This hotel was such a surprise in its architecture and unusual design. A covered entrance gives a good first impression. Inside the lobby is laid out like village shops and the indoor pool area beyond was nicely designed. Lovely stained glass features throughout. Rooms well equipped though the heat/ air system a bit noisy. Staff were a bit random with...

We had so much fun! The staff here is definitely the best we have ever encountered ever. Sitting at the pool. I would see multiple staff members walking the area keeping everything at its best. We could tell they cared about making the guests happy. We stayed at a poolside room with our kids. It was a great room by...

This hotel still has decor from the 70's it appears but they have done a very good job of keeping it up. Place was clean. Rooms have been updated and were very nice. Restaurant and bar are quaint. Neat place to stay. The breakfast was great!!

The Clarion in Columbus, IN is a hotel that is also used as conference center. When I went to the Clarion I went during the winter to use their indoor pool. The price was fairly cheap starting at $83 for a king bed, and going to $273 for a suite. From personal experience the Clarion is an awesome hotel. They...

Stayed here years ago when it was a Holiday Inn first time since it had changed hands. The indoor pool and play area are still nice and the indoor appearance of the Hotel has charm. The bar/restaurant look charming as well. The food was great the server was friendly but it was very slow service. Our king bed room was...

Looks are deceiving. The front desk person was very nice, lobby was clean. Went to our room and it was dusty and carpet dirty. Bed was not so comfortable, took a shower and the tub would not drain so they sent a maintenance man up which jessee told me he didn't even have a clue how to fix it but...

We took 8 nieces and nephews to this hotel (ages 8 - 18) as a Christmas present. They all had a great time! The pool area was the highlight of the trip, but the rest of the hotel was nice as well. Breakfast buffet was included with the room and was very good! Our rooms were located in the tower...

You can tell by the common areas that this used to be a nice hotel. The indoor pool is large and very nice as is the giant hot tub. There are ping pong & pool tables and an arcade. The actual rooms are in major need of updating. The mattresses are quite hard and you can feel the springs through...

I am a youth director and brought my youth group to Columbus for the Indiana District Youth Gathering Nov. 11-13. The Gathering reserved a block of rooms at the Clarion so that is where we stayed. I was impressed with how friendly the staff was both to me and my teen group. I love the retro look of the hotel...

We stayed here for a couple of nights as we visited this amazing town. The staff was wonderful and the suite we stayed in very interesting. This is an old Holiday Inn and we wee told the architect visited all the significant places in Columbus....and there are many....and designed it with those visits in mind. He was a picker and...
