Front desk staff, and management were very rude. The only thing nice about the hotel was the lobby. The room itself barely compared to a motel 6 and the carpets smell. Don't waste your time or money. Don't waste your money. You get better value, & service at the Hyatt Wynfrey, and they are attached to the mall.

The staff was great from the time we arrived til we left, my wife keeps complementing the bistro staff, the room was cleaned well the rooms had accommodating space and the walls are a little thin. Wife really enjoyed the Starbucks.

The place was nice. Very clean and updated. Sleek. The staff were accommodating and super friendly. My problem lies with the actual room!!!! The shower was a handheld ( which I hate, but can understand the need for handicapped). My fridge did not work, the room had a terribly sweet smell( outside flowers?) No breakfast bar. Outrageous cafe that serves... More

Visited Alabama for the first time and southern hospitality really lived up to the hype. I stay at a lot of hotels and this staff has to be one of the most friendly and helpful I have experienced. Upon check in, I was met with a smiling and cheerful welcome. I felt a valued guest. My room #210 was spacious,... More

This isn't a bad place. The rooms are pretty large and adequately comfortable, although there aren't any frills. My room was very clean. The toiletries are in annoyingly small containers but high quality. Towels are big not new. Front desk service was friendly but seemed not very well trained. The hotel has a very odd layout, though - with elevators... More

This hotel has been around for a long time, you can't beat the location but the hotel could use some upgrades. It is very clean, checking and staff very pleasant so what else can you ask for. Close to shopping and food. Easy access to Hwy 280 so I will stay here again.

I am writing this review after being referred to this hotel by Brookwood Medical Center since their own hotel is no longer open. We had already booked this hotel the previous weekend and used a voucher for 2 nights due to a family member being in ICU. The price we were quoted was $118/night for a senior. I again called...

Stayed at the hotel for a state meeting. I was supposed to get either the meeting rate of the state rate. I have stayed there many years for this same meeting since it is close to the meeting site.

We stayed here in late July. Clean, updated room, and great beds. Kids enjoyed solitude of the pool since most guests are there on business travel. Bistro was great with full Starbucks service. After we checked out and started our drive we realized we forgot our phone and staff were very helpful and found it right away.
