Opted for a larger room with microwave & fridge. Can NOT say enough about this great room! VERY clean & fresh, smoke-free, excellent accommodations & decor. Will definitely stay again for school/business related events!

Loved my stay, loved the staff, everything was nice. The place was quaint with antique style furniture. The staff was friendly and informative. The problem is they have an airport shuttle, not affiliated, that comes but it doesn't start until like 7. Uber came un 5 minutes at 4am though.

We were in Birmingham primarily, to eat at Frank Stitts restaurants and this hotel is close by and within walking distance of Bodaga Favorita which was fabulous! The hotel is comfortable and accommodating and one feels like Alice in Wonderland amid the "crazy" unique, but comfortable, colorful furniture! A fun place to stay in the heart of a busy part...

There are no words to how great this hotel is for a girls weekend. We had two suites across the hall from each other. Rooms were spacious and the beds are very comfortable.

I thought I recognized this building. Turns out it was the old Medical Arts Building of my childhood. In 1988 it became the Pickwick Hotel and in 2007 the Hotel Highland at Five Points. Talking to the staff, there has been no real update since the Pickwick days, but a major refurbishment is in the offing. Honestly, the property needs... More

Awesome Local with modern artistic flare. Incredible walking district. No need to go far, though. Killer steakhouse to one side and incredible beer bar to the other. Friendly, courteous staff, great location, FANTASTIC hotel. Reasonable rates - especially compared to surrounding hotels.

We planned a family reunion in Birmingham and stayed at this hotel. The location was perfect for events planned, as well as for getting a feel of downtown Birmingham. Arrival and assistance with luggage and parking were handled smoothly. The room was spacious and clean. The breakfast ample and offerings broad enough for our tastes.
