Good accomodation downtown. I had arranged for a hotel shuttle to pick me up which turned into an hour plus wait. To their credit, the hotel comped me breakfast and apologized for the inconvenience. Cab fare from the Columbia airport is $25 plus tip...
I didn't want to leave the bed! The only problem was the shuttle to the hotel but the manager was great about making up for it!
Best staff ever, very welcoming and helpful! Best staff ever, very welcoming and helpful!
Courteous staff. Great valet parking. Rooms acceptable but not spectacular. Flat TVs would perk up the property. Nice bath products. Some excellent views. I've stayed in this hotel half a dozen times and it's usually a good value for the money.
I stayed here for a conference being held so my job payed the bill. Very nice hotel but pricey... The staff was very courteous. Both the restaurant and bar served good meals. The common areas were clean. Internet was not free nor was parking. The bed was comfortable and I was unable to hear anything outside of the room which is always a plus (the hotel was pretty full because of the conference). But I have stayed in as nice and nicer hotels for 3/4 of the price...
As Marriotts go, this one is OK. The rooms are comfy & nicely decorated. The hotel is clean and offers convenient dining options. The concierge/front desk were quite satisfactory. At check-in, the clerk was confused about how I had made and paid for the reservation- which made my nervous. I had issues with my door key every time I needed to get into my room. No mini-bar; room service was late. Overall, quite comfortable and very convenient location. SMOKERS beware, though- you'll be going outside at all times of day and night.
We have stayed here twice and both times I was very pleased with the service as well as the hotel. They also now have a Starbucks downstairs!!!!!
We were in Columbia for a nephew's wedding and his parents reserved rooms and held their reception here. From the moment we pulled into the unloading area it was nothing but incredible service! Everything was immaculate, the food in the restaurant was great. Our room was impeccable! THe beds were so incredibly comfortable, with down matress pads and comforters, six pillows on each bed... Our son wanted a portable crib so we called room service and they brought us a Graco Pack-N-Play. It was perfect! In the middle of the night (around 1am), my husband was sick and we needed some cleaning supplies and they brought them right up. Then, at 4am, my son woke up and wanted some milk. The kitchen was closed and the doors were locked, but they opened it up to get us some milk and brought it to us. The reception was incredible as well. The food was delicious and again, the service was great! The parking garage is attached to the hotel through a breezeway and is convenient and it feels safe to have your car parked there. The pool is really nice but it was FREEZING cold. The spa was very nice, as was the gym facility! I will definately think of Marriott every time I'm in need of accomodations anywhere!
My wife and I stayed at this beautiful Marriott while visiting our daughter at USC. From the moment we stepped out of the car, the bellman, Eugene, greeted us with his Southern charm. I can see why many guests stay at the Marriott in Columbia. With the exceptional service and great location, we will come back to this grand hotel several more times in the upcoming years!
Great view and convenient to local bars and restaurants.
have been stayed twice in half year.Very friendly,helpful staff.The last time we checked in early,the room was not ready. We got free starbucks coffe coupon and free breakfast coupon.Room was ready in an hour when we were having lunch in the Center City Grille.We will def stay in there again!
Conference attendees enjoyed comparing notes about the horrors. One room had the mini-fridge propped up by a telephone book. Another leaked perpetually onto the carpet. Mine, thankfully, was not plugged in. My sink did not drain and the toilet was very slow. Garbage from conference coffee break was not removed two days later. A box of Extra Strength Carpet Odor Eliminator was left on the small table outside the elevator-an omen of things to come.
Location. Comfy bed in a clean room. A mini refrigerator would be nice, but it's not that big of a deal.
The location PERIOD. Unfriendly staff, room not stocked for our arrival, dirty bathroom, hotel locked us out after 11pm; stood in rain for 25 minutes waiting on attendant.
Cheap Price Dirty looking comforter Did not bring fresh towels after first night Bathroom light didn't work Poor water pressure dirty entrance
Location was great but the hotel is a absolute rat hole!! The Photos On The Web Are NOT For for This HOtel Absolute rat hole!! This place was horrible. Floors were dirty, the beds were made up but the sheets were not changed from the visitors before me. Pizza boxes and molded food on the floor behind the bathroom door. hair still in the sink.
