Recent guest reviews

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!

It was a great experience. The amazing location combined with the helpful staff made for an incredible getaway.

I enjoyed this hotel. Not only was the price reasonable, but the staff was very hospitable and the location was close to the BJCC. I have stayed here before, did so this time, and will again.

Everything about the experience was great! The check-in and subsequent morning front desk persons could not have been more welcoming and accommodating. We would definitely here again.

I have to say that I was very pleased with my stay. I walked in the front door greated by the sweetest young lady at the front desk. She handled herself with grace. She let me know about events that were being held there and the times. The room was above amazing. It was the cleanest room I have walked into in a hotel. This hotel goes above and beyond to make sure your stay will be amazing! The bed and pillows were AWESOME! I would love to take the bed and pillows home with me. I want to say Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay at a wonderful hotel! Can not go wrong with this hotel!

The staff was great. The girl who ran the breakfast buffett yesterday morning should get an ward for the most personable staff ever. Great location near to great restaurants and music.

The room was spotless and spacious, but the best aspect of this hotel is its location! Located within 5 minute's walking distance is the campus of UAB. A comfortable and convenient hotel that I would recommend to anyone!

Great location. The rooms were very accomadating and clean. They were spottless. The staff was friendly. I will stay there everytime I visit B'Ham.

Excellent location in downtown, delightful BHM. Wonderful, patient hotel personnel. All details attended to in a prompt courteous manner.

We spent two nights. This would be a great place if you needed to visit B'ham for longer. Clean, comfortable efficiency. Location is great for UAB/hospitals. But good otherwise as well. Being close to 5 points is nice. Downtown is an easy, though longish walk. Hotel is also on the bus lines, including the DART (cheap, frequent).
