfast with his room, but not the rest of us. As bad as the rest of the hotel was, I would not have wanted to try their food anyway.
This is one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed at.

The room needs to be updated. The carpet had large stains, there was a hole in the bathroom door. The shower was warm, ran for several minutes water never got hot. The restuarant or bar was not open, we planned to eat light meal before evening meeting. I received 15% off resturant but it was never opened during my stay.

Our second visit to this property was outstanding. My wife and I were greeted cordially by the staff and attended to with great courtesy. The guest services manager remembered me from our previous visit and greeted me by name. When my wife went to the lobby for a complimentary cup of coffee the dispenser was in need of refill, so a fresh cup was delivered to our room.
Although we didn't dine in the restaurant on this trip, we did during our previous stay. There are plenty of healthy items from which to choose. Our dinner was sumptuous! Breakfast on this trip was from their lavish buffet.
Our room was clean and comfortable and the shower was strong and relaxing. My wife and I had an entirely pleasant experience, thanks very much to the staff and their attention to detail. Checkout was friendly and expedient.
We recommend this location to anyone visiting the area.

Despite an unsatisfactory mattress on the bed, our stay at this hotel was very good. The food was enjoyable, the drinks were tasty, the service was exceptionally good.
The location worked very well for us. The work on the hotel upgrade was being handled in a way that was not at all disruptive or disturbing.
We look forward to returning next time we are in this area.

This was my first stay at this hotel and the location was great for my needs and the staff was excellent! I heard that a renovation is planned and that is a good thing. The rooms need to be updated and the bedding could be upgraded. I will make this my go-to hotel in Columbus once the renovation is complete.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LibbyW It was average!
We stayed on a Fri. & Sat. night just as a get a way to relax. For what I thought was an upscale hotel it lacked that feeling. Elevator was not working properly when we arrived, coffee maker in room worked first night then quit working on Sat. a.m. and the housekeeping dept. said they couldn't find another one for in the room (there were very few rooms in use-could have gotten one from another room???). We requested a room in the quiet zone (it would be nice if the doors in the quiet zone had the type of closures that didn't slam so you have to hope other guests hold their door as it closes) - wasn't very quiet as people came and went. Bed and room temperature was very comfortable. Swimming pool was not warm actually very chilly - the floor in the pool area was very dirty - when you walked across it with damp feet you picked up dust/dirt/hair on the bottom of your feet (someones fake fingernails were on the floor next to the lounge chair I sat in). Disappointed they didn't have a hot tub. The staff we interacted with were friendly and pleasant. We did not eat on site so cannot comment on. Might try it again in future if good enough deal.

The Lobby was Beautiful and the front desk, maintenance were Excellent! No complaints about any staff.
Even the lady at the restaurant was very nice and gave us a cup of coffee for Free!
We stayed at this property the weekend of December 20, 21, 22, and checked out on December 23, 2013.
All the staff, from the front desk to maintenance to the nice lady at the restaurant giving me a free cup of coffee, made this stay so enjoyable.
Previous posts have stated the rooms are small, and a little outdated; this is true, but it is still an excellent stay and well worth your money.
We stayed in room 109, the Internet IS slow, with connection issues, we did not call for technical support or anything. We just reconnected and continued.
IF you spend a lot of time in Columbus, it is a drive to and from Columbus, but if you do not mind the traveling like us, you will definitely want to stay here as the staff, comfort and all makes up for it.
Thank you all at Crowne Plaza – Dublin for a great stay! Please keep up the good work!

We have stayed in this hotel, several times in the past few years. We love the renovations and changes. Our last stay was very enjoyable. Great staff and a beautiful new lobby. As for the rooms. Very quiet, relaxing and restful. The beds are very comfortable and great pillows. The amenities are also very nice. Cozy restaurant and bar, two pools (one indoors one outdoor) and free Wi-Fi and others. To the staff and owners, Great Job! Thanks You...

We travel frequently, our requirements are a clean, comfortable room, with good beds, quiet atmosphere, and clean bathrooms with good hot water pressure.
The Crown Plaza delivered on all counts,. We were here last week, gone for a night and back for another week.
While the hotel is now brand new, all furnishings are very acceptable.

There is nothing I can say that is negative about my stay at this hotel. I return yearly and am constantly impressed by the quality of the room appointments and the food in the restaurant. Don't overlook the bar, especially if you like beer! Try the Columbus India Pale Ale. Very friendly staff no matter what your needs. Five stars?

There was no comfortable seating in the room.
Was told chairs had been removed due to deteriorated condition.
Where was the replacement?
The 2pm extended checkout arranged at the front desk was not honored. Went to room at noon and it was not available.

I have been coming to this trade show for the last ten yrs. & frequently attend others in different cities. I always enjoy the Crowne Plaza more than any of the other hotels. The rates are reasonable, with no hidden fees. The rooms are adequate-not many frills (fridge, microwave etc) , but comfortable beds, & usable space. Some of the furniture needs replacement, but it's useable. The rooms are quiet & very safe.
The bar is fun, with reasonable prices & good food. The restaurant is very good with an excellent breakfast buffet. I'm always amazed by the number of staff who have been there for years. They couldn't be more helpful. I'll be back

I just concluded my second stay at the Crowne Plaza Dublin. It won't be my last. In fact, you have become my hotel of choice in the greater Columbus area.
Accommodations and dining are quite good, and the staff is wonderfully friendly and attentive. They really make guests feel at home.
I also appreciate that you do not treat smokers like criminals. I was with a large group that probably included 25 smokers. Even those who choose not to smoke in their rooms appreciate the fact that you make that possible in select areas. Some hotels do not, and I refuse to patronize them.
Thank you, and keep up the good work.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sidney1 Hotel Very Dated
We were told we were going to get a room on the 1st floor but needed for the room to be cleaned first. 4 hours later they gave us a room on the 2nd floor.Told them we were unhappy and they said there was nothing they could do.. Stayed 2 nights. Lots of little things that should have been corrected. Elevator button light going up or down didn't light up. Did not replace box of tissues after 1st night. . Did not replace regular coffee after we made coffee the 1st day. Hallways walls needed painting - they were marked up along the wall from the carts..Hotel definitely needed some rehab.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed1977 Daytime Manager Issues
My stay at the Crowne Plaza Dublin was far from memorable; in fact I hope to soon forget it all together. From the outdated and well-worn rooms to a daytime manager (Mr. Fisher) who was unable to grasp the concept of state employees being “tax exempt” when on official business and taking three days to rectify the matter; my experience at your facility was disappointing and therefore I will try never to visit one again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Deuce1956 Outstanding front desk staff!
Location, room/bed comfort, water pressure and temperature in the shower, and an outstanding front desk staff are all reasons that I would return to this hotel in the future. The ONLY (albeit MINOR) complaints that I have is that I like to use the stairs and the stairwells could use a good bleach washing and the location of the stairs in relation to the exits to the parking lots seem misplaced. These complaints would in no way dissuade me from staying here again.

I liked the updated and new furniture in the lobbies! My phone did not work in my room and the maintenance came and tried 3 phones and none would work so he offered to knock on my door for wake up since I couldn't receive a wake up call.
My bathroom was not mopped while I was there as a piece of trash that had fallen on the floor was there my whole visit. I also thought I left something in the room and called back to leave a message for housekeeping , I asked for a phone call back as to whether they found it or not. As of today 3 1/2 days later no call.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by workout Damp room
My room was damp and musty. And it smeeled like wetness. I was on the first floor and when I asked to be moved the front desk clerk said they we sold out. I then saw another person check in. The rug was actually wet in the area between the door to the room and the bathroom. I thought it may be water from the shower but when I looked the bathroom floor was dry.
Even the air conditioner didn't take the dampnees out of the room. Not a pleasant experience this time at Crowne Plaza.
One more thing, When I went to plug in my computer to the outlet behind the night table there were cobwebs and dust back there the size of tissues. I then used the outlet on the lamp which did not work properly. I had to rig it so that my phone would charge overnight. The lamp looked to be 20 years old.
