Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Columbia

Reviewed December 13, 2012

This was not a noisy property, but its proximity to the interstate detracts from the overall experience. The staff are amazingly friendly. We went down to enjoy the hotel restaurant one night, and to our chagrin, it was closed for a private party. We were told the bar was open for dinner. Well, the bar was very noisy and seemed too crowded. But, out of nowhere came our server and shepherded us to a booth. She that tonight was Girls Night Out for some locals, and they always pick this bar, I can see why. The Happy Hour specials (food and drink) were a great value. Soon, we were among the noisies, as we had a great evening (we also stayed at the Doubletree in Charleston; it is hard to believe they are the same brand; the difference is in the attentiveness of the staff)

Nice accommodations and close to I-20. Very convenient location and good food quality at the restaurant. Make sure to ask for a room away from the I-20 front as it can be noisy with the 24/7 tractor trailer traffic which IS noticeable at night. Recommend that you sign up for Hilton Honors and ask for a 5th floor room accommodations. Reasonable pricing and quality sleeping location.

Room Tip: ASK for a room away from I-20 !!!!

Very updated hotel with the best hotel gym I've ever seen at a chain hotel - tons of treadmills/elliptical machines, free weights a and a weight machine. Price was fantastic with AAA discount, and location made it easy to get on and off the interstate to downtown.

Traveled with my husband for his business. The two-room suite was of barely adequate size for two adults. I was surprised there was no microwave or sink in the coffee bar area, just a tiny mini-fridge (that did not keep milk cold - the second day it was spoiled). The first night there was a loud party going on. The second evening, when the music started up again, we called to complain about the noise, and it stopped. One reason we chose this hotel was the in-house restaurant, so that my husband could have early morning breakfasts. The restaurant did not open on time, and he ended up going to Cracker Barrel across the street. That night, we tried pre-ordering our breakfast to be served in our room the next morning, using the room-service menu you place on the door. But our breakfast order was never picked up from the door. So, back again to Cracker Barrel. The room was reasonably clean. But when we left, I discovered under a pile of clothes I had tossed into a dark corner of the room, a puddle of water on the floor. So I had to pack my clothes up, soaking wet, into my suitcase. Overall a pretty miserable experience. The best thing about our stay, actually, was the Cracker Barrel nearby.

Exterior of hotel and the loby area are very nice, clean, and updated. Once you get to the hallways and the room, things change. Hallways and room are not very clean. Lots of dust, scuffed walls, worn out carpets, and old furntiture that has seen better times. When we got the room, there was trash still in the trash can!

Front staff was nice, but rest of staff in the hotel not very friendly. They seem to have lots of employees walking all around the hotel, but not doing much.

The hotel needs to update the rooms and put some type of quality program in place for its housekeeping staff to keep the rooms and hallways cleaner

Stayed for several nights as we attended military graduation at Ft. Jackson. Convenient location to highway, restaurants. Sleep number bed was wonderful! I want one! Breakfast included was full service and delicious. Even ordered a wonderful omelet. The dining room was lovely as were the ladies serving us!

Neglected property. I have a list of complaints I will raise to the management directly, but this property is a Hilton only in name. Here's just once petty complaint: plaster dust under the desk from a recent network/power connection install. Really? you couldn't vacuum that? I could accept that as a single oversight, but I have about a dozen such complaints that add up to a picture of neglect.
I was to stay a total of four nights but checked out after the first and am now in the Comfort Inn.
It wasn't terrible, but at 139 a night (whereas the Comfort Inn is 79 a night) I wanted value for money.
Here are the pluses: The beds are nice (sleep number) and the toiletries are fancy. Good towels too.
