“Very nice, unusual hotel in a natural setting, but thin walls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2009

This was a very nice, unusual hotel. We stayed in the lodge part of the hotel, and the room was very large, nicely appointed, and looked out onto a very nice natural scene, overlooking a wooded area and a lake. We checked in early and when there were few other guests in our wing, the room had a very nice, natural atmosphere. The problem came when other guests checked in, the hotel walls are VERY thin, in fact someone else's baby in another room woke me in the middle of the night, which is very unusual. Normally when a hotel is noisy it is noise from people slamming doors, or being noisy in the halls, I have never been woken by noise from someone elses room . If you have a stay here where you have no one adjoining you, you will probably have a good experience. Even with the thin walls, we enjoyed our stay, but with the thin walls the potential exists that you may not get a good night's sleep. I would reccomend the hotel to a friend but with a major caveat that if they are a light sleeper, they probably should stay elsewhere.

Sleek, modern 'new' lobby. Clean, comfortable, refreshed rooms. Excellent service from all of the hotel staff members. What a treat to stay at the Sheraton Columbia Town Centre.

The hotel is closer to Baltimore without all of the congestion. It has a very unique setting. It is nestled on a lake with a path leading to waterside bars and restaurants with a very festive atmosphere. The hotel was recently renovated and looks great! The fitness center was far superior to the run-of-the-mill gyms (closets) typically found in business hotels. I use to come here a few years ago and cannot believe the transformation. Kudos to whomever owns the place and invested the money to make it into a true gem!

1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2009

I had a really unpleasant experience here for a small business trip. The lady that checked me in was extremely rude for no apparent reason. I felt guilty for breathing. I was put in a room far from the main hotel, at the bottom of some stairs. They are renovating that there were about 6 contruction workers - all men - right there talking and laughing, but all watched me go in to my room, so they knew a single woman was staying there alone. That was unsettling. There were still there, just talking when I went to the gym and when I came back. They continued to loiter outside of my room chatting with the women that clean the rooms until about 11:00 at night, very loudly talking in another language. The room was small and walls were paper thin. I heard every single noise outside of my room, even if I turned the tv on to mussle the outside noise. I felt very vulnerable and scared. I have traveled for over 15 years alone for business and never once felt this way.

Also, the hotel is FAR from being renovated. It is annoying that they don't close certain areas where contruction is going on. You get no sleep...constant drilling and workers yelling.

I would like to thank Ms. Tobin and a gentleman named Vernon who work in guest services at the hotel. We were disappointed on our arrival, by the intrusion of the renovations in progress, we couldn't find our room, or get ice. They were very accommodating and went out of their way to make sure we had a great stay. And we did. Thank you so much.

Had a last minute trip to the Laurel, MD area, booked online directly through sheraton - room was $153+tax, offered 2 free breakfast buffet, and late check out., and bottle of wine. But when checking, front desk didn't offer any of the package, again it was late/early in the morning (1am) went to front desk for free buffet tickets - not an issue.
Room was ok- Nice big flat screen. Very noisy-can hear everything in the hallways

I stayed at this hotel last year while it was being remodeled. It was noisy and messy. NOW however it is like a new hotel. Great fitness room, rooms clean and bed was great. Bar is integral part of hotel. Food is OK in restaurant. All in all a very nice hotel...Our convention was here and the Saturday dinner was very very good. meeting rooms were nice too.
