The beds wasn’t comfortable and I’m pretty sure the hotel said heated pool and it was freezing, the pool was one of the main reasons I picked this hotel.

Property is in a very central location with many options for dining in a walkable vicinity....paying to self park though is a bit much and can’t quite understand why it is so expensive??

Great breakfast selection and well prepared food. Room was clean with good furnishings. Excellent location downtown, a couple of blocks to the state capitol building and adjacent resturants. If you have a room facing the street, there is a bit of traffic noise until 10pm.

Great location for our needs. Comfortable room and easy checkin/checkout.

Check in was easy, staff was very nice. Room was clean. Bathroom door is a sliding glass door which did not latch or lock. 2 lamps did not turn on. Fridge was on high but everything was luke warm by morning. We informed staff of lights and latch as we went to dinner. Staff said they might be able to change the light bulbs but probably wouldn't be until the following day. We were checking out the following day. At checkout we informed staff of all the issues. She gave us free parking, which was very nice of her.

Everyone was VERY professional, kind and pleasant.

location was perfect, surrounded of the best restaurants of the city

Love the location and the front desk staff was very friendly.

I loved the location of the hotel!!! We could walk to Starbucks and see the State House from our hotel!

Comfy bed. Clean. AC ran well and got perfectly cold.

They charge $14 per day to self park your car in their parking lot. You can stay at the Hilton a block over with free parking. Not worth the parking cost to stay there.

Very good breakfast (complimentary for rewards members,), perfect location for visiting downtown, excellent staff. Paid parking lot, but on-street parking might be option at least overnight (unsure about meter hours). Note, parking and check in face Lady Street. Not Gervais.

The room was great. The staff was helpful and friendly, the breakfast was excellent. It was in an excellent location for seeing Columbia and minutes away from the many colleges in Columbia.

The staff was very friendly. I arrived very late at night and I was still greeted with a smile and a great attitude. The room was very clean.

All staff were fri ndly and helpful. It was located in a great spot for restaurants and shops. The pillows and bed are to die for.

Great location, easy check in and parking. Staff was very helpful.

Thank you for your feedback! We do offer our signature Hyatt Grand Beds in every room. We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy our bedding. We do have an heated indoor pool and normally keep it heated at 85 degrees. This week we up that temperature 90 degrees and guests seem to be more satisfied with this. Our apologies.
