This was my first and only visit to Columbia. A business associate secured this hotel for us. It was great. It is located in an old bank building which was interesting. Valet and check in were super easy and courteous. Rooms were decent size. Loved the old hardwood floors. Really added to the character and nice to stay in something... More

I was in South Carolina for an emergency and I needed a place to stay in a pinch. I used my favorite app to secure a hotel, 3.5 stars, which was the highest rated in Columbia at the time, perhaps in general. I showed up at the hotel at 4 am, which probably affected my initial impression. The hotel was... More

Roof top Bar is small. Latin Festival is must do if you are Puerto Rican. It was all gear around Puerto Rico awesome for us since... More

This hotel definitely wins points for being historic and well placed in the city. Hardwood floors, modern bathrooms, and an in-house café that serves Starbucks make it a great place to stay. The main reason this place gets high marks from me though is for its service. Everyone is willing to go out of their way to accommodate you. But... More

I walked in the lobby of this hotel last summer and decided that this hotel would be my go-to for future once-a-month visits to Columbia. I was pretty excited about the room I had (size and style is similar to historic NYC boutique hotels). But my room was SO LOUD. First there was a man having a sneezing fit in... More

This hotel reminds me of the young person that "has so much potential" but just does not care to make the effort. The it has a great location, nice furnishings, upgraded linens but fails to maintain the rooms to the same level you would expect. For example In our room we found some very obvious mold right above the front... More

This hotel is classically designed. It was transformed from a bank, saying that make sure to check out the roof top lounge and the vault lounge. I had a dirty martini and the bartender went upstairs grabbed some blue cheese and large olives and stuffed them. Deliciously done as this was my first time experiencing that. The room was small...

Working along Main street, I have frequented the Sheraton on numerous occasions to enjoy evenings out at the roof top and have always had a great time. Recently I was stayed at the Sheraton and was a guest at their Club Lounge where my husband and I were waited on by a gentleman by the name of Cedric. I am... More

Upon arrival the tone was definitely set for the relaxing and fun weekend I planned for my boyfriend and I. The hotel was immaculate with a lot of warmth and character. The staff was extremely courteous and professional. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The location was within walking distance of entertainment and restaurants which made our stay all...

I've stayed at the Sheraton Columbia Downtown Hotel on numerous occasions, and plan to return next time I'm in town. The staff is friendly and helpful - always ready with a warm greeting. Cedric, the major domo for the Priority Club, is the king of Southern Hospitality and has great recommendations for dining downtown. The food at POSH, the mezzanine... More
