Best hotel in Columbia... except for the parking.

This hotel is located in the center of Downtown within easy walk of Main St and Vista restaurants and businesses. The downstairs and roof bars are a great amenity. The only downside is that they don't have any parking onsite, so if you're driving, you may have to wait for the valet on the way in and out. It's a tolerable process.

The stay was amazing. The rooms was very warm and welcoming. The hotel is in a great location if you want to take advantage of Columbia nightlife. The room view to downtown Columbia was a bonus.

A Pleasant Stay

Driving home from FL to Oh is quite the a track. Finding a pleasant place to overnight was just what we were looking for. We've always been satisfied with Sheraton hotels, so we thought we'd give this one a try. We are so very happy we did! It was downtown, clean, quaint, had character & the staff was polite & friendly. Although not my favorite type of "heavenly" matress. The bed was quite comfortable. The continental breakfast came with the room we stayed in. Their buffet offered: scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, bagels, pastries & oatmeal. Which was enough for us. We enjoyed what was offered, except for the scrambled eggs. They had an awkward taste & smell. All & all we really enjoyed our stay and If we'd had the time, we would've stay another day. It was definitely worth the price. And we will.go back!

Great romantic night in the town

The location of the Sheraton was great, we walked everywhere even with the light drizzle of rain. The staff was friendly and the bars/restaurants were nice. My only problem was the room was cramped because the bed was almost too big for the room and our fridge was broken... Other than that, it was perfect

Rooftop bar was not a quiet casual bar but it was fun. Get there early if you want a seat overlooking the view.

Could be better

We had a group of folks that stayed here for an extended period of time. The first week was great, however after that things just didn't went down. Members in my group had issues with their rooms not being cleaned, keys that would not work, dirty dishes left all day in the hall way. There just doesn't seem to be any attention to detail - even in the public areas. There were missing pieces of tile at the elevator entrances and the chairs in the restaurant were dirty. Most of the staff are very helpful and repeatedly apologized for the situations that we encountered. The club floor needs some work - food was very inconsistant especially for what you pay for a club floor room. The staff are terrific - LOVE CEDRIC, but they can only work with what they have.

Anniversary

It was OK, didn't blow me away. It was clean and in a good location, but shouldn't all hotels be? The pictures you used to sell me on the hotel were much nicer than the hotel itself. The rooms in the pictures had a real cozy feel with a fire place. Our room was as plain as it gets.

Not worth it...

The rooms have a nice 1930's feel but it does not make up for thetereinle service the hotel has. I took my wife here for our five year anniversary thinking it would be really fun and amazing however the best part of the night was the valet. (which costs an extra $25) our room was nice but there was food in the garbage can and mini fridge. I called down to guest services 3 times in a three hour period to come clean it up but they never did. I finally put it out in the hall only to wake up in the morning to see it still laying there. I also requested chocolate strawberries be sent to our room at 2300. This never got done but was on my bill!!! After the horrible night there I will never be going back. There are better hotels in the area for less with better services.
