In town for the Columbus marathon. Check in was quick and the room was clean and comfortable. Nothing special and what I would expect of a hotel. There is a coffee shop in the lobby but if you want hot food you need to go to the adjacent Max and Erma's. We did that looking for breakfast and found that...

Nice rooms and hotel. Only 1 USB port in the room. That needs to change in today's technology age. Had breakfast next door. Very good hot buffet. I don't really like to valet park. But if it the Same price as overnight parking. Y not? Getting into the drive is tricky when busy

I stay at the Crowne Plaza every time I travel to Columbus for a conference at the Convention Center. I love that is always clean, quiet, updated and the skywalk to the convention center.

I recently stayed at the Crowne Plaza as I was attending a two day conference at the Convention Center which is right across the street. This place was great! It was clean, beautifully decorated with modern touches plus comfortable bed and pillows. Staff was friendly and courteous. Valet service available. I will definitely stay here again!

We stayed overnight after watching THE Ohio State University football team play. The room was clean, the bed was comfy, and great location. You can catch the #2 bus straight up High Street to the university for only $2, much cheaper than a cab and you can catch the same bus back after the game. Would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here for a few days on business and wished I could have stayed longer. Although my stay was during a high school prom and the hotel lobby was full of noisy teenagers, the room floors were totally silent. Because of IHG status, my room was on an executive floor, and not even whispers could be heard. The room...

We go to a convention every year and always stay here. Convention center is across the street but there is a covered walkway to make it very easy to get back and forth. As a lot of convention people stay across the street, it seems like it is always a bit quieter and less hectic at the Crowne Plaza. We...
