I have stayed at this hotel several times while traveling on business and have found the hotel staff to be extremely friendly, the rooms clean and new, and the location close to work. Would definitely recommend for business travel to downtown Birmingham.

This is a pretty nice hotel for a chain that doesn't purport to be upscale. The rooms are nice - fully equipped with kitchens for those staying long term. Suites were only $10/night more and well worth it. Breakfast is included and is pretty good for a free hotel breakfast. There is also a happy hour/snack time in the evenings....

The staff was great. The breakfast bar was delicious each day. Lots of choices. The room was great as well. The hotel is located close to UAB lots of walking distance areas. Close to reataurants. No complaints at all. The mixers they offered nightly were a plus as well.

We needed a place just to sleep over on our way to Houston and opted for this property as it looked easy to get to from the highway. We were right. It's in a quiet part of the city. Out the door of the hotel there are a couple restaurants close by. The area felt quite safe and easy to...

I can highly recommend this Residence Inn. Clean, quite new, great service. One of the lightbulbs burned out and they fixed it quickly once I notified the front desk. Speaking of lights, the power buttons for the lights are all quite intuitive, which is a nice change from most hotels. Front desk service is impeccable. Hopefully you will get the...

This hotel is contemporary - very comfortable- walking distance to great restaurants- 10 min from airport! There is a shuttle to and from airport every 30 min so we did not need to rent a car. The hotel staff was so accommodating and friendly - the hotel restaurant was really good- and other very nice restaurants walking distance away.

Check-in was very pleasant and efficient and Martin called up to my room a little while after I had arrived to ensure everything was fine - a nice touch. The suite was lovely and well-appointed. It looks very new and is spotlessly clean. The service that followed was absolutely amazing. Soon after arriving, I realized that my contact lense solution...

Stayed here in July 2014 for a family reunion. The rooms were very clean and spacious. It was very quiet. The beds were awesome. The breakfast and service was fantastic. There was one lady that made me laugh every morning at breakfast. Wish I could remember her name, but she was so helpful. Everything was so clean. They made us...
