I have been coming to this hotel for 2 years on business and the one consistent thing that amazes me is the shining stars this hotel attracts and retains as valued staff. Food and Beverage is, of course, a hard job to master. Fortunately, Liliana Zamfirescu is a constant and clearly a shining star at this hotel. She adds just... More

Chynna at the front desk was great and put me in a very nice corner room with a balcony on the concierge lounge floor. Lounge had a minimal selection for breakfast but enough to start the day. Midlands restaurant was delicious for dinner and I would be happy to stay there on my next trip to Columbia.

Stayed at this hotel nov 2014. Great location in downtown. Near major highways and I-26, 20 & 77. The bar area had 4 in the wall tv's that made for great football watching both sat & sun. The only down side was parking. Valet was $24 per day/self park in the garage next door was $12 per day. The hotel... More

My wife and I stayed at the Columbia Marriott the first week in November. We were there for a church conference that was located in close proximity to the hotel.

This was a fantastic experience, and reminds me why I like to stay in the big hotels from time to time. From the minute we got inside, it was a great trip.

Stayed over a weekend with my collegiate team and it was everything that I expect from a full service marriott. Didn't have a valet or bell hops but that wasn't needed or expected for us. Room was fairly typical for a marriott property which is good. Very convenient to downtown eateries and shopping and the Saturday morning sidewalk bizarre was... More

The three most important things I look for in a hotel (1) Cleanliness, (2) a comfortable bed (3) quiet surroundings. This hotel met the mark on all three. The room ( while a bit on the small side), was very inviting,. The linen coverlet was warm and cozy and the room was extremely quiet. No slamming doors or loud ACs.... More

I have stayed here several times over the last year and have been very pleased with the service and facility. But I just stayed here for two nights and was very disappointed.
