I arrived at the hotel late in the evening and was able to find the last parking spot in their parking garage. I felt safe inside the garage cause it was well lit and close to the doors of the hotel.
Check in was easy, since my company took care of my reservations. The receptionist helped me out quickly and I was on my way to the 4th floor room.
The atmosphere is very modern. The doors to all the rooms are 8' tall. No idea why. It's not like they have tall luggage carts here. When I first walked into the room I noticed that the door closer arm rubs the ceiling, not a big deal. The room was very clean, everything was in its rightful place. The housekeeping staff did a very nice job getting the room ready for my stay.
Two queen size beds, desk, bench to sit on and a loud A/C was in the main room. Walk into the washroom area, 1 sink and a long counter. Turn around and you have a wardrobe closet that has curtain to conceal your clothes. The shower and toilet are in the same room this room is separated by a sliding door/full length mirror. The door has a chuck missing out of it due to the repeating collusion it has with the sink countertop. Architects what are they thinking ? Then shower was very nice; nice glass front, tile work and very good water pressure coming from the shower head. I was entertained by a, I'll say a 42" flat screen tv. I couldn't find a TV guide telling me what stations was on what channel, so I surfaced. A lot of the stations are analog, it just so happens any show I wanted to watch was on a analog station. I guess I miss my Dish Network. Spoiled I am.
There was no ice on my floor. I had to go see the receptionist in the lobby and she said ice is on floors 3 & 5. So I was off in search for ice.
I found the business office in case I needed to use a desk top computer/printer. Glad I didn't, there would not have been any privacy. It is in the hallway leading to the workout room and pool. But there is an ATM close by to use.
In the lobby, there was a bar, for an evening drink. If you feel like shooting a game of pool you can do that to. There is a place for breakfast for you. Glad there is an ATM close by cause you have to purchase you food.
All in all, I would stay here again. Staff was friendly, housekeeping did a fine job fixing up my room on the second night and the Director of Sales wrote me a nice note and gave me a drink voucher for 1 drink at the bar. In saying that... it is beer thirty. I would recommend this hotel.

Very clean hotel in a neat area of Birmingham. We came here for a business meeting and the hotel is within walking distance of great restaurants and shopping. The room was a little noisy on Saturday morning due to some sort of race going on in the front of the hotel, which of course, they could not control.

Most uncomfortable beds i have ever laid on. Poor TV location. Heater unit smelled awful every time we turned on. Requested extra sheets to make up for the cold and the front desk said we would have to come get them from the front. Got charged a smoking fee.

I'm sure the general manager, Elaine Powell never works or just refuses to return messages. left multiple messages and also filed a dispute with the credit card company. The credit card company also saying that they are unable to reach the location for follow up.

i have cancelled my SPG account just due to this stay. NEVER AGAIN.

The room was nice. No frills for sure. The bed was extremely hard. I’m sure there is someone who would like that but I didn’t sleep. The water pressure was low. The toilet didn’t flush everything down. I spoke with some other people staying there and they had the same issues. The staff was friendly and very helpful. No complaints with the service. The room was clean. A very thin comforter was on the bed. No blanket. The sheet was almost see through. I probably wouldn’t stay here again. We used SPG points. It definitely wasn’t worth 10,000 points.
