Horrible, run down and grungy. Things that were broken and did not work: the bathroom light, the hairdryer, the room phone, the room door, literally every piece of equipment in the "fitness center". This place is not charming like it's photos show. It is dirty and broken down. The"buffet breakfast" was in a smelly old room with stained chairs, Wonder...

My husband and I recently stayed traveled to Columbus for his sister's memorial service. As soon as the staff found out the reason for our visit, they showed us every courtesy possible. I can't tell you how much their kindness meant in our time of sorrow! They offered to extend our checkout time to allow us extra time to dress...

My son had a baseball tournament in Columbus and we stayed here for just one night. The pool area was fabulous and the staff was nice. The elevator, yes one, was super slow and it was faster to take the stairs. The breakfast was just ok. Make sure to check the dishes before using them as I found SEVERAL were...

The Clarion conference center is interesting because it has the remains of a bakery, some interesting wood, and lamps. That said. The inside atrium is dominated by a pool with heavy chlorine odor. There are also pool and ping pong tables. So, if you don't have kids looking for amusement, you might not find it restful.

This may sound crazy, but I often rate a hotel by its shower. This was excellent. Great water pressure, temperature, etc. Excellent. That being said, everything else in the room was nice too. Comfortable bed, the TV worked, the heat was easy to control, and ti was fairly quiet. There are a few issues right now. They're doing some renovation...

This hotel was such a surprise in its architecture and unusual design. A covered entrance gives a good first impression. Inside the lobby is laid out like village shops and the indoor pool area beyond was nicely designed. Lovely stained glass features throughout. Rooms well equipped though the heat/ air system a bit noisy. Staff were a bit random with...

This hotel still has decor from the 70's it appears but they have done a very good job of keeping it up. Place was clean. Rooms have been updated and were very nice. Restaurant and bar are quaint. Neat place to stay. The breakfast was great!!

The Clarion in Columbus, IN is a hotel that is also used as conference center. When I went to the Clarion I went during the winter to use their indoor pool. The price was fairly cheap starting at $83 for a king bed, and going to $273 for a suite. From personal experience the Clarion is an awesome hotel. They...

Stayed here years ago when it was a Holiday Inn first time since it had changed hands. The indoor pool and play area are still nice and the indoor appearance of the Hotel has charm. The bar/restaurant look charming as well. The food was great the server was friendly but it was very slow service. Our king bed room was...

Looks are deceiving. The front desk person was very nice, lobby was clean. Went to our room and it was dusty and carpet dirty. Bed was not so comfortable, took a shower and the tub would not drain so they sent a maintenance man up which jessee told me he didn't even have a clue how to fix it but...
