I absolutely love this hotel. It is definitely in the boutique hotel catagory. I previously had stayed when the hotel was the Pickwick. However, they have done a multi-million dollar renovation and it shows. The furnishings are what I would call classic modern. They are very warm and welcoming. I stayed both in August and September of this year. Both times the staff was very helpful. The rooms were immaculate. I lived for several years in this part of Birmingham, so I loved being able to walk around Southside during the day. The nights on the weekend can be a bit noisy and the strip of the 5 points area that faces the hotel front is populated with tattoo parlors and is not the most attractive part of 5 points. If you can get past that, I think you will love your stay. You can park your own car and not pay the $18/day valet fee. I did and was able to park for $4 total for the entire weekend. The parking deck is behind the hotel. You have to make the block and come up to the right of the hotel. Before the corner, you will see the sign. It can be tricky to find, but well worth looking for. I will say that coming in the back from the parking deck might discourage you. The old Pickwick Plaza is about defunct. But once inside the hotel, you'll see what so many love!
