After our stellar experience at CBM's in Little Rock and Tulsa, we had high expectations when we booked this hotel on a trip through Birmingham. We picked it because it was easy to access right off the interstate and there appeared to be several restaurants nearby. Unfortunately, although it had been updated, it was still not the best.

The folks at the front desk were out of their way friendly, personable and professional getting me checked in, making sure my room was to my liking and just all around great.

Right off HWY 280. Very clean, comfortable beds. Nice bistro. Convenient to restaurants and shopping. The traffic on HWY 280 is awful. Travel the back roads to the hotel to avoid the bumper to bumper during rush hours.

I'm currently staying at this Courtyard for the first time. It's an older property, but recently renovated. Indoor pool-- if that's your thing. What sets this hotel apart is the staff.

What a great experience. I checked in & discovered that my mattress was going to be too soft (I'd called ahead and asked for a firm bed, because I've had a back injury). I've been in hotels where they couldn't care less, and I've had to sleep on the floor. Not here: Profuse apologies, and everyone immediately went to work... More

Arrived at 8pm and was promptly greeted with a winning smile by Carmen. She directed me to the Bistro which was open until 10 pm which was awesome because I was starving. Room was decent but I should have asked for a room not facing the highway...I should sleep fine though. So far all is well!

I recently stayed at this hotel while in town for a funeral. After a day of work and a 6 hour drive, I was ready to relax!

Stayed here on a business trip. Drove to the property at night, with GPS, and it was still hard to find. The front of the hotel is actually the back, as it faces away from the main drag. The negatives: hard to find, no microwave, no small sitting table in the room; the positives: very nice indoor pool and "spa"... More
