We stayed here on Friday, July 19. It is located in the downtown area, very convenient to UAB and the 5 points area that offers a variety of restaurants from fast food to fine dining and nightlife. The Residence property is superior and very well maintained. Front desk personnel were very friendly and attentive and helpful. Our room was typical... More

Since my first review, I have returned another three times. This has become my go-to hotel in Birmingham, and as long as the great service from Nina, Chelsea, and the rest of the staff continues, I will always come back. Nina has gone above and beyond more than once, and certainly made this hotel feel like home.

Stayed here for business trip at St. Vincent's Hospital. Very convenient. Rooms were clean. Staff friendly. Breakfast included and was decent. Happy hour dinner was very welcome on Monday after a very long day and absolutely no desire to go out. Would stay here again

Birmingham is a great town, and this Residence Inn is perfectly located in the heart of the city. Barring traffic, you are 15 minutes from anywhere in Jefferson County. Lots of great places to eat and socialize within walking distance of the hotel. The Galleria is just minutes away. The service at the Residence Inn was exceptional. Every staff member... More

Location was only about 10 minutes away from the Birmingham Convention Center. The room was very clean & spacious!! It was also so quiet, great for us that were just wanting to get away from the every day rush. I would go here again if I ever want to just go run, hide, & find a nice quiet place to... More

Prior to my arrival I requested non-down pillows given my allergy to down. When I arrived, there were no acceptable pillows. I called down to the front desk and one of the staff... More

Room selection and design is great for relaxing in after a long day of activities. Front desk remembered my name from two days ago and has provided fantastic service. Seeing as I travel for work three out of four weeks a month, I know hotels and the Residence Inns are one of my absolute favorites.
