Really happy choosing this place. Staff was great help. I like that the pool is open till 11 PM. Breakfast was really good and staff was working their butts off to keep it full. It was a nice clean property.

Enjoy the Holiday Inn Express & Suites located right outside of downtown Columbus, in the heart of the Ohio State University! This is an upscale luxurious hotel with every amenity you can think of. We offer a free extended hot breakfast as well.
