I stayed at the Hilton Columbia Center for a quick 36 hour trip including 2 nights. This hotel is in a very vibrant area with many convenient restaurants and bars and walkable access to USC. All this activity does make a 11:30pm arrival on Friday night a bit tricky, and I was thrilled that there was a nice big parking lot next to the hotel. Unfortunately, there is no clear signage on that lot (belongs to USC alumni) and I had to move my car into the parking garage...which I will say is very convenient and offers easy access to the hotel. My check in was quick and efficient, but when I arrived at my rather large and beautifully appointed king room, every single light was on and every drawer and cabinet was wide open. Very odd, and somewhat irritating to finish someone else's job. The bed was incredibly comfortable with lovely pillows and a fluffy duvet, but the pull on the curtains and the shower doors were broken, the fan on the heater ran loudly and I was unable to change the temperature, and the coffee maker was set in a location where it can't actually be plugged in. Would I stay here again? Interestingly, yes. I would just plan to arrive earlier, request a different room, and stay longer to enjoy the area.
