Clean, comfortable room, good service. One day housekeeping came late and told us they were only providing towel service. Was not a big deal but was surprised...perhaps they were short staffed. Otherwise the staff was friendly and the front desk was great. Love the location,,,easy for business or shopping or restaurants.

Towel, hair dryer and toilet paper are located too close to lavatory pan. It was not considered about Widdle splash, enough. It should be considered more about cleanliness at bathroom. Otherwise could not use towel.

Hotel was very nice. The proximity to the downtown restaurants was nice but the additional cost was not worth the additional cost. Did not know that they had breakfast available in the hotel. Dinner selection was very limited - Ruth Crist Steakhouse - a little pricey.

The hotel was okay; however, we were very disappointed after paying for the room when we arrived at the counter we were told we had to pay an addition almost $13.00 for parking. Parking should be complimentary after paying a tremendous amount of money for a room that we were only sleeping in during the night because we were there on business and had to leave before day break in the morning. I understand that it is a business and they have to make a profit to continue to maintain their business; ... Read more

Excellent location near The Vista, the University of SC, and the historical sites of the city. The hotel is ideally located to all the best known restaurants of Columbia including Ruth's Chris which is in the hotel and serves an excellent breakfast buffet.

This hotel has become our go-to spot when we visit our son at the University of South Carolina. It's convenient and the rooms are nice. The big draw is that the hotel houses Ruth's Chris and we like the bar! It's a great gathering spot at the end of the day to relax or to catch a sporting event on their TV. The service is friendly and I recommend it to all friends visiting Columbia. I look forward to being there in just under 2 weeks.

Plus, there are a number of good places to eat within walking distance too. Free WiFi. Two bottles of water in your room every day. Recommended!

Room was exactly what you expect from the Hilton. Nice little pool area that you can hang out in pretty late. Most bars are within walking distance, but if you just can't hoof it, a $5 Uber ride. The Gamecocks working the front desk royally screwed up when charging us for our rooms. maybe a fluke, but the kid charged me almost $400 for a $160 room. We got it worked out, but had to spend some time on the phone that next Monday with Hilton Customer Service.

The hotel is located downtown Columbia in the "vista". The rooms are great and I especially was impressed how quickly my room was cleaned daily. My only complaint is I left my little girls dress in the closet upon checkout and they said they didn't have it. It could not have disappeared in 24 hrs but hey I learned my lesson. Parking is 12$ a day/24$ for valet. I would rather park my car as the valet guys were pretty rude. The pool area is very nice as well. Hotel is very clean.

Good location for walking to attractions and restaurants in downtown Columbia. This hotel was nice enough, but I experienced unresolved issues with the bathroom in my guest room. Parking is not included as part of the rate, even though the garage has an entrance into the hotel. Also, breakfast is not included unless you are a diamond or platinum HHonors member. At the room rate that I paid per night, all of these items should have been included.

Room rates seem high for a small city like Columbia, and the Ruth's Chris Steakhouse as the only in-house eatery is definitely at the high end of the scale. No coffee shop or other moderately priced breakfast place in the building. My room was clean, but I expect all hotel rooms to be clean, so that's not special or justification for a nearly $200/night price. The problem with the room, as well as with at least one adjoining room, was a continuous humming noise like the sound a failing fluoresce... Read more

A rather new and fresh hotel in Columbia downtown. Nice and friendly staff. Stayed in the corner suite with a nice view towards Senate and downtown. Good gym with good equipment. Internet was not very fast, but sufficient. There is a steakhouse on property, but I did not very it yet. Looks pricy, but perhaps worth try someday. The hotel is connected to parking house, and offers decent parking prices, 12 USD/night for a self park. Plenty of dining options just minutes walk from the hotel.

Overall the hotel is very nice and in a good location. My only problem was that I occupied the hotel with two rooms during a hurricane evacuation and they were going to elevate the weekend rate on my rooms by $150 each for the game weekend. After talking to the manager she agreed to keep the rate the same. One day they could not provide maid service because they were short of staff. Sheets were not changed during the 5 day stay.
