My husband and I were delighted with every aspect of our stay at the Sheraton Columbia. The 100-year-old former bank building is absolutely charming! Our suite was comfortable and sunny with large windows, hardwood floors, and 3 televisions! The food in the club lounge was very good, but the service from Cedric was outstanding. He is an ambassador for Charleston... More

We stayed just one night and wish it could have been more! The service was great, the rooftop bar was so much fun ( forgot to go down to the vault!). Bed was comfortable and they even offered to bring in a small refrigerator for us! The bathroom had a flat screen TV in it, I think a first for... More

We have just spent 4 days at the Sheraton Hotel in Columbia. We travel every week with our jobs, 3 of us with 3 rooms, and always check in with a certain amount of skepticism. The Sheraton Hotel in Columbia exceeded every expectation. On check in we were given complimentary club lounge access, there is free wifi in all guest... More

This was a nice stay for one night. The room was quite small and there were a lot of creaky night noises, but it was to be expected as this is a redo of an old bank. Still, my stay was comfortable. The king bed was just right and except for one street drunk and the morning garbage trucks, I... More

Thank you for your response on Trip Advisor. We appreciate your feedback as a valued guest.

From checkin to morning breakfast everyone was accommodating in this comfortable and historic hotel. Charming restored old bank building is located in the heart of the city and within minutes of University of South Carolina. Great stay both times we have been in town!

This week marks the 9th week in a row that I've stayed at the Sheraton downtown and if you log into my SPG profile you'll see another 7 weeks of stays booked at least.

I enjoyed a delicious dinner at the Sheraton. Chef Drew Morgan is new to the hotel, but he has rejuvenated the menu. The food is fresh and the seafood is of top quality. The Sesame Encrusted Ahi Tuna is the best I have tasted (I even live in Charleston,SC). I travel to Columbia several times a week for business. I... More

It is gratifying to see historic downtown buildings such as the Palmetto Building here in Columbia, SC being repurposed. Kudos to Sheraton for making this happen. I did not eat at the restaurant nor visit the rooftop bar. We did visit the Vault Bar. As most businesses, it's about the people - their motivation and their training. The first person... More

I did not have the privilege of staying here, but I did enjoy the rooftop bar. We were out for a night on the town, and this was a must-stop. From what I saw, the common areas, bathrooms and the bar itself were very clean and had a nostalgic feel to them. The view of Columbia is probably unmatched, as... More
