Comfort Inn Colonnade

Going to be in Birmingham so at the end of April and since it is race time, had difficulty finding reasonable accommodations. Is this place half decent and in a safe area? Indicates it is about 15 minutes from the airport - any shuttle service, or roughly any idea on taxi prices. Need to rent a vehicle but since arriving late at night not sure I want to pay for that first day. Any help, suggestions for dining, etc. would be appreciated.

Tx...Canadian traveller heading your way for first time!

The Colonnade is a very safe area. I'm sorry I'm not able to answer your other questions!

This hotel is in a good location. I can't make any personal recommendations about this hotel since I've never stayed there but it did receive some good reviews here at TA as recent as February 2008. I don't think this hotel offers a shuttle to and from the airport but I'd call them (205) 968-3700 to be certain. If you need to take a taxi you could expect to pay $35 or more to get to this hotel. Most taxis from the airport to downtown Birmingham run around $15 and thats less than 6 miles.

The Birmingham Door-to-Door Shuttle Service (tel. 205/591-5550) provides van service between the airport and points throughout Alabama. Reservations are required so call in advance.

Being you are at the heart of Hwy 280 and I-459 you have a huge selection of restaurants to pick from. You can visit the Summit, the Galleria and numerous restaurants down Hwy 280 East.

Hope you have a good trip
