Super clean. Efficient staff.

Very nice staff and wasn’t expecting a full kitchen in the room. Very nice!

close to event, dining, easy access to freeways, short distance to airport

After coming in late off a flight I was tired and this was perfect! Nice bed and clean room.

Friendly and helpful staff who went the extra mile! Parking is extra in the hotel lot but metered spots were free on weekends in Birmingham, and there were plenty across the street from the hotel. Would gladly stay here again.

We loved the location and the room. We all want to stay there again.

Our experience was phenomenal. We had to evacuate from Florida and we decided heading west would've been the safest route. We don't not regret our decision. The hotel is near many great, variety restaurants. When we decided to stay an extra night the staff was kind enough to make this possible considering we booked through Orbitz. They even gave us the rate we got it for online. The staff were extremely efficient. The hot breakfast had great selections.

We had a very spacious room with queen pull out and king size bed. Very comfortable and clean, comfortable bed and pillows. As usual, the queen pull-out was uncomfortable, but my son put the mattress on the floor. The cleaning person very nicely made the bed on the floor the next day, sensitive to our preferences. That was noteworthy and welcome! Very nice staff. Breakfast could be improved (fresher pastries/bagels, there was no yogurt or fruit). Overall, a very good option if you need to be within walking distance of everything UAB.

I have done a lot of traveling, domestic as well as international. This hotel was exceptional! The staff was friendly, my room was higher quality than expected, and hot water was plentiful. Restaurants like the Fish Market, Glory Bound Gyro, and Cafe DuPont are about a 5 minute drive. The only downside is that parking is $10 per night. Great experience!

The STAFF was awesome!!! I will definetely use them the next time I am in Birmingham

great location,clean rooms, and friendly staff. Everything is within walking distance and great shops just a short drive away

Great hotel and good location! Can walk to many other interests

Daughter was interviewing with UAB. Everything was convenient and comfortable. The service was wonderful and helped my daughter to feel at home. It also helped her to make a decision to relocate to Alabama.

We stayed at this hotel for the Birmingham Bowl. It was perfect for what we were looking for. It is located downtown and the property is very clean. I would recommend it to others.

From the time I arrived my vacation was enhanced by an awesome hotel experience! The staff was very courteous, the hotel was immaculate, with all the amenities that are standard for residence inn. I don't believe you can ask for more!

Great stay, nice staff, very clean amenities, and I would stay again.

Why do I have to pay $10 for each day? Other than the parking everything was good.

Awesome! I really like the staff and the location was really close to everything we tried to do in town!
