It was exactly what I needed. Clean, comfortable, great gym, friendly & helpful staff. Love the pantry where you can grab wine or beer. I needed to get a lot of work done on my laptop and sat at a table in the lobby. It was bright and quiet. I ended up eating dinner here, and it was great. I don't make a habit of eating at chain hotels and much prefer finding downtown, local spots, but I had an early flight and just didn't have time. I had a nice glass of pinot grigio with my entree and wasn't disappointed!
The only drawback to staying here was that the shuttle doesn't start til 6:00 a.m. I had a 5:30 a.m. flight, and the staff offered to call me a taxi, but it was $40, and my Budget rental car was only $53 (w/ all taxes), and the car return is in the parking lot across from the terminal, so I decided to just keep the car. Would have been great if I could have returned it the night before and saved the money. A minor drawback, but definitely a drawback.
I will warn other travelers...if you have a flight before 6:00 am, don't count on the BHM being slow. The Delta counter was absolutely packed when I arrived at 4:15! And Delta only has kiosks accessible through standing in line. I had checked in for my flight the night before in my room, but I didn't go down to the Business Center and print my boarding pass. I wish I had, because i could have avoided the 20-minute line I had to stand in to print my pass at a kiosk! Security took awhile too. If you have a really early flight, give yourself some extra time.
