After staying here twice, I thought I found a new hotel to accommodate my needs - overlooking the outdated furniture and small televisions in relation to the price of the suite. However, this may have been my last visit to the property. I had trouble checking in on the mobile app, so I called the hotel as I was travelling,... More

Clean and comfortable. It seemed to me as if there were folks who weren't staying the hotel in the pool and parking lot. That was strange. The air conditioning worked well in our room. It was clean and adequate! The sofa bed was clean but old and not too comfortable.

I had a quick trip to Birmingham and stayed at the Residence Inn Birmingham. The location is not as downtown as it was described, it's within the UAB campus. It's clean, the staff is pleasant, but the breakfast was awful and the rec facilities were sub par. It's just OK.

With this property virtually in the shadow of UAB Hospital I can imagine much of its business is from patients' families' extended stays. We stayed only one night, but it was very pleasant. The suite-style room included an impressive kitchen area with coffee maker and coffee for a full pot instead of the stingy little machines normally found these days.... More

Enjoyed our 2 night stay. Room was clean, staff was courteous and attentive, and area around the hotel felt safe. Had no issues with parking. Breakfast was OK with hot items such as eggs, biscuit and sausage as well as fruits, cereals, etc. Hotel seemed either new or updated, a very pleasant stay overall. Will look forward to staying here... More

We had a really nice stay. The room was a very nice studio! It was quiet and the morning breakfast was delicious! The staff was friendly and helpful in directing us to a great place to eat! It is great to know there is a pleasant place to stay when we visit in downtown Birmingham!

First of all, I have stayed here before, and this was a return visit. This is a new-ish property featuring apartment-style rooms with a sitting area and kitchenette. It is close to UAB and Southside. It is a good property, especially for those who need to prepare meals in a hotel room or have an extended stay, yet even at... More

We stayed here on our way back from Florida last week and I must say I was pretty impressed. This isn't the Ritz Carlton, but for the price and what you get it was great. The location to the Five Points area which I found far more enjoyable than the heart of downtown was good. The room was really great.... More

Needed a last minute reservation in advance of a surgery. The Marriott adjacent to UAB Hospital was booked but the CSR recommended this hotel within a mile. My husband is in a wheelchair following an accident, and we weren't given a handicapped accessible room, but the regular room was perfectly laid out to accommodate us. The room was well appointed...
