Small rooms and lots of constructing which wasn't mentioned until check in and you have to go all over to get to the to floors and elevators went down 4 times in the 2 days we were there. So we had to do the status for 5 floors then all the way to the elevator on the other side of the building. Probably won't go again honestly.

When were checking in front desk staff commented onprice I paid for room. OAnther staff member came over and pointed at computer screen and then other staff member said yeah I did tell her that. I asked what w s going on, she ignored my question and quickly handed me my keys. While in room relaxing, fire alarm went. Hall was filled with smoke and door to exit stairway was LOCKED. Had to go clear to other end of hall , lots of panicked people thinking we were trapped. As we made our way do hall alarm was deemed false and we were told to go back to our rooms. hotel is vey noisy at all hours of night.

Not sure I would recommend this hotel. The room was a little dated and near the AC unit close to the window, the wallpaper was peeling off the wall and there was mold all under the wallpaper. It was not healthy. We decided to stay as all the hotels were booked in that area.

Pros: Location was great!! Very clean & reasonable priced!
Location: Great location for activities at Nationwide Arena & Convention Center!!
Perfect location for any activities at Nationwide Arena or the Convention Center! We had tickets to the Columbus Blue Jackets game & we were given a ride on the hotel shuttle to the Arena & then we walked back! Not far at all!! Enjoyed the bar there after the game! The room was very clean & nice size! Would stay again!!

Moved rooms twice, followed by police visit!!!

Cons: Noisy
My husband and I stayed at the Crown to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. We arrived at the hotel after 11:00 p.m., and within the first half hour were moved rooms as a result of the college party that was taking place in the surrounding rooms. Later that night, around 2:30 a.m., an intoxicated group across the hall began yelling, shouting, cursing, and breaking items. An female was yelling and chasing her boyfriend down the hall, spreading blood on the walls outside our room. Hotel security came and left two times, followed by a call to the police at 3:15 a.m. When we left the room the next morning, blood was still on the walls outside our room. I reported the events to the supervisor on staff and was told that there was nothing they could do, but if I wanted I could get a free coffee. We returned home tired and dissapointed.

I was very pleased with mt stay at Crowne Plaza

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
I would highly recommend the Crowne Plaza to anyone visiting the columbus area. The motel is located right downtown, with great places to eat and lots of entertainment. The Nationwide Arena is only 2 blocks from the motel. Well within walling distance. This is where the Blue Jackets play, and home of many concerts. . The Civic Center is also within walking distance, which is right across the street of the Crowne Plaza. There are places to eat and even a brewrey district for spirits of your liking. Enjoy it, we sure did.
