Sheraton Columbia Downtown Hotel
Ranked #43 of 94 Hotels in Columbia
Reviewed 20 May 2014

This place used to an old bank, so it has an interesting setup inside. The rooms are par for the course with your typical Sheraton. Centrally located in Columbia, with lots of areas in walking distance. The hotel can be a little difficult to navigate due to the aforementioned layout, however it makes for a unique experience and I'd make a trip back if I was ever passing through again.

Thank you for your recent response on Trip Advisor. We appreciate you feedback as our valued guest. We are delighted to hear of your pleasant experience at our unquie boutique hotel. POSH on the Mezzanine and the RoofTop Bar do not have access from all three elevators, which can sometimes be a little tricky. Please feel free to stop and ask any of our friendly staff if ever needing assistance of locating a specific area in the hotel. Thank you for your business and we do look forward to serving you in the future.

As usual- I was in town on business and needed a place to stay for a couple nights. A friend recommended the Sheraton and I'm glad she did. The property used to be a bank. The rooms are decent sized and well appointed. Beds are perfect. My favorite parts are the rooftop bar and the vault lounge.

Room Tip: Go straight to the top.

After many stays in Columbia, I have always been very pleased with and rewarded for staying the this hotel. The historic character of the building, the complicated yet quaint layout all make for a charming adventure. The rooms are very comfortable, not overly spacious, but always sufficient to make the stay enjoyable.
The internet, now complimentary, is astronomically fast. This was a very pleasant surprise.
There is only one drawback that I noticed on this last stay, and that took be aback: smoking is allowed on the roof-top bar in spite of the hotel claiming to be a smoke-free facility.
It had never been an issue before, so perhaps this was a fluke or an overzealous smoker.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are a bit smaller but well lit and feel bigger

I stay at the Sheraton downtown Columbia on a weekly basis. The highlight of my stay is the special customer service that Cedric provides at the Club Lounge. He is like a neighbor that you see walking down the street. He provides all of the comforts of your own home and is a stellar Sheraton employee. He is exceptional.

I have been traveling to Columbia, SC on business for 7 months and have stayed at the hotel 4 days a week during my trips. What made me keep coming back to the hotel, besides the great location and heavenly beds, is knowing that I would be always welcomed by Cedric at the Club Lounge. Cedric welcomes you to the Club Lounge as though you are coming home or as his most welcomed family members. He has a refined touch of elegance evident in everything he does - from picking out the right plates for your food to generously checking in on you to make sure you have tasted the food, that it didn't get cold (if it did, he makes sure he goes and warms it up for you!) and often has a little surprise up his sleeve. Full of life, friendly, always positive and with a smile on his face, Cedric is Sheraton's gem. Thank you Cedric for making my stay at the Sheraton an experience! :)

We wanted to stay somewhere close to the University of South Carolina for a college visit. It was a great location. It was a fully restored older hotel. Very historic. Loved the room finishing and restored wooden floors. Water pressure was very low in the morning. Other than that, was a great stay.

Room Tip: Higher floors reduce noise from streets.
