We stayed at the Sheraton Columbia Downtown this past weekend. We were in town for the East Carolina/USC Football game. We checked in and were put in a room on the 14TH Floor directly across from the ice machine. We called down and spoke to Adrian and she immediately rectified the situation and moved us to a different room. The...

The address is Main Street, but it is best to circle the block and unload on Washington Street in front of the main entrance. To self park you then need to make a right on Main Street and then first right to find the joint Mariott-Sheraton and public parking garage. You can save half the parking fee by paying Sheraton...

This historic hotel was built in 1913, as the Palmetto Building and housed a bank. The hotel has preserved the original hardwood flooring, woodwork, and tile mosaics. We utilized the Sheraton as our host hotel for rooms for a class reunion. We utilized the venue across the street for our event (1208 Washington Place) as the Sheraton does not have...

I really enjoyed the Sheration, it's just what a girl needs for a night out on the town. Everything with the hotel room was excellent. Parking is a bit tricky, I suggest a walkway from the parking garage to the hotel be built ASAP... I would stay again.

Convenient location, hotel is in a clean and well maintained building. Nice reception area. Staff were friendly and helpful. Comfortable bed and modern bathroom with nice decor in room. Facilities were adequate and met our needs while we had to attend a function in the area. Would stay here again.

We had a nice double room with comfortable linens. It was on the 9th floor and very quiet. I liked the beautiful tile floor and the bank vault martini bar in the lobby. It is very centrally located and you can walk to delicious restaurants and fun night life!

We were there for a wedding. The doorman gave us the wrong directions to the parking garage and wasn't friendly or helpful. There were no signs in the garage to the Sheraton entrance.

Very old hotel with good service and a very nice room. We really enjoyed our room and if you are into the feel of an older facility, such as creaky floors, it is great. The bathroom was very nice and even had a TV in it. The rooftop bar is also cool.
