After a long day at work, there is nothing better than going to the club lounge and feeling at home. Cedric always welcomes the guests with a pleasant attitude, offers beverages and provides details about the menu. He always makes me feel very special! I just need to sit down and relax. Every time that I go to the Club...

I love what they did to make this hotel. Took a beautiful old office/bank building and turned it into a hotel. 4 rooms per floor, beautifully decorated, clean as can be. Have a drink in the bar...the old safe! Food in restaurant was so-so. Very friendly staff. If you go to see the Capital this is a few blocks away....

This place used to an old bank, so it has an interesting setup inside. The rooms are par for the course with your typical Sheraton. Centrally located in Columbia, with lots of areas in walking distance. The hotel can be a little difficult to navigate due to the aforementioned layout, however it makes for a unique experience and I'd make...

As usual- I was in town on business and needed a place to stay for a couple nights. A friend recommended the Sheraton and I'm glad she did. The property used to be a bank. The rooms are decent sized and well appointed. Beds are perfect. My favorite parts are the rooftop bar and the vault lounge.

I stay at the Sheraton downtown Columbia on a weekly basis. The highlight of my stay is the special customer service that Cedric provides at the Club Lounge. He is like a neighbor that you see walking down the street. He provides all of the comforts of your own home and is a stellar Sheraton employee. He is exceptional.

We wanted to stay somewhere close to the University of South Carolina for a college visit. It was a great location. It was a fully restored older hotel. Very historic. Loved the room finishing and restored wooden floors. Water pressure was very low in the morning. Other than that, was a great stay.
