A good property with a convenient location but in need of a major upgrading of the rooms. Among Marriott properties, this one badly needs a refresh to be acceptable. The concierge lounge could certainly use some upgrading also.

We were in town for a wedding. This hotel was average. The staff wasn't rude but they weren't super friendly either. The hotel is kinda old. The water in the shower was never constant. The pillows and bed are pretty comfy and clean. The location was a little far from the night action. We wanted to be closer to the... More

Awesome hotel!.. a very well-managed property would highly recommend anyone stay here front desk staff and concierge staff are awesome. Easy access to just about everything downtown Columbia. Parking garage is owned by the city and it's a little different but you get used to it.

I stayed at this hotel last month for business and it was during the Latin Festival. The staff was very professional and the food in the lobby restaurant was amazing (Shrimp & Grits and the pulled pork sandwich the best). Shops and restaurants are within walking distant. It's in the heart of downtown Columbia. The rooms were clean and the... More

Hotel is perfectly located for a weekend getaway. Park the car in the garage and walk to local film or live theaters, art galleries, restaurant and Soda City market on Saturday mornings. Breakfast buffet is second to none.

After staying at a Marriott Resort & Spa, this hotel was a let down. However, the location was superb for everything that I wanted to do. Drove up from Atlanta to attend an SOS Band and Freddie Jackson concert at Township Auditorium -- less than four miles away. Who knew it was Gay Pride weekend and all the festivities were... More

The Columbia SC Marriott is very nice. The amenities were clean and well stocked with natural soaps and lotions. The beds and pillows are so comfy. The pool looked amazing however we did not get to swim. It is located in a central portion of town. We walked to dinner and a festival was right outside. The best part of... More
