When you've stayed in a lot of Marriotts, you come to expect a level of consistency in terms of service, design, amenities, hotel furnishings, etc. The Columbia Marriott is conveniently located right near the a strip of downtown which makes it very easy to go for a walk and grab some dinner. The service is great - from the valet...

Stayed at the Marriott for a wedding earlier this month. The check in process was excellent and we had no problem with anything in the room. The bar area was very lively and all the bartenders did an excellent job. The only issue I had was not having a place available to park when checking in and having to pay...

I stayed at this property to get some "me time". I only stay 15 minutes away. The customer service was outstanding! I needed assistance with my television and even the engineer Tarik went above and beyond to assist me. I would also like to make special mention to Charlene at front desk who assisted me on my next stay. The...

This Hotel is very nice, but the staff is even nicer, including the manager. There is very little space to park in front, but there is a public parking garage that is connected to the building. The room furniture is a little dated, but the rooms are quite comfortable. There is a gym and a pool for your convenience. The...

The rooms were fine - clean and a good array of amenities (really liked the fridge). The one issue was noise coming from the hallway. The doors are not sealed adequately and you heard everything in the hallways. The housekeeper was extremely nice, especially when I went to take extra tea and coffee every morning!

Stayed here using points for a weekend while we were in town for a South Carolina football game. Glad I used points, because this hotel is just not worth what they try to charge to stay here. First off, the elevators were extremely dirty. I will say however the gentleman who checked us in was very friendly and helpful. We...

We only ate in the restaurant and the service was friendly, and the shrimp and grits were fantastic. The wedge salad has crispy bacon and chunky blue cheese. I thoroughly enjoyed our meal, but we did not stay overnight.

The downtown Marriott hotel is conveniently located in downtown Columbia. I found the hotel staff to be responsive and the facilities clean. Certainly, there are areas for improvement, but as a conference center, this place works great. My room was comfortable and provided a great view.
