Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Columbus University Area - OSU
Ranked #50 of 143 Hotels in Columbus
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 April 2012

This hotel was fine, very clean and the service was efficient. Wi fi worked well. We didn't use the pool or workout room but they both looked very pleasant. It is nice to have a fridge and microwave in the room.

The room arrangement could be better. We booked a 2 bed "suite" which was very large. It was furnished with a sofa with coffee table plus small dining table with 2 chairs. This seating area was only separated from the beds by a short 2 foot wall, not really a separate room. But the one TV in the room was placed near the beds, far enough away that it wasn't a comfortable viewing distance to the sofa area. There is also a big comfy chair in the room, but it is all the way on the other side of the beds, not part of the sofa conversation area. so, if you want a lot of space, you'll find it here, but you can't sit together and watch TV comfortably.

Hot breakfast included biscuits, sausages, sausage gravy and sausage omelet. Maybe it was sausage day when we were there? I tasted the omelet, thinking it was disc shaped scrambled egg - it should have been labeled for these of us who don't eat pork. Yuck. There were plenty of cold items and a good pancake making machine.

We had a group of 15 visitors from China stay here for just over two weeks. The Holiday Inn provided excellent shuttle service, was flexible when we needed it, kept in close touch by phone to make sure we were getting what we needed, and helped our guests arrange taxi service when they made their own non-program shopping trips.

Newer property and directly right across the street from where my husband had a conference at University Plaza Hotel. Hot breakfast was very nice, indoor pool and hot tub was clean. Room was very new, clean and quiet. We had 2 queen beds and a pull out sofa. Rooms have a coffee maker, microwave and sink with dishwasher.

Room Tip: They have a few snacks for sale but there is a Kroger very close by or bring your own. Also we would...

New hotel, modern good rooms, small pool etc. The service and front desk was really great. For few more bucks we took the Jaczzi suite and it was fun.
