This HGI is very nice and the people are really nice to you. They have an indoor pool and a great workout gym. I did not use the pool, but I opened the doors to see if the smell of chlorine was stong enough to bleach the clothes I was wearing. Surprise, it wasn't bad at all. Anyway, the rooms are great here and the common areas, such as the gym and pool area were very clean and in great working order. I will try and stay at this place any time I am in the area in the future.

Dear DerikkT,

Thank you for your recent review of our hotel! Our staff is so pleased to see that you enjoyed your recent experience with us so much. The team always strives to exceed all guest expectations at every turn. Glad to hear that we did not bleach your shorts off... :) Just to let you know, we will be converting to a salt water system in the very near future. This will provide a better swimming experience to all. Come back to see us soon so you can take advantage of all of our amenities that includes our onsite restaurant serving breakfast, dinner, and room service along with a full bar. Have a great weekend!

We stopped over in Columbia, SC on our way to HHI for vacation with family. Hilton Garden Inn Columbia/Harbison was a the best place! Staff was excellent. I'd like to give a shout out to Brigg's. We ate dinner in the restaurant and she was a delight. Excellent service, very professional. We will make this a permanent part of our trip to HHI. The room, service, food couldn't be better. Thank you!

Room Tip: Our room was perfect.

I had the pleasure of having my wedding reception here and staying here for my wedding night and the night before I got married. Service was superb and the best staff ever. I was always greeted with a smile. THey were so patient with me and all my hoopla. I had several people helping me the day of my wedding and we required several room cards made at no extra charge. They let me borrow the steamer to steam my dress.

The room: was a suite. It was huge. It had 1 full bathroom and 1/2 bath - toilet and sink and it was still spaciious. The full bathroom - had a jacuzzi/jet tub, glass walk in shower, large vanity/sink. The bed was a sleep number king size bed. Large flat screen tv in room and living room. The living room - had a couch that let out into a bed and 2 seating chairs. The closet was spacious. It also had a wet bar and mini refrigerator. I loved the room. Very comfortable, no smell, AC worked fine (thankfully, because it was hot).

Breakfast - we received 2 free dining coupons for breakfast, otherwise it was $10 for all american breakfast. You ordered your meal and took a number and sat down and was served by staff. They made pancakes, omelets, and more. They had grits, eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuit and gravy and corned beef hash. They had the waffle maker. Fresh fruit and yogurt. Danishes, bagels, toast, and juice station. The food was excellent

Checkout was easy and stressfree. I had never stayed at a Hilton but I definitely would again.

Location - in Harbison near the mall, several other hotels, a large variety of restaurants.

I recently had the absolute pleasure of staying at your Hilton garden inn in Columbia, SC. Your staff was extremely proffesional and made the fact that I was away from home for a week much more bearable. I will be having all of my employees stay at this location whenever we need to do any training in Columbia. I would like to especially thank Briggs,Bianca, and Jonathon for your excellent attention to detail and welcoming personality!
