“Could not have been any better ....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

Our son competed in the Big 12 Swimming Men's Conference and we actually could walk to the University and watch the competition. This place was amazing on every level ... the rooms, ambiance, staff. and price. It was a real treat to stay here and we cannot say enough nice things about the place. It was a real find and a completely wonderful experience.

Room Tip: The Textile Suite and Literatue Suite were amazing.

I was lucky to get a room (the beautifully appointed Wildlife Conservation room) on short notice when travelling into town for a basketball game. I was particularly interested as it is owned by the College of Agriculture as a Capstone course for their Hotel and Restaurant Mangement students. And those young men and women all deserve A's. It is horrendously convenient to campus and downtown, quiet and peaceful despite of that, and has every amenity you could think of. They even let me park my car there before check-in, which was very kind as I know space is always limited. My room's linens and decor were top notch, and the seating area was a perfect escape from the cold (and a great alternative to a regular hotel room's ubiquitous club chair in the corner.) I enjoyed a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit salad, Belgian waffles, eggs, toast, and sausage. My table-mates, a couple who were return customers, and I all admitted that we felt guilty that we couldn't finish it all. There is wi-fi available, and there was a flat-screen television in my room. The woodwork and windows are beautiful, and the entire property decorated with both beauty and comfort and in mind. I had a wonderful stay (could you tell?) and hope to stay there again in the future.

Room Tip: The website has true-to-life pictures and descriptions of each room.

From the beautiful outdoor holiday decorations to the elegant tree in the living room, from the welcoming attention of Deb to her surprise treat after the performance at Jesse Hall, from the gorgeous presentation and delicious flavors of breakfast, every detail of our stay was perfect. The Gathering Place brings a bit of peace to hectic lives.

Room Tip: The room on the first floor requires no steps.

Outstanding choice in Columbia (maybe the best!) -- adjacent to University, just across the
street from the Physics building -- short walk downtown to the heart of the city and good
restaurants. Easy access with parking. Rooms are wonderful and spacious, and surely
make you wish that you could just settle in and stay for awhile. Breakfast is good and ample
though coffee could be stronger. All in all, just first-rate!
