Excellent stay at the Residence Inn Irmo outside of Columbia. I recently stayed at this hotel and loved it. It opened within the last six months and it shows. Some parts of this building still smell of new construction. T
The eating area was quite large. There is no on-site restaurant but there is a cocktail reception with great food. The night I was there it was pasta, salad, texas toast, and warm brownies. There are several draft beer selections and other beverages. I had a Yeungling and a warm brownie. I went to dinner elsewhere because I don't like alfredo sauce. If it was red sauce I would have just stayed in. This is the same area for breakfast which was also a slam dunk. Everything was fresh and tasty. I got some eggs and canadian bacon with a few other items to round out my plate.
The room had a tv that swivels almost 360 degrees. There were lots of outlets by the bed and desk and throughout the room. It's a standard Residence Inn layout but new amenities. The color choices on the couch and walls are something I haven't seen in a Residence Inn yet. The room was quite, clean, and AC worked great. The laundry room has about 8 machines for the DIY guy. That was nice. The staff was great. I had no change on me to do my laundry but they let me cash out the quarters on my bill. Only one other hotel has done that before and most will give you a hard time. I appreciated it. T
The downside is there is some construction outside. I was there during the day and the windows are pretty tight so I couldn't hear it. They said it's going to be a restaurant so once that's done it should be good. The building right next to it are office plazas so it's quiet at night. Easy to get on/off interstate and I thought it was easy to get into Columbia. Parking will probably be bad once that restaurant is built because you can't park 360 around the hotel. For now it's a 5 star.
