I love staying at Residence for the full size fridge and stovetop. Everything was great and the room clean and fresh smelling. The only complaint I would have is the parking. If you arrive late, you may have to park on the street.

We stay at the hotel a couple times a year and have always had a great clean room and the staff is very good. The hotel is within walking distance of great food and nightlife. Parking is our only issue.

We stayed one night on our way to FL. Our experience at this hotel was just OK. We didn't hate it, but we are also not racing to hurry back. Average room, average breakfast, average hotel parking. Average. My sister and her hubby got stuck in the elevator the night of our stay. So, there was that. It was fine... More

Very nice room and beautifully appointed hotel. Everything met my high expectations. Downtown and the civil rights area are radial accessible by car and public transportation. We had no problem with parking. I highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Birmingham.

We were visiting Birmingham to see the Elton John concert and we didn't want to have to make the long drive back home after the concert, so we booked this hotel. Even though the hotel is billed as being within walking distance of the BJCC, it's more than a mile away, which is a stroll during the day, but a... More

We are located 1.68 miles from the BJCC which is on the north side of Birmingham. I apologize if you were given incorrect information on the distance from the hotel. We typically recommend a cab to the BJCC to all of our guests, as it is a busy area during concerts. We apologize that you experienced ambulance noise during your... More

I've stayed at the property numerous times over the past few years. Staff is always very helpful and friendly. Rooms are spacious, clean and updated. Only downside is their slightly limited parking area behind the hotel mixed in with other buildings.

This place became my home for a month, after a tree damaged my house. They kept my room spotless throughout my stay. Hotel staff couldn't have been nicer. Breakfast in the morning was really good, although I started getting tired of it toward the end (pretty much same thing every other day). Very convenient to 5 Points area, Iron City,... More

I have stayed at this property many times on business. It is always good. The staff will do what they can to see to your needs. The bedding is always very good. My big complaint is that they have started charging for parking.

Stayed at this hotel recently for business. Nice hotel and a good representation of the Residence Inn chain. Spacious and clean rooms. Felt "new". Location is decent, a bit farther from downtown than some other hotels. Reasonably priced. Heard some outside noise of a restaurant. Friendly staff.
