A new downtown hotel has formally opened its doors in Columbia.
The Broadway, a project four years in the making, celebrated its grand opening Wednesday with a ribbon cutting. The ceremony had members of the Columbia Chamber of Commerce as well as representatives from Hilton. The hotel has 114 rooms as well as a restaurant and rooftop bar offering panoramic views of Columbia.
The hotel was designed with Columbia in mind as ownership hopes it attracts local residents to The Broadway.
"From the décor to the food and beverage offerings, we incorporated the artistic talent and local offerings of our amazing city into every possible facet of our hotel," said Bob McDonald, general manager of The Broadway.
