I spent one night at the HS Hoover on a quick trip to Alabama. Very happy indeed with the experience. I was upgraded to a 1-bedroom suite, which felt plenty spacious enough. The bed was the highlight - it was sooo cosy, and I really regretted having to get up at 5am for my onward journey. The little kitchen has most of what you'd need for making up food. The living area is not huge, but plenty adequate for a couple of people, and the bathroom was surprisingly nice. The elevators seemed really slow, so I ended up just taking the stairs every time instead. The location is in a business park, so nothing much is walkable, but it's a short drive to many places to eat, and very convenient indeed to I-65.

We wish you could have stayed longer too! Thank you for your great review! You’re right, while we are located in a quiet area, we are just minutes from some of Hoover’s best shopping and restaurants, and I-65 is very close as well. Make plans to come and see us again!

Recently booked this hotel for a large group for an event we had nearby. Emily from sales, was great to work with and everything flowed smoothly! The rooms are great and newer suites - although the light in the bedroom seem to come on mysteriously during the night a couple of times. Overall a great experience and a good location - we would certainly return.

This hotel is in an excellent location, the rooms were spacious and very clean. The hotel staff was friendly and very accommodating. We were checked in to the hotel by Amber, who has an awesome personality, is very professional, and knowledegable about the area. The amenities were great and the well equipped kitchen and full-sized refrigerator was wonderful. This is a great place ot stay for a week-end get away or business trips. We will definitely use this hotel again!

I booked 2 rooms with free Hilton Honors Reward points for a family stay. The hotel is wonderful! Clean, modern, huge rooms. Comfortable beds and flat screen TVs in bedroom and in living room suite. We didn't cook but there were enough items and a large refrigerator plus dishwasher that would make eating in possible. The breakfast was the best - fresh fruits, waffles with fresh strawberries and whipped cream, huge assortment of cereals, delicious eggs with cheese, best grits ever, sausages, and croissants. Actual plates, mugs and not all the styrofoam dishes. The staff was extremely friendly and courteous. There is a FREE evening meal offered Monday-Thursday with draft beer and wine. We went out for dinner but if it was anything like breakfast, it was fresh and fabulous. At breakfast I saw the staff chopping lettuces (beautiful and green and fresh) for the salad for the evening dinner - no bagged salad for dinner! The surrounding area was beautiful and park-like and convenient to the interstate into downtown and shopping malls and attractions. Why stay anywhere else?

Room Tip: The rooms with 2 queen beds are huge. There is no noise so being near the elevator is not an issue.

This hotel is very clean, has a great location, super AWESOME staff, great ammenities & so much more. Very family friendly. Great for business travelers. Free Breakfast, internet, parking and dinner/drinks are free Monday - Thursday. Very helpful staff. Several times I have stayed there and the local police dept were having breakfast there. They always know where to get good food. Can't say enough great things about the staff. Amber at the front desk & Michael in the breakfast area have been fantastic. Very clean rooms. Bedding is nice & comfortable. I don't want to say too many good things as I'm letting out my secret place to stay and will have a hard time getting my next reservation:)

Room Tip: Like a room in the back side so it's close to parking.

This hotel is an excellent place to stay---it was very clean, staff was nice, and it was in a beautiful location--plan to stay again in a few weeks. The full-size refrigerator, microwave, and kitchen table is wonderful--makes it feel like an apartment instead of a hotel room.

We came to Birmingham for a college sporting event with other families and as a group we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel staff were extremely accomodating, especially Sierra Duboise, who greeted us upon our arrival and supplied us with needed info about the town and our needs, and Amber Steele , who also provided pertinent info. The free breakfast, hot and cold selection, was attractive, tasty and probably the best I've tasted 'In the South" thus far. Breakfast staff were also pleasant, courteous, and prompt in supplying needs. The rooms were immaculate, spacious and the king size bed was comfy. Overall, a great location and would def recommend and came back. Did not try the free dinner as not available when dinner offerred.
