Embassy Suites Hotel Birmingham

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My friend and I arrived from an overnight flight from CA at 7am exhausted and ready for a nice room and some rest. We paid for the room for the night before so we could check in with no delay. When we got into our room they must have done some sheet-rock work in the bathroom and there was dust everywhere. It was FILTHY! We also found a screw on the carpet along with some contact lenses. We then had to wait over an hour for another room to be available and that one was clean but needed lots of deferred maintenance. When we came back from Talladega on Sunday night they didn't leave us any clean towels. We had to call down twice to finally get some clean towels.

It is very dirty, the only good thing was breakfast

The hotel was nice....but it vould use a few repairs and upgrades to be an Embassy! In the bathroom could use a heater if needed for use if chilly in order to take your shower....the shower curtains need replacing....phones in room need updating and Wi-Fi should automatically be within use without you needing to use a promo code.

Basic amenities were fine and the hotel staff is great. Only two knocks - 1) Tub surround had light mildew between tiles, not typical of this level of hotel, and 2) the afternoon reception in the garden (a key reason to choose Embassy) was extremely chintzy compared to other Embasy Suites around the country. Some chips and dips and a half dozen well drinks. Only one attendant, who was particularly slow and "slow". 10 - 15 minute wait in line for a coke, if you have the patience.

Loved the hotel! Pool was great and common area for breakfast was lovely! Breakfast was delicious! Room was clean and very spacious!

Superb and helpful staff. Great rooms. Charles helped us with shuttle to downtown and a few suggestions for sights to see. Reception with drinks and snacks in our first evening was wonderful.

What a disappointing experience. I reserved a room here because they had higher than average ratings and thought it would be a safe bet. I was wrong. Here are a few areas that need major work. Pros: 1) They let us check in at 3 instead of 4. 2) Breakfast was free. Cons: 1) The room was super warm. Before we left I had the thermostat set at 58 degrees and it still felt like it was 80. 2) The front door to the room was warped and you could hear everything that was going on outside the room. 3) The shower was leaking so much that it ran all night. 4) There was no light in the shower and of all showers that I have been in it actually needed one. 5) The breakfast service was a joke. We waited in line for about 15 minutes before being served half of what we wanted because the omelet cook and the server were calling each other names. The server was refused to get the rest of our order because her coworker was pretending to be burned so she could file a workers' compensation claim. 6) The bed in the room looked like a crater and the pillow cases didn't even fit the pillows. 7) We needed some Advil and the hotel store did not sell any. The only heath care products they sold were prophylactic wrappers. 8) The parking lot was littered with garbage and vomit. We will not stay here again.

The hotel is conveniently located. The room I was clean and comfortable. The staff was pleasant and accommodating though I did not have any unusual requirements.

My family and I spent the 4th of July weekend at this hotel. Breakfast and happy hour were great, the pool area was small and not adequate for the number of guest. The hotel surroundings is beautiful and rooms were big and clean however the staff was unprofessional and lazy. On a few occasions the gentlemen at the front desk made several unwelcomed comments while I was waiting in the lobby for my husband, "are you going to bring me breakfast?". Luckily my husband arrived just in time to put him in his place. The security guards spend most of their time walking around and socializing versus manning the doors. This could be a great place to stay if the staff were professionally trained. Will not return.

We love staying at embassy suites for the hot breakfast and reasonable prices. However when we checked in they had issues with the key card system. We were only there two nights and didn't receive our room key until late the second day. Service turned around when my car wouldn't start and the friendly staff pushed it backwards and jump started my car with no complaining. That is above and beyond I my book.

Staff was great. Really enjoyed and appreciated free breakfast and managers reception. Wifi was $10 a day and pretty spotty at times. Pool has extended adults only hours. Found that amusing. Good hotel, great views, great staff.

Great place and location friendly staff just wished internet was free

Decent staff, clean room, average food. The front desk was helpful in arranging a taxi cab to the airport.

Overall the experience was good. It is located in a great part of town and the staff was friendly.

Staff was attentive to needs. Great with kids. Ran out of towels, called front desk and more were delivered within minutes.

Enjoyed the friendly staff, spacious room and tasty meals. Some of the decor is a bit dated but overall a very comfortable stay.

My experience here was excellent, a lot of business close to the hotel. Also close to the airport.

Room was consistently quiet and clean. No bananas at breakfast... strange?

Our family visited Birmingham for July 4th weekend and I was VERY disappointed in the quality of this Embassy suites. Rooms were dingy, carpet floors with multiple stains, the lists goes on! Bc it was the 4th weekend, the hotel was booked with family reunions, a full house. That Saturday morning, the breakfast buffet/area was horrible. The hotel did not staff the kitchen staff appropriately!! The ran out food AND by 9 am (breakfast was from 7-10:30am) they were serving food off of paper plates!

Clean & comfortable. Large enough for meetings as well as top notch dining at Ruth Chris Steakhouse on site. We will choose the hotel for our future visits.
