We were there for a wedding. The wedding and reception were in the ballroom at the hotel. I would recommend this space for any occasion. Elegant enough for a formal event yet still has a very cozy feel. The rooms are loaded with modern amenities including black out curtains that are controlled by a switch next to the beds. This is not a “cookie cutter” hotel. The building has lots of character in the architecture which adds to the best view of Columbia. The staff did an amazing job taking care of the wedding party and family members of the bride and groom.
