My father, sister, and I stayed 5 nights while my mother was at UAB Hospital. My father needed handicapped access, and the staff worked very well with us. They were accommodating, friendly, and always offering to help. From reservations, they followed up to make sure we had the room that would best suit us. Housekeeping was friendly and mindful for...

Right next to UAB medical center, you don't even have to walk outside. Was greeted warmly by Leah, who helped me a couple of times during my stay. The room was large and comfortable with supportive beds, clean bathroom with a good shower. The room was quiet despite my second floor location, and I was worried given the proximity to... More

The hotel staff from the desk clerks, to the breakfast server to the maintenance guy are incredibly nice and the location is OK, but I wouldn't recommend it. The Courtyard is right across the street from UAB Hospital, so it's a great location for families visiting patients. And, because the hotel's right across from the hospital, expect to hear ambulance... More

My husband and I paid $378 for two nights. I am a gold Marriott member and am accustomed to a least a minimum of amenities. Checking in at 3PM, the king room wasn't yet made up and it would take 30 minutes of waiting, so we opted for a room with two queens. We were away from our room from... More

I was in town for a quick business meeting, and this hotel came highly recommended. I must say I agree with the recommendation, the hotel is in a great location and walking distance from many places to eat. The parking is right next door and the hotel staff is great.

My son was in a horrific accident in Grenada and was airlifted to UAB. On the advice of customer care at UAB we stayed at this hotel. It is connected to the UAB main hospital so there is quick access to your loved ones there. The parking garage is right by the hotel. The staff is polite and helpful. I... More

Really enjoyed our stay last weekend. The rooms are nice and the bathrooms are big. We had two adults and two teenagers and had plenty of room. Staff was friendly and helpful. Loved having the parking garage so close. Will stay again.

If you need to be close to UAB hospital, then this hotel would be very convenient. However we were in town for a sports event and wish we had stayed somewhere else. Due to being next to the hospital, it is not a quiet place! We were awakened repeatedly during the night by ambulances and helicopters. Room was large and... More

Lisa E, thank you for sharing your experience with me. Please accept my apologies for the lack of services provided by my team. We are located next to the Medical Center so noise can be an issue.

This hotel's ok...I've stayed a number of times, and other than a few noisy room heaters the property is decent EXCEPT for the incredibly slow elevators with the ridiculously loud bell/buzzer. It's not just annoying when you're in the elevator, but I've had to change rooms because if you're anywhere near the elevator shaft, you can hear the buzz as... More

Stayed here Jan 12 2014 as an overnight on the way to Florida. Rooms were clean and comfortable and location was convenient to several dining options. The hot breakfast was very good and reasonably priced. Would stay here again..
