From checkin to morning breakfast everyone was accommodating in this comfortable and historic hotel. Charming restored old bank building is located in the heart of the city and within minutes of University of South Carolina. Great stay both times we have been in town!

I enjoyed a delicious dinner at the Sheraton. Chef Drew Morgan is new to the hotel, but he has rejuvenated the menu. The food is fresh and the seafood is of top quality. The Sesame Encrusted Ahi Tuna is the best I have tasted (I even live in Charleston,SC). I travel to Columbia several times a week for business. I...

It is gratifying to see historic downtown buildings such as the Palmetto Building here in Columbia, SC being repurposed. Kudos to Sheraton for making this happen. I did not eat at the restaurant nor visit the rooftop bar. We did visit the Vault Bar. As most businesses, it's about the people - their motivation and their training. The first person...

I did not have the privilege of staying here, but I did enjoy the rooftop bar. We were out for a night on the town, and this was a must-stop. From what I saw, the common areas, bathrooms and the bar itself were very clean and had a nostalgic feel to them. The view of Columbia is probably unmatched, as...

The staff was very pleasant. The room was nice, plenty of room, but a bit noisy at times. The bathroom was a good size, but the grout needed some bleach. Too few towels. The bed was large, comfy, with nice sheets and plenty of pillows. I'll revisit.
