My wife and I stayed there at the end of December while attending a wedding. Hotel staff was very friendly and accomodating, great Starbucks in the basement. Highly recommend for a business or leisure trio to Columbia, SC

When routed off Interstate 95 due to hurricane Matthew, I ended up at the Sheraton Columbia Downtown simply because it took me 12 hours to drive what should have taken 4 and I'd had enough for the day. It was a great location in the center of town, just down the street from the capital building and within a brief...

This hotel is in a beautiful old building that was once a bank. The bed was very comfortable. The room was clean and tastefully appointed.The staff was competent, friendly and helpful. There is an exercise room and a roof top lounge in the 17 floor. The room rate was very reasonable in spite of the fact that it was commencement...

A very old Sheraton, both the overall building (an old bank, complete with vault in the lobby) and the decor...at least two iterations ago. Given it's age, not surprisingly my room was full of nooks and crannies and Sheraton had incorporated some creative use of the available space. I liked the painted exposed wood flooring and area rug look. Charming....

Obviously it's a beautiful historic building. However there is NO insulation. Which was a problem when there was a wedding going on across the street. The staff was helpful, but the parking situation was awful if you didn't valet. The vault (bar) was not good but there is a Starbucks in the basement! It was also dog friendly. For a...

What a great place. We ended up staying here for two nights after getting rained out on a backpacking trip. We had beautiful rooms both nights. The front desk was polite and went above and beyond informing us of the amenities. The building itself is stunning, with hardwood floors, black and white tiled elevators, and a historic bank vault that...

One of my favorite places in Columbia. Great view. I always take my company to this bar. The bar staff can be hit or miss and they will close if it rains, but will stay closed even after it rains. Its a must see if you are visiting.

I had a great experience at Sheraton Columbia Downtown and that is due to the amazing staff at the front desk Renee M. & Adrian B. I have to say I have stayed here before and they always remember me. It is so nice to be greeted with a smile and nice to see you again. Staying in hotels can...

Great rooms and friendly staff! Would highly recommend. We were greeted with a smile from the moment we walked in and the staff was nothing but helpful. Room was smaller than expected but they made up for it with the quality furnishings and cleanliness.
