An unexpected delight!
Liked: The desk staff are wonderful - friendly, welcoming, and (justifiably) proud of - and knowledgeable about - the history of the lovely old house that forms the center (lobby, bar, sitting room, and amazing upstairs suites) of the hotel. The regular guest room décor is quite unusual, with a funky USC undergrad and sports mascot theme, and the entire experience is delightfully different from that of the usual chain hotel. Beds and pillows are comfortable, and the lounge/bar is welcoming. Several outdoor seating areas are also available for friends to gather. No free breakfast, but being conveniently located in downtown Columbia at the edge of the USC campus, one is walking distance from many good restaurants and coffee shops in the 5-points area. The hotel also has a restaurant. Be warned that there is a $10/night charge for parking, but given the dearth of affordable parking in the area, and the likelihood that a parking garage would be much pricier, it's a reasonable fee. I look forward to returning for another stay!
Disliked: It's hard to find the entrance when arriving by car; one end of this parking area/entry is gated (presumably to prevent people from using it as a cut-through) and of course that was the end we tried first :( Just keep going around the block and you'll find it. Otherwise, absolutely no complaints!
