This is my third stay here. We have a dance competition right next door every February. Great location and staff. Quick check in and out. The cookies are delicious they sit out about 3:00 everyday. The breakfast is very good.

This hotel is close to everything and couldn't be nicer. Everyone is very professional and helpful. Hampton always has quality breakfast and the 24 hour coffee is to die for! Loved the stay. I always love this location when I'm in Columbia.

Hampton Inn is very nice. Great location. Near shopping, USC, restaurants, bars and attractions. Everyone is very nice. Needs shower caps in bathrooms and ice tea with the lobby coffee. Parking is convenient. Room is very nice and spacious.

In the heart of the Vista/Downtown District. Walking distance to fabulous restaurants and the convention center. The breakfast features good selections of proteins and low cal options. For the indulgent you have Krispy Kreme donuts as a part of the danish options. Neat and clean rooms.

There is a hotel located across the street from the convention center that is actually further away than this Hampton Inn. This is on the same side of the street, closer, less expensive, and offers the complimentary breakfast. You can't beat this quality hotel.
