I stayed here for one night while on a business trip but I would recommend it for either personal or business travel. Great location in the middle of town and walking distance to several great dining options. I went for a run and went through an awesome park nearby down near the river. Highly recommend this hotel.

Excellent, first class experience all around at the Hilton in Columbia. Front desk staff went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. The room was spacious and clean, and the house keepers were very welcoming too! The pool was clean, and the restaurant is attached to a Ruth's Chris Steak House! Breakfast was great, and you can't beat their... More

location is great. right accross from awesome variety of food. Its also a good starting point to explore a nice corner of the city. The TV in the room was awesome. For a 3.5 star hotel, it has a hint of luxury. bathroom and rooms are pretty spacious

This was our third stay as our daughter has been enrolled at University of South Carolina. It's not inexpensive, but is conveniently located to campus and Gervais Street for dining. It is modern, clean and a good choice. I mentioned upon making the reservation that it was my wife's and my wedding anniversary weekend. We were surprised upon check-in by... More

Stayed at the Columbia Center Hilton with my daughter during her Orientation at USC. The hotel is located just off campus and near a local dining and entertainment center. Also just steps from the Capitol. Pool area is a nice little quiet oasis. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I left my IPad and they ensured it was mailed... More

I recently stayed at Hilton Downtown Columbia and everyone from the front desk clerk to the maintenance guy were overly helpful and friendly.

My wife and I were in town with our grandchildren. The staff was so helpful and friendly. They gave us suggestions of where we could carry the children to have some fun. The Children's Museum and Riverbanks Zoo were great. A visit to the historic Capitol building was informative also. With all the museums in the area, there was plenty... More

Going out on the town in Columbia? Particularly in The Vista, which is a more much more mature area than 5 points (which is more of a college party area), The Hilton serves as a great starting point. Park your car in their secure garage, walk through The Hilton Hallway from the garage and feel like a king. Have a... More

Recently stayed at the Hilton Columbia for a staycation to get away for a concert downtown. The room was clean, comfortable and met our expectations. The front desk and valet staff were friendly and accommodating. Although only for a night we felt right at home.
