We were just passing through Columbia but made an excellent choice in this hotel. The lobby is newly renovated and beautiful. The staff goes above and beyond from the moment you pull your car up! The rooms are very nice and clean. The breakfast was outstanding. I highly suggest the fried green tomato eggs benedict.....a specialty of the house. And they even make their own in-house ice cream that is a "must try"! Would definitely stay here again

I stay at this hotel very regularly. It is within walking distance to the Capitol, USC and virtually all of downtown. Staff is friendly and the front desk staff really shines. There's no better way to feel welcome than to have a friendly and very helpful front desk staff.

Room Tip: Ask for an odd numbered room for a better city view!

I recently stayed at the Columbia Marriott while in town on business. It was a beautiful hotel with a very relaxed atmosphere. Right in the center of town, it was conveniently located near my venue, and also to local attractions for sight seeing in my free time. The staff was truly friendly and welcoming. Very professionally run. I used the valet and they were quick and respectful. I would definitely stay here again.

It's not a brand new hotel, but it's clean, comfortable, convenient, and offers easy parking downtown -- it was $12 for the entire stay. If you're not doing business you can probably find a newer or perhaps less expensive hotel in the area, but you will be hard-pressed to find a friendlier staff. The indoor pool was kind of a surprise -- very nice, with a really good exercise facility too. If you qualify for concierge services, the staff, breakfast, and facility were more than adequate. There are some reasonable options for food nearby too. Overall, a good downtown hotel.

The Columbia Marriott was a great place to stay in downtown Columbia. The staff was very friendly, and always willing to help. The room was clean, with extra towels, and the beds were very comfortable. I will definetely stay here in the future.

I stayed here as a rest stop over on my way to another city. The staff was more than polite and helpful. The hotel is close to the major interstate highways, the rooms are great, and the food at the hotel restaurant is incredible. I asked about their shrimp and grits (gotta have shrimp and grits when you're in South Carolina). Even though it wasn't time to start the lunch menu, they went ahead and made it. And it was great! I recommend this hotel if you're looking for a place to stay in Columbia.
