The staff was amazing and property was very well maintained. Everything was in walking distance. Breakfast was great, but the servicing of the room could have been better. Other than that the stay was amazing. Thank you!

The hotel was extremely busy, which wasn’t a big deal, but had to park across a four lane street because the lot was full.

Great place to stay. The staff was extremely kind and friendly. The hotel is very clean and beautifully decorated. The breakfast was top notch from scrambled eggs and sausage, Belgium waffle maker, hot oatmeal, various dry cereals, bagels, muffins with plenty of different types of toppings, coffee, milk, orange juice and apple juice. The rooms were very clean. The staff was very accommodating, friendly and kind. Would definitely stay there every time we go to Birmingham.

Nice Hotel, but

I'm not sure of the Travelocity / Hotel policy when it come to guarantee of reservation. First, I made my 2 night reservation through Travelocity over a week in advance. Even though I was told that it was a non-refundable reservation I went through with the reservation. Upon arrival at the Downtown Residence Inn I was told that my room was not available for the first of our 2 night stay because the person in the room had extended his stay by a night. The hotel sent us to another Residence Inn south of Birmingham. After that first night we had to repack and checkout from one hotel and check in to our originally planned hotel. The downtown hotel was much nicer than the one on the outskirts.

Nice Hotel, Good Location

Pros: the friendly staff, the location to Downtown and within walking distance to a couple of restaurants.
Cons: The Breakfast, it was alright but needs improving. The layout for one thing is wrong. everything is bunched together. Food was lacking for the price
Location: It's 5 minutes from the Childrens theater, the legacy arena and several historical sites
The hotel was clean, staff was friendly. The parking should be free, but we had no problems finding parking. I would stay there again when in Birmingham. Very Pleased
