Stayed here on a friends recommendation and really enjoyed our stay. Parking can be an issue downtown,but the valet is the way to go. It is an older building but has been updated nicely keeping the feel of a luxury from the past . The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. You can walk... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night as we were needing a place to be in Birmingham. I got a discounted rate online and didn’t know the hotel name before I booked. The hotel has a small lobby and check in area, along with a bar and breakfast area. Decor is on the contemporary side of things but was... More

We were in Birmingham for an art fair and stayed in a suite. The living room portion was laid out well but there was a cool light fixture over the sink/coffee area that had a red light bulb installed. Cool effect but you can't see a darn thing. The staff was really nice and Barron, the bartender was delightful. He... More

The Hotel Highland is perfectly located for a visit to downtown Birmingham. The small street frontage belies the beautiful building and luxuries within. The morning of our two-day visit I received a call from the staff asking if I would like a free upgrade to a luxury king suite with a separate living area and pull out couch. Yes please!... More

My husband and I decided to get away for the weekend to celebrate our 30th anniversary of the date we met. Five points has so much to do and wonderful restaurants, so we decided to stay right there so we could just walk everywhere. The Hotel Highlands is a great little hotel that reminded me of hotels I stayed in... More

Hotel is located near Five Points, a neighborhood that appears to this 1st time visitor, a bit run down. There are a mixture of bars, restaurants, and tattoo parlors in the immediate area. We parked in the public garage behind the hotel as suggested by another reviewer for $4 for the overnight parking vs. the $16 valet parking. From the... More

Stayed 2 nights in the Hotel Highland at Five Points and loved it. Sure, it is an old building, but it has great character and a soul! I loved the décor -- very cool, sort of "Mad Men" -- and the location is super. Every staff person I ran into during my stay was cordial, cheerful and professional. It's nice... More

Stayed here just one night while visiting UAB. It's convenient to the campus, so served the purpose well. Overall the room was quite clean, and I liked the "pillow menu" - a choice of different pillow styles from soft down to firm foam. Different people like different pillows so this really helps. On the downside, the hotel is showing its... More

My friends and I got ready here and a few of us stayed overnight for a bachelorette party. The hotel is older but nicely modernized with decor. The room (a king suite) was huge and plenty of room for 10 of us to get ready for the night. It was within walking distance to great restaurants and bars. The room... More

It was clean and quiet. Breakfast was good. Hotel was close to UAB hospital. the location was near the heart of downtown. The valet was worth the $16.00 we came back late and they still parked the car for us. We need the car early and they brought the car to us. Helpful staff.
