Stayed two nights and found the staff to be pleasant and helpful. The rooms were clean. The location was great with easy walking distance to downtown Birmingham. I would definitely stay again. The hotel is reasonably priced and even though it is on a major street, we did not notice any noise. The breakfast was to Holiday Inn standards. This... More

This hotel is currently under renovations but is doing so with very little disruption to visitors as possible. I heard a few bangs but nothing too bad. Evendence that construction was happening somewhere as slightly noticable but not bad. Staff was very curtious and helpful. They even offered ear plugs if desired. How thoughtful is that? I think that once... More

Great location..lots to do and see within walking distance. Hotel is in the process of being renovated, so was a little dirtier than expected. But, overall the room we stayed in was good. Would stay here again if in the area.

I have stayed in Birmingham many times and always at the Townsend. This hotel represents very good value as it is close to the centre, has clean rooms and friendly staff.

While the property was undergoing some modest upgrading, our five-day stay in October 2013 was very pleasant. The staff could not have been more courteous or helpful—they seem very customer-focused. The breakfast room was clean and spacious; breakfast offerings were diverse and reliably tasty. The room was clean and well-tended every day. Overall, a terrific package!
