This is the perfect location and place to stay when in Birminham for a concert at the civic center. The hotel is very clean and more upscale than one would think of when thinking of typical inns. The rooms are huge. The bartender made the drinks perfectly. There was no wait at the bar but i did notice waiting for table service was a bit longer. A very short walk to the civic center so did not have to worry about driving and the parking fees at the civic center.
