The hotel itself is nice, but I noticed how thin the walls were when I first got to my room and could hear everything the person was saying on their phone call in the room next to me. Then later in the night....while sitting in the bed watching TV I could feel the headboard of the people on the other... More

I normally stay at Marriott properties when I travel and the Marriott in Columbia is no exception. I am down in Columbia 3-4 times per year and the Marriott is in a great location to my office and a preferred hotel for the company. I have stayed here many times and I have always found the rooms to be in... More

We stayed here to catch a train on the way out and back. The parking garage is connected by a covered walkway making it easy and convenient to enter and exit the hotel without navigating the lobby. The rooms both times were large, clean and comfortable. We didn't use the indoor pool or other amenities but I'd imagine it would... More

Newly remodeled and very nice! Starbuck's in the lobby. Friendly, helpful staff. Clean rooms. Cafe on site for breakfast and dinner only. Bar , also. Many food/snack items available to purchase , even microwaveable items. No microwave in the room, so you'd have to use a public microwave in the lobby. Mini fridge in room. Free shuttle to and from... More

Very nice hotel right on Main St in Downtown Columbia. There were no bellmen that we could see, so the valet attendant found us a cart and helped us with luggage. Room was clean and was a unique layout being on the end of the tower which we liked, but could use some updating. The concierge lounge was great. We... More

Visited this property for a company function. In my original reservation I requested no feather pillows. At checkin the clerk stated my room was "feather free", her words not mine. Got into bed and after about 30 minutes I started coughing and eyes got red. I wondered why. Suffered another half hour and decided since the bed seemed old that... More

I attended a large dance with a seated dinner at the Columbia Marriott last night. There were around 300 people there. I cannot get over how wonderful the food was!

Perfectly nice room. Comfortable. No mini-fridge -- boo. Spacious lobby with restaurant and bar. Very near historic district, Columbia Museum of Art, etc. Parking adds $12/day. Try the greasy spoon next door for breakfast .

One thing about this hotel and others, they treat you like a kid when you paid to enjoy their facilities. When I'm a late check in, I can't help that. All I want to do is relax. And when you have a hot tub and other facilities, one CANNOT enjoy because they have set hours. THAT is being treated like... More

The Columbia Marriott is an excellent choice in downtown Columbia. It is a great location on the corner of Hampton and Main with plenty of lounges and restaraunts within walking distance.
