Aside from parking which you have to pay for our to night stay was great! Close to everything and good breakfast. Clean and friendly staff. We were on the 5th floor and street side, the traffics noise wasn't bad at all. Definitely would stay there again.

This is my third stay here. We have a dance competition right next door every February. Great location and staff. Quick check in and out. The cookies are delicious they sit out about 3:00 everyday. The breakfast is very good.

This hotel is close to everything and couldn't be nicer. Everyone is very professional and helpful. Hampton always has quality breakfast and the 24 hour coffee is to die for! Loved the stay. I always love this location when I'm in Columbia.

In the heart of the Vista/Downtown District. Walking distance to fabulous restaurants and the convention center. The breakfast features good selections of proteins and low cal options. For the indulgent you have Krispy Kreme donuts as a part of the danish options. Neat and clean rooms.
