I have been staying at the Columbia Hotel since 1977 when it was still a residence hotel, allowing guests only during the summer. I have watched the Columbia grow in charm and amenities. The convenience absolutely cannot be beat. As a non- driving play goer the locale is ideal. The management has always been most accommodating and I love the fresh flowers. A bonus is the absence of TVs and phones in the rooms. I am looking forward to many, many more stays at the Columbia.
