The Bad

A few guests mentioned that they were sometimes erroneously or double charged for things on their bills and had trouble getting these charges reversed. 

Some guests from March 2013 onward mentioned the renovations in their reviews and noted that often times, parts of the hotel were closed off or covered with large tarps that took away from the look of the hotel and changed the way they reviewed. As of this listing, it appears the renovations are wrapping up.

Guest Recommendations
Catherine from Norcross, GA US rated Columbia Marriott 10 out of 10 on October 16, 2010
"My family and I had looked forward into staying a the Adam's Mark. Unfortunately, we was very disappointed. first of all, the room was moldy and the tub was horrible. it should be noted that my two years old has a respritory dysfunction(MOLDY ROOM). I have a two and a six year old which did not get any sleep due to the loud noise(party). In addition, my husband is a police officer and there were a lot of drugs on the hall(smell of burt marijauna). We thought about complaining but we just wanted to leave from the area on the next morning."

"Thursday night Big Band program was excellent. Program was well attended and everyone had a great time I left my jacket in the hotel room and called the hotel, I couldn't return until later and my jacket was held for me, for which I thank the hotel As regards value. The room was on the small side, though rated as deluxe. The bath tub showed its age. There was no separate place for the ice cube bucket to be placed."
Warren from Columbia, SC US rated Columbia Marriott 8 out of 10 on May 21, 2004
