I recently tied the knot in downtown Columbia, SC. We blocked off about 20 rooms here for our out of town guests- the majority of which had never visited SC - or at least Columbia. As a USC alum, this was the perfect host hotel. It is such a convenient location to downtown, has very nice rooms, and comfortable lounges in which families can gather and have a good time -which they did! Everyone loved it. And the bride and groom were treated very well. The bridal suite was beautiful and spacious. :) Kudos to Rochelle for arranging for our guests!
