My husband and I stayed 3 nights. The staff was very courteous, extra amenities (water, snacks, toiletries, even wine!) were available 24/7 in the lobby, and they had an incredible complimentary breakfast. Within walking distance to lots of restaurants and bars. We will definitely stay here again!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

I was in Columbia this past weekend for the Nashicon anime convention, and, per tradition, reserved the Hampton Inn Downtown for lodging for the weekend (the hotel offered a special event/group rate.) Our room, 122, offered plenty of space and all the amenities we needed including refrigerator and comfortable beds. Everything was clean and in good working order. The hotel...

This Hampton Inn is a gem. Great staff and perfect location. The property is spotless with the usual HILTON comfortable bedding. I would highly recommend this hotel whenever you are visiting the Columbia area.

In the past 13 months, I've stayed at this property four times, and I have three more stays already booked. The location couldn't be better - tons of restaurants nearby, and it's right off the University of South Carolina. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Standard Hampton Inn breakfast. Cookies in the afternoon at the front desk. Outdoor pool looks lovely...

I only stayed for 1 night for a business meeting, but it was great. The staff was friendly and very helpful, the beds and pillows are heavenly and the location is perfect! They also have a 24 hour snack shop and hot breakfast in the mornings. You won't be disappointed if you choose to stay here!

Location was perfect for exploring the downtown Columbia area. You can walk to the downtown bars and restaurants quite easily from here. I had a room facing the street and there was quite a bit of road noise, but nothing that woke me up at night. Room is the standard Hampton room, with comfortable bed and unfortunately, not so supportive...

We were in town for a wedding, and the employees at the Hampton Inn couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. They helped us find an excellent restaurant within walking distance, and checked to see that it was open on a holiday. When we had hungry grandchildren later in the evening, again they helped us out.
