4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

While I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this Marriott location, I did notice the room I was staying in needed some TLC; a little outdated to say the least. The staff was very welcoming. Loved the concierge girl, Chloe, the week I stayed, great personality and very friendly, she recommended the best Italian restaurant just around the corner. The pool... More

We were warmly greeted upon arrival, and the check-in process was expedient. The lobby area was spacious and welcoming. The room was clean and comfortable, though the bathroom was a bit cramped. We did notice a strange smell in the room the evening we arrived, but it dissipated by morning. The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of many... More

We were only there for one night, but we loved the stay. We had a room with a balcony on the 8th floor and it had a ok view of the pool on top of the parking garage. But you definitely wouldn't want to be any lower on that side of the hotel. That staff was extremely nice, and accommodating.... More

The hotel is in a great location. 10 minute walk to the Vista nightlife, restaurants and bars. The rooms need to be upgraded. The concierge lounge ran out of water and milk. The walkway from the hotel to the self parking garage is not air conditioned and has little to no ventilation. By the time you get to your vehicle... More

The rooms were adequate, location of the hotel is convenient to downtown shops and restaurants. Service was not excellent - was told that there was a charge for self park, then later found out it was free for the holiday weekend - seems like staff should have correct information. Access to the hotel from the parking garage is through the... More

This hotel is centrally located in Columbia - a fairly easy walk to the USC campus. The rooms are showing some wear, and could perhaps use an update. But overall, it was nice. Just overpriced for what you got (but it was a football weekend, so no doubt the rates were raised for that).

Upon check-in, I was impressed with the lobby and front dest associate. However, once I opened the door to my room, the impression changed. Very standard room but below standard for a Full-size Marriott. The room needs updating from the carpet to the bedding and bathroom as well as the furniture. Not impressed enough to return to this particualar Marriott.

Clean, well appointed property. Room was decent size & very clean. Nothing overly fancy, but nice location ( maybe 5 minute walk to the restaurant & shopping areas), all the common areas were clean & fresh looking, and the staff was very friendly.

We enjoyed our weekend stay in this high-rise, downtown hotel, located a few blocks from the capitol and within walking distance of many restaurants and shops. A garage is attached to the hotel; valet-and self-parking are available. Breakfast in the restaurant was especially nice. The buffet selection--fruit, breakfast breads, cereal, oatmeal, grits, bacon, sausage, eggs, biscuits and gravy, potatoes--offers something... More

We really enjoyed our stay. The A/C worked great and kept our room nice and cold which was a blessing since outside it was 103. The fitness center was well equipped.
