I stayed at the Holiday Inn Capitol Square this past week while attending a convention. Unfortunately, the same crumbs and orange seed on the floor, hair on the shower wall, and pink gel on the toilet and shower curtain that was there on Tuesday when I checked in were still present Thursday when I checked out. In my opinion, the...

The wife and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Columbus Downtown Capitol Square in late February after attending a Head and the Heart concert at the Palace Theatre. It was a great hotel experience. The only drawbacks were the bit of renovation going on in the lobby, and the broken ice machine on 12. Aside from that, it was an...

I was stuck without a printed greyhound ticket and they weren't able to print me one out, instead insisting I find a printer myself somewhere in a city I've never been to with two suitcases. So I walked over to this Holiday Inn across the street. I had to make an account to write this review, that's how awesome Joe...

We stayed here for two days. The staff was more than friendly. Free shuttle, which can't be beat. Great bar and food. I guess the same boy complaint is the walls were paper thin. You could hear exactly what was going on in the rooms beside you and a couple of doors down. This is a huge negative for me....

Hotel is under construction but offered everything we needed for a weekend business trip -- burger bar is surprisingly good and staff directed us to a great breakfast location (Superchefs) within walking distance. Rooms were clean, bed was comfortable, we had some minor trouble with the heating system but it was resolved.

The outside is being updated through a remodel but don't let that scare you. Our room was immaculate, well appointed and quiet. The staff was very accommodating. We were close enough to walk to The Ohio Theatre but snow had started so the front desk sent us in the hotel shuttle. Will be returning in March 2017.
