Great experience. Hotel staff was friendly. My personal per peeve is not having enough power outlets in the room, but this was not a problem here. Breakfast was self serve but clean, organized, and very complete.

Close to all the things you would like to walk and visit. Was not told I would have to pay $13.00/day to park in the hampton parking lot. (I did not see any thing different from any other parking lot!)

The hotel was in pristine condition. The lobby was smartly decorated and very clean. The rooms were also very clean and the room had no physical issues. Hotel seems very well maintained. Great location, very close to a lot of food and nightlife.

We have stayed here annually for business for many years. We like the historic building, friendly staff, on site parking, breakfast, and nearby restaurants. It is also about 3 miles to the fairgrounds where our meetings were being held.

I stayed at the Hampton Inn Downtown while on business in Columbia. The location of the hotel is very convenient. Right on downtown, it's close to everything, and that includes bars, restaurants and shopping. The hotel offers secure parking for guests driving. The room was very clean and spacious for a business type of hotel. The shower was great. One...

The second room was very nice, the first room bathroom was nasty. There was body hair dried to the shower wall which indicates there was not a check done on that bathroom. I was utterly disgusted by this.

While visiting the hotel on a trip to South Carolina I had a good experience. The staff had great manners and the room itself was very adequate. I would definitely go again sometime if I ever decide to visit South Carolina again.

This hotel is updated, clean and modern. The rooms are small (think a little bigger than Europe, but not average America) but the space is all well laid out, you don't feel cramped, even with 2 in the room. The free breakfast leaves much to be desired. It's refreshing to see hotels with healthier options, but this is not the...

From the time we walked in the doors we were met with great friendly service. The hotel from the lobby to the guest rooms was clean, and we couldn't of asked for a better location. It is blocks away from numerous great places to eat and drink, and minutes from the museums and shopping.
