Great location

Hotel staff was helpful and friendly. GREAT location!! Only two complaints: chlorine in pool was too strong, $12 a night for parking was an unexpected expense.

Long weekend in columbia

Nice stay at the Hilton. Walking distance to lots of restaurants and bars. Close to USC. Only downside was you had to pay for parking.

Good Stay in Columbia SC

Columbia is not much except for a college town. This hotel is located close to galleries and small shops, historic sites, restaurants, and clubs...all within walking distance. The hotel is not fancy but was clean and nice rooms,and had friendly staff as well. Ruth's Chris restaurant in lobby is great food and service and less expensive if ordering small plates and appetizers or salads in bar. Parking is the only downside in public level parking lot that does have direct access to hotel but is not free, shared and very large. Valet parking was more costly.

Very good hotel

This is an excellent hotel in downtown Columbia. It is centrally located, near plenty of restaurants, with one of the best inside. Rooms are very clean and well apportioned. The staff was particularly helpful, and helped us to find everything we needed in the city. Well done to the front desk staff!

Great location to visit USC

We were there for orientation at USC. This is the 2nd time we were there. It is always enjoyable, a great location, very clean, nice employees and, of course, we love Ruth's Chris.
