What You'll Get
After navigating floating platform staircases, dodging living-room-level bosses, and searching for randomly appearing bathroom keys, most homeowners come to regret purchasing houses built by video-game designers. Get respite from the chaos with today's Groupon: for $125, you get a one-night stay, a bottle of champagne, a half-dozen chocolate-covered strawberries, a hot-breakfast buffet, and a $25 restaurant credit at the Sheraton Columbia Downtown Hotel (up to a $269.90 value).
The Sheraton's chic interior was recently renovated, preserving the dark hardwood, tile mosaics, and high-speed Internet access of its World War I–era origins. Celebrate a special occasion with a loved one within the Sheraton’s historic walls, or merely rest somewhere with crisper bed sheets and fewer succubi than at home. The amenity-rich rooms (an average value of $169; rates vary by date) feature contemporary furnishings, Sheraton Sweet Sleeper beds, and LCD flat-panel televisions, and provide a sumptuous setting to tipple the included champagne ($35) and half-dozen chocolate-covered strawberries ($15) while gently whispering in your companion's ear about President William Henry Harrison’s favorite pizza toppings. Wake up in the morning with a calmer heart, a clearer head, and a hot breakfast for two ($25.90; $12.95 per person).
A $25 credit to the Sheraton’s in-house dining establishments allows guests to nosh at an array of eateries, including casual Main Street, hip, upscale P.O.S.H., the skyline-set Rooftop Lounge, or the historic, auburn-hued Vault Martini Bar, set in the building's original bank vault. You can also use the $25 credit toward Starbucks coffee and fresh baked goods at the in-house café, Perk Up.
- The rooms are beautiful with dark hardwood floors and very comfy beds. They are spotlessly clean and have nice shampoo and conditioner (hey this is important - I hate packing that stuff). – nolazona, TripAdvisor
- Stayed at this hotel after a USC game and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very well appointed and has a great rooftop martini bar with an awesome view. – Brandon H., Yelp
