I was in Columbia with my parents for my father to have a routine procedure done at the VA hospital. However, a surprise emergency arose, and my mother and I found that we needed to stay an additional night in the area. I realized that I had an e-certificate that I had earned through my Marriott's Reward Member Program that...

Very well kept property. Nice rooms. It was noisy from the vehicles on the street,but other than that a great place to stay. Has an indoor pool which opened at 6am and closed late. Breakfast had fresh fruit, cereal, and a couple of hot food options. Coffee, tea, and hot chocolate were available all day.

Light-filled and sparkling clean rooms with amenities like beverage maker, premium toiletries,an ironing board, iron, extra toilet paper holders, a modern sitting area, extra blankets, all help a weary traveler to relax in style. The bed is amazingly comfortable. Rooms facing Lady Street are quieter despite being downtown. The staff is friendly and professional. ( Good morale and great attitudes)...

Two adults and teen daughter stayed here in December for a post-Christmas college tour. Lady at check-in was super nice and even told us the regular rate was cheaper than the government rate so we switched the rate. We are platinum elite but that doesn't give you much at a SHS but we did opt for the extra points instead...

We stayed at Springhill Suites in Columbia to attend the U of SC graduation ceremonies. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and accommodating with all of our needs. The staff in the mornings putting out the delicious buffet were also amazing. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area.
