This is an awesome place to stay at while having to go to UAB !!! We do every time I have appointments. It's just that the parking lot at times can be a pain to find a spot !!! Very helpful & friendly people for sure !!!!

We needed a place just to sleep over on our way to Houston and opted for this property as it looked easy to get to from the highway. We were right. It's in a quiet part of the city. Out the door of the hotel there are a couple restaurants close by. The area felt quite safe and easy to... More

I can highly recommend this Residence Inn. Clean, quite new, great service. One of the lightbulbs burned out and they fixed it quickly once I notified the front desk. Speaking of lights, the power buttons for the lights are all quite intuitive, which is a nice change from most hotels. Front desk service is impeccable. Hopefully you will get the... More

This hotel is contemporary - very comfortable- walking distance to great restaurants- 10 min from airport! There is a shuttle to and from airport every 30 min so we did not need to rent a car. The hotel staff was so accommodating and friendly - the hotel restaurant was really good- and other very nice restaurants walking distance away.

Check-in was very pleasant and efficient and Martin called up to my room a little while after I had arrived to ensure everything was fine - a nice touch. The suite was lovely and well-appointed. It looks very new and is spotlessly clean. The service that followed was absolutely amazing. Soon after arriving, I realized that my contact lense solution... More

We spent the weekend here and loved it! The room is very large and clean. The staff very friendly and breakfast was great! This is pretty much in walking distance to Five Points where all the great Restaurants are! We loved it!

Stayed here in July 2014 for a family reunion. The rooms were very clean and spacious. It was very quiet. The beds were awesome. The breakfast and service was fantastic. There was one lady that made me laugh every morning at breakfast. Wish I could remember her name, but she was so helpful. Everything was so clean. They made us... More

I was greeted by Nina at the front desk who is so cheerful, helpful and friendly after driving 7 hours in the horrible rain. Very pleasant surprise to be greeted by such warmth! I immediately was impressed with the lobby, suites, and all facilities...the cleanliness. Breakfasts were delicious and an array of food items while evenings were a treat with... More

I was only there 1 night, but the hotel is wonderful! The front desk staff was welcoming and friendly. The lobby, elevators, halls and room were spotless! I did not use the pool or exercise facilities, but they looked nice. The free breakfast was yummy and the dining area comfortable. The only downside was that there were no vending machines... More

When traveling for business I love staying at a Reidence Inn. It's like staying in an apartment. I like that I can prepare my own food and not worry about going out every night! Also,the fitness center was well equipped! The nightly socials were very nice and the selection of foods were awesome! But to top it off, Customer service... More
