We needed a place on short notice for a surgery scheduled very early in the morning, to keep from having to travel far we booked this hotel. What a nice place!!! Will recommend this place highly. Only drawback we encountered is the parking garage that belongs to another entity. So if you park behind the hotel, make sure you are... More

I write this review with the bottom line being that there were a couple things we did not like but would give another chance. The location is great! Several of the best restaurants in town are but a short walk and the neighborhood is strikingly attractive. The staff are friendly and very courteous. The hotel has a sweet boutique feel... More

An older hotel with lots of character. Everything I need was on the first floor including a nice breakfast spread, valet parking, bar/meeting area and a nice front desk staff. Internet, when I found the correct signal, tested good at >5mb. The trick is to find correct login. Plenty of TV channels via cable, albeit non HD analog picture. The... More

We arrived and had car valeted. Service was great. Front desk was also very nice. There was a bar in the lobby, very small and not much happening. Our room had a great view of the city and was very quite. Great bed. Nicely decorated.

Was a wonderful experience. Quiet, clean, and close to the hospital. For other hotels in the area, the price was competitive. The breakfast is worth the stay. Very polite and friendly staff. As many have said, you can use the parking deck, but be sure to bring cash with you to pay the machine if you are leaving before/after parking... More

Recently in Birmingham for a wedding, and booked a room in this centrally located hotel, which was close to The Highlands restaurant. The lobby area is not large, but cute, clean and quirky. staff were polite and our suite was awesome! Two separate rooms looped around the bathroom, with two tvs. Totally worth the extra few dollars for the upgrade.... More

We just stayed there for a night. The hotel is located in Five Points South, which is a district of Birmingham with restaurants and locals and is in a walking distance from UAB campus. There is also a parking lot with a valet service. The room was very big and is full of all comforts: kitchen with all necessary appliances,... More

I really like Highlands at 5 points. The hotel is showing the slightest bit of wear but really nice overall, just a few touch ups and it would be perfect. Friendly staff, a good breakfast in the morning that had warm eggs, boiled eggs, fruit, waffles, cereals and more. Great location for walking to restaurants and bars. Go to Dave's... More

Stayed here twice this month. Great stay both times. An excellent location if you have medical appointments at UAB. Staff always friendly, they know us by name now. Property close to lots of great eateries. Thanks for taking care of us, see you again soon.
