Hilton Garden Inn Columbia - Harbison
Ranked #3 of 94 Hotels in Columbia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Stopped here on the way South on Feb 22nd 2013. Was recognized as a HHonors member and given a very quiet room. Room was well appointed, clean and comfortable. Will stay here again. The only drawback to Hilton Garden Inns in the lack of a "free" breakfast. Around the corner to Panera Breads solved the problem. Just can't eat $12.95 worth of breakfast, times two for self and wife. Will make this my stop next year.

Dear NelsonKid,

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments with us and other travelers about your recent experience. Your continued loyalty as a Hilton Honors member is most appreciated as you are one of our most valuable guests. At Hilton Garden Inn we offer a full cooked-to-order breakfast with many delicious options that we find to be an excellent value for our guests. You can enjoy savings on our breakfast by booking a Bed 'N' Breakfast package. Also, Hilton Honors member who reach Gold Status can enjoy free breakfast daily at all Hilton Garden Inn's as a part of the My Way Program. These options will offer no out of pocket costs to you or great savings less than the other options you mentioned. I can understand where this is an important factor when trying to minimize your travelling expenses. If I can be of assistance please let me know. We look forward to seeing you back soon!

During the initial entrance, I was very impressed with the hotel's appearance. The lobby was very nice, the front desk attendant was extremely nice and helpful. When we entered the room I became very disappointed. Popcorn ceilings, small room, nothing spectacular! This hotel needs to update the guest rooms immediately...very outdated.

Stayed in Columbia on way back form Florida. The staff was pleasant courteous at check in gave me a lower rate with out asking. Room clean, well appointed and quiet. Breakfast was good an very reasonable in price.
Although we do to not often take a route through columbia it may be route of choice just to stay here.

My mother and I stay at the Harbison Hilton Garden Inn when we are in Columbia to visit our family. The staff makes us feel as if we are home. Jared is one of the best chefs ever for breakfast. My mom's is always prepared correctly. She's picky, and Jared knows just how she likes her breakfast. He's always got a great attitude too! The wait staff, especially Albertha, is friendly and always perfectly attentive. We always choose to have dinner with our family there as well.

Yolande and Dwight helped us several times with special requests. True compassion is evident. Sean is personable while being an effective manager. I work in a service industry; these folks at Harbison are among the best I've seen. Our family feels so welcome here. The building is lovely and well cared for, but the staff make it feel like home!! Can't wait to go back. Thank you!!!

My husband, son and I took a trip this past weekend to the Riverbanks Zoo and having knowledge of the Hilton Garden Inn hotels I was quite confident in staying there. The hotel is conveniently located near the mall, stores and restaurants however it still has a residential feel. We requested a high floor and was advised there was a college baseball team staying on the 6th floor; however we never knew it as it was quite quiet. The receptionist that checked us in was very pleasant and my husband wants to come back to stay again. Next time we will have breakfast as the reviews were good about the food.

Dear Sharon B,

Thank you for sharing your comments with us and others about your recent stay. I hope that your family enjoyed the trip to the Riverbanks Zoo. It is a Columbia favorite with excellent exhibits and animals. Often I take my kids to this zoo when the weather permits which is year-round with Columbia's mild climate. Our hotel has many wonderful amenities for anyone to enjoy or is great for just a quiet, relaxing getaway. Next time please do join us at our onsite restaurant, the Great American Grill, where we serve breakfast, dinner, and room service. We would love to have your family back with us again soon!
