Hampton Inn & Suites Birmingham Downtown - The Tutwiler

The historic Hampton/Tutwiler in Birmingham AL is both historic and modern. The renovations in 2007 and 2013 provide the guest with both historic ambience and modern amenities. I would recommend paying the extra for one of the suites, the extra space and sitting room well worth it for a stay of more than a night.

We rolled into Birmingham early evening last Tuesday during a college tour trip. The entrance was a bit difficult to locate with 2 large buses on the front side and the back entrance obscured during rush hour. Though this is a valet only hotel, my husband found a spot by the front door and proceeded to check in.
A valet provided us with a rolling cart with wheels nearly flat and watched as we loaded up the cart with our luggage-with no offer to help. He graciously accepted our keys and our tip but did nothing to earn it as I observed that the car hadn't even been moved from its space until almost midnight. After discussing my disdain with the lack of integrity of his co-worker and questioning why the car was now moved leaving a vacant space, Centario graciously moved the car back to the hotel lot.
This is the most formal Hampton Inn I've ever visited. It's quite beautiful and definitely a more refined atmosphere. I appreciated the comfortable sitting rooms in the lobby where I could conduct some business while the family slept in.
We were upgraded to a suite which was fantastic for our group of 5. Providing 2 queen sized beds and a living room area with a pull out couch, refrigerator, microwave and bar. The bathroom provided all of the necessary amenities but the shower was a bit of a problem. We had to call maintenance, who arrived in a reasonable amount of time and was able to fix it quickly.
We were so tired from driving that we decided to eat in the restaurant in the hotel. It had a bar area and cozy environment. The menu was a bit sparse though. Thankfully our server offered our son the menu for the 'bar' patrons which included all of the selections on our menu but additional choices such as a burger which is more to a teenager's liking.
The fitness room was one of the best I've seen. It is spacious, provides free weights, cable machine, cardio machines, yoga mats and swiss ball. I wish I had time (and energy) to have used it.
The hotel seemed to be centrally located. I enjoy exploring and photography. It was an easy walk to the Civil Rights Museum and 16th Street Baptist Church, Art Museum, and Convention Center. There is so much to explore in Birmingham that I wish I had more time!
This place deserves more than 4 stars and I'd stay here again but wouldn't be so generous with a tip for a lazy valet. Thanks to Centario and also to our server Clorissa at Century.

I needed a night away from home to relax and enjoy some me time. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable. It was nice to be able to access my computer and lay back and watch TV. I would recommend Hampton Inn to my friends and family.

We stayed here for the SEC gymnastics championship this weekend. We arrived early on Saturday when they were booked solid and they still accommodated our early checkin so that we could get to the meet on time. Ellina even soothed my frazzled nerves with a Toblerone bar! Everyone at the desk was friendly and and helpful.

We were told when we made our reservation that we could self-park for $10 and that was not an option. Valet parking is $19 and worth every penny downtown! Bonus that the weekend valet (whose name I sadly did not get) is exceptionally helpful, even giving us directions and advice on local places to eat.

Our room was spotlessly clean with very comfortable beds and bedding. It was also very quiet without the usual hotel noise during the night. The blackout drapes work very well covering the street lights. Complimentary wifi was spotty during the evening but worked fine this morning.

Breakfast is complimentary as well. We were pleasantly surprised to find sausage, eggs, waffles, and fresh fruit along with the basic cereal and oatmeal. Everything was delicious!

This is a beautiful old building that's being maintained nicely. We were very happy with our visit and would definitely stay here again.

We had a block of rooms for our wedding guests and also a honeymoon suite for us of the night after the wedding. Trisha Conrad, Director of Catering, was a pleasure to work with! The stuff was great and the hotel is gorgeous. And you can't beat the location!!! It's not our first time staying at this hotel, and we will definitely come back again!

Room Tip: fire place suite is our favorite :)

Overall, the hotel is very nice, quiet, and centrally located to the civic center. The hotel offers a free hot breakfast and was very good each day. The staff were very attentive to our needs during our stay. I would definitely choose this hotel again.

We traveled to Birmingham to see Elton John at the BJCC. The Tutwiler was the perfect location. There is a beautiful park between the hotel and the concert hall and only about a 5 minute walk. There are several restaurants, from Subway to bbq to 5 star, within easy walking distance of the hotel and the staff is super friendly and accomodating. Their valet service is top notch. The rooms were clean, plush, and felt newly renovated.
We had a wonderful experience and look forward to visiting again.
