“When Your Away From Home, You Can This Hotel Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

To the traveler who might have the opportunity to visit Birmingham and all of her glory, please feel that this hotel will allow you a place to call home-from-home. I spend 95% of my time away from my own home and when I stay there, I know the staff is always happy and will do whatever it takes to make me as well. When in town, try their delicious food, see a movie and come back to a room with an awesome bed and amenities. And NO, I wasn't paid for this entry. The guys/gals are so sweet and kind.

My 15 year old granddaughter wanted to know if everyone in Alabama was as friendly as the staff in Birmingham. Thought that was a nice compliment. We were pleased with the accommodations and refreshments in the lobby.

Great place to stay - you get what you pay for, room was nice and clean air was turned on so i did not walk into a hot stinky room - bed where nice and comfortable - plenty of places to eat so no need drive to fare for dinner. Hotel location was great too not to close to down town but close enough

Other than the Air conditioning reverting back to heat it was a great experience. It may have been me messing it up but they reset it remotely back to A/C. Quite, very clean and nice. Staff very helpful. Check in and out was very fast. The fresh made veggie omelets in the kitchen were AWESOME!!!

Our stay was fine; friendly staff, clean room, fair value. There were a few controllable items that prompted the average rating. The ac fan was noisy and would not stay on long enough to act as white noise. The indoor pool was chilly compared to other Hilton stays. These are minor and not a show stopper. We would return if in the area again.

Our experience was very nice. Staff is very nice. Room was clean and breakfast was delicious. Just what I would expect from a HGI. It is located near interstate and several restaurants are within easy walk, but we drove 10 minutes into Homewood for Greek meal at Do Di Yo's. Yum. Last time we enjoyed Italian at Gianmarco's. Equally yum!
