I always have an outstanding experience at this hotel and will continue to make it my first choice every time I am in the area. The staff is amazing, the rooms are very clean and comfortable. I wish I could clone this hotel in every city that I travel to.

This is the best hotel in the Birmingham/Bloomfield area - the staff, the lobby, the rooms and restaurants are fabulous - the concierge was extremely helpful and went above and beyond. The beds are very comfortable and rooms are spacious and beautiful. The Rugby Grillle has high quality food and is a comfortable environment. Highly recommend.

The staff and service combine with the comfort of the room and exceptional food made this a memorable anniversary. We were surprised by chocolate strawberries and wine upon arrival. Our brunch at Rugby Grill on Sunday was perfect.
