The Crowne Plaza Columbus - Dublin Hotel has completed a property-wide transformation of its guestrooms and suites, meeting and event spaces, lobby, restaurant, fitness center and public spaces.
Now under the management of Interstate Hotel & Resorts, the hotel in Dublin's Metro Place Business Park invested close to $35,000 per guestroom and an additional $3 million for the remainder of the facelift.
The 215-room Crowne Plaza Columbus – Dublin, one of the area's three full-service hotels, is located at 600 Metro Place N. off the I-270 Columbus outer belt, near from Ashland, IBM, Honda, Cardinal Health and other local companies.
Each of the property's guestroom types (standard rooms, larger junior suites and sky light rooms with elevated ceilings) were completely transformed with a new bedding package, part of Crowne Plaza's Sweet Advantage program, new bathrooms, furnishings, carpeting, lighting, art and wall coverings. The property also offers a five-bedroom Presidential Suite.
Guestrooms include an in-room Keurig coffee maker and a mini-refrigerator, while 15 junior suites are equipped with microwave ovens. The hotel's third floor is designated as a Quiet Zone where housekeeping and engineering services are limited.
Besides the transformation of its guestrooms, the hotel's new look and feel includes the renovation of its 14,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, and the addition of ergonomically designed Hermann Miller chairs, making the Crowne Plaza Columbus – Dublin the first hotel in the market to invest in this higher-end feature.
Meeting and event spaces at the hotel include the 6,000-square-foot Grand Dublin Ballroom which accommodates up to 700 guests.
Other updates include a new lobby experience with new registration pods; the addition of two connectivity stations where guests can charge mobile devices, new fiber-optic connectivity throughout the hotel; an expanded health club twice its previous size; enhancements to the three-meal Dublin Metro Grill and the Dublin Metro Bar; and updates to the hotel's exterior, courtyard and indoor pool.
