All was right with this Marriott. We heard they had just finished renovations. Super clean and fresh. Lots of bathroom space...... towel cubbies, good and attractive counter space in bathroom, separate sink area. Very much liked the layout of the room and everything seemed so new. Husband wanted a second tv but I thought it was great that the tv...

This is the standard Residence Inn - nothing different; most of the staff are pretty friendly; the breakfast standard Marriott morning fair but at least the coffee is good. Convenient to UAB health facilities.

We have stayed here many times and have not been disappointed. Great breakfast and friendly staff. What else do you need! Rooms are great. They are remodeling right now but don't let that stop you from staying. We had no issues or noise. Would always recommend Marriott.

The renovation on this hotel could not be nicer. Great staff and lovely rooms. Super clean. Will be our go-to lodging when visiting family. Near UAB and Five Points, convenient and on-site parking at a reasonable price.

I stayed here on a recent professional visit to the UAB campus. It was easy to walk to many locations. My room/suite was spacious, and the bed was comfortable. Staff were friendly and efficient. It was convenient to have breakfast there in the AM, although it would have been nice to see more fresh/healthy food choices. Amenities - would have...

The Residence Inn UAB Birmingham is within 2 miles of the doctors and hospitals we go to. All the rooms at the Residence Inn UAB Downtown Birmingham Al are suites. And their is nothing like a Marriott Heavenly Bed!

This hotel is near 20th street where lots of restaurants and bars with outdoor seating are located. Easy walk to lots of dining choices. Also fairly close to UAB medical facilities. This you will hear some sirens at night. Great staff at front desk. There is a charge for parking. Room was standard but clean. Beds were comfortable.

The hotel is in a great location downtown near UAB and local restaurants. The staff is very accommodating. The breakfast and evening socials are quite nice. The property is well maintained and the rooms are neat and clean. My only complaint is the unwiilingness to honor some corporate rates

I liked this hotel! The A/C was smooth and quiet (no loud compressor cycling loudly on and off all night). It was walking distance from two good restaurants I visited and many more in view. Ten minutes or so by Uber from the airport. I would definitely stay at this hotel next time I'm in Birmingham.
