4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a great property! Wonderful customer service, newly renovated rooms, free breakfast and coffee!! I've enjoyed my stay; however, it is hard for a business traveler to have limited internet access. Their wireless does not reach the 5th floor?!! Thankfully there is a nice lobby with wireless signal.

The Hampton Inn Columbia - Downtown Historic District has been "home" to my family and I on several trips to Columbia to visit our USC son. Each visit leads to the next one. The hotel is so convenient, it is very clean, the rooms have been upgraded, and the staff is always very friendly. This is definitely one of the... More

We had a great stay, We met our adult children and their families and the desk staff was very helpful although they were not staying there. They allowed us to admit them to the parking lot so that we could transfer some packages and were very nice when we used the lobby to sit and talk.

I chose this hotel because of its convenience in downtown Columbia that is walking distance to anywhere you need to go. The staff was wonderful and the rooms were very clean. I would stay here again and recommend this place to anyone looking for a great hotel in Columbia. The only thing I found was a little high was the... More

Zero complaints and I stay every weekend...a++. Great management and front desk. After a long night out in the vista the night crew goes above and beyond to assure that you have everything you need before calling it a night, from a bottled water to assisting in ordering food. Breakfast is great and they include pretty much anything you could... More

The Hampton Inn Downtown Columbia is a delightful place to stay. My only regret is that I did not get to actually enjoy the hotel longer. The evening reception was very nice, and I would have preferred to stay and eat the pizza rather than eat the "farm to table local" cuisine at Modern Supply. The complimentary breakfast was the...

We stayed in Columbia overnight to celebrate a family members birthday. We chose Hampton because of its proximity to Carolina Strip Club steak house (right across the street). The staff greeted us right away. There was a line for check-in so they gave out complimentary snacks and bottle water while we waited. The room and bathroom was nice, clean, and... More

My favorite place to stay so far! Friendly staff. Clean room. Insanely convenient location. So many awesome places within walking distance, like just across the street! It's surrounded in awesomeness. Bars, restaurants, cute little shops galore.I seen an Old Chicago is being built next door, so that's cool. I was happy with the size of the room, and got a... More

if you plan to enjoy columbia and do a little moon lighting this is the best place to stay, especially now that they've refurbed the rooms. Me and my crew come to town each year for the beerfest and this hotel is staggering steps away from the event center and all the local lounges and bars. I can't wait until... More

We stayed at the Hampton Inn last week and it is one of a kind! It has all the amenities of a normal HI with an amazing historic aspect, not to mention a great location. The entire staff went above and beyond to ensure we were taken care of. We will be back soon!
