Sheraton Birmingham Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Overall a pleasant experience staying in this hotel. Occasional noise and running in the corridors is expected. "Uptown" with a bunch of good places to eat is just a block away. A very short ride from the airport as well.

It was doing the snow / ice storm, couldn't go out for anything, only 2 restaurants open in hotel which made it very conjested, no refrig nor microwave in room.

More noise than I would like. Had a built in night light with the light coming in from the hallway under the door.

Need signs to find rooms. Valet left car outside and not locked.

The hotel is clean and comfortable, and the staff were very friendly - no complains about the room. But honestly, it's a little hard to swallow paying $150/night and then paying extra for wifi and an exorbitant amount for an ok breakfast buffet the next morning (since there are no other convenient breakfast options nearby). I'd stay again, just wish they'd reconsider the pricing on some of the extras.

Stayed at this hotel for a conference. It was very comfortable, and I appreciated getting a $5 credit for choosing to not have my sheets changed nightly. It was noisy in the halls at night, however, and the staff was very unhelpful when I arrived early and requested to be notified if a room became ready for early checkin. I was told they would not accommodate me beyond holding my luggage, which forced me to change clothes in their public bathroom and attend the conference half-asleep until their 3:00 check-in time. Not worth the money for this type of service.

I accidentally messed up my reservation and it was taken care of by the hotel without a problem. I thought I was going to have to pay double due to my mistake. Great hotel and very comfy rooms! And the BJCC concert hall is next door if you want to catch a good concert like we did.

Fabulous being able to go to BJCC without ever going outside. Beautiful accomadations!

Very efficient staff. Business friendly environment.

Only disappointment, did not have a King size bed as requested and confirmed beforehand.

Walking distance from BJCC and to beautiful fountains downtown. Inside pool was closed for repairs so that was a minus. Overall good service and amazingly comfy beds.

I only spent one night and you could see the hotel was dated but it was clean and comfortable. The neighborhood didn't appear to be the safest but I didn't have any problems and I walked downtown to conduct some business. Staff was very attentive.

Great Stay! Had a wonderful time while there and the Civil Rights Institute is amazing! 16th Street Baptist Church as well!

Had a wonderful time. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Good location.

I have to say I was disappointed in the hotel. It was more expensive than past hotels we stayed in but not as nice. I feel for the price you're paying they should at least have complimentary coffee. We didn't have a refrigerator in the room. The food in the restaurant was quite expensive. This hotel is more for people going to conventions than for families.

Our room was so clean! The bed was very comfortable. How nice to get a good night's sleep while staying at a hotel. The employees were very professional, kind and always willing to help in any way.

Overall, the rooms were clean and comfortable. The location is good. The atrium rooms can be a bit noisy from the traffic downstairs, though. I will stay here again.

The hotel rooms and lobby have been renovated and are really nice but the hallways are a mess. The carpet is badly stained and smells terrible. There also seems to be no air conditioning in the hallway. We ordered room service several times. It was prompt, the staff courteous and the food was good, though pricey. The main problem with this hotel is that there is absolutely no dining or shopping within walking distance. The hotel has basically two restaurants. We only ate at one of them, but it was good. We went out one night to try something new and the concierge told us that there just weren't any restaurants in the area. We asked him to get us a cab and he just shook his head at us. You can get a cab but you need reservations for that. He suggested we take the DART - a trolley that runs downtown - to get to the 5 points district which has several restaurants. It costs a quarter and runs every 30 minutes so we tried it out. That worked out OK, but not what we would have chosen to do.

No parking valet at front of hotel, had to find a place to park about 2 blocks away.....front desk was understaffed.....waited 20 minutes to check in around midnight......no service at breakfast the next morning, no one there to seat me and there was no self-seating sign, so didn't know what to do... then my coffee and small OJ cost me $9.00 before I even ordered anything else.....toilet in my room kept running all night, something is wrong with it, had to shut my bathroom door to sleep, lightswitch on lamp above nightstand would not turn off, so had to unplug it. Other than above, visit was fine.
