Great location and price

We went to the convention center and just took the walk way over that is connected right to the hotel. We were also within about 5 minutes walking distance to Nationwide Arena. I would definitly stay here again!

Forgettable, decent, over priced

Unremarkable, lots of extra charges, and not an overly clean experience. For this price you could stay elsewhere downtown.

Wonderful hotel

We were pleasantly surprised how great our weekend was at the Crowne Plaza Downtown. The hotel staff was very helpful, our room was clean and quiet (comfy bed), and location was perfect as it was close to freeway access to anywhere. Noted that this was not a home game for OSU so don't know if that would make any difference in noise level. Many good restaurants nearby in popular area on High St. We enjoyed drinks in nicely furnished bar area of lobby. We'd come back.

Higher class hotel?

We visit the Short North Market Place which was excellent. It was walking distance from the hotel. About 3 miles was the historic german village, which was interesting.

Extraordinarily Comfortable Bed

Very clean. Came in for Elton John/Billy Joel Concert. Hotel seemed a bit unprepared for the throngs of hungry people after the concert.

Nice weekend Getaway

My friend and I went down to Columbus for a weekend getaway of fun and drinking. This hotel is good because it's walking distance from alot of the bars and resturants. I have been to this hotel several times and will stay here again.
