I spent a week in Columbia, SC, on business and stayed at this hotel while there. Other co-workers on the trip who stayed at another hotel not too far away complained of the street noise at the place they were staying making it hard for them to sleep, while I had no complaints at all. There were a lot of food places within easy walking distance of the hotel, with a range of prices. The staff was attentive, friendly and very helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending this as a hotel for anyone else travelling through Columbia.

The staff is excellent here at the Hampton. Britney Matt, Taylor & Lynn are the most friendliest and professional staff I have experienced in all my travels. I travel for business all over the United States and here in Columbia the staff is the best. The Hampton is in a great location to some of the finest restaurants and bars/pups in the area.

My husband and I frequently stay at Hampton Inns, and stayed here to attend an event at the convention center, which is literally next door. The hotel is within walking distance of a number of restaurants as well. The hotel met the usual Hampton Inn standard of cleanliness, and although we are not big fans of duvets, we certainly appreciate that the covers are changed for every new guest. I believe that someone complained about the "square pillows," but a good shake is all that is needed to produce a standard pillow. The staff at the reception desk were very friendly and helpful. Because we did not happen to have a 9-year old child with us, we found the TV quite mystifying, but managed to tune in through trial and error. Breakfast included the usual Hampton Inn selections (and excellent coffee) but even at 8:00 AM, the scrambled eggs, ham and biscuits were rather dried out.

Room Tip: If possible, choose a room that does not overlook Gervais street, which is noisy.

Dear IngridRPT,

On behalf of the entire team at the Hampton Inn in Downtown Columbia, we thank you for your gracious comments. Our location is one of our largest benefits to our property, and it is wonderful to hear that it worked perfectly for your stay. Our television guide can seem convoluted at times, and we apologize for that. The next time anything happens, please feel free to call down to our front desk and one of our GSR representatives will help you personally and in a timely manner. Also we are glad that you were able to enjoy the complimentary coffee and breakfast that is served every morning. Again if there are any issues with the food for breakfast, please just talk to one of our wonderful breakfast attendants. They will do whatever it takes to make your breakfast a great experience. Lastly we appreciate you staying with us, and we look forward to seeing you again!

The Staff is excellent, they are very professional, helpful, and friendly. The location of the Hotel is great, in the middle of Downtown Columbia. The breakfast offers good quality food. The only suggestion for the hotel is that it needs to improve the parking situation, parking lot is too small.
