Pleasantly surprised by the Courtyard Columbia. Front desk staff was very friendly. We had a nice 2 queen bedroom for 4 adults while my dad was having heart surgery at Providence Hospital. Convenient downtown location, however there was often a train whistling late at night and early in the morning. I don't mind a bit of noise, but if you are sensitive, this might be a problem for you. We didn't hear any noise from inside the hotel - just the trains going by.
Room was clean and spacious for 4 adults. Bathroom was standard, but nice. Paul Mitchell bath products were appreciated and used. The parking deck was VERY tight. I have a Honda CR-V so it wasn't a huge problem. If we'd had my husband's truck it would have been too difficult, if not impossible to use the deck and we would have had to use their outdoor parking spaces.
Didn't eat anything at the hotel, but Wendy's and California Dreamin were very close. Also close was the Mellow Mushroom (great pizza), Jason's Deli and other restaurants.
If you're in town for anything at USC, this is a fantastic location.
