I was recently in town for the Banzaicon anime convention, and once again the Hampton Inn Downtown Historic District was my lodging preference for the weekend. I've stayed here for my trips to Columbia conventions since 2014, and there's a number of reasons I keep returning.
This is a hotel I can always count on for clean, well maintained rooms, friendly service, a filling breakfast, and a convenient location close to the convention center where my events are held. I haven't had any problems yet, and I've enjoyed every visit here. It can get expensive, but that's probably due to the location. One caveat - parking cost is now $15/night, so factor that into your rate (you might be able to park for free at the convention center lot if you're here for an event held there, but it's on the other side of the convention center from the hotel.)
The Hampton Inn in downtown Columbia is an excellent hotel that I've been able to count on for years. If you need a place to stay in the downtown area (including convention center events), this is the ideal hotel.More
