A couple things turned me off, but there were a lot of Pros. Pro: location (close to downtown but in a nice area near a very nice shopping/food area), pool (long enough for laps when empty), staff (very friendly). Cons: poor layout re: elevators (one for whole circular hotel), cleanliness (room had a grossly stained sheet used on one bed...

My colleague and I stayed at the Courtyard for 4 nights while attending an Institute at Samford University. This is the first time we have stayed at this hotel. I must say I was very pleased at the amazing experience we had. The room was super clean and very quiet. The location is very convenient. The Brookwood Mall is across...

I've stayed in many Courtyards. This one is identical to most in terms of the rooms and property, and it provided predictable quality at a reasonable cost. What is notable about this property are the staff. Everyone was incredibly, and sincerely, friendly and personally invested in making sure I had a good experience.

When we first checked in we met CJ at the front desk. He was so friendly and helpful in every way even offering dinner suggestions when we ask. He represents the hotel very very well which you should recognize him for. Having highlighted CJ, over the course of our stay all staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room felt...

Great location for Samford University, Homewood, Mountain Brook or Vestavia Hills. Great restaurants are located nearby as well as stores & shopping (skip the bistro as you have great options). I actually enjoyed check in with Courtney and Mechelle. They were smiling and happy. I wanted to like the place and I do. However, the room was a bit noisy....

Ease at check in and good spot for meetings. Restaurants and shopping near by. Cafe staff seemed a bit brusque at first as they were busy. Rooms clean and bedding fresh. Bathrooms spotless. Well kept hotel.

Was in Birmingham on business. Great location with eateries nearby. Bistro is not complementary, but convenient with nice selection. Try the scones! The building is large, with a courtyard/pool in the center. My room was clean and updated. Public areas all seemed well kept as well. If I was visiting in the area, I would use this hotel again.

Upon arrival I went front to have my profile place on my room, Courtney begins to tell me that I would not receive points for my stay, this I know I've been Marriott rewards member for 14 years.

This hotel is in a great location to visit Samford University. The room was clean and staff were friendly. There is free parking. While there isn't a free breakfast there is free coffee in the room.

Honestly didn't check before making reservations. Went down for breakfast first morning to discover nothing complimentary. There is a order bar that serves breakfast items, but good lord at the prices. $4.50 for cereal. Deal breaker for us. Housekeeping does a great job and very courteous. Befs are very comfortable. Bathroom more spacious than normal.
