I have been travelling for business every week for the past seven years. I stay at either Hilton or Marriott properties. This, by far, has been my most fun experience. I ususally order room service however the staff here made me feel so welcome that I decided to stay in the lounge, get my work done and eat my dinner.... More

I travel to Columbia on business at least one a month but this is the first time I have stayed at the Marriott Columbia. And, I am glad that I gave it a try because I will be back. Although an older property, it has been recently renovated. The front desk and bell staff are outstanding and welcoming. They remember... More

What a hidden surprise! Midlands' restaurant is a great addition to The Marriott. As a local, I am always looking to find new good restaurants, and I found it with Midlands'! Their shrimp and grits are definitely best in the city and their collard greens and mac n cheese are delicious..better than homemade! Let's not forget that they make their... More

I stayed six nites at this hotel recently and can not say enough good things about my stay. The staff is excellent, the rooms very nice and quiet and the central location is near many things in the city. A new team has just opened a new restaurant and it is way better than hotel food. Staff is sharp and... More

easy to park out front while you confirm your reservation and then parking is around the corner in a parking garage. Staff were very helpful and very friendly. Room was very comfortable - had the 7th floor with a balcony...which was a bit of a joke - yes it was there BUT it overlooked the parking garages. Because of elite... More

The hotel is located right in downtown Columbia. I have stayed there several times over the last couple years. Over the last year of so, they have been updating the property. The work is finally coming to an end, and I like the results! The staff at this hotel is always pleasant. The bar area is nice. The breakfast is... More

Like the small town feel of Columbia, this is a big hotel but feels like a small one. I was greeted very warmly and jovially by Josh, the front desk manager. Even though the hotel has 14 floors, things were fairly close to one another and it is very manageable. I had an end room, with a balcony that I... More

I am a reasonably regular business traveller and this hotel is not up to the standard I usually encounter, or up to the standard of Marriotts elsewhere in the World.

This hotel should not be branded Marriott. It is actually terrible, though they changed the groundfloor amenities for the better. Where to start? Rooms are old, very dark, half of the lights did not work, second day, no towels and they took all the glasses away. Roomkey did not work, bad internet connection, though free. Concierge level access was nice... More
