I am business traveler for over 30 years and I never experience which I received at this hotel. It is worst service and professionalism in my business travel experience. I would not stay at this hotel when there are other choices of hotels in the area.

Not the best place I've stayed in Birmingham or even Homewood. However the location is nice. It is the older Courtyard format where it is literally built around a central yard with a pool. The pros are you can park close to your room. The cons are that there can be a lot of walking from the lobby to your... More

I stayed here during a teachers' conference at Samford. It was a dark and rainy night, so it was great to get into a quiet, warm, and comfortable hotel room. Some of my group reported that finding the hotel was a bit of a challenge from the directions as the way the roads run down the mountain the hotel is... More

Stayed 2 nights while in Birmingham for business. Same amentites as most other Courtyard locations. Cafe and dining available. Room was nice, clean, comfortable bed. Bathroom definitely wasn't like other updated Courtyard locations. Was clean, but just a standard bathtub with shower. I prefer the new bathrooms with walk-in shower and giant glass door. Hotel was nice and worked for... More

Very pleasant front desk attendant. Advised me on a great restaurant nearby. Great value and close to my work destination. Conveniently located next to a shopping area, Fresh market and Target. Nice rooms. Easy access to my car. Very quiet. I had a Good night's sleep. Lobby and restaurant seemed very nice too.

This is an original Courtyard layout. Room has the older brownish red interior. Remodeled lobby with Bistro. And as always a very welcoming staff. Shopping center and Shell gas station across the street. Outside rooms can be a little noisy compared to the inside Courtyard rooms.

Probably a 3.5 from me, though I'm rounding up because the staff is so nice. Location: very good, especially for business travelers. There's a mall across the highway that has a Target, a Macys and several restaurants which is very nice if you don't have a car. Rooms: appear to be recently remodeled, as is the lobby. My room was... More

I stayed here two nights for business purposes. Hotel is very clean, room was nice, staff very friendly and helpful. The hotel has both a pantry area and bistro with Starbucks coffee available. I didn't use the weight room or pool so no comment on those. All in all a very good stay and I would stay here again.

Room are acceptably mediocre. Amenities decent. Location and parking excellent. But the reception staff greets guests with, at best, a chilly, unwelcoming and unhelpful demeanor. Who needs that? Other better places to stay to avoid the attitude - recommend aloft, westin, Hampton inn.

Stayed here while visiting colleges with my daughter. Easiest, most courteous check in I've ever experienced. Room did not look as new or sleek as the lobby, but it was clean, well appointed and roomy. Bed was extremely comfortable and provided a wonderful rest after a long day traveling. Hotel was quiet in spite of being quite full. From the... More
