SpringHill Suites Birmingham Colonnade
Ranked #33 of 80 Hotels in Birmingham
Reviewed October 21, 2009

Customer service was horrible, could hear every noise from the hallway, overpriced for the experience. Could be a nice hotel if things were changed. Marriott should be more involved because their other chains don't operate this way.

We had a great experience at this hotel.
Our room had a king in a separate area from the sofa sleeper, desk, and kitchenette. We really liked the spacious feel this set up gave. The room was in perfect condition. We loved the innovative lighting--you will have to stay there yourself to see what I mean.
The free breakfast was good and set up well to handle the crowds. There was a soccer tournament with 143 teams and many were at this hotel, but it was still quiet.
It is very hard to find this hotel from the direction we came from and the fact it was dark made it harder. You go through a business complex and then another hotel to get to it. It sits almost at the back end of a strip mall then office complex, fields, and other hotel. You can see it from the highway, but getting to it took us 2 phone calls and about 15 minutes once we had seen it. Some signage would be a great idea. If we did not have reservations, we would have given up and stayed somewhere else.
The room was great, service great, loved the decor. Will definitely chose this hotel again.
Our team were all very pleased.

Stayed at Springhill Suites over a long weekend. Price was great, breakfast was fine and the hotel is very clean. Rooms on the highway side are noisy, so ask to stay on the other side. My husband got sick in the middle of the night and Judy at the front desk made us hot tea with honey and lemon. Did the trick. Thank you Judy! Will stay here again.

My husband I stayed for 4 nights to attend the Barber Vintage Motorcycle Museum and festival in nearby Leeds, AL. The hotel has plenty of free parking and the rooms were clean and had a mini refrigerator a bonus! Overall, it was clean and convient place to stay, however it was noisy from the expressway at night. The weekend was very busy and the hotel was sold out, however the breakfast was much to be desired. The staff has difficulties keeping the food and coffee during the breakfast hours. So, my husband and I went to a local breakfast place instead. Overall, if not spending much time at the hotel it's perfect, however don't count on breakfast. Also, the staff wasn't very knowledgable about area attractions or shopping when I inquired. I was glad we had out GPS to locate area attractions, shopping and directions.

First time staying at a SpringHill Suites. I enjoyed the room at this hotel. Room had a mini-fridge and sink with a sitting area in room. Very contemporary decor at this hotel. Something a little different than some properties.

Hotel located in a very nice area in SE Birmingham. Very close to Summit shopping area. Do need to know where this hotel is to find it. Not the easiest to spot off of I-459.

Stayed on a Saturday night. Lobby was happening when I arrived at almost 11 PM. Not sure if some type of function or family gathering was going on. Tons of activity and people out for 11.

Room was a little bigger than regular hotel room. Room was super clean. Flat panel TV with HD programming.

Free internet included with rate. Did have continental breakfast open until 10 in morning.

Will definitely look to stay at SpringHill again.

We have stayed at this hotel twice in the past six months, and will stay there again this weekend. The lobby is contemporary and pleasant. The staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast is actually served the entire time it should be. Some hotels just leave out some muffins and apples and when they're gone, they're gone. SpringHill offers muffins, fruit, bagels, toast, yogurt, oatmeal, cereal, and even waffles for breakfast. The rooms are very nice. They are all suites, so you'll have a small seating area with a pull-out bed, two small tables and a desk with a nice desk chair. This area is separated by a half-wall from the bed area. The beds and pillows are comfortable, and the bathrooms are clean and roomy. The bed area has lamps and an overhead light with a dimmer that can be reached from the bed. The high-speed wireless internet works well and is easy to connect to, and each room has a large flat-screen TV that can swivel to face either the bed area or the living area. Rooms also have mini-fridges, microwaves, and a "kitchen" sink area. There is a nice pool in the back of the hotel, and the fitness room is great! There are elliptical machines, treadmills, weights, even a resistance machine where you can do all kinds of exercises. Also, each treadmill and elliptical machine has its own flat-screen TV mounted on it, so you can watch whatever you like while you're working out. The prices are great, too; we have paid about $100 a night each time we've stayed here. There is only one downside to this hotel: Highway 280. If you plan to stay here and leave or come back during rush hour,Hwy 280 (which you must take) can be a beast. Also, previous reviewers have complained of the noise from the highway. Personally, I've never noticed it at the hotel, but if you're a very light sleeper or very sensitive to noise, it might bother you. All in all, a great hotel!

Absolutely beautiful hotel. Great location. Perfect place for a stop-over. Shopping close by. Staff went above and beyond to be polite, and helpful.
