I had business meetings in Columbia and booked a stay at the Courtyard. The parking structure and lobby were clean and in nice condition. Upon check in my room had a distinct smell of mildew. I contacted the front desk. They were professional and courteous, providing me a new room quickly. Since my stay was for business, our corporate travel... More

The outside of the hotel doesn't do it justice. Once you get inside it is completely different. The lady who helped me check-in was courteous and helpful. Big smile! Got to my room and it was a corner room. Man, it was nice, clean, quiet and spacious. Had a drink at the bar at that night, the bartenders were both... More

I had to book a last minute reservation for a business trip in downtown Columbia, SC. The downtown Courtyard Marriott was available. As I parked and entered the reception area, I was pleasantly surprised by the warm greeting I received. Everyone upon arrival was extremely friendly and smiling.

This hotel is very nice and in a good location. The staff was very friendly and welcoming and the rooms were clean and comfortable. They offer a 24 hour Starbucks! The parking garage is convenient but very tight and narrow because of all the columns. The Internet was also very slow. However, everything else was very nice and I would... More

Stayed at this facility for one Friday night, so I'll admit my observations are based on little info. Parking is free and convenient. The decor is nice enough. The price was okay. There's a small but adequate bistro, and Starbucks is offered--all nice. But, about coffee, no creamer was provided in the room. Definitely a fault. They would do well... More

I have mobility challenges, and I welcomed the very convenient, covered, handicapped accessible parking on the ground level. The overall front desk staff performed superbly. I was also impressed with the lounge/lobby area with fireplace, the cafe/bar area, and the reception area. I was on the top floor which is the best floor for views of the University of South...

We stayed at this hotel because we were attending a function and other attendees were staying at this hotel. Where you unload your luggage and where luggage carts were was confusing with no one offering assistance. The parking garage is one of the worst I have ever been in.
