Very nice hotel. Large spacious rooms. Room was clean. There was even a bottle of water/snack inside for free. Wireless internet worked well. There is a small area for drinks outside of the lobby with a TV to watch a local sports event. Front desk help were very nice. Large pool and exercise center available. There are also plenty of restaurants to choose from which are within walking distance.

I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful hospitality that was extended to me from the moment the front desk associate picked up the phone and answered to take my reservation and continuing through 3 days/nights of stay to this point. (not yet checked out.) The room is surprisingly large and the decor, cleanliness and preparation (pillow arrangement and towel etc) are beautiful and inviting. The halls and stairways are large and well lighted clean and bright. The decor and furniture in the lobby and the breakfast room are magnificent and beautifully arranged. The breakfast itself, the variety, quality and presentation were all superb. The breakfast room was perfectly maintained so that tables were clean and ready even during busy times. The staff have all been very friendly and helpful, making me feel both welcome and far more important than I am. Thank you for turning a business trip away from home and family a really enjoyable time which I look forward to repeating when I return to Birmingham. Next time I will bring my wife and you can dote on her too! Thank you again for great management. As a manager myself, previously a business owner of 28 years and a person who has traveled quite a bit for both business and leisure, I know that this, unfortately, is not the norm and it definitely does not happen by accident. It happens only through the efforts of a concientious, fair and respectful management team who is diligent to consistently set the example of excellence in "pride in workmanship" and "service" for their team and develops and leads a dedicated staff of employees in a company that values, encourages and rewards the same. Kudos for setting and maintaining the standard that makes us all winners!
Thank you,
Christian Krehl

The regular coffee in room is not my favorite but the coffee at the breakfast is great. The staff at the managers reception are very friendly and cheerful. The check in staff are always in good humor and willing to help.

We four golfers have used this hotel as base camp for our fall trip for many years. We have always found it clean, comfortable, friendly and a bargain. The rooms are quite large compared to some suites hotels. The staff has always been very professional, with
quick check-in and check-out. The hotel also has a great breakfast included and during the week a happy hour where they really treat you like company. The hotel also is in a nice location with a couple of good restaurants within walking distance.
