This 16 story Sheraton property is located two blocks from the state house…Rooms are big city sized which means a bit small, but are decorated in a classic style and are well maintained. The entire staff is excellent, and tries to make sure the guests are satisfied. Parking is off site and about A five minute walk away..but valet service...

Went there for a business trip, ok hotel, reasonable checking and sizable rooms (with of course old carpet), cleaniliness ok, just everything is old (sockets, carpet, furniture, etc) If you took the elevator, you had to push three times to get it started, heard some people say, it is always a wonder if it actually brings you to the right...

This is a Sheraton with character and nice, bright rooms with a spacious shower and well lit vanity. The rooms are well appointed in white and light grey with dark wood floors. It's a comfortable room so 2 people aren't tripping over each other. There's a full service Starbucks in the basement. It's around the corner from the capitol and...

We stayed here for a concert at y see Auditorium. Columbia itself is a great city, plenty of things to do downtown, all within walking distance of the hotel. Our room was beautiful. Definitely updated, but one could certainly see the history peeking through. My only complaint was the noise outside our room, as the doors were not soundproof at...

When routed off Interstate 95 due to hurricane Matthew, I ended up at the Sheraton Columbia Downtown simply because it took me 12 hours to drive what should have taken 4 and I'd had enough for the day. It was a great location in the center of town, just down the street from the capital building and within a brief...

A very old Sheraton, both the overall building (an old bank, complete with vault in the lobby) and the decor...at least two iterations ago. Given it's age, not surprisingly my room was full of nooks and crannies and Sheraton had incorporated some creative use of the available space. I liked the painted exposed wood flooring and area rug look. Charming....
