“Residence Inn~Great~ Newer Place”
Reviewed October 21, 2009

Traveling to TX . A friend wanted to visit while I was traveling thru the B'ham area.... and I selected Res. Inn. because of the extra beds and breakfast. You could tell it was rather new. Had a great check in with Ben. Did not use the kitchen area but it was very up up date. Enjoyed the -safe-neighborhood and did some shopping.
I would stay here again-definitely.
Getting into the hotel's parking is an interesting maneuver.

The hotel is just a year old. Good suburban location with a Wal-Mart and several restaurants across the road (it's a busy road with no crosswalk so you are more likely to drive than walk). Typical suburban shopping nearby includes a mall, grocery stores, etc. within a mile drive. We stayed on a Saturday night and the hotel was full with several fans who had watched the Alabama football game in nearby Tuscaloosa - we talked with some who noted the convenient location of the hotel off of I-459 and close to I-65. Hotel staff were very professional at check-in and check-out. The rooms are well designed and decorated (artwork that was tasteful and match the decor). The kitchen has a full-size fridge, microwave, two burner stove, plates, silverware and even a sink disposal. There are ample light fixtures and lamps throughout the unit. TV was a 32" LG, that neatly swiveled so that you could watch it from the desk, the couch or in bed. Some of the local channels and ESPN were in HD. Both wired and wireless Internet were available. I didn't try the wired connection, but didn't have any problems connecting to the wireless on my iPhone. The buffet breakfast included scrambled eggs, sausage, french toast and a waffle station. The breakfast area did get crowded, but that was not unexpected knowing the hotel was full. The local Sunday newspaper was available free of charge. No negatives to point out. I would recommend this property for both short and longer stays.

It's 2009 you'd think they'd have internet that was usable. Seriously, it's like dialup speeds when it actually works. If you're on business and absolutely need internet, go somewhere else.

I do a lot of traveling and stay in a lot of hotels and I have to say that this hotel is the best one I have ever stayed in. Every associate I encountered was professional, knowledgeable and just welcoming. The hotel was extremely clean and very well maintained. I could not have asked for a better birthday. My girlfriends and I had a blast! Highly Recommended!!!

Excellent place, excellent location. Brand new, bright and extra clean. The location is safe and plenty of places for eating and shopping (Galleria Mall is just a few minutes away).

This hotel is absolutely beautiful. It is brand new. The staff was wonderful, very caring and helpful. Breakfast was great (and free!). It is right down the road from the Galleria Mall and Patton Creek shopping center and really easy to get to from 459 and 65. I would rate this as the best hotel by far in Birmingham and Hoover!
