This hotel does the Marriott brand proud. Customer service is impeccable. Great location with lots of dining options within walking distance. The hotel offers free breakfast every morning, appetizer night once a week and dinner twice a week. They even have free grocery delivery service which helped me a great deal trying to eat healthy. Room is spacious, clean and... More

A little bit disappointed this visit. I've stayed here multiple times in the past and always had a great stay. This time was different. Last time I stayed here, I received a room with a fireplace. The website states “fireplace” under Room amenities for the 1 bedroom suites so I assumed this was the case with all rooms and booked... More

We found the front desk to be friendly and helpful. We loved our adjoining rooms and the kitchens were adequate for our needs. The space was well planned and the gas fireplace was an added surprise. We all loved our breakfasts and found interesting selections.

This is the standard Residence Inn. Slightly retro with the room layout, furniture set (style, color) that mirror those in other Mariotts. My room was on the 5th floor; clean, noise minimal. The comforter was too hot, it'd be nice to have a separate sheet + blanket available as in many other hotels. The free WiFi may have been faster... More

Nice area. Seems to be the best one out of the rest on that street. Breakfast great. Some staff not very personable, didn't speak. But other than that, I enjoyed my stay and i do recommend. I'll be back!

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.
