A rather new and fresh hotel in Columbia downtown. Nice and friendly staff. Stayed in the corner suite with a nice view towards Senate and downtown. Good gym with good equipment. Internet was not very fast, but sufficient. There is a steakhouse on property, but I did not very it yet. Looks pricy, but perhaps worth try someday. The hotel... More

Stayed one night to attend Carrie Underwood concert. We thought check in was at 3 pm but it is not until 4pm. There were several groups waiting in the lobby and they added us to the list. We had 4 pm reservations at Ruth Chris and we were not happy having to figure out a plan b. After about 15... More

Room rates seem high for a small city like Columbia, and the Ruth's Chris Steakhouse as the only in-house eatery is definitely at the high end of the scale. No coffee shop or other moderately priced breakfast place in the building. My room was clean, but I expect all hotel rooms to be clean, so that's not special or justification... More

Hotel has clean comfortable rooms and very friendly staff. Hang out in spacious lobby. Reasonable price. Overall, best hotel in Columbia, SC...by far. Skip the Ruth Chris restaurant. Many other great restaurants within walking distance.

Great place for both business and pleasure. Electronic room selection is a nice convenience. The digital key is a wonderful little thing to have. Rooms are clean and spacious.

Stayed for a conference located at the adjoining property, so the location was great. Lots of great bars and restaurants in walking distance. The room decor is traditional, but the room was large and clean. The pool area was nice - quiet that time of the year (not quite warm enough, but used it anyway!).

The hotel is located downtown Columbia in the "vista". The rooms are great and I especially was impressed how quickly my room was cleaned daily. My only complaint is I left my little girls dress in the closet upon checkout and they said they didn't have it. It could not have disappeared in 24 hrs but hey I learned my... More

Satisfied with stay. Food was a little unsatisfactory, however. But overall the stay was pleasant and staff was extremely helpful. Our conference was located about a block away, so the location was excellent. Would probably stay here again.
