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

This Courtyard is located in downtown Birmingham with a connected walkway to UAB. The hotel also shares the parking garage with UAB, which makes parking less expensive (USD 6/ day), but also means more traffic. We experienced friendly check-in and staff. The hotel and the room appeared to be clean. Room #304 turned out to be a spacious room with... More

Stayed for business in the area, expecting a typical courtyard, and that it is, in terms of furnishings and amenities. Nothing to be excited for, but nothing lacking. The rooms are typical of this chain, but definitely lack enough soundproofing for the location. The hotel is next to a major hospital in a hospital district (think, ambulances all night long,...

Nice front desk staff and helpful too. Rosey was particularly helpful as we checked in Room had initial over powering smell of air freshner. Room was very clean, bathroom needed a little attention. Convenient to UAB and Regions Ball Field

Perfect place to stop for night. Went to game at Regions Field and watched the fireworks. Staff was helpful and rooms were clean. Nice hotel. Would stay here again. Perfect to get on and off highway. Seems like a good place for UAB hospital people to use

I stayed at the Marriott last week and there was some excellent things that I could say about the hotel especially the way I was treated when I walk through the door. The male guest clerk Trevion made sure that I knew all the details about the hotel; subject to last visit I didn't get that information. I wasn't rush... More

Fairly good place room was clean, you have to pay to park in UAB hospital parking lot but we had no problem getting parked and to the room. We only talked to one girl at front desk she was very friendly and eager to answer our questions, validate parking etc. The only issue we had was we tried for several... More

Parking Garage was nice, felt safe for being downtown. Staff was great, rooms were clean. Denny's was less than block, great breakfast. Stayed on points so can't comment on price. Would stay again if passing thru. Easy access to interstate made easy to continue trip.
