We are staying there Thursday for Mellencamp concert. How difficult is it to get a taxi from there to Uptown?
I left the hotel about 6:00am when I stayed there and there were a couple of cabs Sitting out front. You can also have the front desk call one for you if necessary.
The hotel is on the edge of downtown. I had my own transportation each time I visited but Birmingham is not so large a city that it has the typical traffic issues you see in New York or other metro areas. You could possibly even walk to your concert.
