Our reservations were made by our company for our training in which we had 400+ in attendance. with that being said, parking and check-in was a breeze. We were provided the breakfast buffet each morning and that was a real treat. There were lots of options and very delicious. Personal rooms were clean and maintained daily. Beds and linens were...

During my time this past week at Marriott, I truly say it's a great place to stay. The rooms were clean everyday and the beds were comfortable as well. The team worked well together and even showed a welcome spirit towards the 400 plus trainees that was there for business. My heart goes out to the young lady that kept... More

The hotel was a decent place to stay. The bed was comfortable. The first room we were given had a weird smell. I am not sure if it is was the smell of mildew or pets. However, my allergies became an issue after staying in that room for several minutes. The receptionist gave me a new room but no one... More

This hotel is in desperate need of a refresh. I've stayed on a few occasions and the staff are phenomenal, warm and welcoming. The club lounge is well stocked and great for early morning breakfasts. However the rooms are very dated and musty smelling. A renovation would well serve this dated gem.

This is a typical Marriott hotel, in the positive sense. Excellent location in central Columbia, SC. Generally, the hotels are not corporate owned, subject therefore to owner commitment (financial or otherwise). The personnel were friendly, perhaps excessively, making me a bit uncomfortable. We were guaranteed queen sized beds, but I believe they were two double beds. My wife discovered a... More

You would think that this would be a rundown hotel but so far from the truth. The room we were in was updated. It was a handicap room which was large enough with no problems with the bathroom or use of the wheelchair in the room. We were lucky enough to obtain adjoining rooms. We did have 2 engineering problems... More

The tops of the booths as you walk in on the left side of restuarant and the adjacent ledges above them are very dusty. A member in my party said they noticed it... More

Visited Columbia on business. Stayed one night at the Marriott. Beautiful hotel with a friendly staff. Right in the middle of downtown with free garage parking. Although I'm not crazy about garage parking, I loved the location, restaurants and coffee shops were in walking distance. Plus the hotel has a beautiful restaurant on the first floor. Once parked didn't have... More
