"They did right by us during the anime convention"
Went there for a anime convention and the employees at Marriot were great hosts.
Here’s a tip during an anime convention at this particular Marriot, if at all possible – ask for a room that doesn’t face the interior (I believe it’s the odd numbered rooms that face outside facing the street), because as you might imagine, con-goers were up for until around 2 AM, so it was louder than what I was used to. Thankfully I came prepared though – I had noise cancelling headphones and a White Noise application that I used at night :-)
The Marriot Wi-Fi worked well enough, although I wasn’t on it that much. Marriot provided plenty of free water stations with lots of cold water. The air conditioning actually broke Saturday evening, but Marriot provided several fans and seemed to increase the water supply in order to make up for it, so that’s much appreciated. And they had it up and running on Sunday and it was nice and cool, so they repaired it quickly.
We were two moms in town for college visits with our daughters. We only wish we had gotten in town earlier to take advantage of this fun location and charming old hotel. We had stayed in traditional hotels for the past two nights and this was a great change of pace with so much personality. I have been to Columbia 100's of times and never stayed in a hotel. I saw a very different side of the city. The rooftop is such a cool spot and we were clearly 2 minutes from the University.
Special thanks to Danielle and Britney at the front desk... Phenomenal and profession young ladies... =) my suite was lovely...comfortable. The first hotel I've EVER been to where they NEATLY folded and left clean towels on my door...respecting the "Do Not Disturb" sign.... Minus all the younger kids there (assuming sporting event) making excessive noise (kids will be kids) LOVE THIS HOTEL...Definetly will book again.
Courtyard by Marriott Downtown Columbia, SC is a wonderful place to stay. It's convenient to the campus, where my son goes to school. I have stayed here multiple times and I love everything about it. The rooms are super clean and the staff are extremely nice. I don't want to stay in any other hotel.
