Great staff! Loved the glass of wine upon our arrival. Excellent deli and restaurants within 100 feet - Mr. Friendly's food was great! Unique architecture. Not the cookie cutter place. Breakfast in the room at a time that worked for us was a nice touch! We will be back!

This place was awesome! Great location in five points. Super classy, very clean, beautiful decor, superb staff and very reasonably priced for this level of a place. It was also pretty cool about the historic significance of the building and how they use and or pay tribute to it in their decor and treats. So very impressed. Thanks a ton...

nice, clean, and the breakfast was good. There was no pool that is why i gave it a bad review. Also the only bad thing is that it was right near the train tracks. During the day wasn't bad but it was the train horn at 3 am that was the bad part but we were close to everything. I...

Dear SMITHUCCI, We appreciate you allowing us to provide your hotel accommodations while in Columbia.

Claussen's is a converted Bakery building and done very nicely. It is an appropriate hotel with fantastic service in a great location in Columbia, SC. The staff was very friendly, professional and accommodating.

From even before our arrival we experienced the most wonderful front desk staff ever at a hotel. I spoke with Roomy on several occasions to make sure everything was in order. It was a pleasure from our arrival to departure. He made us reservations, helped with wine selections and was well-versed on things to do in town. We will definitely...

The location was within walking distance to several restaurants and bars. It is a "college" part of town so you will see young faces with backpacks. The hotel itself is quite beautiful. It has a mixture of modern and old southern charm. This is not a chain hotel...it is a boutique. Would highly recommend if you are looking for something...
