This hotel is conveniently located by the Columbia Mall, with lots of shopping and dining choices nearby. (As for dining, I highly recommend the Flat Branch Pub & Brewery - see my review on that!) They are currently doing some road construction on the main road by the hotel, but nothing that caused any accessibility issues to the hotel. When I checked in I was dismayed to learn something went awry with my corporate travel booking and I was apparently booked for two double beds instead of my customary king. The staff changed my room with no problems and seemed happy to accommodate my request. That really wowed me right there. The rooms themselves are nicely apportioned with a fridge, flat panel tv, dresser, desk and armchair with ottoman. The doors to the rooms are a little dated but lock securely so that wasn't an issue for me. The gym is large and nicely apportioned with a variety of workout equipment, including CrossFit style items! There are washing machines on site as well. This was a business trip so I didn't get a chance to check out the pools. There are two restaurants on site, which I didn't get a chance to check out but it's nice to have options. When I had to request an item for my room it was promptly brought to me. The front desk was helpful on dinner recommendations as well. It doesn't appear that breakfast is included if that is a concern of any one. I received a call from the manager every day to ensure my stay was going well and that I didn't need anything (I am a Priority Club member so not sure if that had anything to do with it). Overall I feel like the value is worth the price of the hotel, and I will stay here again when business brings me back to Columbia.
