My sisters and I, all of whom matriculated at USC, stayed in a suite at the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites the weekend before Thanksgiving, so we thought it wouldn't be crowded, We didn't realize that the Gamecocks had a home game, and there was limited availability because the away team had several buses (and presumably lots of fans). Ack! We inadvertently broached enemy territory! Nonetheless, the hotel was quiet, and we had no problems with noise or unruly, misguided South Alabama fans.
The suite was spacious and the television channel selection was excellent. The bath had a jacuzzi but the bathtub area could haven been cleaner (mould) and the towels weren't quite plush.
Northeast Columbia is not a "happenin' place" but it would have been nice if there were some sort of visible nightlife in the hotel itself. Also, we would have ordered room service or eaten in the restaurant, but the menu wasn't appealing.
All in all, it was good value for the room, but the amenities were lacking.
