3/5

The property is in a convenient location for those visiting central Columbia. But, the guest rooms are poorly equipped: the bed in our room was unaccountably high above floor level, making it difficult to get in and out of bed. The desk was also very high, and any person of normal stature using it for work or as a dining table would find it very awkward. There was no sort of table in the room, and when a room service meal was delivered, it should have arrived on a rolling table but didn't. The walls of the room lacked any picture or other decoration, giving the room all the warmth and charm of a hospital. The hotel's restaurant was closed for renovation, and anyone wishing to order a meal had to seek it in the bar off the lobby, a grubby little bar that resembles someone's basement that is in need of redecoration. In the bathroom of our room, No. 804, faucets that control the flow of water in the shower were in a poor state of repair and lacked any indication of how to select "hot" or "cold" water. When we checked into Room 804, it had no remote control to operate the TV; we had to ask the staff search for one elsewhere in the building. The good news is that the staff were friendly and eager to be helpful, but overall the Sheraton Columbia Downtown is overpriced and awkwardly furnished. We would not recommend this hotel in its present condition. It was built in 1937 and subsequent attempts at modernization have not brought it up to 21st century standards.
