“Great Location - Great Hotel!”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

I visited for business, but I definitely would come here to enjoy the sites of Columbia downtown! What a great value in this location....new, clean, beautiful hotel, plenty of free parking, and within walking distance to SO MUCH! This is definitely the place to stay if coming to downtown Columbia...oh, and the wonderful breakfast and nice exercise room helps too.. . . I'm a Marriott Platinum member, and this is one of my favorite hotels of all the many Springhill Suites I've visited.. . . .

Stayed overnight on the way to FL. Hotel looks new. If not then just redone. Clean, shiny and very well kept. Big modern room. Everything worked perfectly. Comfortable bed, very clean room. Breakfast buffet (included in our price) also excellent-both healthy (cereal, yoghurt etc) and "classic" (sausage, eggs, bagels, muffins). Ample easy parking. Near major highways and near downtown. Walkable to a dozen lovely restaurants and bars. Near the sights (museums, stately homes). The town itself is friendly and charming and this hotel was delightful. We will be back.

I stayed here one night for business. It was conveniently located to restaurants in The Vista. From there I could also walk to the State Capitol and USC campus. It was very well kept (seemed almost new) and clean. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room was well laid out and very comfortable.

I was very, very surprised! The room was extremely modern and comfortable, the hotel decor was top-notch, and the whole experience had a very "upscale boutique" feel to it. A particular shout-out to the service, which was uniformly excellent.

Room Tip: We were next to an elevator, and not far from the ice maker, but never heard a sound. A really well...

The employees at this location were top notch! We used our marriott rewards to book our room, and figured we'd get a bottom-barrel room. Not so! We had a fantastic room with a groovy sectional sofa/pullout couch, comfortable king bed, and a beautiful, modern & sleek bathroom. Highly recommend, and you can easily walk to area restaurants located in the Vista area.

Room Tip: We stayed in a king/with pullout sofa. Excellent and PLENTY of room!

We were in Columbia for a weekend getaway with family and friends and thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Springhill Suites. It has a great location, a friendly staff, and is very clean. Nice up-to-date decor. Within walking distance to may restaurants. The sofa ned was horrible, butthat's probably to be expected anywaere. All in all it was perfect for our leisurely weekend.

Very nice updated hotel. Near downtown especially the University of SC. Love the microwave and mini fridge in the room. Beds are comfortable. clean rooms and bathrooms. Wish there were locks on the bathroom doors (sliding pocket doors). Modern decor. Free Breakfast included was good. From check in to breakfast Svc was excellent - Brittany during breakfast went out of her way to get me more ham and cheese that ran out on the second day. Front desk was prompt in getting us more towels and shampoo when we asked for it. Smooth superb great stay!!! Recommend highly to stay here.
