Frequently stay in courtyards around the country and the UAB Courtyard is a cut above the rest. Service is excellent. Particularly Gary in the Bistro. You can tell he enjoys making sure people have what they need. Makes the stay so much better!

The lobby and restaurant bar area are quite modern and nice, the rooms were what you would expect from this chain - clean, airy, and fairly contemporary. There were a few little issues (toilet was very slow, thermostat was placed at an angle on the wall and not patched), but there was nothing that prevented a good night's sleep, and... More

We stayed here a few hours the night before my father passed away. Hotel staff was great at all hours. Ate breakfast and the lady there was amazing. She went out of her way to comfort us and that will always be remembered.
