Really, really nice staff (I could go on and on about the valet, the front desk, the man who came to clean up the fridge), very attractive room with nice kitchenette. Lots of fun restaurants within easy walking distance. LOVED Nick and Jim’s (?) BBQ and Insomnia Cookies, less than a block away. Bummer that the hotel bar was closed... More

This quaint hotel in downtown Birmingham is really, really nice. I highly recommend it to anyone staying in that area. Its in a perfect location, with bars and places to eat within walking distance. I had reserved a room with two double beds, and when we checked in and got to the room was pleasantly surprised to be in a... More

In town to eat at Highland Grill or the other Stitt and friends' killer dining in B'ham? Go no further than Hotel Highland, which is walking distance to a great number of the best Chef-owned eateries in the southeast. Smallish rooms with nothing fancy, but the cleanliness and comfort is top-drawer. Service is very polite as well. And the quirky... More

My husband and I were very impressed with the comfort, cleanliness, spaciousness and hospitality offered at the recently renovated Hotel Highland. We loved being downtown. Our room had a view of the Vulcan! We were traveling with our 16 month old baby to our college reunion, and the room was ideal since it consisted of a separate living room (where... More

Situated in a vibrant part of downtown Birmingham, Hotel Highlands is a wonderful find. The rates are good and the staff is friendly. I needed a room at the last minute, and they accommodated me right on the spot. The room was clean and a good size. Only issue was the tub seemed to drain slowly, but that could have... More

The Hotel Highland's decor is beautiful yet cool. The staff helpful and kind. Groovy college neighborhood with fun pubs nearby. Go with the valet parking, makes life easier. Enjoyed our stay and would stay again!

Okay for the price, but better value in Bham. Got a corner room ugrade without asking, but for the price and because we paid full frieght on their website, not unusual. Corner room on second floor is spacious. Valet is $16.00, after reading reviews could have got a $4 rate at a parking garage behind the hotel. I would have... More

Overall I had a very nice stay at Hotel Highlands. The staff in particular were very friendly and attentive. They answered all the questions I had and assisted us with getting a cab (which is neigh impossible in Bham). The property itself is on the older side, but they've made some renovations in the last few years. The room I... More

Stayed here one night while traveling through Alabama. The hotel was in a cute neighborhood with several bars and restaurants within walking distance. The building has been colorfully renovated although some aspects of the hotel are still a little dated and rough around the edges (bathrooms, elevators). We managed to get a suite that was very spacious and comfortable, although... More

I love staying here! The rooms are clean and cute. The front desk staff is great. There is a parking deck right behind the hotel that is very easy to access that only cost $4/day. I won't stay anywhere else in Birmigham!
