The team at this hotel is great and makes you feel very welcome. I was welcomed to my room personally by the Area Director of Sales Holly Boozer. The leadership at the hotel makes it one of the best Hampton Inns in the country.

This is my favorite hotel in Columbia. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are undergoing renovation, the new look is pleasing. The location downtown, within walking distance of many restaurants and bars is a real plus. You cant go wrong here.

Everyone that works here is so friendly and helpful. Amenities are great - breakfast, cookies, nightly food and drinks. We've stayed 3 times since November and will stay a lot more over the next 4 yrs. Home away from home.

The location of the hotel is convenient and the front desk staff is nice. If you are in a room like I was facing the street you are going to hear every step and conversation outside the hotel. I also had some knuckleheads out in the hallway, laughing, screaming, and fighting. at 3 am. Call the front desk and they... More

When I checked in, I was never informed there was major construction going on. When I got to my floor, I was literally the ONLY room with a door on the hinges. I had to lift my bag up off the ground because there was so much construction debris it couldn't roll on the ground. I complained to the front... More
