My husband and I stayed at this hotel as part of a package to The Masters Golf Tournament. The staff were excellent and very helpful. The room was very clean and spacious. The bathroom was rather small and had no window or extractor. As we arrived back very late from the tournament, we chose to eat in the hotel restaurant....

I stayed Apr 5 through Apr 9. I cannot call out names of people who were AMAZING because I would undoubtedly leave someone out and that wouldn't do them justice. EVERY member of staff was so friendly, caring, and helpful. I felt at home and comfortable. My room was comfortable and roomy, the bed made me not want to get...

I stayed here for two nights while in Columbia, and I will say that I will not stay here again. On my first night there I parked in the self-parking lot which is connected to the hotel. This was my first mistake. It was late at night and there were lots of sketchy folks hanging near the elevators for each...

Dear richj22, Thank you for reviewing your stay at our property. We appreciate your feedback but are disappointed that you say you will not return to stay with us. We love our central downtown Columbia location, and have a strong relationship with the City of Columbia Parking Services - who own the parking garage connected to the hotel. While we...

I needed a mental break from a series of unfortunate events before returning home. The Columbia Marriott offered me most of what was needed. The appointed room was a standard, comfortable one. The amount of dust on the surfaces of most room items was noticeable but understood by a southerner accustomed to spring pollen. However, the dust on the in-room...

The hotel was located about a 15-20 minute walk from campus and all the restaurants and shops. The staff was friendly and very pleasant. Our room was a good size, clean and quiet. However, the air conditioning did not work, our room was never cleaned (we left the room at 8 am and returned at 4 ) and the television...

I have stayed in several hotels in Columbia on business over the past two years. I would tie the Marriott and Hilton in the Vista for second place. They all have the same room & valet parking rates and beautiful hotels, but when it comes to location and services there are subtle differences. The food, service, location and other amenities...

At first glance, this Marriott looks like the place to stay in Columbia, SC. I wish I could recommend it. I can't. I was here for a convention and did not participate in the selection of the hotel. My check in experience was long and included the staff member needing managerial help not once but multiple times. I was walking...
