I really enjoyed my stay. It was a very reasonable price. The service was amazing. The breakfast was incredible. Everything in the room was laid out perfectly. Clean fresh linen, and great name brand bathroom products. I will be definitely recommending this hotel to friends and family. I enjoyed it so much I reserved another stay this Memorial weekend.

I'm a HHonors Diamond, stay at a LOT of Hamptons and HGIs, and was getting sick of trying to find a decent Hilton-brand hotel in Columbia, SC, where I travel several times a year. I refused to pay the absurd prices at the downtown Hampton, and have been trying every other hotel (Hilton, Embassy Suites, and another Hampton near downtown... More

Maybe not the closest location to town, but instead it is an area where there is plenty of shopping, restaurants and things to do. Close to a par 3 executive golf course and driving range, close to grocery stores and 5 minutes to Starbucks. An excellent place to stay on the outskirts of Columbia!

Stayed at this hotel when attending my nephew's college graduation at University of South Carolina. I agree with the many reviewers who state that the staff are very professional and well trained. Checkin was smooth. We were greeted with a smile and asked if we needed anything every time we walked by the desk. Things we needed were provided quickly... More

I was in Columbia on business and stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn for three weeks and must say that it was one of the best experiences I have had staying at a hotel. The hotel staff was very professional and friendly. I would highly recommend this hotel if your in Columbia on business or pleasure.
