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

We spent one night here, it was perfect for the price....location was great for bars and restaurants....staff were outstanding and friendly....the room was clean and modern. Other people did mention the parking in their reviews, we did have a space, but parking seemed to be limited. Next time we go to Birmingham this will be the first place we look... More

This Residence Inn is close to UAB and close to the 5 Points Entertainment District. The rooms are large, comfortable and clean. The Wifi is free. So what more could you ask for? - How about a place to park the car? We stayed on a Friday and Saturday night. Both nights, when we got to the hotel at about... More

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
