I just completed a two-night stay in snowy Huntsville, Alabama at the Marriott Springhill Suites downtown, and overall, it was pretty nice. The hotel appears to be a newly constructed building on the edge of downtown. It's located in a strange, open area of downtown, but it seemed safe, and was conveniently located for getting around town and to and from the airport.
The hotel has some nice amenities, including a fitness center, outdoor pool (which looked like a skating rink during my visit!), outdoor patio with fire pit, small bar area, snack / gift shop, ample parking, and a pretty decent breakfast.
The "suites" are well designed and plenty large, with a living room area including a comfortable sofa and kitchenette with mini-fridge and micro, and the sleeping area with desk, retractable glass half-wall and a rotating flat-screen TV in-between. The bathroom is conveniently split into two, with lavatory / sink and a separate stand-up shower and counter sink, each with sliding pocket doors.
Furnishings and design are modern and well done, with plenty of light. The HVAC comes from an in-wall, below-the-window unit, but is relatively quiet and is controlled by an electronic thermostat on the wall.
Everything is still in very good shape, and overall, the room was clean when I arrived (although a couple small pieces of trash hadn't been emptied from one of the trash cans). Two other small complaints here though - the bed was initially comfortable, but ended up being quite soft for my liking (I recognize this is completely a personal preference thing); and the towels were very small and quite thin - really cheap feeling for an otherwise nice room.
The staff were all very friendly, professional and helpful, and the check-in / - out process was smooth and quick.
So, overall, I would recommend this downtown Huntsville hotel - just hope they level-up a couple of the in-room amenities to match the rest of the quality of the hotel.
