I visit friends and family fairly often in this area and have stayed at this hotel a few times before. There was not a lot of changes since my last visit - clean rooms, friendly staff and and overall great value. The only thing that stood out this time around was I got an opportunity to meet the manager. She... More

Unfortunately, the fire alarms at this property are set off by a small amount of steam and are poorly located immediately outside of the bathroom. When you take a hot shower, the fire alarms go off. It truly is ridiculous. I heard other guests' fire alarms going off as well! My fire alarm went off for 20 minutes while staff... More

Elevator was filthy, that should have been my first clue. Bathroom was very dirty. The floor, shower, door and walls were visibly very dirty. I wrote a note to the maid and their was improvement. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would not stay at this hotel again.

Comfortable, clean hotel. Great location -- easy walk to Birmingham's shops and restaurants. Bring your own sheets. The hotel sheets -- a poor quality muslin, slipped off the bed and we found ourselves sleeping on the bare mattress when we awoke. When I complained, the hotel did put on a new set of sheets -- but we didn't want to... 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?
