Thank you for choosing the Columbia Marriott.

First, I had requested a double bed room, we got a single king size bed. The front desk would not assist with a price adjustment and gave attitude when trying rectify the situation. We were just pushed aside stating that it was Travelocity's fault, even with the confirmation email with us showing the double bed reservation. Second, the room was dingy, the bathroom door wouldn't even shut and hallways were loud at all hours of the night.

Not worth the Money

My husband and I stayed over the University of South Carolina's Parent weekend. Prices were jacked up. I t cost us over $600 a night. The coffee pot didn't work, the soap holder on tub was moldy. We didn't even get breakfast as some guests did. Breakfast was an additional $15/pp. Outright rip off.

Wonderful staff, great food

Pros: Service, location, parking, dining
Cons: Find a way to decrease the noise that can be heard in the rooms.
Location: It is conveniently located to USC and very easy to get around.
The staff was so friendly I wanted to take them all home. The location was very convenient to USC. The food is wonderful, but the portions are, if this is a complaint, too large. That being said, this is, quite possibly the noisiest hotel I've ever stayed in. We could hear the elevator "ding" for each call and could hear every conversation being had while people waited for the elevator. Also, the doors slam and shake the entire floor.

Nice hotel close to USC and Vista area of Columbia

Pros: location, rooms, lobby
Cons: lobby bar service
Location: walking distance to Vista area of Columbia. Great place to stay if you're dropping off/visiting your kids at USC.
Good location, nice staff, rooms are clean, great lobby. Service at the lobby bar is slow.

Pros: The staff was extraordinary
Cons: The pool area
Location: local USC campus, and district area with a variety of restaurants and bars
We had a wonderful experience at the Hotel. The staff was extraordinarly helpful, generous, and professional. They went out of their way to accomodate us with directions and also offered us personal rides in the shuttle when the taxi reservation the hotel made never showed up. We could not have asked for a better experience on our trip.
