They gave us the wrong set of room keys at check in which meant we tried to enter the wrong room. After getting another set of keys, the room number had been written down wrong so again we were trying to enter the wrong room. Otherwise, the facility was well kept.

I just loved the environment of the hotel! Made me decide to move downtown Columbia! :)

Modern hotel in a great location.

Parking would have been pricey but luckily the meters are free on weekend and there are spots right in front of the hotel. The staff was very friendly and masked up.

Easy checkin. Great stay! Will definitely stay again.

Mixed emotions.... Positive: Clean, easy checkin and pleasant staff. Negatives: - We stayed on the 4th floor and the hallways are like dungeons. Really dark, drab and uninviting. No windows anywhere. - only one elevator for the entire hotel - very thin walls and you could here people Walking in the halls, every door shut. - room temperature would never moderate... when AC was on, it was freezing. When it was off, it got hot and muggy real quick. I would not stay here again.

Spacious rooms Great work space in rooms with task lighting Bathroom countertop space and closets were perfect Very comfortable beds

Everything was great. People were very nice and helpful

It’s a modern and clean hotel with an amazing staff that cares. Everyone was super friendly and we weren’t bored! Definitely recommend!

Location was good but room had a smell and walls are thin that we could clearly hear someone screaming at someone else upstairs and stumping above us

We loved the location, local amenities, and the decor

Great,really like your hotel,great experience,no this is going to have to be enough

The modern, European design of the property and the room were most pleasing and utilitarian. The staff were truly service oriented and nice.

Love the place and location. will definitely stay here again if I am in the area.
