What a pleasure to walk into this room and see a fireplace! We had a one bedroom king and it was wonderful for our family. Had plenty of room to spread out. Room was clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights when we attended a wedding in Birmingham. Upon arrival the front desk employees were polite and courteous. We went to our room, they are all suites, and found the suite to be extremely clean and well appointed. There were two TVs, one in the living area and one on the bedroom. The kitchenette was complete with a two burner stove(electric), a microwave, dishwasher, and apartment sized refrigerator. It also included dishes, silverware, glassware, cookware and various other implements such as a corkscrew. There is a desk in the living area with adequate lighting to work on anything you might need to do. The location is awesome with all the places we needed to be for the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, and the wedding easy to locate and just a short drive away. The breakfast buffet was quite impressive. They had scrambled eggs, breakfast meat ( either sausage or bacon), grits, oatmeal, pancakes, waffles with a variety of toppings, bagels, English muffins, cereals, a great selection of fresh fruits, juices, bottled water, and coffee. The dudes working in the kitchen were extremely helpful, polite, and courteous. They acted like they really liked the jobs they were engaged in. Next time I'm in Birmingham I will definitely be staying at the Residence Inn on 821 20th Street South.

We have stayed at several different hotels in Birmingham, and none have been worth staying in a second time. This time was different. The front desk staff was friendly and efficient. We were checked in quickly and given a card so we could park in the parking lot. I have seen a couple questions about the parking situation, and there is a lot adjacent to the hotel. We were not charged for this, but when I got my bill at the end, it showed a $10 parking fee with $10 waived. So I'm not sure if parking is normally charged.

The room was quite nice and appeared recently renovated. Everything was clean and worked correctly. And the #1 thing I look for is how clean the room is. The small kitchen area had tea bags, coffee packets and a bag of microwave popcorn.

The bed was comfortable, but the bottom sheet did have some pilling. The pillows were very soft, and they all felt the same. So if you want a firm pillow, we didn't have that option. There was plenty of hot water in the shower, and the towels were good.

The breakfast buffet was one of the better ones we've had. There was plenty of bacon, biscuits, scrambled eggs, tortillas, waffles, yogurt, cereal, milk, small bottles of water, coffee, juice . . . so a nice variety of options. The woman working the buffet was very sweet and friendly.

We travel to Birmingham several times a year, since one of our children attends college there, and it is nice to finally find a nice hotel with a reasonable price. We definitely hope to be able to stay here during our next trip to Birmingham.

Room Tip: Our room faced the parking lot, so the view was nothing special, but it wasn't loud.
