I had a GREAT time staying at this property. We stayed the weekend of the Iron Bowl "Alabama vs Auburn". The staff was friendly and the room was GREAT. It even had a nice cozy fireplace that we enjoyed with friends. Everything was modern and so up to dated. Breakfast was good. Plus this is an AWESOME location to downtown!

My wife and I and an old friend stayed one night for the Eric Church concert in a suite and had a great experience. Check in was a breeze, they even called a taxi from a restaurant nearby for us to go to the concert. The next morning complementary breakfast was served which was delicious. Definitely will return to this... More

This hotel is attached to UAB Hospital. While having a loved one in patient and needing to be close, this was ideal. Five minutes from hotel room to hospital room. The accomodations were excellent. Dining was available. Made a difficult time easier.

The facility was excellent but the sink did have an odor. All was very clean so it must have been from the plumbing. Nice and restful stop with good breakfast. Parking was not covered and for downtown, it was a bit unnerving. All went well so no problem.

I booked a room at the Residence Inn on its web site as the prices were cheaper than anywhere else. The booked room was a studio with a King and sofa beds. It was quite big with a fully equipped kitchen, big flat-screen TV, free Wi-Fi (very strong signal in the room), free breakfast, and also free parking. There are... More

I reserved five rooms for a group traveling on business to Birmingham. While this should have been a simple transaction for the hotel, it turned out to be a very time consuming process. To top it off, when we arrived late in the evening to check in, we were told that the hotel was booked for the night. The hotel... More

Our stay at the Residence Inn in Downtown Birmingham was very good and I will definitely stay here again the next time I am in Birmingham. The hotel is located downtown and adjacent to UAB so it is conveniently located for downtown restaurants and major highways. In addition, I like to run in the mornings and UAB's campus is well...

This is a standard Residence Inn with average facilities. The difference is the staff, they are very helpful and cheerful and professional. Especially at the front desk, Nina answered all my questions, made taxi arrangements efficiently and had a lovely smile which was very welcome to a tired traveler. The Sitar Indian restaurant a block away is delicious.

Although this Hotel is next door to the great medical facilities at UAB we didn't stay here for that reason. We needed a centrally located lodging for personal business reasons. Excellent studio room with lots of space and full kitchen. King bed was comfortable and we slept well. Cheerful, welcoming front desk staff who recognize you and are very professional.... More
