Excellent hotel, nice rooms, wonderful ambience, great location near lots of restaurants in Vista. Stayed here several times, and always come away impressed. Ruth Chris is the on-site restaurant, and we all know how good the food.

This place would definitely be a five star but.... I stayed here for 3 nights on the 6th floor facing the front of the building. All night, every night there was something that sounded like someone using a leaf blower ... ALL NIGHT! I have no other complaints other than this noise. Staff was very pleasant and the rooms are...

The hotel was ight by the capital and by the convention center. Easy walking distance to the vista restaurants and coffee shops. Ruth Chris steakhouse located in building. Capital building literally steps away.

It's OK but could be a lot better. If you don't ask you will probably get stuck in a room overlooking the parking garage, which is not a nice view. We asked for a late check-out (+1 hr) and they said no, which tells you something about this place. Had a bad experience at the breakfast buffet, I'd recommend heading...

The hotel was very pretty and clean but the check in staff in the lobby were not very helpful or friendly. The staff were more interested in talking and texting on their cell phones than checking us in. On the other hand, the housekeeping staff were friendly and more helpful with our questions and direction giving.

Travel to Columbia once or twice annually and always stay at the Hilton Columbia Center located in the Vista area of Downtown.

Great location if attending concert at arena/tin roof/music farm,easy walking distance. A bit overpriced. Style of decor is upscale but faux tuscan/georgian circa 2000 style, more classical/traditional than modern. Was clean and staff very friendly/helpful. For the price, should have real creamer at coffee station rather than the thimble sized pre packaged gross stuff. Not to mention that at Hyatt...
