From the first greeting by the bellstaff to the speedy check in at the front desk, this hotel exceeded all expectations. The room was immaculately clean and every team member that we encountered was pleasant and greeted us with a smile. The management team at this hotel is definitely the best. Thanks for a great stay!

Dear Stephanie L from Greer,

Thank you for your recent review of the Hilton Columbia Center. I am so happy that you found the staff, accommodations, and service to be excellent. Our downtown city center location close to the capital and University of South Carolina has made the Hilton Columbia Center a top choice for business and leisure travelers alike. We recently upgraded our hotel with new 42 inch flat screen LCD televisions with an extended high-defination line up, in addition in every guest-room we added in-room safes, refrigerators, charging stations, and new the New Hilton luxury top of bed linens. We are proud to have made the investment in our hotel and will hope that our guests will continue to find our hotel, the best in Columbia.

The Free Times Newspaper just named the Hilton Columbia Center, best lodging in Columbia for the 2nd year in a row. Our on-site restaurant, Ruth's Chris steakhouse, was also just named best steakhouse in Columbia.

If we can ever do anything to enhance a future visit to Columbia, please do not hesitate to let us know!

Sincerely,

Tony Tam, General Manager-Hilton Columbia Center

We love this Hilton! The staff, amenities and location are all great. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and quiet!!! The view from our room was very nice, the large windows make the room airy and bright. The only issue that we had was with maid service. When we returned our room service tray was taken off the desk but where the server had spilled the salt wasn't cleaned up?!?!? Not sure how you miss that? Otherwise it was a great experience and we will be back to stay.

This Hilton is exceptionally maintained and the staff very helpful. The location in the Vista is very convenient and close to many restaurants and shops, although the food and bar service in the lobby's Ruth's Chris is very good as well.

Quiet and comfortable. Nice shower. There was a connecting door to the neighboring room, which meant that I was able to hear every word spoken in that room. Unfortunately for me, the person in that room had some sort of plumbing emergency at home and was making many late night / early morning phone calls yelling at plumbers and contractors. Breakfast wasn't included, and the hotel could have been anywhere - I know, that's what you get for booking a chain - but no complaints. Getting to and from the airport was expensive, but the location was within easy walking distance to the conference center and downtown.

Enjoyed it very much. My stay was much too short. Wish I could have stayed longer. Rooms very clean, staff knowledgeable and friendly. Service excellent. Staff always had a smile and willing to help in any way. This was my first stay at a Hilton Hotel and everything was wonderful. I was just in town overnight for a wedding. I would recommend this Hotel to every person whatever their needs might be. Nice to have a restaurant on site and not having to go out for anything. Enjoyed not having to hunt a parking space and when I got ready to wander out, all I had to do was call and my ride was waiting for me when I got down. Very nice service, especially to older people.

What a warm and friendly hotel. We had our two Douchaunds with with us and they were as important as we were. We arrived to a beautiful room with a doggie pillow and water bowl. The staff made us feel very welcomed. The day we left, I dropped my phone in the room. I came back and the housekeeping supervisor graciously looked and found it! Thank You!

Columbia SC - Been there many times, very nice place. The Hilton there i a terrific hotel, and if you get the opportunity its a Hilton as we used to know them. Also used the parking garage for a week - felt good about that, and will do it again when need arises. Nice place!
