Why We Love This Hotel

  • Stay just steps from the University of South Carolina and downtown Columbia 
  • Guest rooms are whimsical, with Gamecock-inspired headboards and vibrant patterns, complete with free Wi-Fi

The brightly decorated and newly renovated Graduate Columbia is in the heart of downtown Columbia, just steps from the University of South Carolina. The Colonial Life Arena is easily accessible, at less than a mile away, and hosts many big-name concerts and USC sporting events. This 4-star hotel is in an ideal location for those looking to tour the university or explore the capital city. 

For some of the best nightlife downtown, visit the nearby Five Points neighborhood and mingle with the locals. The Vista, another popular neighborhood known for its restaurants and shopping, is also close by, at less than a mile away. Nature lovers can canoe down one of Columbia's three rivers or head to nearby Congaree National Park and spot an abundance of wildlife, not to mention some of the tallest hardwood trees in the eastern U.S., amongst the swampy landscape.

Guests are welcomed by a bright pink check-in desk, black-and-white checkered marble floors, floral wallpaper and original hardwood accents. Rooms are equally vibrant and playful, with pink gamecock headboards, USC-themed table lamps and stylistic portraits of Darius Rucker. While this area has no shortage of impressive restaurants, guests can also grab a quick coffee or a sit-down meal at Poindexter, a casual spot that turns into a bar at night.
