We stayed at this hotel in the past as it is next door to Liberty Tavern, an old warehouse type building with good food and spirits. The hotel is clean with nice modern rooms and friendly attentive staff. For us it is about location in the downtown area when we stay for the night. Parking is $12. plus tax which... More

We had to skip a tour of the Biltmore Estate because we got into Asheville too late so we decided to continue to Columbia. This hotel is in the historic district and there are a huge number of places to walk to for drinks or dinner. The staff was very nice. The room very comfortable, clean, and well appointed. It...

Could tell there was some age on the facility and the A/C made noise that disturbed sleep somewhat.The location was the best in Columbia. Very convenient to everything.Exterior very well blended into surrounding builkdings. Looks more like a higher quality hotel.

We always stay at this Hampton Inn when we come to Columbia. My USC son can walk to the hotel, go to dinner and lunch. They have a good breakfast and very comfortable beds and rooms with very clean bathrooms.

The staff and management where so welcoming and enjoyable. Great rooms and you can't beat the location. Only place to stay when in Columbia. I asked for help with places to watch the games and eat and the ladies up front knew the best spots. It was also an easy walk to the shuttles for the football game.

This was a nice hotel with an excellent staff. The location was perfect for nightlife as well. Plenty of things to do within walking distance. There was even a really fun piano bar right up the street.
