Courtyard Birmingham Hoover
Ranked #6 of 9 Hotels in Hoover
Reviewed December 28, 2007

The Courtyard in Hoover is located next to The Galleria Shopping Mall and Patton Creek Shopping Area. Being close to these shopping meccas, I-65 and I-459 makes for a lot of restaurants and other shopping venues in the area. Unfortunately, it also makes for a lot of traffic.

The lobby and rooms are well-appointed and comfortable. The linens and mattresses are of good quality. Large bathrooms and great showers were also positives.

Our only negatives were with a rather apathetic staff, lukewarm breakfast buffet and some worn carpet in the 1st floor hallway.

Standard Courtyard. Rooms seem to be high traffic and well used. The room was clean. Staff was good- but breakfast staff was slow and the price of 9.95 for Birmingham was a little high. Location is close to everything including the highway and a wide variety of food and the Galleria mall.

Gripes- you can hear traffic easily, no setting that permits the fan on the AC unit to run continuously- constantly on and off again. Very thin walls! Building was not full, but staff had all rooms sold adjacent to each other rather than space them out for quiet sake. Bed OK.

The location is good for restaurants and shopping but the front desk staff is rude. Breakfast was decent but a little pricey, the hospitality staff in the restaurant were very nice. The front desk staff were not helpful. Had problems getting towels brought to the pool, waited over an hour for a towel to be brought but it never arrived. Went to the front desk and was told we shouldn't be standing there wet, that we were getting their floor wet. Oh well. Expected better service from a Courtyard.

Easy to get to off I-65 and Montgomery Hwy. Right next door to Jim N Nick's BBQ - excellent. Always stay here when I go to Montgomery via Birmingham. Rooms are average Courtyard - not above average. Beds are ok but the comforter is not big anf fluffy. Onsite spa and workout room is nice. Food istandard Courtyard. Coffee is a Maxwell House machine and is pretty good. Rate was around $159 or so. Rooms by the elevator are not sound-=proof so be advised.

This well-located Courtyard is what you would expect from a Courtyard. It was clean, well furnished, and stamped out of the same mold as half the Courtyards in the chain. The staff was actually very helpful in giving recommendations and meeting a small room request.

But...

Make sure you are not on the first floor of this hotel. The "first floor" is actually a level below the lobby. Yep. It's a basement. Avoid it if you can!

I stayed at this hotel the end of May 2005. It was under a much needed renovation. I got a room that was renovated and it was just fine. This hotel uses fitted sheets. That is RARE these days. But, for some reason, they don't vacuum the floor every day. I don't understand why. My floor was a mess. Also, I was on the NON-smoking floor but the rude person next to me was smoking in his NON-Smoking room. I could smell it through the wall. When will these hotels get smart and start charging the smokers extra for smoking in a non-smoking room? The service in the restaurant was HORRIBLE! Lazy workers and they don't care if you think they are lazy. DON'T eat there.
