... and I end up giving the hotel the same score - 4 out of 5. Like last year, I was here for the Banzaicon anime convention. Once again, I was given a room on a high floor (11th floor, #1125 this time) so noise wasn't an issue at all. The view wasn't too bad either. My room was one... More

If you are a frequent Marriott customer (I'm gold elite) you will recognize this property as the "before remodel" variety. New lobby -- but still a pig with lipstick. My room had an alarm clock that didn't work and one of two TV's that didn't work. Well worn furniture. Stay elsewhere in downtown Columbia until you read that the property... More

Stayed there 10/10/14 thru 10/13/14 There was a Anime convention going on. Place was overrun with young nerds. But I'm from NYC, so none of that mattered. Hotel was awesome! Chef in the lobby Friday night cooking up shrimp and grits. I'm a vegan, so none of that mattered. Needed more towels at 8pm, went down to the front desk.... More

We came to Columbia for Bonzaicon which was at this hotel. Overall, our stay was outstanding. Pros: 1) Outstanding service. From check-in to check-out the staff's professionalism, courtesy, and customer service were above and beyond. The HVAC went offline the last night of our stay making our room VERY hot. I casually mentioned this at checkout and the room was... More

I visited the Columbia Marriott for another business trip during the week of June 9th - June 13th, 2014. During my stay the U.S. Army Special Forces Assc.

First time at the Columbia Marriott and had an awesome experience. First class experience from the valet/check-in to check-out. The location was perfect.

We had the most awesome stay at the Marriott during Parents Weekend, and notoriously crazy time to stay at any hotel in any college town. During our stay we ate and drank just about everything on the menu including the brisket served outside the hotel on game day. Everything was just amazing and the service was stellar - even though...

Hotel is replacing A/C for entire building. Rooms are humid and hot. Staff is less than truthful when addressing the problem. I guess management does not mind inconveniencing the guests, instead of doing the right thing and closing the hotel until maintenance can be completed. unhappy Platinum Medallion long-term member

This is my first visit back to the Columbia Marriott since the hotel renovated. The public space and rooms look great. I ate breakfast in the restaurant. The waffles were delicious-a must have. I'm looking forward to my next trip.
