I have been staying here for the past month and a half and it is great. The location in good. The area is safe. They offer a good breakfast every morning with hot and cold items on the menu. They also have a social get together for guest to gather and the Sonesta provides a great spread of hot and cold food items for the guest to enjoy free of charge every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening. The rooms are comfortable, spacious, and clean. There is a nice pool area and basketball court which is in a very nice court yard. Overall the Sonesta ES Suites in Columbia, Md is a great place to stay for a short or extended stay. I can not end this review without recognizing the great and dedicated staff that go above and beyond to ensure your stay is great. Jasmine is a wonderful and hard working employee. She is truly an asset to the Sonesta. I wish I had taken the time to get all of the staffs names before I started this review, as they all truly deserve to be recognized for their excellence in service. So, should the Sonest ES Suites in Columbia Md, be one of your options as a place to stay, take it from me and check in, you'll love it.
