The good, the bad, and the really ugly

We were there for a Cheer competition, it said Downtown so we expected a better neighborhood but it was very rundown. We picked it because it had an indoor pool but the website had no photos so we were disappointed in the size of it once we arrived.

Nice hotel that needs better management

This hotel is actually very nice. The parking situation is different with the garage being next door so not the most convenient, but workable. The problem is that there were no rooms available for check in at check in time and there was no manager available to complain to. The individuals doing check in did their best, but there's no excuse for 60 people to have to write their name on a list in order to check in for previously paid for and reserved rooms. Unacceptable.

Modern hotel, not great location

Good hotel if you don't mind walking around, but I wouldn't recommend this city to visit. Nothing to do except eat...we wish we would have skipped this city and spent more time in Savannah. Hotel was very nice, just a bit of walk (about a mile) to "Five Points" where all the restaurants were. Heated indoor pool (not heated enough for me), but no jacuzzi.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

House of Pancakes for breakfast. Rather pricey for breakfast ($15 per person), but the food and coffee were really good. I got the Pecan Waffle; delicious.

For such a "fancy place" I would have expected airport transportation, such as a shuttle bus. The cab fare was $20!!

Hyatt Place Downtown Birmingham

The room was wonderful, very clean, nice amenities, however the service was very slow. I'm not saying that the employees didn't want to help, they did. But there simply weren't enough of them. The front desk clerks also had to take drink orders, deal with customer service issues, make pastries, etc...it simply overwhelmed them. Management needs to consider adding an additional person per shift...

Make sure you plan ahead, you will have to drive some distance to find anything interesting to do unless you are a golf fanatic or history buff...

Good value for dollar...but find your own free/lower cost parking

Be sure you have the right location...the property is relatively new - and my GPS system couldn't find it, and sent me to a sister location. That aside, the property is brilliant. Nice staff, things are working and looking new and fresh. I think (assume) I got upgraded simply because I got lost and had to call a few times, to get proper directions, to the correct property. Only complaints is that the don't tell you that parking is an additional cost - ignore that and get free parking weekends on the street (I found a space across the street - during St. Patty's Day weekend) The breakfast is nothing to write home about. Would def come back again.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Don't believe the hype about using the parking garage across the street for parking with the hotel. You can probably find street parking for a better value (meter)...or for free.
