Property Description

Experience the grace and charm of one of the State's most historic hotels. Built on the site of the 19th Century Minnaugh Mansion- which served as headquarter for General Sherman when he marched on Columbia- the Clarion Hotel is conveniently located downtown,blocks from the State Capitol and the University of South Carolina. Starting August 2014, we will be under new construction and renovation as we build Columbia's first dual branded property soon to become the Hilton Garden Inn University and Home2 Suites University. Once complete in 2016 we will become the second largest hotel in downtown Columbia, SC.
