“Best Sheraton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

I can't get over the staff here. They are unbelievably accomodating and really know the meaning of customer service. Denise is so kind and Leith in the lounge is a pleasure every day. Lilly in the Vault is great as well. This is the only hotel I will stay at in Columbia, Sc. The rooms are clean and comfortable as well and the location is great!

I just wanted to say that the staff at this hotel is wonderful!!! From the moment I walked in the door to the moment I left the staff was very accommodating and went above and beyond(especially Garett)!! The rooms were very clean and I hope to come back and try out the Rooftop bar!

Quality hotel in a cool building. rooms are big, clean and modern. Expectations for hotel restaurants are low. This one met my expectations on food and exceeded it staff friendliness! Nikki in the restaurant bar and Lillie in the Main bar are excellent! Makes you want to come back!

Fitness center is a 1/2 broken. Big issue that need to be addressed.

Room Tip: king beds rule....

I've stayed at this hotel several times as they have government rate rooms. I appreciate the staff and valet service. Heather Davis was particularly helpful on one occasion where I was going to be inconvenienced and she made sure that my stay was as comfortable as possible.

Room Tip: Double rooms are very nice and spacious.

I stayed at the Sheraton last weekend for a business trip. I travel every week and I was AMAZED at the level of service the staff gives its customers. Heather Davis at the front desk went much above and beyond to make sure that my stay was as pleasant as possible. We had several issues with our event (unrelated to the hotel) and every evening she made sure that we were taken care of. I hope I come back next year for the same event, purley because of my experience with the Sheraton staff.

This was a business trip to Columbia and the Hilton, where I typically stay, was booked, so I thought I'd try the Sheraton. I was pleasantly surprised. The beds were comfortable and plush. The television in the bathroom was nice. Parking takes a few minutes since it's valet only, but the valets are friendly and prompt. Nikki S in the tavern restaurant in the hotel was friendly and attentive.

First time visiting downtown Columbia and walked into the Sheraton without a reservation. Kate at the front desk gave me a warm greeting. She had a pleasant spunk about her and even signed me up for the rewards program. I look forward to coming back to the Sheraton for a longer stay. The vault and rooftop bars are a great place to have a night cap as well.
