Horrible Experience

Our family visited Birmingham for July 4th weekend and I was VERY disappointed in the quality of this Embassy suites. Rooms were dingy, carpet floors with multiple stains, the lists goes on! Bc it was the 4th weekend, the hotel was booked with family reunions, a full house. That Saturday morning, the breakfast buffet/area was horrible. The hotel did not staff the kitchen staff appropriately!! The ran out food AND by 9 am (breakfast was from 7-10:30am) they were serving food off of paper plates!

excellent location for business

Clean & comfortable. Large enough for meetings as well as top notch dining at Ruth Chris Steakhouse on site. We will choose the hotel for our future visits.

Not Happy

When I first arrived, the gentleman at the front desk did not say welcome, he just asked for my last name. He gave me a room key that did not work so I went back to the front desk, he says, "try it again" after he typed something in to the computer. I went back to the same room, it worked, however...... someone was still staying in that room! I got out quickly and went back to front desk. They gave me another room. They said they were upgrading me, but I didn't really need a conference table in my room. It is just scary to know that a hotel can override a key to just anyone and let a stranger into you room.

Not a family atmosphere

We had fun until New Years Eve when our next door neighbor decided to have a loud, violent party until 4:00 in the morning! We have young children and the language and foul behavior by these intoxicated people was disgusting to say the least. I reported it to the front desk several times but they were "too busy" to check into the matter. My wife and I only got 2 hours of sleep before we had to load the car to drive home. Bad experience!

OK just OK

Have stayed in this hotel in the past few years. Previously excellent, but note a decline in the quality and value. The place seems poorly staffed and the facilities do not seem as clean as they once did. Noted lobby furniture fabric soiled and worn. This trip observed mold in the suite and bathroom. Also observed the gentleman who was making omletts, leave the line during a lull and bus tables. All said, the staff is courteous, there just does not seem to be enough of them to keep the place up to the Hilton name. OK hotel for now, but the decline I have observed over the years from my 5 star rating makes me not want to go back next year. I do not want to experience further decline. OK for mundane travel needs but look elsewhere for that special get away that really matters.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

The Ruth Cris Restaurant inside the hotel is excellent,however the prices make it better for a special meal rather than a daily experience during the hotel stay. Excellent, reasonably priced, one of a kind eateries available a short driving distance away Whole Foods and the adjacent shopping center.

This place was amazing!!!! Not only was it beautiful but thestaff was great. They greeted us wih a welcoming smile, gave us our key to our room. The room was very clean, and then the front desk alle to ensure we had every thing. we then decided to walk around the beautiful lobby and indoor pool when we ran into the person from thefront desk who greeted us this time by name. I didnt really enjoy the on site resturrat ( over priced and not that great) but every thing else was beyond perfect. te beds were even great ( finding a comfortable bed in a hotel is rare) I would highly recommend this hotel!!!!! A++++++

Work weekend

Great room. Very pleased with size of the room and amenities. Front desk and shuttle driver extremely helpful. Just bothered by the 'black' (grime?) in the grout in the shower tile. Not excessive but enough to make me think it was not 'clean'.
