“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2011

We spent the night here while driving to FL. Room was very nice and clean to include the bathroom. Staff was helpful with the check-in and restaurant recommendations. Breakfast was good, but nothing special...pretty much the standard chain-hotel breakfast buffet fare. Nice workout room!

Our staff makes each guests stay an enjoyable one during the time they are in house. Marriott strives to make their hotel the standout in customer service and it truly shows that the TownePlace Suites has shown our guests this upon arrival at the hotel. Each guests room is well kept and our staff goes beyond to make it very clean during your stay.The complimentary breakfast does give our guests a variety of items to select from and we are happy that you expressed your concern about serving the same items as other hotels. Effective November 1 our hotel has changed the food selection to better serve our guests.

The staff and I would I to thank you for staying with our hotel and if you are traveling in our area in the near future, please allow us to make your reservations at the TPS.

Have a great day.

I come to Columbia to visit my daughter at USC and always try to book at this location first because I feel very safe here. The staff gets to know you and they are friendly and very professional. The building still holds a new look to it and the room has everything I need. It is off Rt. 77 which is perfect for me and close to some larger store shopping stores such as Target and Walmart. To stay here you need a car since it is located approximately 10 minutes from downtown Columbia and in a busy commercial area but parking is free as opposed to hotels downtown. Driving is also required to go out to dinner since there are no good restaurants in the area. However, you can't beat the price for all that it offers.

Stayed here for one night with husband and teenage son. Chose this because of the separate living area with sleep sofa. Spotlessly clean, roomy and worked well for us. The sleep sofa was very small, a twin, I guess. Full kitchen which we didn't need, but if you're a business traveler staying for awhile, it would be great. I have to say that although the furnishings were new and everything was clean, it was one of the ugliest rooms I've ever stayed in. Felt like I was living in a circus tent or something. Just not my taste, but for one night, it was fine.
Nice complimentary breakfast in the morning.

I would like anyone that is going to stay in Columbia S,C to know this TownePlace Suites off E Exchange Blvd is wonderful. I travel for a living and would not stay anywhere else. I also bring my family. The kids love the pool and basketball court. Breakfast is great with many choices. Very "clean" modern hotel. Upscale for the average price......I have set many stays with Mary who is so pleasent and accomidating.

Went for nephew's graduation from boot camp. The hotel was spotless, the staff was very friendly and helpful with ideas of things to do and directions to get everywhere. The pool was delightful and breakfast very good. The coffee was some of the best I have ever had. I would highly recommend it and will stay there whenever I am in the area again. I am very picky about where I stay but this truly was one of the best.
