“Hilton Garden Inn Restaurant Waitress”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

I'm very pleased to state my wife and I have been on vacation for the last 10 days. We found ourselves looking for a hotel in the Columbia, SC area this evening. Fortunately, we found a vacancy at the Hilton Garden Inn/Harbison in Columbia, SC.

After we checked into our room we went downstairs to have dinner. We had the great fortune of being waited on by a waitress by the name of CeCe. This lady was just excellent.

Regards,
Jim & Sharon

I would definitely Sugest to travelers who coming to this area to try this hotel very nice Clean and updated. But it all starts with the Friendly Staff at the Front Desk. even though the Lobby was a bit busy with the construction while I was checking in , I'm sure when this Place is finish it's going to loog Great. Wish my stay was longer than one night. i needed to be there like for a week

Even though there was some renovation work being done at the hotel, everything was clean and quiet. We are a family of four with two children ages 8 and 12. We enjoyed the pool/whirlpool and the exercise room. All of the equipment in the exercise room was up-to-date and working. The breakfast was super each morning! The food was cooked to order and the kids loved making their own waffles. The wait staff was friendly and prompt. Throughout our 4 night stay everyone was helpful and seemed happy to be there which is refreshing. A smile goes a long way! We will stay at this hotel from now on when visiting family in Columbia.

located in a very congested area. Hotel not well marked but once you are there, it is worth it. Great staff and rooms were very good. Good beds and bath. Rooms being renewed. Their staff let us know they will be # 1 in Columbia, now in top 3.

We were passing through on a road trip to TN. We were very impressed with this HGI. Location is great, right off the interstate, close to many nice restaurants and town center shopping. The main lobby was under construction during our stay but was still very nice. Rooms were clean, in great condition, great carpeting throughout the hotel. Front desk was very nice. Amazing hot breakfast (for additional cost $10). The breakfast staff was very friendly and helpful. Would stay at this hotel again and would recommend.

This is a very nice Hilton Garden Inn. The place looked great both inside and outside- even the carpeting was beautiful. The room was larger than expected and had everything you'd expect from a Hilton- clean room, comfortable beds, plush sheets and duvet, etc. And apparently a Keurig is standard in HGIs now- love it!

The staff was very friendly, especially the kitchen/dining room staff. The cook made excellent omelets and then checked with us to make sure we were satisfied. The ladies in the dining room were constantly checking on us and even offered us drinks to go!

We got a requested upgrade to our room and received a room with a jet bathtub- we all enjoyed this after many hours of driving.

We also purchased a bed and breakfast option- I recommend this if you are traveling as a family. The package was only $10 more than the cheapest option we found for this hotel on Tripadvisor. For that, my husband and I both got great, hot breakfasts (made-to-order omelets, bacon, potatoes, etc.) and the kids had fresh waffles, fresh fruit (good stuff like fresh blueberries, strawberries and pineapple), yogurt, cereal, oatmeal and breakfast breads. Worth way more than $10.

Room Tip: Request a room on a higher floor. The hotel is right off I-26 but we didn't hear a sound with a...

Was in town to visit and attend a Sheriff's party. The staff was friendly and helpful. Made us feel like family! Would stay there again next time we are in town! Breakfast buffet was excellent choices, the chef brought our made to order breakfasts out to our table personally! Really enjoyed getting to meet and know the employees there. Wish we could have stayed longer!
