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...

Stayed here for an overnight trip to see a band at Iron City. Room was very clean and tidy, and everything was up-to-date. Though we didn't use it, the little kitchen area looked like it had just about everything you would need to cook in the room. There was a huge continental breakfast in the lobby; it looked good but... More

Stayed here on a business trip and the room was big and spacious . Room had a full fridge, kitchen area had a small stove and dishwasher also nice granite counter tops. Will certainly stay here next time I am in Birmingham. The staff was great to work with. The exercise room was actually pretty good for a hotel.

A real short drive from the reception venue for the wedding we attended. Everything from sleep quality to cleanliness was what you'd want. Caveats? It was a weekend so on Sunday morning the breakfast area was pretty chaotic with kids moving at full tilt all the time when not lining up again and again to pile their plates with food... More

This Residence Inn does an excellent job of providing reasonable accommodations at a very affordable price. It's not fancy, but the rooms are clean and nice, there is free WiFi, and breakfast is included. The location is great -- right next to UAB, walking distance to Five Points.
