Rated 5 out of 5 by Robertdavid Sweet historic southern hotel.
A very nice hotel, indeed. Great recognition asa platinum memember with suite upgrade and vouchers for appetizers and drinks. Near to all that Columbia has to offer. Jerrica at the front desk was wonderful and a superb front person for the hotel and the Sheraton brand.

I WANT TO GIVE A BIG THANK YOU TO FREDDIE, at the Front Desk. I am a SPG member and I gave my daughter ( who is pregnant) and her husband ( who is military) a weekend get away. Even though they live in Fayetteville, NC, and I live in CA it was nice for them to get away.
Freddie was able to accommodate all of my request for my daughter and husband. Especially for the whirlpool tub, having the tub helped her back.
THanks you again Freddie. You lived up to the SPG Reputation….

Rated 5 out of 5 by Valygirl247 A Great Find with Friendly Staff!
This hotel is a great find! The rooms are clean and the staff is very friendly. I want to personally thank Jerrica and Danielle at the Front Desk for making our stay (with two small children) memorable. We will definitely be back on our return to Columbia - hopefully next year!
PS: Please give compliments to the chef - our food was excellent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by hmbrown22 What a pleasant surprise!
We decided to book a room at the Sheraton Columbia to split up a road trip with our 2 young boys. We would have been happy with a standard hotel, but this was much more. Very cool design as it is in a converted bank, with the old vault as a martini lounge. The Club floor lounge was the most well-stocked lounge I have ever been in -complete with wait-staff and heavy (and healthy!) appetizers that could constitute a meal. Then we went upstairs (literally) to the roof-top bar. What a find! A great way to look out over Columbia, and exciting (and containing) for the kids, as well. The bartenders there were very accommodating with our menu requests for the young ones. The only regret is that we received an unrequested wake-up call at 6:30am! Yikes! Not great when you have 2 little ones that can't go back to sleep. Luckily, the Club lounge again impressed and we enjoyed a yummy breakfast together before getting on the road. Overall, a great find and great staff and we'll definitely be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BCase811 Beautiful property, Remarkable Service
After a long day commuting across the country and driving from Charlotte, the front desk was particularly pleasant at check-in. Then, upon placing my luggage in my room, I quickly visited the club lounge for a soft drink. To my surprise, the lounge had a full offering of hearty food plus great bottled water and wine. Cedric, who managed the club lounge, had a perfect balance between professional service and friendly warmth. I hope to get a wonderful night sleep! =)

Rated 5 out of 5 by MDexplorer Nice Historic charm
We were there last Saturday night after teh Kenny Chesney concert. I thought maybe because the hotel was sold out, it would be loud and we wouldn't get a good night's rest, but I was wrong. Everything was just fine, not much hall noise and a great visit overall. The Club Lounge hot breakfast was great. Scrambled eggs, bacon, toast, sausage gravy, coffee, tea, fruit - all wonderful. It nice when you can grab something quick and ready, then go back to room to finish packing. All staff was pleasant and allowed us to check in a bit early so we could head to the concert. Also, the hotel is located in a nice area, walking distance to state house and other pieces of history. The remodel kept some of the old charm. Nice job. Thanks Columbia Sheraton!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LuLusMom Returning to Columbia...3rd year in a row!
I returned to the Sheraton Columbia Downtown Hotel for the third year in a row. I travel to Columbia to attend Runaway Runway (annual fashion show featuring clothing made from recycled materials). I just love this hotel!
The front desk staff was ready for me and my LuLu (Yorkie) when we checked in, quick to get me my key and assist me to my room so that we could relax after our flight. Both our beds were clean and all fluffed-up for us - just the way we like them and my request for my favorite room was fulfilled too! Fantastic! I decided to host drinks in my room for my friends that evening, so I requested glasses, bottle openers and a few things like that and everything was quickly brought up. I wanted to offer my friends some munchies, but not have a meal, so the restaurant's chef created a special cheese/fruit/nut tray made to order and brought that right up too (beautifully presented, just the right amount of food as well)! Anything I needed was promptly brought to me...with a smile - everything just a quick phone call away, so easy...leaving me time to enjoy my stay and visit with my friends!
As always, I slept like a rock and woke up to a beautiful downtown city view with the sun peeking in between the blinds. I had plenty of space in my room and huge bathroom to settle in, move around, play with LuLu and get ready. I didn't watch television, but had one in my room and in my bathroom...so if I had, I wouldn't have missed a beat! I used the iron and the hair dryer too (happy to not have to lug my own with me on the plane).
I enjoyed walking around the neighborhood and appreciated the downtown location, going to the open market just a few blocks up, and the convenience of knowing that if I ventured too far, I just had to call the front desk and a courtesy van would come pick me up within minutes and drive me back to the hotel.The lobby's snack coffee shop always has just what I need too, and I usually end up popping in there for something at some point. Having a few cocktails before (and after!) my nights out on the town up at the rooftop bar are a highlight of my stay and always perfect - rain or shine!!! The bar staff is great, quick and fun...always accommodating.
This year, the one thing that really sticks out in my mind were the courtesy van drivers! Love those guys! So much fun and so friendly. The nearby restaurant recommended for brunch was due to open in 10 minutes...but no worries, my driver took me for a drive around to see some beautiful landmarks (got my photo taken with that huge gamecock statue - what a hoot!). Can't wait for next year! I'll be back! Thanks!
