My family and I stayed here last weekend and had an enjoyable experience. We went out Saturday evening and when we came back that night, everyone apparently left their key in the room. When we went to the front desk, we had the pleasure of meeting Torie who not only has a great personality, but was also very nice and... More

Torie was an outstanding person. She kept a smile on her face. Was very helpful and also help us to find a wonderful room on the 3rd flow. She's a great worker! She very hardworking! Torie was a beautiful girl ☺ I will most def. ask for her in my next visit.

There is no way I can give this hotel less than 5 stars. My husband had to travel to Birmingham for a training and his job paid for 1 night at this Marriot. The night before his trip I told him I wanted to go with him and my 2 kids ( 14,7). We had to make a 6 hour... More

I was in town for workshop at UAB children's hospital. This location was in walking distance of UAB. The staff were friendly on arrival and helpful. I would especially like to give an extra thanks to Shaun Reed at the front desk. Robert and Sam in the hotel bistro we're excellent as well. The hotel was clean, safe and comfortable.... More

As a bridesmaid in a wedding this was a wonderful choice of location. The armchairs have fold out beds! No more roll-a-way bed requests. The staff was amazing and even helped us out on a few non-hotel wedding issues to make sure our bride stayed on schedule. Torie, Rosie, and Assistant Manager Joshua Castle were great! We temporarily lost the... More

I recently had a few meetings in Birmingham and realized the ideal location to stay for this trip and subsequent trips is the Courtyard Marriott. This hotel is a standard Courtyard and like all of the hotels in the chain it has been upgraded with a new comfortable lobby and Bistro cafe...this made it ideal for meeting clients. I also... More

Very clean rooms. Nice décor. The Bistro has a nice selection for breakfast. The front desk staff, Torie and Shaun are always very professional and helpful. Walking distance to all of the hospital and parking deck attached. I'm looking forward to my next stay!

The problem that i had was no pool, but... More

Only here twice. First time a couple of years ago, it was being renovated. Much was done and they clearly tried to make the work as little bothersome as possible. Second visit work was complete and it was nice and modern. Nothing noticeably close by except hotel so I had to drive to eat meals.

Thank you for staying with us. Yes, we have been recently renovated which added a Bistro style restaurant that is open for breakfast and dinner. But if you would like something different then our front desk staff is always at hand to provide you with multiple dining options within walking distance of our hotel. More
