Two adults and teen daughter stayed here in December for a post-Christmas college tour. Lady at check-in was super nice and even told us the regular rate was cheaper than the government rate so we switched the rate. We are platinum elite but that doesn't give you much at a SHS but we did opt for the extra points instead...

Friendly staff. Unique in so far as it has a full bar in the lobby and close enough to walk to restaurants. Very close the zoo and botanical gardens (5 min drive) which was the purpose of our trip. Only minor down side was the layout of bathroom. Shower and toilet were in two separate rooms with sliding doors. Probably...

We stayed at Springhill Suites in Columbia to attend the U of SC graduation ceremonies. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and accommodating with all of our needs. The staff in the mornings putting out the delicious buffet were also amazing. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area.

I have stayed at several Marriott hotels all over the USA but the Charesse W and Reggie C at the front desk customer service was wonderful.

This hotel is located in the up and coming Vista area of Columbia, near the river. The place was a perfect base camp. The rooms are suites, so there is a microwave and small dorm-sized fridge in each, along with a sitting area and desk. The beds are very comfortable,with a nice winter-weight duvet providing just enough coverage for the...
