This hotel has a beautiful lobby / lounging area that has the warmth and charm of the South. A nice breakfast buffet in the lobby restaurant - Ruth's Chris. Ideally located near Gervais Street, which provides lots of choices for meals or drinks. The hotel is also close to the museum. Rates are pretty high ($200+) but we wanted a... More

The Monday/Tuesday June 18/19 my coworkers and I were in Columbia on business. We checked into the Hilton on Senate Street without issue. I did look for signs of bedbugs when we arrived - pulled the mattress cover back in the corners and the mattress looked clean, so I went on about my business. We were back in our rooms... More

The saving graces of this hotel are its location and staff. The only way that you could beat the location of this hotel would be to stay at the Hampton Inn, which we now wish we would have done. When we first checked in, the room stunk. We learned that this was a doggie room on a lower floor. We... More

My travel accommodations were decided for me by the on-site conference selction, but arrival and the two-night mid-week visit proved to be very pleasant and comfortable. The #1 highlight was the close walking proximity to downtown restaurants and gathering spots to enjoy post-conference get-togethers. The front desk staff was extremely helpful but a bit short-handed at check in during a... More

Hampton has a much better location. Service at this Hilton was not good. Hotel was not as clean as others. No clean towels in pool area. Dirty dishes in front of room upon arrival. Breakfast was not included. Over priced.

Needed to stay at a hotel close to USC campus and after reading several hotel reviews on TripAdvisor, I decided on Hilton Columbia Center. I was not disappointed. The rooms were very clean, the beds were comfortable, the adjacent parking garage was attached to the hotel, and best of all was the service. Just note that the breakfast wasn't complimentary....

I don't know where to begin here... All the staff, from the front desk employees to the bartenders at Ruth's Chris are all excellent.
