Came down to Columbia for my brother's wedding and had a great stay! Everything for the wedding was in walking distance which was fantastic, hotel has a great location. The hotel was very nice and recently refreshed and looked great. Any small issues we encountered were handled quickly and with no issues. Wonderful stay with great memories!

Great experience. Stayed here many times - mostly business, but also personal travel. The hotel has been updated recently and looks fabulous. Rooms were fine before - but now very modern, beds are great, electronics and internet first rate. Did not try the breakfast so I cannot comment there. Easy (pay) parking - close parking fills up fast but entire... More

I did not check in until a little after midnight. Tache (sorry about the spelling) was excellent and got us checked in pretty quickly. I had reserved a 2 queen room but we were put in a king study. It had a sleeper sofa and I was tired so I did not persist on this point. However, the pull out... More

Columbia SC may be famously hot but this this place is nothing but cool. Recent room upgrades really enhanced an already great option for lodging downtown. I would highly recommend to business travelers and anyone who needs a great place to stay for an weekend of exploring downtown.

Kudos to Brittany Beagley, who worked feverishly trying to help me check in to an additional room late on a Friday night special event weekend! Her work ethic was exceptional, but her kindness was even more remarkable. She is what Hampton Inn's 100% Guarantee is all about!

This is one of the nicest Hampton Inns you will find anywhere. It is in the middle of some of Columbia, SC best clubs and restaurants (literally walking distance, 1 to 2 blocks). Great food and good value for the money.

Did not know what to expect, but from conversations with others, this hotel beats the local Hilton hands down. Not only are the room rates cheaper, but breakfast and wi-fi are included, coffee all day, free cookies in the afternoon, and free alcohol from 6-7pm Mon-Thursday! Brilliant for conference access (60 seconds walk to the convention centre) and only 20... More

This is a very good place to stay while visiting Columbia. Distance to the airport is about 20 min drive, depending on traffic, bedrooms are large, WiFi is free (IPhone connection intermittent but netbook fine), great breakfast (included) and free coffee, fruit and cookies all day long! It is very convenient for the Convention Centre. However, it is not cheap!... More
