I arrived at the hotel in the early afternoon. As a Platinum Elite member I have always been greeted with a smile & a thanks for my loyalty at EVERY Marriott I have ever stayed at, no matter where. Instead, upon check in, I was informed that my room had a leak and that I needed to be moved to... More

We have stayed in many Fairfield Inns. All have been good. This one was about average. The only negative was the a/c unit. It seemed to blow too hard, but if off, then the room was too warm. Hard to find happy medium. Staff was very helpful and location was good.

We stayed here on a family outing to meet my son who was working in B'ham. It was a nice family place to stay. Good breakfast and the lady who served us each morning was great. She always ask if she could get us anything and the breakfast was arranged very well. Good selection.

The Fairfield Inn & Suites was a convenient place to stop outside busy Birmingham on our way to New Orleans. Anxious to get settled in time to watch our team in the Elite Eight NCAA tournament, we were disappointed to find the TV in our room didn't work. The hotel was full, so we watched the game in the common... More

Overnight stay while working in the area. Nice modern looking facility with an elegant lobby and breakfast area. Room was basic but clean. Bed was comfortable. Not much else to say. Typical breakfast....

My husband and I had to book a room last minute for some renovations on our house. I chose here because everywhere else was booked and my family out of state has stayed herr and loved it. The lady at the front desk was very nice but I noticed as I was in line she was telling everyone their receipts... More

We arrived and were greeted immediately with a friendly face and a welcoming attitude. The hotel was clean as were the rooms. The breakfast was good also. The only real complaint I had was the elevator was extremely slow. Overall we had a wonderful experience and I would certainly recommend this hotel to friends and family.

It was a clean place to stay. Staff was nice and professional. The rooms were large! Breakfast hot and plentiful. So nice we recommended the hotel to two other fam. Members. My only complaint...the Jacuzzi did not work all three days we were there.

Dominique at the front desk was very pleasant and professional. He complimented me on being a Marriott Platinum member and upgraded me for free to a suite. Room was large and perfect for my quick stay. Parking was adequate. I will certainly stay here when in the area again.
