Rated 2 out of 5 by Columbia87 Sheraton Downtown Columbia, SC
By far the worse Sheraton that I have ever stayed. I would not recommend this hotel if you are in the area. I had several hotels to choose from and I selected this one and it was a mistake.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DisappointedOhio Not at all what I expected
I've stayed in other Starwood Resorts before and have been very pleased. This is the first time I have stayed in a Sheraton (5 star#. I was not impressed whatsoever. The air conditioner would not lower and the bathroom was dirty. There was something blue running down the shower sides and the the tub would not drain #up to my ankles in dirty water). I noted these issues to the staff and left a card with my comments. The bed and the location were the best things about our stay. I was expecting so much more - especially for the price. I've stayed at 3 star hotels that were much cleaner and ejoyable. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JCHA A wonderful experience
We arrived very late and had driven a long way. Our family was hungry and although my husband and I were comfortable with eating the prepared sandwiches our son was not. The bartender at the hotel's Vault bar went to the kitchen and made him a sandwich that he would eat. What service. That service was an example of how this hotel accommodates their guests.
We fully enjoyed the club level lounge and the buffet breakfast finding the food tasty and well prepared. The evening buffet was as appetizing. We enjoyed the bar area in the basement and found the Rooftop Bar a wonderful place to see some of the city at night.
We fully intend on returning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mendou Hotel at the heart of Columbia
If you are looking at visiting Columbia and having everything at walking distance, then you should stay in this hotel. Me and my friends stayed there and restaurant/bar hopped almost every place on main strait. We also visited the state house which is just a minutes walk away. Overall would recommend the hotel. Only minus to the hotel right now is that there is some construction going on next to the hotel and you can hear the construction noise inside your room. The construction starts in the morning probably around 8am. If you wake up usually at 8am anyways, then this won't be a problem :).

This is a perfectly acceptable hotel, but is so completely overpriced...not a good value. I would not stay here unless I got a deeply discounted room deal, which we did. Certainly not worth the premium rates they normally charge. The room, while clean, was very small, loud with street noise and nothing special. When I called the hotel directly 4 days before my visit, I was promised that we could have a roll away bed for my daughter and they would move us to a bigger room to accommodate that request. When we arrived, there were no notes of the conversation on record and the hotel does not have roll away beds. They did get an air mattress for her, but it deflated and she slept on a hard wood floor.
That being said, Ray, the valet, went above and beyond the call duty, helping us unload our car and load a cart to take to my daughter's apartment next door. He was wonderful and service oriented.
Would stay again for the location, but only on a "deal". There are much better deals in town that offer more space, comfort with the same convenient location for a much lower rate.
