Stayed here for a SCECA conference. Room was very nice and clean. Hotel has a nice little breakfast too. This hotel is in the heart of Columbia. You can walk to all the restaurants, bars and shops. The conference center is a block away. The hotel had free beers and drinks in the evenings. Which was really nice.

“We chose a room on the opposite side from Gervais St. because we thought it might be a little noisy. Our room location was nice and quiet.”
