Featured Columbus Hotels

Make yourself at home in our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Columbus, Ohio. You'll soon be walking the marbled halls of the Statehouse and cheering on the Buckeyes in an Arena District sports bar.

Our hotels in Columbus are a short drive from the Ohio Statehouse, a stunning example of 19th-century Greek Revival architecture. Its towering colonnades and expansive skylights welcome you to one of the oldest working state capitols in the nation. Take an early-morning stroll around the Statehouse-it opens at 7am during the week-and then linger for the free 45-minute guided tours. North of downtown, the Ohio State University campus is popular with Buckeye sports fans and home of the Jack Nicklaus Museum, a favorite of golfers of all handicaps.

From our Columbus hotels, guests are just a short drive from the best of the city's dining and entertainment destinations. You can browse the dozen art galleries displaying pottery and paintings by local Ohio artists along North High Street in the Short North Arts District. The downtown Arena District draws sports fans and concertgoers to the Columbus Nationwide Arena. Neighboring sports bars and casual restaurants welcome revelers after each event. In German Village, you can top off a good Bavarian meal of knockwurst and cabbage with a slice of dark German chocolate cake. A refreshing microbrewed nightcap is steps away in the nearby Brewery District and close to our hotels in Columbus.

Book our Holiday Inn Express® Columbus hotels to discover more of this Midwest city's warm hospitality. If you're in town for "Football Saturday" in the autumn, savor the tailgate parties that warm up outside Ohio Stadium before every Buckeye home game. You may even sample a grilled sausage or two before you head for the stadium.

Very nice stay
By Amy Gym Mom
Our stay was too short to use everything that was available in this room. Wish we were going to be there longer. The room was very spacious and the grounds were lovely. [Less]
Very convenient to Capital University and OSU
By MaHanasMom
Suite was very roomy, beds were comfortable, the room was nice and quiet, slept like a baby. Breakfast was excellent, only no plain oatmeal. The staff was friendly and helpful. I think the only way [More] to improve this Hotel would be the addition of a hot tub. Would definitely stay here again.. [Less]
staybridge stay comfortable but a bit noisy
By fancyfeet
the two bedroom suite was laid out well - especially for two families. A common area in the middle provides privacy for both bedrooms. Pillows were lumpy - likely because they are forced into squares [More] for decoration upon arrival. Floor boards above this particular bedroom were creaky causing us to hear the person above us whenever they moved. Noise outside in the common area lasted until just after 11pm which was difficult for those trying to go to sleep earlier. Otherwise, clean and friendly staff. [Less]
ADK Conference stay
By 7kelt7
It was a very welcoming environment. I kept getting lost in the hotel and staff was nice about guiding me around. The waitress Friday night did an awesome job!!! Maybe her name was Mary...we had a [More] large group that kept getting larger and she just rolled with it! I appreciated how clean everything was! My room was nice, I think room 206 or 306 (by door 5) and there was some red stains on the floor near the maybe cough definitely had been cleaned, not sure if you can remove it better or not. Just a thought. [Less]
nice location and easy access

Great hotel for great price
By Fugitive Que
I have stayed at several bigger brand hotels and the Holiday Inn always provides the needs that i need in the hotel. Refrigerator in the room are a must for me and parking was very accessible and [More] convenient. Definitely jewel in the city of Columbus. [Less]
Comfortable, but LOUD
By prmode
Inside the room, the heating unit was extremely loud whenever it started/stopped blowing air. It was 40 outside, so too cold to keep the heat off but not cold enough to be able to keep the fan [More] blowing constantly for white noise. So I woke up every time the fan turned on. When the fan was off, I could hear everyone who walked by in the hallway, the elevator down the hall, the vending machine...everything as though they were right next to my bed. The bathroom was probably as clean as it could get, despite the chipping paint and other signs of wear and tear. My room was probably due for a reno The hotel was under renovation and didn't have restaurant/room service in the evening, which is fine, but I wish I had known about that before arriving. There are takeout places nearby, but looking up the options was one more to-do before I could kick back and relax. The main thing saving this hotel was the friendly staff who were patient and helpful with my questions. There was a snafu with the parking lot; the machine wouldn't give me a ticket and I was concerned about being able to leave. To my surprise, they removed the $12 parking charge from my bill. They might have done this for everyone, but they were nice. The cleaning lady was also really sweet when I saw her in the hallway. She was cheerful and friendly, but not nosy/chatty/awkward [Less]
Friendly Staff and Great Service
