Came to Columbia for football game. Hotel was beautiful! Beds very comfortable. Bar was nice location except when they had musical entertainment. Very loud because bar is basically in lobby with no separation. Outside patio area was wonderful for sitting at night and people watching....More

Great welcoming bar, led by Anna who makes you feel right at home. Hotel is walking distance to all the best restaurants in Columbia, including Starbucks. Rooms are modern and clean. Great for business travel. Staff is very friendly.

Quality place to stay, and convenient. Close proximity to multiple restaurants. Staff was great, professional but clearly enjoyed interacting with patrons, particularly Taylor at the front desk. Will be back soon.
