If you are planning a visit to a Cherry Hill Seminary event in Columbia, like our occasional symposiums with the University of South Carolina, you may find the accommodations information here useful.
There are a lot of very nice hotels in the downtown area, all within blocks of a mile of our USC meeting space (in Gambrell Hall).
However, there are at least two hotels which are only another mile away, across the river and right by the interstate, at more modest prices. We do not have conference rates as our events are typically not large. A recent search of travel booking sites shows prices vary from day to day in the $98-$110 range.
OH SNAP!! In mid-January it was announced that Columbia is now a “March Madness” city, at which time hotel rates close to downtown all jumped. Just a bit further away than the hotels we originally posted here is a Best Western Executive Inn & Suites (1720 Bush River Road, Columbia, SC, 29210) that you may like. It’s still an easy drive to the campus, free parking, breakfast, microwave and fridge in the room, but no shuttle. Please do not limit your own search, but speaking as locals, this is one we feel is convenient.
