This hotel is beautiful inside and out. It's located downtown close to USC and the Capitol so any sightseeing in those areas make this location ideal. The rooms and clean and updated. The fee for parking seemed excessive especially since it was the hotels parking deck. Restaurant and room service are expensive and overpriced. Our room had a great little mini fridge but unfortunately no microwave which made heating of coffee/tea impossible. Creamer for coffee was scarce, as well as, sugar packets. Curtains in our room did not close so there was street lights shining into room and no sense of privacy. Well appointed furnishings and flat screen TV. Bed was extremely comfortable. On a sour note, I dropped an expensive sweatshirt when we checked in and my husband said he saw one in the lobby on a chair. When we realized the one in the lobby was mine, it was gone. I inquired at the front desk and it was not turned in by the staff. Makes me think a staff member picked it up and kept it. So customers please be aware of possible thefts within the hotel and keep those items in your car. We will not return to this location.

I recently spent the night here when giving a medical lecture for a group event. This is what you expect from the Hilton, with great bedding, bathroom with immaculate tile and clean carpet with a nice business desk! The location for Columbia offers a short walk to the best restaurants (Ruth's Chris inside the property) and bars in the city. The work-out facility was only average, and my air conditioning in the room only partly functioned, thus earning only four-star rating despite an overall pleasant experience.

Room Tip: If you like a cool room in the summer, make sure to request a lower floor location.

Dear giguy from Tennessee,

Thank you for your recent review of the Hilton Columbia Center. I am so glad you enjoyed your recent stay at the hotel. Our work-out facility has 2 treadmills, 2 ellipticals, and 1 bike along with a multitude of resistant equipment, occasionally the variety of equipment is short of an experienced work-out guru like yourself. In cases like this, please let us know and we will be more than happy to make arrangements for you at a local gym. Thank you again for the great comments and we look forward to seeing you in Columbia again soon!

Sincerely,

Tony Tam, General Manager--Hilton Columbia Center

We stayed here one night to visit a relative attending Univ of South Carolina while en route to Myrtle Beach. Overall, it was good stay, though there were a few small items that prevented giving the hotel a 5 star rating.

Good items about the hotel:

Location: Steps away from some nice restaurants and bars. Also walkable to the USC campus. The dorm where my relative lives was about 0.8 miles. There's one hotel that is essentially on campus, but this Hilton is nicer.

Parking: Large, spacious parking garage connected to the hotel. Self park and valet available.

Property quality: Overall, the property was nice and in good shape. The feel of a "nice" hotel. A few small exceptions noted later.

People: All the hotel staff we ran into at the front desk and hallways were nice and welcoming.

There was minor cleaning item and minor maintenance item with the room -- nothing that was much of an issue. A somewhat larger problem was the outdoor pool. It was green -- pretty sure that was not the intended color of the water. Possibly an algae problem. Decided not to try the pool because of that problem, even though it was brutally hot that day.

Hilton live up to their standard and goal of customer satisfaction. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and the staff was pleasant as usual. The onsite restaurant (Ruth's Chris) is pricy, however several other choices are within walking distance very close to the hotel.

I needed to stay a night in Columbia for one of my best friend's wedding, and chose the Hilton. I have stayed at a lot of hilton properties (Hilton Diamond), and this is by far the best hotel I've ever stayed at, with the exception of the Hilton Resort properties, but you really can't compare a resort property to a regular hotel. I'd highly recommend staying here if traveling to Columbia.
