For the last 15 years my sister and I have stayed at the Columbia for our yearly trip to the Shakespeare festival. We love the quaintness and friendly atmoshere. It is centrally located and is within walking distance to the theathers, shopping & restaurants. Once we park the car we don't have to drive anywhere until we leave. The desk staff is knowledgeabe about the area, activities and best places to eat. We find the hotel affordable which is important to us since we stay long enough to see 6 plays.
