Thank you for taking the time to comment about your recent stay. The city of Columbus has a lot to offer visitors. The city is working diligently to revive the downtown area and there are several bars and restaurants already in operation and more are scheduled to open soon. The Commons, Kids Commons and Zaharako's are all great places to take the kids. Our hotel caters to families and business travelers and we have a lot of different amenities than your average hotel (full-service restaurant, game room, pool tables, ping pong tables, etc.) I hope that if you are in the area again that you will choose to stay at the Clarion!

Great location

Posted Mar 17, 2014
Great location, comfy mattress and really nice breakfast. Friendly staff too. Because it was a cold weekend- once we were inside the pool area, we didn't much care for having to access our room by having to walk outside again. It's an unusual layout and hard to explain. But will stay again...when it's warmer.

Pros: The fact that it was dog friendly
Cons: Plumbing
The shower was not working very good. The water was coming filling the tub. The shower head was not working properly

First of all, thank you for taking the time to comment about your recent stay with us here at the Clarion Hotel and Conference Center. I was sorry to read that you experienced problems with the plumbing in particular that the drain in the shower was not working properly and neither was the shower head. The hotel does have a preventative maintenance program where items such as these are addressed, so I will be speaking with the Chief of Maintenance to make sure that this issue is addressed before it causes problems for other guests. I hope that everything else during your stay was good and that you will consider staying with us again when you are in the area.

Clarion Hotel

Posted Mar 4, 2014
Pros: Staff helpfulness.
Cons: Nothing comes to mind.
Location: shopping nearby.
Very nice front desk staff and dining staff as well. When asked about any local dining places to go, the staff gave us a couple of nice places to eat. Later on we spent time in the bar enjoying COLD draft beers. If I were to be in the area again, I would stay here again.

ALMOST Perfect.......

Posted Mar 3, 2014 on Hotels.com
I stayed overnight with my wife here before heading to Nashville. Overall, our stay was top notch. The perfection begins upon entering the cute, quaint lobby. Our room was spacious and well lit. This hotel has one of the most beautiful pool/hot tub areas we've ever seen. The water temp for both was absolutely perfect and sparkling clean. Loved the pool tables and game room too! The bartender that evening was super friendly and the blackened mahi mahi is to die for! There are 2 complaints worth mentioning, however. The bathroom fan and the temperature control fan in our room got stuck "on" so we heard the motor ALL NIGHT LONG! Made for a nice headache upon "waking" in the AM. Also, the breakfast buffet was sub-par at best. Food was luke warm to cold and not much by way of choices. With that exception, we still very much enjoyed our stay and would definitely return again. We would however request a different room should they try to put us in the same one again and We'd probably skip the "free breakfast" and just eat elsewhere.

Thank you for taking the time to comment about your recent stay. I was happy to read that you enjoyed the hotel and all the wonderful amenities that we have available. I was sorry to read about the temperature control for the fan getting stuck making it run all night resulting in you having a headache the next morning. Maintenance should have been called and they would have worked to remedy the problem or you could have requested to be moved to another room to avoid the annoyance of the fan. I was also sorry to read that you did not enjoy our breakfast buffet. I have stayed in several hotels and I have to say that our hotel offers quite a bit more in the way of choices than most hotels on the market. As for the food not being warm, that is an issue that I will be discussing with the Food and Beverage Director. Improvements will definitely be made in this area. I hope that if you are in the area in the near future that you will consider staying with us at the Clarion again!

The pool an hot tub was the best. Love it.

Posted Feb 16, 2014
Pros: pool an hot tub that what I went there for tied of being cold an snow want to get warm an rest..
Cons: just do some dusting...
Location: I didn't go an do anything just the pool an hot tub.
Went walking around find a lot of places that could use a good dusting. the tables in the bar room need to be dusted really bad. just because they don't use them all the time still could dusted them..

Fun night away

Posted Feb 3, 2014
My wife and I have stayed here twice now and have enjoyed ourselves. We stayed in the tower which was very nice. Comfortable bedding, plenty of towels, clean room. The temperature controls seemed off because the room was very warm but it wasnt that big a deal. The hotel has an interesting feel to it. unique decor and a nice bar/restaurant with a really friendly staff. The pool area is nice. The location is convenient.

Business meeting in Columbus

Posted Dec 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel was a little over-priced and they was a loud, noisy fan outside the room which was annoying. But at least they gave me an outisde facing room so I could smoke easily.
