They did not have the room ready 3 hours after check-in time. Other guests said they were waiting upwards of 4-5 hours to check in. No complimentary beverages while we waited. Disappointing experience. Beautiful looking hotel, but we couldn't wait that long so we cancelled and went to a competitor.

Mike, we appreciate you taking the time to share your candid feedback on your recent visit with us. I completely understand your frustration during your check in experience. Unfortunately, our main laundry washer unit became inoperable at the worst date and time possible. We called several companies for emergency weekend service and only received one reply. Late afternoon Sunday, they were able to get onsite but were not able to repair and they had to wait until Monday morning to purchase parts needed. On such a busy weekend for the University move in and over 80% of the rooms departing on Sunday and the same percentage arriving same day, it was a significant blow to our operations. We understand the impact it placed on our arriving guests and we sincerely appreciate our guests patience while we all worked diligently to prepare the rooms. We do hope that you will visit again on your next travels to Columbia. We hope you have a wonderful summer and stay well.

Disappointed that the room did not have cups and that the ice maker was out of order due to COVID. Otherwise, very pleased with our stay and the service.
