At first blush this dated brick building doesn't appear to present itself as a boutique hotel. Once inside the sweeping staircase makes you realize this former bakery factory has quite a bit of charm. The entire hotel was reserved for a wedding and what a wonderful job they did to make it a great experience. Manager Amy and front desk...

Claussens is definitely the best place to stay in the downtown area . The rooms are comfortable and very unique. You may stay there on several different occasions and enjoy a different room experience each time. The location is great for biking, running etc as it occupies a space right in the middle of Columbia's most scenic neighborhoods. Dining options...

Was booked there through my company and didn't know what to expect, but I was made to really feel welcome by the concierge Allison. I was very impressed with how friendly she was. The free glass of wine at check in was nice and the delivered breakfast also rocked. I suggest them highly.

I was booked at this location for by an organization wooing our business. New to Columbia, it felt as if I were just a tad too much out of the way. I would have preferred a standard business hotel such as the Marriott, Sheraton or Hilton downtown and closer to the Statehouse. With that said, room was comfortable, air conditioning...

I've called every hotel to find accommodations for my wedding night on November 1st.

Nothing like any place else you'll stay because of it's uniqueness. Very nice, clean. Concierge very helpful and extremely professional. Felt more like home than a hotel room at a reasonable price. I stayed in a loft room which made it seem even more like home.

During our stay I can say enough about the service that the front desk person Allison provided. She was friendly, courteous and greeted us with a great smile. Nice when you are away from home that someone makes you feel at home. Thanks Allison. Gregg Sharpe

We stayed on the ground floor in 103. The room was spacious with a nice sized bathroom and layout.

We spent Saturday night at the Inn at Claussens. The Inn has charm, which is notably lacking in most of the other hotels in Columbia, SC. Both my room and my traveling companion's room were large, clean and well-laid out. The bathrooms were clean, although unrenovated. The major issue was the staff, none of whom had adequate training.
