I live with an Aggie, and this past weekend was the game between South Carolina and Texas A&M. He wanted to go to yell practice, and I had a plethora of rewards points, so I redeemed it for this property close to the State House, so we could attend Yell Practice. The valet was incredibly understanding about how there would be two cars for my room (my roommate was meeting me there, as I drove right from work), and had a ticket ready to go for said roommate. I check into my room and it is easily the most luxurious room I've gotten to enjoy. Bluetooth mirror (to play your music in the morning when you get ready, or at night when you wind down!), fancy shower, a TV in both the living room and the bedroom (I snagged a suite!) and electric shades to block out the light or bring it in. While waiting for my roommate to arrive, I had a small issue with the bathroom. I called the front desk and my issue was fixed in 10 minutes! In recognition of the issue, the hotel comped dinner for both me and my roommate that night. I had a burger, roommate had shrimp and grits, and we split a cookie. All we had to pay for was cocktails! Between the exceptional service, comfortable bed, wonderful room, and convenience to the State House, I really felt like a VIP while staying here. I look forward to my next stay, and BIG PROPS to Asha for making all the awesomeness happen!

After a very long travel day, I arrived at this hotel and stopped at the Valet Parking (the only option at this hotel). When I got out of the car, the parking attendant kept pointing to a car across the street and telling me to park there. I had no idea what he was talking about (silly me, I thought for 18.00 a night I would actually park at the hotel). He was trying to tell me to exit the hotel parking lot and park across the street. But he was wearing a mask and I could not hear nor understand him. Eventually he began yelling at me and kept repeating "park by the black car." Eventually I realized I need to park ACROSS THE STREET. So I exited the lot and parked where he yelled at me to park (near the black car) and I saw it said parking for "Mellow Mushroom." So I walk back to the hotel and asked if that was right. All he said was: "I told you to park by the black car." All he needed to say was: this lot is full and you will need to exit the parking lot and park across the street in the Mellow Mushroom (restaurant) parking lot. When I returned home and saw my bill, I saw I was charged for TWO nights, even though I arrived around 5PM and left in the morning. Clearly a mistake, but another problem I have to deal with. I won't be back to this hotel.

I was so looking forward to my stay here. I come to the area quite often and have stayed in many hotel in the Vista and some in the surrounding area and frankly many leave a lot to be desired --especially with high rates typical for a college town when some events are going on. So, when I saw a brand new, fresh modern hotel in an excellent location, I grabbed it. First impressions are excellent. The lobby is bright and modern with a full service bar. That's a welcome change from some of the local hotels. The freshness, stylishness and brightness continued into the elevators and hallways. The property gets high marks simply for being new and modern and sparkling clean. The location in great, in the heart of the Vista near shops and bars and dining and close to UofSC - walkable. But it is right across from CWP - if you know Columbia you know this is a popular country bar with bands and it can be loud. I was given a room facing CWP and on the weekend you could hear it in the room. I am not sure why new construction did not take soundproofing into account. Nor do I understand why an elite member was put in a room right next to the noise. But really any hotel in the Vista is going to have some noise so I was OK with it. This is where it ends -- and it drops off drastically. The rooms are just OK. Again, they are new so that is a plus. But they are rather sparce for my taste and small. No carpeting which in a way is a plus but you can hear every step from your friends upstairs. Clonk clonk clonk. It was loud. And even though new, I found the construction to be poor. The shower head not installed properly (leaked). Thermostat already broken. Biggest complaint is the service. I specifically researched whether housekeeping was available and was told it was. Upon check in I requested daily housekeeping and was assured it was available. Day 1 was great - housekeeping came and did a great job. Day 2, no housekeeping. 5 visits to front desk over the course of two days to finally get housekeeping. Believe me, I know hotels are trying to get away from daily housekeeping and I think that's terrible. So am I surprised -- no. Disappointed - yes. On my last night I had no hot water in the shower. Took a cold shower on departure morning. I told the front desk and the response was that they are new and they do not have the water all sorted out yet. Not sure what that means, and they have been open 2 months. Plenty of time to get hot water. I hate leaving a bad review on a new property. And I really want to like this place. But in all fairness, I asked to speak with a manager and that never happened. I reached out to Cambia and did not receive any response. I sent an email to ChoiceHotels customer service and that went unanswered. No matter how new and clean a hotel is, if you cant provide hot water and do not respond to guests requests to make it right, then you cant get high marks.

Cambria Hotel Columbia Downtown the Vista did an outstanding job hosting our wedding weekend of 80+ guest. The hotel is beautiful! All our rooms were ready on time, breakfast was great and the bar was a fun place to gather. The valet parking was very convenient. The staff was very helpful and welcoming to all our guest. This is a well run hotel and an asset to The Columbia Vista.

My wife and I visited The Cambria Hotel during our anniversary weekend (❤️27th) and it was no doubt one of the absolute best stays we’ve encountered during our marriage. We’ve lived and travelled the entire globe and we experienced the exact world class service from the front desk, cleaning staff, food service and the manager. It was an example of everyone being trained to walk and work to the same cadence of excellence. The only way we don’t book Cambria again is if it’s booked up!

We were some of the first guests at this beautiful hotel in downtown Columbia. Great location. Lovely decor and staff. The kids are still talking about the cast iron skillet chocolate chip cookie. Will definitely be going back for that and will definitely stay here again when we are in town. If you are looking for a top service hotel at a prime location, this is your place.
