Only thing that standed out was the AC in the room was really loud and had a weird smell, othervise the hotel was pretty average hotel. Decent breakfest with omelet station. I would recommend to take the automatic AC off when you aree in the room as it woke me up few times during the night when it turned on. On the minus side, the room didn''t have decent ceiling light, only standard lamps, that had to switched on/off separately.

Room Tip: try to get room above the third level

This hotel is a home away from home. I have spent a lot of time here as I work in Columbia and live in Atlanta. The friendliest people on the planet. There is a high end, fabulous restaurant on site that has a waterfront view and great food. The tower is pretty and new with lake views, the Lodge has huge rooms with a suite feel with all the comforts of home. They have a following of regular business travellers. You can walk to Restaurants and shopping.

This is a decent, but well worn property with diminishing looks but with large, clean rooms and friendly and efficient service. Not at all worth the $219 rate in my opinion, but it was across the street from our business meeting, so it was worthwhile for us. Several of us had lower level rooms that we agreed felt 'humid' relative to the main floor and I would avoid that level if I went back there.

Summarily...Great Staff with Terrific Service and Attitude, but beyond that, no remarkable pros or cons.

Room Tip: Try to avoid the basement level rooms, it seemed humid down there to me.

Thank you for your input - really appreciate the comments about our Associates and will certainly pass it along. The hotel does have a Tower and Lodge section; the Lodge is a terrific area with quick access to the Fitness Center, Pool (in Season) and the recreational. I will not in your guest history that you prefer the Tower for any future visits. Again, thank you and we look forward to welcoming you back soon!

Columbia is a bland little place whose "town center" is a shopping mall. The Sheraton is fine, though it reflects the character of its location. The hotel consists of a tower and a 3 story wing of rooms along the town lake. Nice enough. We stayed there for a hockey tournament, so really had no choice of other accommodations. The staff was pleasant, food was OK (and some really good food choices are just a few steps away from the hotel.) Our room was clean, a little worn, but clean. I would ask yourself "do I really want/need to stay in Columbia?" If the answer is yes, than the Sheraton is a good choice.

We have stayed several times in this hotel in Columbia, MD where we go to visit with family. It is a very comfortable hotel with excellent service and a good restaurant overlooking the lake. Columbia is "New Town" with a picturesque location and several good restaurants. Hotel is less than a mile from our family's house so it is very convenient for us.

When I stay at a Sheraton, I do so because of the fact that it is a Sheraton. With that brand comes the expectation of a superb property, well maintained rooms, and an excellent staff. This property met a few of those criteria: the staff was very friendly and helpful, the location was decent, and I had a view of the river. The hotel itself, however, is pretty sub par as far as my expectations were concerned- the room was older, the bed just wasn't a Sheraton bed, the room had a funny smell (cats, maybe?). On the interior, it appeared to be more like a Holiday Inn. Overall, this was an OK place to stay, but I wouldn't go out of my way to return.

Room Tip: Ask for a water view!

This is an excellent property with a great staff. I would highly recommend this location except for one thing. The TV is horrible. I usually travel for work and stay at hotels for one to two weeks at a time. I like to watch some TV at the end of the day and I typically watch the number 1 highest rated network in the USA which for the past few years happens to be Univision. They offered the number two three four and fifth rated networks, however the network with the greatest number of viewers was nowhere to be seen. In fact there was no spanish language programming available at all. Although disappointing, I would probably return to this hotel because of the staff.

Room Tip: The corner rooms are larger and have a great view of the lake.

Thank you for your feedback - We have reached out to our cable provider and asked that they assist us with packages or the availiability of Spanish speaking stations. This is something we have been working on and assure you it will be resolved shortly. Thank You.
