“Shiny new downtown home away from home.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2010

This is walking distance to restaurants all the shops in 5 points. The staff takes care of us like we're family. The outdoor space will make you smile. The rooms, beds, and towels are all new and wonderful.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2010

I stayed here for three nights and I thought the rooms were fabulous. I was in a one bedroom. The living room had a kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite counters. There was a glass fireplace with a HD flat screen TV. The bed was very comfortable. The staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. The breakfast is not great, but what you would expect from a buffet, eggs, sausage, toast, waffles, etc. The only issue I had that needs to be addressed is that the curtains in the bedroom do not keep out the light and, if you want to sleep in, it gets pretty bright pretty early. If I have occasion to return to Birmingham, I will definitely return.

We stayed here for one night while traveling to town to eat at Bottega. The hostess was very nice and accomodating. All the other staff was very friendly The hotel is obviously new, so rooms are very clean. Would stay here again.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2009

From the time we got out of the car at the valet to the front desk to check in, we were just really pleased. The next morning I woke up to go down to get coffee, the ladies in the breakfast area were very happily helpful! At check out it was equally pleasing.

The room was very updated and currently decorated. The bed was luxurious and comfortable. The bathroom was spacious. They are true suites with the bedroom separate from the living space. There are tables, and a full kitchen that allows for any level of cooking on your own. I can't say enough about this hotel. I would stay here again in an instant.

The only reason I gave the location a lower score is that it wasn't convenient for what we were doing, but the UAB proximity is obviously a good location for others depending on what you are coming into town for.
