The Hotel Highlands is ideally located - right in the Five Points eating/pub district - close to many things in Birmingham. We stayed at The Highlands for a parents weekend at BSC and it was perfect. Nice change of pace from the large corporate/convention center hotels. It is a smaller, quirky property - we got upgraded to a suite which... More

On arrival we were upgraded to a suite, which was of course very nice. The hotel building is rather old with somewhat noisy air-conditioning but the suite provided us with plenty of room and a nice comfortable bed. The bathroom was adequate with a combined bath/shower but low sided bath, making access to the shower relatively easy. The hotel staff... More

This renovated older urban hotel suits our needs and it has become a regular stopping point for us. The value is particularly good for our family when a suite helps us out. The suites are particularly ample with enormous bedrooms and smaller parlor a which is down the hall from the sleeping area. They come with fridge and micro and... More

Outstanding experience. Very pleasant staff. Room was very nicely appointed. The property is a true gem. Entry area and bar are warm and welcoming. Highly recommend this hotel for business travel. Conveniently situated in a very nice neighborhood.

This is an excellent choice for business or pleasure you really feel pampered. There is someone at the door at all times and all the young ladies at the front desk are so helpful. The breakfast even with the usual choices is very tasty I really can't recommend highly enough.

We recently have had to make several trips to UAB for medical reasons. As always it is "hit or miss" when you don't know the city and you're looking for a hotel.

We wanted a nice place to stay convenient to attending a concert at Alys Stephens. The Hotel Highland met that need. From our experience this is a great facility. I would give it a 4.5 if I could. Valet parking was quick and painless. Check in was the same. Every person we encountered during our stay was friendly and courteous.... More
