The Hampton Inn and Suites Birmingham - Hoover - Galleria is larger than a typical Hampton Inn and very conveniently located for shopping or work in the Riverchase Galleria neighborhood. It is also a convenient location for people staying in town for events at Regions Park.
The hotel is very clean and very comfortable. There is a very large breakfast area with very helpful staff. The rooms are clean and typical of the "new" Hampton Inn design. There is a multi outlet plug on one of the bedside tables - a great addition in this wired age. The only negative comment on the room is that the vent seemed high / loud and was difficult to put on a low setting.
The hotel is very conveniently located to the Riverchase Galleria, as I have noted, and as such there are many restaurant choices near the hotel. However, except for Jason's Deli, because of the general lack of sidewalks and crosswalks, to safely arrive at the restaurants, one must drive, which is a bit of a disappointment for someone arriving at the hotel after a day of work, meetings, or driving. There is a set of steps and a short sidewalk to the southwest of the hotel that ends at the parking lot for the small strip center in which Jason's Deli and a frozen yogurt shop are located. Elsewise, plan to drive to your dining location.
The hotel website and GPS directions are easy for the first time guest to follow. If one is arriving from the southwest (ie, northbound on I-459) or departing to the southwest (ie, departing southbound on I-459 towards Tuscaloosa), one will have to drive John Hawkins Parkway for slightly more than two miles. While somewhat of a slower approach than via interstate, I did not find too much congestion during my 5:15 pm arrival. For guests arriving from the northeast / departing to the northeast on I-459 or to / from I-65 via I-459, the hotel is easily accessed via Exit 13A / Galleria Blvd from I-459, and with a quick on ramp departure.
