Would be better if it had a pool/hot tub. Parking area is a little sketchy. Staff was always professional and friendly. We love that it had a bar and food options. The location is perfect walking distance to plenty of restaurants and shops downtown.

This is by far one of the cleanest hotels we have ever stayed in. The entire hotel was squeaky clean. Upon entering our room it smelled fantastic! There was not a speck of dust or dirt anywhere. The window, mirror, sink and glass shower door were clean and without water spots. The shower stall was all white, and there was not a hair or speck of soap scum, mildew, stains, etc. Microwave and mini fridge were spotless as well. Linens were clean. We asked for fresh towels one day, just expecting towels. When we returned our entire room was spotless again! Staff was cheerful, smiling, and friendly every time we entered or left. There was always someone at the front desk to help if we had questions. We stayed here on 2 separate occasions this month and will definitely stay here again. Highly recommend staying here!

i can not say enough about how wonderful our stay was at this hotel. the staff was over the top friendly and accommodating. i wish i took note of every staff member we engaged with, but the receptionist who checked us out was reagan, and she could not have been more delightful. the hotel was amazingly clean and the food /bar in the lobby was such a treat. our daughter attends the university of SC and we will now be using this hotel every time we visit moving forward!

Thank you to the entire team at The Holiday Inn in Downtown Columbia. I was recently in Columbia on an extended business trip and my company selected this hotel. The staff was warm and welcoming and accommodating in every way. By the end of the first few days the front desk team knew me by name and treated me like family, always asking about my stay and my day, it was great to have that connection since I was away from home for 6 weeks. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the amenities in pristine condition. I used the gym almost every day and it was always cleaned and stocked with water and towels. Shout out to Jodi for leading her team with genuine warm and hospitality and inspiring excellence every day! I'll be back!!

Our Healthcare company has several doctors working at various Columbia area hospitals and they LOVE staying at The Downtown Holiday Inn. There are many other properties that they could stay at but they always want to stay at the Holiday Inn. The Manager, Jodi Corp, goes above and beyond to accommodate our doctors and give us a competitive rate. The Front Desk staff are always welcoming and enjoyable. I enjoy working with the General Manager Jodi Corp; she is responsive, personable and always willing to do whatever it takes to make the stay a win!

We loved our stay at the Holiday Inn downtown! My husband and I had a voucher for a free night and the staff treated us wonderfully. The manager, Jodi, was very responsive and kind and set us up for an awesome night’s stay. The hotel was conveniently located to downtown, clean, and modern. We would recommend the Holiday Inn to anyone looking to stay somewhere nice in the heart of Columbia!
