When I checked my bank account later in the day they charged my card $250.00. The room/ breakfast was nothing special. What...

This Hampton Inn is only a few blocks from the SC Capitol. There is a Starbucks across the street and numerous bars and restaurants within steps. You will have plenty of dining options nearby. I have stayed here several times and always found the property clean and the staff helpful and professional.

Very gracious and courteous staff. Clean, accomodating and enjoyable. Very much recommend this as your "first and only" choice when visiting Columbia, SC. In town for family to see USC Gamecocks basketball game. As alumni, we were able to walk to Colonial Life Arena and dine close to the hotel.

great location, safe and private parking, walkable to restaurants and other shops and entertainment. Quiet for a downtown hotel. Nicely decorated. Like the "happy hour" in the afternoon! Friendly staff and rooms have recently been re-done so very clean and new feeling.

rooms are well appointed and clean, however duvets are far too heavy to be utilized in Columbia and our room had only one blanket for two beds. Thus the title of the review, check the closet for blanket or (or in our case)blankets unless you want to call the desk in middle of night.
