This is a great hotel that offers a very pleasant stay with pleasant staff. We came as a group and were accommodated at an affordable rate and got a great breakfast to go along with it! I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Birmingham. They would go above and beyond even when not asked!

The only draw back is the parking garage. It is not directly connected to the hotel, as it is shared with the medical center. You have to leave the garage take an elevator down , walk outside and back into the hotel walk thru the lobby and enter another elevator. I would recommend that if you leave the garage and...

I decided to visit my son at the last minute, so I did not have a reservation (huge mistake). I ended up with a handicap room, the toilet would not flush properly, and I did not realize the hotel and the hospital are right next door to each other. I am sure this is perfect if you need to be...

What a nice staff especially tammi at the front desk. She was so helpful with everything during our stay. Thank you so much. The hotel was very clean. The only thing I didn't like was they now charge for parking per day.

We usually stay in Residence Inn by Marriott but this time sadly they were fully booked. We came here hoping for similar experience. The staff was very nice. The rooms clean and cozy but DO NOT have a microwave as stated on Expedia. There's one microwave on each floor in the ice machine which is still better than nothing but...

The Courtyard at UAB is right next to the hospital. There is a garage attached to the hotel, so parking was easy for a downtown location. The hotel is fine, and just what you'd expect from a Courtyard, but nothing special. It was clean, caters well to business travelers and for the right rate I'd stay there again.

Great business hotel. Solid room. Good bistro. Great staff. I highly recommend choosing this option. I was also impressed by the speed of Uber response to this hotel. Only down side is the slow elevator.

I stayed one night at the Courtyard at UAB October 7th, a Friday. I was traveling in with business partners and we arrived late, but stopped to eat prior to checking in. My only complaint is that I was called twice during our meal (7:30-9:30pm) to confirm whether I still wanted the room. While this was somewhat annoying, I suppose...
