Birmingham was my second stop on a 6 day roadtrip through the South. I am loyal to Marriott properties as I earn rewards through my credit card. I could not have chosen a better place to stay in Birmingham, as this hotel is so new and so very pretty.
The lobby area is decorated in a very colorful, modern style that I absolutely love. The rooms are decorated in similar tones of green and blue and really come together. Check in was fast and easy and the clerk was friendly.
The room is quite spacious, with a separate sitting/desk area, bedroom, kitchenette and bathroom. The small touches, like an iHome alarm clock, were really nice. The flatscreen TV is large and swivels so you can view from bed or the sitting area, the bed exceptionally comfortable, the shower really great. The A/C works well, but predictably, the first half of the room doesn't get quite as cool. The only concern I had was that the pool looked like it needed a little bit of chemical servicing and sure enough, later that night they closed it for cleaning.
Breakfast and WiFi are included. Breakfast was pretty standard as far as morning carbohydrates go--cereals, fruit, pastries, toast, oatmeal, made-your-own waffles, biscuits and gravy, yogurt, juice and milk. I was there on a Tuesday morning and had no problem with the availability of anything around 8 AM.
The hotel is located close to several smaller shopping malls that include several local and chain restaurants. It was about 15-20 minutes away from downtown Birmingham, but the drive is beautiful so you don't really mind!
