Everyone was very friendly. Any employee I encountered greeted me with a hello and smile. Nice little gym with big windows so lots of sunshine, free weights to 50lbs, 2 benches, and universal machine. Also a mini fridge stocked with water. Nice rooms, standard furnishings, nothing extraordinary. Medium sized flat screen TV. Comfortable bed with lots of pillows. Only small...

I was at the Columbia Marriott for a conference and realized I had left my phone charger. Julie (I think that is her name - who worked the dining room and bar - on 10/20 & 10/21) repeatedly let me use a "box" wireless charger. She was a lifesaver! Also, my card had issues in the lock and Austin with...

My hubby and I stay here when we have overnight business in Columbia. There is always something going on in downtown Columbia! Check in is easy, especially if you have Marriott app. There is on site parking a great lounge and restaurant and sites within walking distance of the hotel. The Sunday brunch is very good. It includes omelet station,...

I am really impressed with the service from the associates at this hotel - from the front desk crew to the women who work the concierge lounge. The level of the politeness is almost overwhelming for a Bostonian, but I've been there enough times now to know that it is 100% real. Concierge Lounge is great for breakfast (if you...

We checked in after driving 11 hours. Renee was quick on our registration and full of information but we were so exhausted we did not comprehend everything she told us. In the morning I remembered part of what Renee said about concierge breakfast. I called the front desk and the girl had no idea what I was talking about and...

This is a nice hotel. The room was clean and comfortable. However, the vent for the air distribution needs to be updated. It's like looking down a black hole and it's very creepy. Great location and plenty of places to eat during business hours, after that you have to have not around.

For $365 a night without breakfast in a low cost state this property should blow you away. Instead you find an imposing building, but one which is urgently in need of a major upgrade. Rooms are basic and old fashioned, the staff "cheap and cheerful" rather than attentive and polished, the breakfast buffet cramped and spartan with very limited choices,...

For $350+tax, I had expected 1st class service, excellent rooms and a great experience. Instead, service is mediocure and rooms small. Internet speeds are below 1mbps unless you want to spend more money. This morning a hotel staff asked me if I was staying here because some homeless person must have slept in their lobby restroom. I couldn't believe it....

Love the location of this hotel, especially on Saturday mornings when the street market is in full tilt. Have stayed here in years past and am noticing a decline in the attention to details. Housekeeping especially needs to raise the standards. Dirty bathroom, paper coffee cups not replaced or restocked after first night, wrong size sheets (full sized sheets stretched...
