Thanks for the wonderful stay. The hotel itself was classy, clean and restful with a wonderful staff. The next time we are in Columbia, the Hilton will be our place of residency. What we needed in restaurants were very convenient and most within walking distance.

Room was so humid even with A/C it fogged windows and wilted papers in the room. Shower floor cracked loudly when stepping on. Missing bath tile. Hot water scalded hands within a second of turning on. Late housekeeping one day (after 3 PM). No bath mat provided after first day. Given room with adjoining door and noisy kids next door. No channel guide for satellite TV.

The staff at check in were very professional and attentive. The service was great. The location was in walking distance of restaurants and shops. Would stay at Hilton Columbia Center in South Carolina again if I am in the area.

The hotel even offers you free unbrellas to use if rainy if you are walking anywhere. It rained almost every day we were there but we still had a great stay

Everything was nice and what you would expect - except for that the bathroom in our "smoke-free" room STANK of cigarette/cigar smoke. The room was in sore need of a long overdue vacuuming. Otherwise, amenities are what you'd expect for a Hilton, but BE WARNED: They charge for parking, $12 a day! And breakfast isn't complimentary! And the internet wasn't fantastic - slow at times and occasionally dropped all together. They have satellite TV, and since it rained the whole time we were there - guess how THAT worked out!? The only positive thing I can say is that the staff was very professional.

The service was good. The bell hop and valet greeted me with extreme friendliness and made me feel very comfortable immediately. The coffee and hot tea in the hall was a nice touch in silver pots with four stacks of newspapers nearby and well appointed lobby. The room was very comfortable and the meeting rooms and restaurant good. The only really annoying thing was that if you forgot your breakfast voucher, you had to go back and get it or pay full price and they made me wait even though in a hurry to catch a bus, to be seated even though my friend was already in there. I did not care for water or coffee so waiting for the server was not necessary. The pool was nice and so were the meeting rooms and parking. ALso the room key had to be renewed every day as we got locked out of the hotel. The connected garage is a nice touch on the second floor.

Excellent location, near everything upscale in the city. Staff was incredible, The house coffee in the lobby is actually the best! Ruth Chris is there in-house, so if you like there steaks there you go, LongHorn's however is a block away. Great place with great staff. Close to the arena and you will get a good night's sleep!!
