This is a terrific place to stay and I'll be sure to stay at a Staybridge Suites again. For this trip I used a free IHG night my first night here. The staff still treated me like I was a king. The spacious, smartly-designed room was very helpful for my business trip, and wi-fi worked very well. The software in the business center needs to be updated, but that was no big deal because I just used my own stuff in my room. The staff assigned me to the room that is closest to the front desk on the first floor, (115). This worked great for me as a business traveler, as I was up early each morning. I wouldn't recommend that room for vacationers who like to sleep in, just because it's close to where breakfast is served and it can get noisy during the social. I really enjoyed the convenience though, as well as easy interaction with other guests. Upon check in they gave me 500 IHG points just for showing up, then directed me to the free cookout social. My expectations at IHG properties continue to be high, and yet the properties repeatedly exceed those expectations. Well done!

Overall the place is ok if was like a red roof in or budget hotel. Reserved a room with a door to seperate bedroom and living room. When i arived was advised none are available and gave me another room. I had been out of the country for three weeks and my girlfriend was leaving the next day for a month. We both have kids so the door was kind of important but no such luck. The breakfast was ok but compared to the same priced competitors it is poor. Lastly the pool area need some fresh air coming in as too hot and chlorine high for sure if stay in there. I did like the gym and the laundry area as they were both nice.

The hotel grounds were great for our stay. We were in a group of about 40 and had room to hang out, talk, and bbq.

We love this hotel. Just wish it was in walking distance to shops, restaurants, etc. It has everything that you need and the front desk people are wonderful!

This Hotel is often hard to get into, due to it's excellent performance. While the location is on a very busy intersection, and the traffic noise can be noticeable at times, the staff are excellent in their desire to welcome and accommodate you. Rick at the front desk is superb. He always has a smile and remembers my name, and goes out of his way to make sure I am taken care of. I am always recognized for my IHG status, and offered all the amenities that go with it. Because it is in the heart of downtown Columbia, the social makes it so easy to kick back and enjoy a wonderful meal, and just "stay home" for the evening. Also, due to it's popularity, it is often hard to find adequate seating at the breakfast and social, and the kitchen staff is often hard pressed to keep up with food for the demand. I try to stay here every trip I make to Columbia. You should too--but save a seat for me at the social !!

I am very familiar with the area as I spent a great deal of time here with my grandparents as a child/teen/young adult and then as a student @ Carolina. This hotel is in the heart of the city near all of the awesome downtown restaurants and night life. The staff is SUPERB! They were kind and polite and it seemed genuine. Everyone that I encountered during all three of my stays seemed happy, not a fake happy either. I highly recommend this property and I will be back for business and we may return for family time too.
