Very conveniently located downtown across from the hospital. My room was extremely clean and comfortable with friendly, helpful staff. Great service in attending to my requests promptly. Several restaurants are located within close walking distance. Free parking with ticket validation. I will stay again!

Conviently located to the Birmingham medical centers, UAB Hospital, VA Medical Center, and Children's Hospital, the Marriott Courtyard mixes easy access with a comfortable atmosphere. Like most Courtyard properties, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere is modern, lively, and inviting. A great place to stay for your downtown business.

Stayed for four nights to support our parents who were in UAB hospital. Excellent location as we could park the car in the lot (free with validation) and walk using the sky bridges all around the hospital campus. Very clean hotel with very helpful and friendly staff. Great experience will be back for sure.

Stayed here because of easy access to hospital otherwise I wouldn't have paid this much for a room. Refrigerator didn't work and pillows were way too small. Ask for extra if you decide to stay here. The bed was great and the shower had great water pressure.

Okay, a Marriott Courtyard is generally a Marriott Courtyard. This was pretty much the same as far as layout, room size and quality, etc., but where the Downtown UAB locations stands out is the quality of their staff. We were in Birmingham for a concert down the street at Iron City, so picked this Courtyard due to location. We had... More

I had 3 family members at UAB following a plane crash. For those of us caring for them, having the hotel right there was huge. Our hours were very erratic and being able to sleep when needed was great. Took a lot of the stress off. Also meant we all didn't need to have a car.

The room was very clean, cool and comfortable. Their Staff was sweet and helpful. We will stay again next time. It is the closest hotel to UAB and shares a parking garage. They give a great patient discount.

Especially for UAB employees. Staff was friendly and experienced. The rooms was fine. A/C unit worked but had a "musty" smell. There was complimentary parking for guests. All around very good! Does not have an upscale restaurant, which is the only downside.

I can't give a low enough rating for a hotel that had only lukewarm water when I needed a hot shower. When I called the front desk to make this issue know, here's the enlightened comment I got: "Maybe everybody got back to the hotel at the same time and is using the water. Try running the water for 10... More
