“Beautiful new hotel in a city location.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

Fantastic hotel in a vibrant area. Restaurants and nightlife within blocks from the hotel. Spacious.lobby and breakfast area and they have a bar that is open in the evenings. The rooms have a unique bathroom layout. Shower and sink in one and the toilet and little sink in he other. Sliding doors on both. I liked the desk area with the sliding windows. Easy to do work and still see outside. The shower seemed to lack water pressure and the shower head didn't adjust properly from spray to pulsate. Emily at the front desk was very accommodating when I asked for a different room due to the top floor room I started with had the bathroom vents flapping with wind from the days' thunderstorm. Overall a great stay. And the gym was good too.

Room Tip: 439 is at the end of the hall. Quiet and a view of the theater.

I've stayed at this location at least 20 times in the past year. It is my go to hotel in Columbia.

It is centrally located to the city so you can get to any area within 20 minutes. Located downtown in the Vista, you have a choice of dozens of good restaurants within walking distance. There is also a grocery store within a block if you would rather have something back at the hotel.

The staff make this place shine. Holly and her team are top notch. Everyone has a smile and genuine willingness to make your stay great.

Breakfast is consistently good.

Bar service is friendly and accurate.

The only thing the hotel lacks is a hot tub. :-(

Room Tip: I have not had any issues with noise on the rooms that are street side, but I have heard some travel...

We stayed for one night on our way to Beech Mountain.
The hotel is spotless, the service was great and the rooms were fantastic. Everything was brand new, very modern and clean.
I'd definitely come back.

This is maybe my third or fourth time staying at this hotel, and I think I always stay here because I can always expect the same! The rooms are clean for the most part (except for the dirty fan next to the window, which made it hard for some in my group with allergies to sleep) and the breakfast is average. Although I've never walked around the area because this hotel is usually a stop over for me, it looks like the location is really convenient and there's even a Publix across the street. The sliding doors on the bathroom and shower room are a little unpleasant when staying with a couple people, but otherwise staying here is great.

This is a modern Springhill with nicely appointed rooms and lobby. Rooms are a good size, beds comfortable, everything was clean and staff was friendly. Location excellent as well - walking distance to everything in the Vista. Recommended.

What more does one need. Hotel is extremely clean. Beds are comfortable. Nice sheets and pillows. Great mattress. People are helpful with directions and restaurant ideas. The location is great as you can walk to dozens of great places as well as campus buildings. Who doesn't like a nice walk on a college campus anyway?
Hotel has a nice new breakfast set-up too. Lots of variety breads and cereals. Scrambled eggs and hard boiled eggs. Meats and cheeses. Juice and coffee. Just great. Great stay for both business and pleasure.

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.. . . .
