Rated 5 out of 5 by Jamee72 Home away from home
The staff and service really make a difference! I am sure there are those that stay more than I but when I walk in I am often greeted by my first name?! They remember you and I think that makes for a big difference!

Durng my 3 night stay, the phones did not work (first two days), no wake up call, and no TV or internet on the second day, yet, I paid the same rate as if they were working? What should that be? My over charge for room service was corrected. Thank you!! The pool was closed at 6:00 pm, so could not be used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MssyLou Great staff; great room; great location
Front desk staff was outstanding; Melissa went out of her way to make the hotel feel like home. Room was great - wonderful view of the lake and the peaceful setting. Room service staff and food was outstanding. Excellent visit - would recommend the Sheraton in Columbia, MD to all those coming to the area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stork Great stay at hotel
Everyone at the hotel from front desk and concierge lounge, were very friendly and helpful. The hotel atmosphere is very friendly and conducive to business as well as socializing. Breakfast was only meal I had there and was more than adequate.
Will stay at this hotel again if doing business in the aea.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TJ46 Charge for rollaway bed
Included in the charge for the room is a $25 charge for a roll-away bed. Never mind that I didn't request one or need one. I protested the charge, and after two days I was assured it would be removed.
The charge is bogus in my opinion, and the fact that it took two days to resolve is not acceptable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by goaliemom Rooms were seedy and dirty
There was chipped paint and the room had an odor to it. I called to the front desk asking where the fitness center was. When i went to the fitness ctr the next morning it was closed due to flooding. That was not shared with me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NewCanaanHector Home away from home, as usual
We stay at this hotel a number of times every year because we go to sporting events nearby.
It is always a pleasure to arrive at the hotel and be treated like a person, even when arriving late.
A specially important factor is the excellent breakfast buffet.
Thanks for a great stay!

The toilet in 811 needs to be replaced,,,,It was terrible....it did flush at all...and the handle practically fell off in my hand...
Ordered room service and it was so late and cold....The test of a good kitchen is when the hotel is busy not when its empty....and this was an epic FAIL!

Rated 1 out of 5 by kathemil Scary Hotel
I was sent down to Lodge #3 at 8:30 at night and was never so scared in my life! It was dark - no lighting, I was on the 2nd floor and had to drag my suitcase up the stairs due to no elevators. I had to go down a long dark hallway and was petrified. Couldn't sleep cause I did not feel safe.

Rated 3 out of 5 by usedtolivethere Lobby noisy all night
The fan would not stay on to white out the music playing in the lobby all night.
Room was supposed to have a microwave and refrigerator but it was not built in but had to be specifically requested and then delivered. Staff tried to be nice but it seemed to be hard and not sure why.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sister Great staff but facilities need improvement
No trash can or easy access outlets to charge phones. No vent in bathroom leaving room too steamy. The coffee in room was horrible..maybe stale? No elevator in our section, not good for elderly or people with physical disabilities. Food and service was excellent but food was a bit pricey

Rated 4 out of 5 by RDW12345 Not the Room Service
The hotel was really nice. The employees were wonderful. Then, on Sat night I ordered room service. Specifically I ordered Prime Rib (the special). It was overcooked, fatty (beyond what is acceptable) and well overpriced. I would stay at the hotel again and just go elsewhere for dinner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lini83 This hotel is very comfortable
The staff is friendly and the room is very comfortable. I think all Sheraton hotel walls are very thin so it seem to be a bit noisy in the morning when everyone is moving about the hallways but overall this is a great place to lodge its close to lots of things to occupy yourself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by garym Conference Meeting stay
1. The internet was terrible for multiple participants attending the meeting.
2. The staff failed to order a taxi the night before and caused unnecessary problems early the following morning.
If it was wasn't for these items I would have been highly please with my stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NewCanaanHector As excellent as ever
This hotel is our home away from home in the DC area.
We stay often and we always have good experiences.
Breakfast is epic at the buffet.
Walking around the pond is always a stress reliever.
Staff is always on top of things.
Consistently meets and exceeds our expectations.

I really appreciate the help from the Sheraton Staff. LA always take great care of me in reserving rooms and dynamically when I need anything. Pinar is consistent in her great service at the bar. I would grade all of the associates as strong, but LA and Pinar are the best.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kjohnPT Dependable service, consistent performance
I use this property several times throughout the year for family members coming from out of town and business guests. Time after time, the quality of staff is excellent. The recently renovated facilities are an added bonus. The only thing it is lacking is an indoor pool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Riggo Good stay
We were very happy with the hotel facilities, staff, and shuttle to Merriweather Post Pavilion. The only complaint that we had was when left in the morning, the hallway from our room to the lobby as well as the parking lot was littered with pizza boxes and beer cans.

I stayed with a corporate rate but i was told that the breakfast was not free... I was very curious because i always ate when i stayed at the hotel.. I asked a front man when i checked out and i was told it was free. Please make staff's understanding consistent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WCtraveler2013 Older Property, but comfortable
The room was a nice size. The linens were clean and comfortable. The rooms in the Lodge require a good bit of walking and no elevator, but each has a microwave and refrigerator. The staff was friendly. I enjoyed the food, but my taste runs to simple and basic.

I have stayed at this hotel over 10 times this past year and have always had a pleasurable experience. The staff is beyond courteous, the rooms always clean and the beds comfortable. I highly recommend this Sheraton and look forward to returning.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Perk20 Dead bugs on window sill
I attended a retreat at the sheraton in Columbia, the weekend of the Columbia Mall shooting. The first room I checked into had a strong ordor and the carpet and the arm chair were heavily stained. The young lady at the front desk moved me to the room directly below the first room and it too had the same wretched ordor but cleaner carpets and no soiled chairs. Next morning I went to open the curtain and discovered at least three dead bugs on the window sill, on their backs with their little legs straight up in the air. I reported the ordor issue, the soiled chair and carpet issue and the dead bugs to the manager on duty before I checked out and the hotel still charged me full price for the room. The manager gave me the impression that he was going to see what could be done and get back to me. When I checked out I misread my reciept and thought that he had decided to not charge me for the room so I thanked him for being sensitive to how gross it was to see dead bugs in your window before that first cup of coffee. Upon check out the manager on duty received my thanks and gratitude but never let on that he had done nothing to address the bug issue in the form of compensation. I recently disputed the charge because my thought was that the charge was expensed to my card in error but I soon found out after my credit card company and I contacted the hotel that the manager had not logged the issue nor had he. taken any steps to secure my future business. I am currently waiting to hear from hotel management.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CTdead Plumbing needs upgrade
Hotel location was great (few blocks from merriweather). Room was nice and furniture was very comfortable. Plumbing in the room was not adequate. Tub did not drain and toilet would run after flushing. This was not what I expected from a sheraton facility.

I haven't stayed in a hotel where I'm not at top loyalty status in quite awhile, but I have to say that I really enjoyed my stay here. The hotel location is great and the staff was extremely efficient and accommodating. I will definitely stay there again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Loopole I stay in this hotel a number of time during the year.
I like this hotel very much. However, this particular was not as good as before. My room had a musty smell which I assume is from the construction going on for the water leaks. My dirty linen was not taken away when my room was cleaned on the last day.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Loki911 Your standard Sheraton ruined by its staff
Been staying here for weeks and unfortunately will keep doing so because its convenience trumps the negatives for me. Some if the staff are great, but when you have a front desk manager that has no concept of guest service, the experience is ruined.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kimberly1122 Great Club!
It seems like more and more Sheraton's are going to very skimpy Club Lounges, especially over the weekends.
This Sheraton has a great club, even on the weekend, with quality food items, really enjoy this hotel.
Staff professional and very nice.
