My family and I spent two nights here when we evacuated for the Hurricane and it was really bad. When we arrived we were informed that the room with two beds that we had booked was not available and all that they had for us was a room with a single king bed. They offered us a second room, but...

Great location in downtown Columbia and the staff was very friendly. I was so hoping for a positive experience but our one night stay was peppered with disappointments; restaurant under staffed, no hot water in the shower, TV remote control not working and room was dusty. In the morning, I expressed my concerns to the front desk and asked that...

Staff here was very friendly, and the lobby looks really modern. My room was oddly shaped. There was no way to sit at the desk because it was so close to the bed. The bathroom was updated, although the mirror did cover the one outlet in the bathroom. This hotel is convenient to campus and other downtown attractions at least....

Let me begin by saying I frequently travel to Columbia. I booked the Sheraton for three weekends this fall for the Carolina football games. However, I had to cancel two of them prior to this stay. I was returning to Charleston on Sunday after being evacuated due to Hurricane Matthew. I had to work the following Monday in Dillon, SC,...

From the minute you enter the Sheraton Columbia you are welcomed by a warm and inviting staff. Adrian and Renee were gracious and accommodating. It was especially appreciated given our stay was a result of hurricane Matthew. The hotel's architecture is beautiful, an old bank from what I can tell. The rooms are spacious and well kept. The hotel is...

Staff were nice, but they didn't have enough cribs so my baby niece had to sleep on the floor surrounded by pillows. Housekeeping took our towels but didn't replace with new ones, we had to call twice to get some delivered. Club lounge is ok but they didn't open it on time one day. I think they just need some...

Our daughter goes to USC and we have stayed in several places around Columbia during our visits. My wife and I had never stayed right downtown so we had heard the Sheraton had a nice view form the top and had always thought of "Sheraton" as a top brand in the space. So we booked a weekend there and the...

Rooms are clean, staff is fabulous, and the location is excellent. This historic property has preserved hardwood flooring, tile, and built-in wood work. It's charming and elegant. This property will be my go to location for travel to South Carolina going forward.

I was apprehensive about staying here after seeing some negative reviews but had enough points to stay two 2 free nights to attend the first home football game of the season. I decided not to pay extra for an upgrade to Club Level. The hotel was at capacity so I was ready for some issues. The opposite was true, we...

We stayed at the Sheraton Columbia Downtown this past weekend. We were in town for the East Carolina/USC Football game. We checked in and were put in a room on the 14TH Floor directly across from the ice machine. We called down and spoke to Adrian and she immediately rectified the situation and moved us to a different room. The...
