From check in to check out you get the royal treatment. Fantastic location in the middle of town. Great facilities for the business traveler and the best concierge lounge I've been in yet. Rates are very good, but they do charge for parking. Even so, can not beat the price or location. Staff was friendly and helpful. The room was... More

LOVED this hotel the second we walked in! The lobby is incredible with massive vaulted ceilings and beautiful sitting areas. You're right downtown Columbia so you can literally walk out the door, look to the left and see the State Building. Lots to see and do with this Marriott as your base. We arrived on a Friday night and were... More

I have stayed here on previous visits to Columbia, the staff is always friendly and the rooms are always nice, clean and comfortable. You're really in walking distance to all of the local dining areas and bars if that is what you choose to do. When I go back, this is where I will continue to stay.

This is a basic, somewhat dated Marriott Hotel. The concierge lounge is pretty basic as to furniture and the food is what you'd get for breakfast at a Hilton Garden Inn or equivalent. Location is good.

The customer service persons at the front desk were the friendliest of any hotel I have ever been to. I called to advise we would be late and with Tamika's sense of humor, we had to meet her in person when we arrived. The staff made the stay fun and personal. I have never been treated like this at any... More

From our original contact with this hotel to the last day of our convention everything was outstanding. The customer service from the front door to restaurant to banquets is nothing short of phenomenal. As a meeting planner for my organization it was so refreshing to deal with a TEAM of people who all focused on one single thing: making my... More

In May 2014, I spent 14 days at the Columbia Marriott. My college-age child was in the hospital across the street with a serious illness. I have to say that the customer service I received at this hotel was nothing but extraordinary! By the time my family and I could leave, it was like saying goodbye to family. Anything I... More

I recently spent a week at this hotel and was very impressed. I have stayed in some very nice hotels around the world and I do not recall having a better service experience anywhere.

Staff were always pleasant. I felt room could have been cleaner. In the week I was there I did not think they vacuumed once. If they did the dust bunnies and 2 half peanuts were still under the edge of the bed when I left.
