Dining Room

I used this hotel because of its closeness to UAB hospital. Upon checking in I asked if they had a dining room. I was told that the dining area was open from 5-10 p.m. However, there wasn't a dining area, just a bar. Distinction need to be made between dining and bar. If you say dining, then I expect some kind of food. The room was clean but it smelled like bleach. Even the bed covers had a scent of bleach.

Great stay!

This hotel was conveniently located to many area attractions. My family came to Birmingham for the Marshall/UAB football game. Legion Field was only a two miles from the hotel. We also took in the 16th Street Babtist Church which was only minutes away. But the best feature was the size of the rooms. They were over 200 sq/ft with a very large bathroom. I would definitely recommend it and if I return to Birmingham I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Perfect location.

Staff seemed disconnected and not really on top of things. Desk was dusty and bathroom was not cleaned well at all.

en route to Atlanta

This hotel was so nice and comfortable. We wanted a hotel that was close to the Interstate to Atlanta and this one was perfect.

Business trip

Check in and out at front desk was quick and easy; had to pay for parking fee each and every time I came and returned. No continential breakfast-should have it for the price of motel stay. You pay for location of hotel. Hotel is great if you need to go to UAB Medical-connected to hotel along with parking.

Southern Hospitality, Marriott Style!

I was there for the National Junior Olympic Cross-Country Championships and arrived via Amtrak, a short walk to the Courtyard. The staff were great, assisting me in getting transportation to the airport for my rental, and in general, providing me with a ton of information about the area as it was my first visit to Birmingham. The availability of a computer for me to file race stories to my area newspapers in New England were a plus. The hotel is in a great spot where there are a number of eateries within walking distance. Spacious rooms, huge TV's, and, again, a staff who were sincere and genuine!
