I'd stay at this property anytime! The staff went above and betond to help in any way they could, succeeding in making this luxury hotel snob reconsider her stance on mid tiered properties. The tile in the bath was pristine! And the towel quality was more than acceptable. I checked out, and was waiting for my colleague in the lobby.... More

This was a mid / lower cost hotel option, relatively new, clean, with good service, and had free breakfast. There is not much else you could ask for from a hotel. It was also close to USC campus, try Thirsty Fellow for lunch or dinner, very good. I would choose this place again if traveling in the area.

I live in Columbia, SC and just wanted a weekend where I could enjoy my town like a tourist. I had a great time! First of all, school is on summer semester so currently there are no lines at restaurants, bars, etc. Even though the weather was above 100 we did walk to many places in the Vista. I love... More

This property is a newer one in downtown columbia. I stay here for my birthday every year, even though I live in Columbia. The staff is very nice and the hotel is very modern.

I am at this hotel currently and have one night left. We are staying here while visiting USC on a college visit. The location is great - the Vista area has tons of new, fun restaurants and most are walkable. The campus is only about a mile or two away; you still need to drive to the Visitor's Center or...

This hotel is in a great location that is an easy walking distance to many of the delicious restaurants in the Vista (we picked the M Vista -yum!).

We came to the Springhill Suites for a college visit with our son. The room was very spacious and clean. The beds were comfortable and I like the fact that the bathroom was split without the toilet being with the shower. The breakfast was adequate and they had a great little bar for happy hour.

We stayed one night at this hotel while visiting the University of South Carolina. The hotel was clean, attractive, and was close to several good restaurants. The pool was a nice feature. The room was clean, beds were comfortable, and the bathroom was great - loved the separation of the shower and two sinks. We would stay here again.
