The expansive lobby is undergoing renovations, so that detracts from the ambiance (and closes the entrance on Main St). Also the garage is a good distance from the lobby elevators to the rooms. You have to walk from the garage and take a grand stairway (or elevator) to get to the lobby level where you find the other set of elevators to the room. On the upside, the adjacent garage has free parking on weekends.
The room was clean, neat, and well-appointed. My only complaint is the A/C was barely working. You could feel cold air coming out, but we dropped the thermostat down to 63 and noticed no difference at all. Had it been a warmer, more humid typical Columbia weekend, we certainly would have had to request another room.
