Campus Charmer steps from the Horseshoe

Right in the heart of downtown Columbia on the scenic campus of the University of South Carolina, Graduate Columbia blends historic grandeur with pops of prep for a stay that feels like home.

Our South Carolina retreat boasts local charm, with Gamecock-inspired headboards and echoes of “Oot Oot.” Plaids, chevron and touches of grass cloth come together in guestrooms. In the lobby, bright colors and cheery florals pop against dark wood paneling. Take in the bookish surroundings at our lobby-level café, Poindexter Coffee, and fuel your muse with a caffeinated beverage or two.

Pet Friendly

We love furry friends (probably a little more than the next guy) and would never ask you leave them at home during your travels. In fact, when you bring your four-legged companion along for the ride, they stay for free and will enjoy a pup perk compliments of our pals at BarkBox.
