“"Worth every penny spent"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

The accommodations were very comfortable. The suite was spacious, clean, and well organized. In my experience, if the first encounter is positive, my stay is positive and I am happy to report the front desk staff has proven my theory correct. They were very receptive and courteous. The hotel location was convenient and easy to access from the parkway. I recommend Sonesta ES Suites Columbia to anyone that may need some "me" time or "we" time.

Room Tip: May consider the 2nd floor only to avoid seeing others walking past the windows (although no bother...

I have been staying here for the past month and a half and it is great. The location in good. The area is safe. They offer a good breakfast every morning with hot and cold items on the menu. They also have a social get together for guest to gather and the Sonesta provides a great spread of hot and cold food items for the guest to enjoy free of charge every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening. The rooms are comfortable, spacious, and clean. There is a nice pool area and basketball court which is in a very nice court yard. Overall the Sonesta ES Suites in Columbia, Md is a great place to stay for a short or extended stay. I can not end this review without recognizing the great and dedicated staff that go above and beyond to ensure your stay is great. Jasmine is a wonderful and hard working employee. She is truly an asset to the Sonesta. I wish I had taken the time to get all of the staffs names before I started this review, as they all truly deserve to be recognized for their excellence in service. So, should the Sonest ES Suites in Columbia Md, be one of your options as a place to stay, take it from me and check in, you'll love it.

Room Tip: Rooms on the east inside of the building have a great view of the courtyard.

This hotel caters for long stay guests working for companies and also for shorter visits. I have frequented a number of times and it never fails to disappoint. A two bedroom suite has two en-suite bathrooms (at least ours did) and the living space was generous, with a pull out sofa bed too. The bed in the bedroom was huge and very comfy. Breakfast was extensive and available everyday, hot and cold food available and included in the room rate. Towels changed regularly and maid service everyday. Dinner three evenings a week is also included, is basic, but sufficient. The garden and pool area are fab with an outdoor grill for guest use. The gym is not huge, but has the essentials. I am aware some rooms are smoking-permitted, if this is what you require. Absolutely recommend this hotel, very happy with the stay and will return.

We had reserved a queen studio and were upgraded to a two-bedroom suite. It was wonderful. The suite was very clean, comfortable and very attractively appointed. The hotel was quiet and the staff was very professional. Would very definitely stay there again.

The hotel is in a great location for Columbia, MD. However, the furniture, carpet and beds need to be replaced due to just general wear and tear.
Nice size living room and kitchenette. The breakfast served each morning was good.

Stayed at the Sonesta ES Suites in Columbia MD after using Hotwire and got a rate under $100. I never heard of this place but it is a former Staybridge Suite Hotel. Room was clean, bed comfortable, shower worked great. Also the price included free hot breakfast which was good and free wifi Internet . Only gripe was older style tube TV, no flat screen in my room.
