“Birmingham Doubletree”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

I stayed one night in a top floor king. Great view of the city. Clean room, comfy bed and friendly staff. Not liking this review app though it is forcing me to give a 200 character minimum.......not happy with that.

Hello, my name is Michelle Edwards, guest service manager at the Doubletree hotel in Birmingham, Al. I hope you come back and visit us and I will try to get you a room on the top floor again. Besides the view, there are other great attributes the hotel as to offer. Maybe your next visit could be to our newly renovated fitness center. And this easter which is only a week and half away our pool will be opened and we have revitalized the patio area. So I hope you come back and visit with us very soon. Thank you

No free Wifi??????? Move up to the 21st century.The heat did not work but they took care of it promptly. The bar tender was a life saver. He told us about a free ride supplied by the hotel to the restaurant and pick us up.Also made great Cosmos.

Hello, my name is Michelle Edwards, guest service manager at the Doubletree hotel in Birmingham, Al. It is great to hear a guest say they enjoyed their stay and was treated exceptionally by our associates. We do have free wireless in the lobby area, restaurant, lobby bar as well as our 24 hour business center. I hope you come back and visit and perhaps visit some more restaurants, there are over a dozen in the 5 points district area that's only 2 blocks from the hotel. And I'm sure we can arrange our shuttle driver to assist you again with transportation. Thank you

The staff was amazing!! I made the trip to birmingham to visit my dad who I haven't seen in over 20 years, and I chose this hotel because its near his home. From the moment I checked in I was greeted by name and given all the gold member perks. The front desk staff in particular are some of the friendliest I've ever met in all of my travels. After meeting my dad I came back to tell them about it, next thing I know we spent almost an hour talking (it was 1130 so it was pretty slow). Room was decent, all of my request were fulfilled and I honestly can say this has been one of th best hotel expirences I've had. I will definitely stay here again.

This site is an excellent location and within walking distance to UAB, Medical Center, and Five Points. The front desk staff and bartender are extremely friendly, although drink prices are high ($5.65 for a beer). Lighting in the rooms and bathrooms (low output) are TERRIBLE as the hotel is environmentally friendly. The fitness room is excellent with multiple treadmills, weight machines, and free weights.

This is my second stay at this hotel and once again pleased. I saw other's comments about noise. There's no more noise here than at any other hotel in a big city. There will always be some just because its all cement and sound cascades upward, give the hotel a break there. My room was huge and clean. The ac drowned out any outside noise the thick curtains didn't, and I'm a light sleeper. Although the 808 Bistro was closed the full menu was available from the lobby bar. I had an amazingly tender filet and margarita.

We always enjoy our stay at the Doubletree Birmingham. The rooms are clean, staff is great, and of course the location is ideal.

I do, however, had a few concerns about hotel amenities. This is one the few hotels I have stayed at that charge a surcharge for using their internet. Most hotels have complimentary wifi, Hilton brand included. I think it is ridiculous to have such a surcharge. No refrigerator or microwave in the rooms! Again, most hotels have one or both in their rooms. I believe their competitor across the street offer these complimentary amenities. For these reasons, I wished we booked elsewhere in Birmingham for our trip. We come back every year at this time, and i believe I will look into other hotels nearby that offer more for the same rate.

Hello, my name is Michelle Edwards, guest service manager with the Doubletree hotel in Birmingham, Al. I am glad to know that you enjoyed your stay but if you will provide us with another opportunity to impress you further it would definitely be appreciated it. We have complimentary refrigerators available upon request. When you come back to visit just ask for me and I can help ensure that this amenity is available for you. We do have a central location for the microwave for our guests to use in the hotel. Also, we have rates that includes breakfast and our breakfast is hot and fresh with over a dozen items to choose from. So we do have some great amenities you didnt have an opportunity to experience. But if you come back and visit and ask for Michelle I can help ensure you experience all that we have to offer. Thank you and I hope to speak with you soon.
