The Marriott was nice enough to let my Web cast use their lobby for a small photo shoot. The bar down stairs food was excellent! The staff was courteous. The lighting was awesome. Very quiet and not too much traffic.

The hotel was really nice and we had a beautiful corner room. Lobby is very pretty and the breakfast buffet was very good. The location was near to campus and liked the area it was in. Close to restaurants and felt safe.

I very much enjoyed my stay. Everything was so clean; the furnishings were in excellent shape; the linens were crisp and cozy; and the bed was heavenly. The staff was so friendly and helpful. They truly seemed to be happy to help with any questions. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Rooms are the average full service Marriott...nothing to get excited about, but the staff were fabulous! Room service staff and food were excellent and the concierge lounge was huge... lots of seating, food was all fresh and attendant was so friendly.

This is a sad, old Marriott in desperate need of a wrecking ball. We upgraded to the 'Romance' package; don't bother, checked in hours ago & no champagne to be seen. Our room has a filthy concrete balcony overlooking rooftops and the room needed new carpet about 5 years ago. The room is damp and musty, the bathroom is in...

I needed a bit of office center help and forgot some basic supplies. Sharlene and Vicki jumped in to assist me with smiles. This hotel is my go to on any Columbia visit. The property is great but the people are even better!

We stay at the downtown Marriott when we participate in the Run Hard Columbia Half Marathon and 5K road races. The 10-minute walk to the start line alone is worth the price. Factor in the complimentary parking as a hotel guest (at a $12 daily rate) and you have additional value. A covered walkway takes you from the Sumter St....

I stayed here about a week ago and at first my reservation had been overlooked, but within no time the problem was solved and they found me a great room. The service here was great and the people working kept calm the entire time, even though I was a bit upset that I didn't have a room. I would definitely...

This was our first stay at the Columbia Marriott. We found it to be a very nice hotel. We checked in on the mobile app so when we got to the hotel we were all set. The only problem was that they had us booked for two doubles when I requested a king. Sharlene was very accommodating in making sure...

This was my first time staying at the Columbia Marriott for a business trip. When I got to the front desk they could not find my reservation. The front desk person was very helpful, as was the manager. They called around to some of the other hotels to make sure that I did not have reservations at those places. They...
