It was a dirty room.

The staff was polite and efficient, the bar service was excellent, the location is good. The only problem was the room. The room was dirty. There Was a condom wrapper on the floor and an earring on the floor as well as other debris. Also the room reeked of bleach that gave the three of us a headache. The shower was not good. No water pressure. Also the a/c was not impressive in Alabama in August. It is time to overhaul this hotel in my opinion. It was way too expensive for what we got.

One night only

I picked the DoubleTree because a friend of mine told me it was closest to the Birmingham social scene. 5 points is just a short walk away which is nice but the hotel can best be described as average. Also, if you put the address into your GPS, it takes you to the ghetto, not the hotel.

DoubleTree 7/16

I stayed overnight as I was moving out of my nearby apartment. It was a pleasant stay, but not particularly remarkable. I did enjoy the warm cookies at check-in.

Very Enjoyable!

Very comfortable room with several amenities. Very clean rooms as well, and friendly staff. I had an important event the next day, and this place allowed me to get the rest I needed. The only downside was that it was hard to find an easy place to eat food nearby (however, there is a Subway right across the street). I would stay here again myself the next time I am in town.

very clean

Was there for class at UAB, had to pay for internet, and $10 a DAY for parking. Also no fridge or microwave. Location to UAB is within walking distance,and you get a free cookie.

Be ready to walk for your food, because its very hard to find parking and if you do find a parking spot you will have to pay to park.
