There are essentially two hotels in Birmingham: the luxury hotel Townsend and the Holiday Inn Express. If you don't want to spend $300+ for a room, you stay at the Holiday Inn, which runs just over $100 per night. The positives are: it's within walking distance of all of the restaurants and shops in Birmingham, you can have decent food... More

I went in Birmingham for 4 weeks Business Trip and stayed in Holiday Inn Express. The friendly and helpful staff (especially Charmaine and the very good breakfast buffet she prepares each morning) and the clean and quiet rooms made me feel like I'm home. The breakfast area is always clean and has all kind of breakfast you want. The gym... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel while attending a wedding in Detroit this month. The hotel was renovating its lobby so we entered through a makeshift back entrance. After this inauspicious start, we had low expectations for our room. We were delightfully surprised! The room had obviously been recently redecorated. It was so warm and comfortable. The beds...

I stayed here recently while on a short business trip. My check-in went very well. Walter handled the details and he was friendly yet very efficient. He suggested I grab a free bottle of water from the refrigerator close by, on my way to the elevator- a nice touch. I also grabbed a free newspaper. Apparently there has been some... More

We just completed a 2-night stay at this property. We had a Queen room confirmed, but when our flight was delayed, they graciously moved our reservation to the next day with an early check-in, but had to move us to a King. Imagine our surprise upon checking in that there had been no internal communication, our room had been re-sold,... More
