The Shearaton when it's finished will be the top hotel in Maryland outside of Baltimore. The combination of Starwood amenities plus its unparalleled location on the Columbia Waterfront make it, for me, the best hotel experience in the Columbia area-nobody else comes close &the Columbia Hitlon is second. I may sound like an ad but I'm not. I do not like highway hotels or hotels seeded in office complexes-after waking up in your sumptous room at the Shearton Columbia, you can go for a run around the lakefront, or in the evening walk to the Columbia Mall or go to any of the fine restarurants walking distance from the Hotel. The renovation is a pain, especially if you are not in the Tower (ask for Tower when you reserve; but the location and rooms make up for it.
