Spent Vantine's weekend at the Columbia Marriott. The front desk staff was very friendly. There was a mixup with our room regarding the bed situation(did not get the doubles I requested and had even called to confirm again a few days befor check-in). We had four people, so one queen bed was certainly not going to work! They said it... More

I stayed here one night for business but had a very pleasant experience. The staff was extremely very friendly and helpful, and when we checked in asked about our departure palns and helped book a taxi for our early departure. The next morning when I asked the receptionist about our reservations, she immediately called for another taxi as she realized... More

From my first phone call to their group sales department to our departure, the Columbia Marriott was amazing. Check-in for 80 people was flawless, the rooms were clean and comfortable (not to mention ready early!), our three banquet meals were delicious, and our two charter buses could park right out front. The location was perfect for our group, easy access... More

The hotel is very nice, the staff is extremely friendly, but this stay of 5 nights I had room service three times and three times they either forgot part of my order or gave me the wrong food. The only other slight irritation was the bathroom was small. Recommendation, stay, eat in the restaurant, but if you order room service... More

Rooms are on the small side but ample and very clean. Bed was very comfortable. Bathroom, while small, was clean and fully functional. Get the room service for breakfast. Worth the price. Note: the tip is include in the delivery slip. WiFi was slow and cumbersome. Fee for faster service was typical Marriott. Staff, across the board, was exceptional with... More

All around great staff! Whether it be Travis, Jules, logan, Nicole, or Amanda I feel welcomed and at home. If I lived in town this would be my regular bar. Rooms are comfortable and the location can't be beat, convenient to everything in town.

Great location- we walked down main street to some great stores and restaurants and walked to the vista as well! We used meter marking on the one weekday we were there- then it was free on weekends, so no expensive parking! Great military discount and large room!

There is really nothing to do in Columbia exept the zoo. This hotel is really modern but it's the rooms that count not the lobby. We stayed in the junior suite and it was fairly small. We also had access to the lounge we thought the lounge would be better than it was. The only thing they had were sodas... More
