The building is very beautiful. I like the atmosphere and style of the old buildings and this one is great. With the old buildings you tend to expect that some of the mechanicals may not always be 100% functional, but none of the window coverings worked, which was annoying. The floor had sticky spots, which was disconcerting. They were also... More

The building used to be a bank, and many original details have been kept. The Vault is a small restaurant and bar off the lobby -- inside the old vault. We had a standard king room, which included a small coffee/hot water maker. Plenty of storage space, and a very clean and well-stocked bathroom. The one downside was our room... More

Had the chance to stay here for a long weekend and it did not disappoint! Walking distance to all points of the city and a great little bar downstairs, not to mention the good restaurant and coffee on spot. The room was nice and updated, even had a TV in the bathroom. Beds were comfy and soft and there were... More

I was looking forward to staying in such an old building, and as far as historic building goes, it didn't disappoint. From the wooden floors, to the styling and even the giant vault door downstairs, but about the highlight. I flew in late and was keen to get some sleep. The walls were like paper, I could hear the neighboring... More

I was in town for a comedy show and stayed overnight at this hotel. The staff was friendly but the check in process was not exactly speedy. The room was small (but this was expected because of the location and age of the building). However, it was very clean and the bed was exceptionally comfortable. The room had the original... More

I arrived at about 3:30pm. The valet was nowhere to be seen for about 5 minutes. As I was unpacking my car, the valet asked me my room number...I was going to check in, how would I know this information? I get to the front desk and I have a trainee with very little personality checking me in. He gives... More

The hotel is ok. Rooms were clean and the building is old with original wood floors in the rooms. The hotel is in a very good location, with just a 2 block walk to the capital building and 4 blocks to the Vista area. The staff were all very nice. However, the cable went down at 6pm and did not...

More cozy than cramped so that was nice. It was enough space for two. The bathroom was very clean and so was the room. My only complaint would be the bed. Even just going to sit on it or any type of movement caused the bed to make a loud sound, kind of like if you were to shake sheet... More

We were in Columbia to attend an event downtown and needed a place to stay. Given this was Christmas week, things were a little quiet. Check-in and check-out were quick and efficient. The rooftop bar was still open when we arrived since it was a nice day, but we did not spend much time there because we wanted to head... More

We stayed New Year's Eve to prevent having to drive home after the festivities. We booked a room on the Club Level - 1507 - which included complimentary hors d'oeuvres and breakfast buffet New Years day. The Club Room on the 16th floor was being renovated so they moved the events to the Posh cafe/lounge on the Mezzanine. Following check-in... More
