Birthday weekend for my Brother-In-Law

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: The rooms are always quiet and the beds always comfortable. The hotel is in the center of town and we can walk everywhere with ease.
Cons: There was a mass of construction going on during our stay that made for many detours to get in/out of hotel, including the parking deck.
Location: Everything in walking distance - restaurants, beer halls, playhouse and shopping. Sat. Soda City Market outside of hotel - oh, the wonderful food!!
I always enjoy my stay at the Columbia Marriott.It is in the center of downtown and we are able to walk everywhere.

Quick Stop

Posted Jun 30, 2014
Pros: Staff was super friendly at every encounter.
Cons: The rooms are getting a little outdated but the main entrance and bar/dining areas were fantastic.
Very friendly staff. Greeted immediately by staff and we had a small glitch with our room ie.. wrong room and key didn't work. But we got it fixed right away. They gave us great advice on places to eat but we decided to stay and eat at the hotel and it was wonderful. Both the dinner and Breakfast were good and reasonable.

In the middle of downtown columbia

Posted May 18, 2014
It's was ok, the first room I had the shower curtain had mold on it so I head to change rooms and the second room they change me too on the 5th floor had an ugly view of trees blocking the downtown view but to accommodate me they gave me free breakfast at the resturant downstairs which was nice and fresh. Overall it was an ok stay !!

Excellent hotel!

Posted May 6, 2014
Pros: everything was exceptional
Cons: The lack of refrigeration in the room. The restaurant and lounge in the lobby is great, but an elevator ride every time you need a drink? Really!
Location: excellent location only about two blocks from the capital building and supreme court.
Great experience, definitely will stay again. The staff was exceptional, loved the convenience of the restaurant and lounge. Starbuck coffee served daily was great. The breakfast buffet was very delicious and extremely cheap.

Best of the Columbia, SC hotels.

Posted Apr 14, 2014
Cons: Beds - Marriott has newer more comfortable beds at many of its hotels. Columbia could use an upgrade.
Reasonable price considering the Masters golf tournament was going on that weekend. Staff is great, friendly and interested in you. Room is....well a Marriott. Which is to say it is consistently clean, comfortable and fairly new.

Room was pretty clean except the mold that was in the moist window sill. The pool area had no heat and I was told by the front desk that it had been that way for sometime. My grand kids were freezing!

Most Friendly Staff

Posted Jan 13, 2014
Pros: Friendly staff.
Cons: Keep it clean Get the door to match the frames.
Friendly staff members. Nice Lobby Comfortable beds. The room was not too clean: shower curtain was dirty and it was not clear if both beds were actually made. The door to the room did not match the door frame resulting in noise and light in the middle of the night. Strange smell we could not define. Since it was a weekend, we could use a public parking near byt.
