I had the opportunity to spend 9 days at the Courtyard by Marriott in Columbia. My friend invited me to visit Columbia while he was working in Emergency Management, not a place I knew well. The hotel was a wonderful respite in the time of turmoil of flooding and tornados.
As mentioned by other reviews the staff are fantastic, many of the staff have been their since it opened many years ago and you get the family feeling as they are a close knit staff. Given I don't drive in America so I was virtually limited to the hotel and surrounds during the day. The breakfast was something I looked forward to each day, a small buffet, but a good choice of healthy food and the choice of hot breakfast changed daily. The coffee was great and the coffee bar was open 24 hours. If you are around the hotel at 4.00pm look for the warm cookies at the reception desk, they go quickly! For exercise I really enjoyed the indoor swimming pool and spa pool. Just next to the pool is a courtyard with comfortable lounges and umbellas and tables and chairs, it was a great place to relax and mix with other guests over a cold beer, I meet so many interesting people. The rooms were clean and very comfortable and the house keepers where excellent in providing any extra's you needed for the room. When it was time to leave it was difficult to leave the "staff family" as they looked after me so well during my stay.
