My first impression of this hotel were good. The entryway and main public areas are wonderfully done. Fireplace, couches, trellises and staircases. The staff was courteous and helpful There's a small store where you can grab whatever snack/drink or other items you need and just tell the desk person your room number. The restaurant is decent and usually offers a southern breakfast buffet for $10. The hotel is walking distance to a number of bars and is two blocks from the Bankhead tunnel. Somewhat interesting is getting a room on a higher floor facing the shipyard and Gulf of Mexico. Now the not-so-great: Room was a bit dim and drab, only illumination was a table lamp and a light over the entryway. Bathroom door swings open barely an inch away from the toliet so it's rather cramped in there. The toliet takes 3-4 flushes to properly dispose of contents. There is a desk and chair in the room, but no electrical outlets anywhere nearby so plugging in your laptop there is out. The wifi is annoying because it asks you every five minutes to relog in with the hotel's password(I was there nearly a week so this was not a one-off technical problem). My other beef is that the lounge on the 17th floor has a $10 minimum for credit cards(the view from up there is pretty good though). Bonus item: novelty of staying in a round/circular hotel!
