“Great choice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

We spent five nights in this hotel, longer than I usually like to be away from my own bed. It was very nice. We brought our own pillows, but the bed itself was very comfortable. It was great having a thermostat to keep the room at a comfortable temp. Our trip was during a season that changed by the day. We used both AC and heat. It took a while to get the bathroom water to a good temperature, but it did eventually get comfortable.

Decor was fresh and contemporary. The room layout was a little odd. I would have enjoyed two separate rooms, instead of a small amount of separation, but it worked.

We did switch rooms after the first night from the street side to the parking lot side. There was a huge difference in the noise level. Huber Street is a multi-lane highway and it was noisy even on an upper level floor.

The breakfast was free, plentiful, and good.

The staff was courteous and helpful. Housekeeping was friendly and did a good job. They were local residents and not immigrants. Everyone that worked there spoke to us every time you met in the hall. They really were good ambassadors for "Southern Hospitality".

The location was convenient. Parking was free. It was easy to get around. Several restaurants were close by and excellent. A Publix grocery store was in walking distance.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the parking lot side. These are quieter. There is really no view in any directio...

This hotel is very nicely decorated in contemporary style. Very clean. Staff were extremely pleasant and attentive. Our A/C had a problem with a loud vibration. We called and someone was there to fix it within 5 minutes. Great location. It is near a lot of great restaurants and downtown activities.

Nice location, awesome price, free parking which is not the norm for downtown parking. Rooms were spacious with two beds and large pull out sofa. Loved the sep. shower and toilet areas and each room has min frig and microwave as well. Nice breakfast with standard fair of bagels, breads, cereal (hot and cold). Tea and coffee. Must say the coffee was awful. Great location I'm walking distance to Publix and downtown eateries. Fitness room is available as well.

Room Tip: Not a bad room option in the hotel.

Very nice, new and comfortable. Pleasant staff. Great location right near the Vista downtown Columbia. Within walking distance to restaurants and some shops. They have a full service bar with light snacks and the breakfast was adequate and fresh.

Nice place near downtown and USC. Adequate fitness room but nothing special. A bit pricier than most SH but I guess they get what the market bears. Good choice for Downtown or USC accommodations. I will stay here again next time in Columbia.

We've stayed at this hotel a few times while visting our sons at USC and have always been pleased. The common rooms and suites are kept clean and the entire property is well-maintained. The breakfast is good and has everything except for iced tea - it appears difficult to obtain this at most hotels. The hotel is in the Vista district and there is shopping, restaurants and lots of nightlife within a short walking distance.
