After a long drive starting in Florida early in the day I was looking forward to a restful night. Boy was I in for a surprise. So I pull up to the hotel, which has no driveway or on site parking, looking for someone to tell me where to leave the car to check in. I guess the one person...

This place was a lucky draw for me. I was able to get a deal on a room through a travel site, so ended up paying a little over $100 for a Saturday night here. My hat is off to the effort made to restore this hotel. The beauty starts in the lobby, with awesome materials and furniture. To the...

The location of this hotel is wonderful. Right in the middle of everything and you can walk to restaurants, businesses, museums, and the State House. The rooms are well furnished and fairly large for an old hotel. I had booked a corner room and could not hear any other guests unless they were in the hallway near our room. The...

This 16 story Sheraton property is located two blocks from the state house…Rooms are big city sized which means a bit small, but are decorated in a classic style and are well maintained. The entire staff is excellent, and tries to make sure the guests are satisfied. Parking is off site and about A five minute walk away..but valet service...

This is a Sheraton with character and nice, bright rooms with a spacious shower and well lit vanity. The rooms are well appointed in white and light grey with dark wood floors. It's a comfortable room so 2 people aren't tripping over each other. There's a full service Starbucks in the basement. It's around the corner from the capitol and...

We stayed here for a concert at y see Auditorium. Columbia itself is a great city, plenty of things to do downtown, all within walking distance of the hotel. Our room was beautiful. Definitely updated, but one could certainly see the history peeking through. My only complaint was the noise outside our room, as the doors were not soundproof at...
