Parking garage was convenient. Shower and room needed to be cleaned more thoroughly. Shower floor looked like it had never been scrubbed. Dust bunnies on the wall, lampshade and corners of room.

Old. Musty. Unsafe.

Good house keeping

I like the location. parking and restaurant. Didn't get coffee replenished the next day. No conditioner even though I asked and they said they would bring some.

Clean, friendly staff, no problems

Pros: walking distance to restaurants, easy parking, comfy beds, staff was friendly and let us check in early. Cons: The street noise is RIDICULOUS! We were on the 10th floor and it sounded like drag racing all night. Horrible! If u book please tell them to put u on the opposite side of the hall from the street where subway is. The shower knob kept falling off and the tv channels were awful. TVs were not smart TVs either so there was no way to watch Netflix or prime. What hotel doesn’t have access to Netflix in 2022. Biggest con is the street noise. Only reason i wouldn’t book here again

Very quiet and peaceful

Clean

Enjoyed my stay

Very nice hotel!! Prior to checking in the room looked like it had not been vacuumed. There was hair in the bathroom floor. I didn’t complain much since we were an early check in due to be at UAB Hospital all morning. They were very polite about us checking in early.

I liked the location. The bar area was huge, and my friends and I had a great time there.

The central location and the staff where friendly and helpful.

Jessica, we are sorry we marred your stay with the location of your room in the hotel. However, we are very happy our location was ideal for exploring the town and the in-room features ensured the utmost comfort. I definitely will talk to our team about updating our amenities as well as working on sound proofing for rooms in that vicinity. We understand your frustration, but we would love to get you into a quiter spot and win you over completely in the future.
