We stayed here one night during Thanksgiving weekend. The hotel is centrally located near the visitor's center and a short walk from the capitol and historic area. The room was comfortable, breakfast was tasty and well presented, and the staff were pleasant. Another reviewer noted that work (upgrades?) was happening that seemed to interfere with their experience. On Saturday morning,... More

What a beautiful property in the heart of Columbia. A fully renovated building with old Southern exterior, and a completely up to date interior. Great price and a wonderful staff make this a "can't miss" place.

This is a very nice Hampton Inn in an absolutely prime location in Columbia. Restaunts (good ones) in every direction. My only issue was a rattling sound that came from my ceiling all night long. I noticed it as soon as I got in bed, but though I would sleep through it. Wrong. But when I told the front desk... More

For my 1st stay at a Holiday Inn, I am so excited. Here in the Downtown Columbia area, the hotel looks historic on the outside, but once you go in everything is up-to-date and very sparkling clean. My room on the 2nd floor is small & cozy. Everything is neat and organized. Staying here for two night and three days... More

Located right in the center of downtown at the Vista where all the action happens. Convenient to restaurants and entertainment and within walking distance to many downtown locations. Rooms are typical Hampton Inn, hotel is clean, staff is friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was good and typical Hampton Inn (waffles, some type of egg dish, oatmeal, bagels, pastries, yogurt, etc). Coffee... More

I checked in on November 24th and checked out November 25th. The night of the 24th they had a painter who was dragging equipment up and down the stairwell beside my room all through the night and early hours of the morning. I was finally able to get to sleep around 2 a.m. However around 7 a.m. the maintenance technician... More

Great hotel in the center of downtown Columbia. Quiet, clean and accessible. Breakfast one of the best free offers by any hotel. Rooms very clean but furniture and hvac need upgrading but my no means dingy and the room mostly clean and comfortable. Felt like home on my 3rd stay in 2014.

Extremely overpriced with many undisclosed taxes and fees. I prepaid a non-refundable rate to try and get it down as best I could, but there were marketing fees, tourism fees, transportation taxes, etc. on top of the normal sales tax and state tax overlays you see at other hotels. I asked the front desk about these taxes as it appeared... More
