We were pleasantly surprised with how large and well equipped this room was (#412). It had a full kitchen with stove top, fridge, microwave, dish washer, coffee maker and table with two chairs. There was a living room with desk and chair separate from the bedroom. Living room and bedroom had tvs which was very convenient. The room was very... More

Based on trip advisor reviews, I chose this hotel since we needed to be close to the UAB Hospital. I am glad I did. The hotel was about 2 minutes from the hospital yet off the beaten path so we didn't have to hear the ambulances and helicopters arriving at the Hospital. Standard Residence Inn arrangement except that the breakfast... More

The room was nice but there were no shades to cover outside lights. We had a light basically projecting into our room. So much for sleeping in on vacation. Woke up at sunrise 😡. The free breakfast was nasty. Went to local coffee shop O'henrys. Would recommend hotel based off of location and value though

I travel periodically to UAB in Birmingham and recently changed my hotel choice to the Residence Inn. I was so pleased with the facilities, location, and services that I've been back twice and plan on returning next month. It is my NEW favorite Birmingham hotel. The small apartment features a comfortable bed, small living room, and handy kitchen. The latter... More

When an unexpected maintenance problem occurred the staff was immediate in responding. Due to the severity this staff made sure we were immediately placed in another room and sending staff to help us move our luggage. The rooms were very clean and we were afforded all amenities. The location was excellent and close to the places we needed to go.... More

Overall I had a great stay. The hotel was clean, modern, and the rooms were very spacious. The staff gave us a rollaway bed at no charge when we had an additional person crash for the night. the rooms come fully furnished with plates, silverware, and cooking pots and skillets. There's a full fridge, dishwasher and 2-burner stove. The location... More

My room was very large, spacious, clean, and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was very good. The hotel gym was larger than an average hotel gym. The WiFi speed was very good. I was very pleased with this property and would definitely stay here again.

My room August 2014 was generous in space, good layout, even had a fireplace! Staff was very helpful and the breakfast had a decent selection including eggs, sausage, waffle iron, etc. Easy walking access to Five Points area with lots of dining options.
