The hotel was conveniently located at the Vista, across from Trustus Theatre. The lady at the front desk was friendly. Parking was a breeze. The pool area was small but neat and clean. The room was very nice and clean. Plenty of room for the three of us. The couch was comfy. Publix grocery store is only one block away.... More

What a fantastic experience. Favorites were the fully stocked bar and the healthy breakfast! Rooms were more than plenty, almost gluttonous! I could see my family of 4 being comfortable for a long weekend. Woke up at the lobby with the healthiest breakfast I have ever eaten as a "free hotel meal" and went to bed after great conversation and... More

My Columbia office is downtown so this is my favorite place to stay, but it's hard to get a room -- even months out -- that is my only complaint. It's convenient to everything downtown and itt's within walking distance to the Vista and my other favorite Columbia hangout -- the Carolina Ale House. It's a newer hotel so the... More

More modern than some of the competing hotels in area. Have spent several nights here and generally a great experience every time. Staff is friendly and rooms have always been clean and inviting. It is difficult to book at times due to it's high demand.Can also be fairly pricey as hotel reaches capacity. A little concerned regarding a recent post... More

This hotel is very conveniently located to the Vista area of Columbia. Although extremely expensive on home football weekends, it is probably worth it. Nice hotel. Rooms are very nice with standard rooms having two separate bathrooms areas, one with a sink and toilet and one with a sink and shower. Pullout sofa in living room is another plus. Standard... More

What a great hotel on every level, except for the in-room bathrooms. There are sliding-glass doors that offer almost no privacy. And even if you are okay with your family hearing everything, the fact that they let light pour into the room means you're waking whoever is still in bed. We ended up using the lobby bathroom, which is not... More
