Stayed here for two nights during my daughter's orientation at University of South Carolina. Overall I had an enjoyable stay, and the location was a easy walk to the campus. However, the building is older with dark hallways, elevators and lobby. The TV in the bathroom was nice, if not practical. The breakfast buffet was enjoyable and convenient.

We stayed at Sheraton when we went to visit Congaree NP. It is a nice hotel, mostly for business travelers. Room are clean, medium sized, with restored old wood floors. Staff are very good, always in good mood and helpful. Hotel lobby is different and interesting with a big bank vault.

The Sheraton Columbia's service keeps getting better and better, with a few minor adjustments, it could be top notch. The bar has been raised with Cedric in the club lounge. Cedric should teach classes to all of us in the service industry. Now, with the addition of Chef Rick, the food is delicious. Yes, they now charge 6.00 for wine... More

As a SPG Platinum guest that frequents SC (living in BC Canada) I was very please on my first stay here. I met Cedric in the once upstairs club lounge and was blown away by the service. I also received a suite upgrade. Since that stay I have returned 5-10 times and intend to continue. I always go visit Cedric,... More

I called to make a reservation and was quoted a price of $99 per night for two nights. I gave them my credit card number to hold the room and was cut off before I could complete the reservation. My confirmation came through by e-mail and it showed $378.00 total for the reservation and it said the total amount had... More

We were pleasantly surprised to come upon a quaint, though modern, gem of a hotel right in the middle of downtown Clumbia, SC. We loved our room! It was airy and had everything, very nicely laid out. Being on a Club floor enabled us to join the happy hour with the famous Cedric, our host. He is wonderful at his... More

Nice hotel.. almost boutique. Nice revamped bank. Repurposed bank with lovely hardwoods. Room was small but perfect for me. Television in bathroom for those long episodes. Dont waste money on valet or a parking deck. Plenty of free street parking after 5pm til 9am and weekends. Good location walking distant to good restaurants and within 1.5 miles from 5 points...

Having lived in Columbia and frequented the rooftop bar on top of this hotel many times I have always wanted to stay at this hotel. After finding a great deal online one day I decided to roll the dice and give this place a try. Well after checking in I learned that this hotel has no parking garage available what... More

Such a pretty building and love the history. We used SPG points and were able to get a suite. not huge or super fancy, but interesting and nice renovation that kept the character of the building and its history. Farmer's market was directly outside on Saturday morning.

Elegantly decorated and a comfortable place to stay. Within walking distance of many cool restaurants. Love the original hardwood floors in the rooms and the bed was amazing. Very friendly staff as well. Cannot wait for my next visit to Columbia because of this hotel!
