Rooms here were large and very clean. Housekeeping was thorough and my hat is off to the Housekeeping supervisor, Maria who went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant after working very long hours in the convention center. Every employee we encountered was pleasant and exhibited a strong service mentality. That is what we should expect in a hotel,...

In town for USA Fencing Nationals, I booked here for the second year in a row. The desk staff is very helpful and friendly. Rooms are large and very clean. Housekeeping even added extra coffee for the in-room coffee maker, at my request. The hotel is across the street from the Convention Center and next to a stop on the...

We were in town for a convention and had no complaints about our accommodations. The room was clean, comfortable and had everything one needs including a refrigerator . We did not need the pricey valet service but did not know this until the end of our trip. They parked our car in the public parking lot and charged us double....

Stay at the Crown Plaza for a fencing tournament at the convention centre. It was a good stay! The convention centre was right across the street and was about a 10 min. walk to the hall we fenced in. Showers were great, front desk were helpful & shuttle was a great bonus in getting groceries!

I’m in Columbus at least once a year for a convention and business and have stayed at the Crowne Plaza before. It’s across the street from the convention center so you’re just a short stroll away from the exhibit hall as well as all the bars and restaurants on High street and the arena district. It’s tough to beat its...

Nice, convenient downtown location. Very close to the Nationwide Arena and Huntington Park, home of the MiBL team, the Columbus Clippers. A lot of restaurants are nearby. Valet parking is available. While there is no restaurant on the premises, there is a restaurant next door.

We used the Crowne Plaza hotel for our wedding block - our venue was The Bluestone. We had a lot of hotels to choose from for our wedding block, and we originally picked Crowne Plaza because they were the only hotel in that area to offer a private shuttle service. We wanted our guests to be able to take a...

This hotel felt a bit dated. It was not bad, but it also was not great. Our room would not stay at a consistent temperature. It was either really hot or really cold, which made it hard for us to sleep. There are other hotels in the area for about the same price that are better options in my opinion.

Hotel was in a great location (Arena district and short north). We stayed on the 12th floor (club level) and it was very nice and quiet. Our room was small but nice and comfy.
