“Its a wanna-be trendy hotel, but just ends up being COLD.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2010

The hotel is new, they tried a trendy up-scare design, but they just cant pull it off. The lobby has large curtains which seemed like more of what you would expect in a little girls bed-room. The rooms are small, very cold and very uncomfortable. The staff while not rude, are as cold as the surroundings (no smiles, very little talk). My rooms carpet was already stained in several places (an indicator that this place is just a few short years will be a dump). The beds are hard, pillows flat. I told them when I booked the hotel (through expedia) that I needed late checkout (4pm). I reconfirmed this when I checked in (everyone said fine). Suddently on the day of checkout my spouse gets a call in the room from the manager that there would be an additional charge. The hotel was empty - this charge was unnecessary- plus the un-smiling person who checked me in should have told me this (even though I reminded her of the late check out time). Finally this hotel is not in a great section of town. All in all a mistake.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2010

I am a very picky hotel guest - this was a perfect stay. The hotel is about a year old, but looks brand-spanking new. Check-in by Ryan was personable and professional. I appreciated being thanks for my loyalty to Marriott - as a gold elite member of their rewards program, I am disappointed when I am greeted with "Your rewards number is on file" whereas here I felt warmly welcomed. The lobby was attractive and inviting. My corner room, while technically not exactly a suite, was spacious and airy. I definitely appreciated the refrig and microwave, and I loved the separate toilet area with the tiniest sink I've ever seen, and the spacious shower room with a sink area large enough to spread out my toiletries. The shower pressure could have been better, but that's about my only nit. The bed was wonderfully comfortable and I got a great night's sleep.

I'm sure I'll be back!

The hotel is very nice with an excellent staff, but transportation to Baltimore & Washington D.C. is costly & difficult without a car. Jose Pintado, went above & beyond to resolve the issue & save our vacation from being uneventful. He transferred us to another Spring Hill Suites where the staff was just as wonderful as he was. Spring Hill Suites is on the top of my list for future trips. Thank you Jose, for being so caring & helpful.

This is one of the nicer rooms I've stayed in - definitely the nicest for under $100. The room is divided into the sleeping area with a king bed and a living room area with a small sectional sofa and a work desk. There was a mini-fridge and microwave as well as free wired and wireless internet. There was one 32" hi-def TV that could swivel to be scene in either part of the room. The complimentary breakfast consisted of cheese omelets, sausage, a waffle maker and various cereals and pastries. We did not use the smallish pool or fitness center.

After one very disappointing night at Columbia Hilton I cancelled the remainder of my booking there and spent 2 nights at the Springhill Suites. Recently built on modern lines it offers very clean, spacious and well-designed bedrooms, a friendly staff and good complimentary breakfast. Well located just off Route 32 it's ideal for shops, restaurants and trips into Baltimore and Washington. The only drawback was that the pool was closed for maintenance. Overall a very pleasant experience.

We stayed in room 106 for four nights. Hotel facility is new and interior design is more a modern kind of "trendy cold style". Bathroom and toilet uses pocket doors because there isn't room for a door to swing. Frosted glass door of shower spreads the light so much that it is hard to have one early bird without waking up the rest of the family. The same is true with the office desk light. The frosted glass lightens up the sleeping area if somebody needs to work late. During the four days, housekeeping made beds without changing sheets or cleaning the beds very well. They also did not replace the glasses, shampoo or soap. Even after reporting it to the front desk, it did not change. Breakfast was ok compared to many other hotels. Scrambled eggs were more like small pieces of M&Ms and containers for waffles had not enough dough to create a full waffle. I wish the breakfast would start earlier. 7am on a Saturday was not early enough. Now that the building is finished, it is time for the management to look at the details.
