My husband and I came to visit our son and attend a football. This is my second stay at this hotel. Over the past 3 years, I have stayed in 4 different Columbia hotels. I like the location of this hotel the best. Self parking is easy and we can walk to all the restaurants in the Vista. The staff here are very welcoming and friendly. The rooms are clean and overall well laid out. My only complaint with the room is there’s not a makeup mirror. It’s convenient having the breakfast included. I only wish the scrambled eggs were real eggs. Whatever egg substitute they use is not good.

Thank you very much for your review on us, Goodwin4me!

It's always great to get feedback from our football fans, especially when their kids play football too! It's great that you took advantage of the location of our hotel and got to have a great time with us. We do apologize about not having a proper make-up vanity and that our breakfast eggs didn't appeal to you. However, we do have a brand new breakfast menu coming out November 1st for Hyatt members that promises to be really tasty, and hopefully next time you visit we can see about getting more lighting for you in the vanity! Until then, safe travels!

My first-time experience at the Hyatt Place Columbia/The Vista was a great experience from the moment I drove up to the hotel to ask about parking. Everyone was very helpful. It was truly a welcoming experience. The food and drinks offered (coffee and teas) where a perfect touch added to pleasant surroundings to sit and have conversation with others. Thank you, I will visit again.

I have been in a hotel more than 120 plus nights this year and know a great team when I see one. The GM Luca and two others ( Denzell & Sarah) made a great impression on me during my visit. They each went out of their way to make this an awesome visit. I am typically a Marriott person but in this town I will from now on stay at the Hyatt Place. It is an up to date, clean, and centrally located where all of the action is in Columbia. Keep up the great work and keep hiring professional people like the folks mentioned in my review. 5 STARS

Got a li'l lost on the way, but Jennifer at front desk cleared it all up & gave us the Lady St. address for checking in. Room wasn't available for us to check in when we arrived around 3:30, but Luca was most apologetic & comped us some drinks while waiting for @ 3 mins. Two thumbs up for Jennifer and Luca!!!
Breakfast was great! Thanks to Jarry and his crew!!! He even gave me some to go boxes while my family slept in so they got to eat. We definitely felt like family and we will stay at this Hyatt again for future trips to Columbia.
