Verified reviews of Sheraton Columbia Downtown Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked in recently:
"Rude Staff"
Overall score2.0/ 5
Vallet didn't have parking and told me I had to figure out where to park my own car. Didn't give any suggestions just said figure it out. Veronica at the desk was also rude as well. The hotel staff moved very slow and treated guest like it was a blessing to stay there.

"The room was too small and uncomfortable!"
Overall score2.0/ 5
Please know, all of the hotel staff I came in contact with to in include the valet, did an excellent job! Thet were very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and Guest Awareness. However, the room itself was unacceptable due to its compact size and cracks in the floor and the wall mounding. Unless the room size would every increase in size, I will never return to this hotel. Also, I never did see a sign showing me a sign for outside parking! Not happy at all with the room layout!

"It was a nice stay."
Overall score4.0/ 5
But you guys need to renovate the rooms, because they are outdated. If I am going to pay those prices, you need better rooms.

"Have some concerns."
Overall score3.0/ 5
First, for some reason the Sheraton Reservation line redirected me to Priceline which then charged me for the Club Level room ($235.99/night) I requested. However upon checking in we were informed the Club Level Services were not available and the hotel dropped my room charge to $149 per night. Priceline has thus far refused to return the $173.98 in overcharges. On Saturday night when we returned to our room at 11:00pm after our Daughter's Wedding the electronic door lock failed and we spent 30 minutes while staff worked to get it open. Had the same problem on Sunday morning and had to wait over an hour for the front desk clerk to get the "jump start" box that allowed us to access the room. This hotel could be a great place but old buildings require maintenance and it just doesn't appear that the Owners/Management are up to maintaining this Property. Very disappointed in the experience and just hope none of the other guests from our Wedding Party were inconvenienced as we were by the screwed up billing and faulty door lock system.

"Overall nice hotel."
Overall score3.0/ 5
Overall it was a nice hotel. I originally paid for a ?city view? my room was anything but that and they switched my rooms when I called. My original room door also did not work and you had to lift up on the door handle to get the door to open or shut which was difficult. The second room was much nicer, except the desk chair has the back pulled off of it and the staples sticking out. Walking by it I cut my leg on it since I was unaware. Everyone on staff was very nice and helpful whenever I asked a question but overall maintenance or cleaning crew did not do well with submitting items that needed to be fixed before guests arrived.

"Review for our stay."
Overall score4.0/ 5
I thought the hotel staff was very friendly, helpful and courteous. The service was awesome. The hotel was a bit old, however the experience overall was great! We loved the location and the historical background!

"Restless Night"
Overall score3.0/ 5
The look of the hotel is very nice, however I did not have a pleasant experience. I was disappointed to find out that there no microwave in the room. I had to take my food to the lobby to be heated. Not only that, the staff had to take my food to another location for it to be heated. Once settled in my room and resting, I was awakened at 4am by a street sweeper or garbage truck on the road below. My room was on the 7th floor, so I'm not sure why I was able to hear so much from the street.
