We enjoyed our weekend stay in this high-rise, downtown hotel, located a few blocks from the capitol and within walking distance of many restaurants and shops. A garage is attached to the hotel; valet-and self-parking are available. Breakfast in the restaurant was especially nice. The buffet selection--fruit, breakfast breads, cereal, oatmeal, grits, bacon, sausage, eggs, biscuits and gravy, potatoes--offers something...

I recently stayed downtown at the Columbia Marriott in South Carolina for four nights on business and while the customer service exceeded my expectations, the rooms and facilities need some modernization. The staff was friendly, proficient and expecting my arrival. Check in was expedient and the bellman politely hovered so he could quickly bring luggage to the rooms. There was...

My wife and I have stayed at the Downtown Columbia, SC Marriott for over 15 years. The service is simply outstanding, particularly at the restaurant. In particular, I want to recognize Roxi, Quante, and Liliana for just being spectacular at their respective jobs. I used to wait tables, and it's hard, hard work, largely thankless. They always do things "right,"...

Overall this hotel was 'ok'. It has a decent location in the city. The staff is excellent and friendly, everything that you'd expect from a flagship hotel.

We stayed here on business. It is not quite up to par to the Marriott standard but it is in a great location. While we were there the parking lot elevators were down so we had to walk .Also, the air went out and the place was extremely hot. The workout room is very small.
