“Perfect place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

Our family stayed at the Residence Inn downtown Birmingham for a sightseeing vacation. The room was like an apartment with microwave, stove, dishwasher and refrigerator. They have a decent sized pool that we used every day, right next to the workout room. I once ran on the treadmill while my husband place outside by the pool. Full breakfast was included in our stay - lots of options, including healthy ones, and a waffle maker too. Best part about staying here? We were so close to everything! If we were super ambitious, we could have walked a mile or two to all the sightseeing spots!

I love staying at Residence for the full size fridge and stovetop. Everything was great and the room clean and fresh smelling. The only complaint I would have is the parking. If you arrive late, you may have to park on the street.

Room Tip: I was on the 7th floor (713) and the view wasn't that great but I travel for my job so the view...

We stay at the hotel a couple times a year and have always had a great clean room and the staff is very good. The hotel is within walking distance of great food and nightlife. Parking is our only issue.

We stayed one night on our way to FL. Our experience at this hotel was just OK. We didn't hate it, but we are also not racing to hurry back. Average room, average breakfast, average hotel parking. Average. My sister and her hubby got stuck in the elevator the night of our stay. So, there was that. It was fine for what we needed - a clean room for a night's stay while on a road trip. But if we were to return to Birmingham for an extended stay, I'm confident we'd book a reservation at another hotel.

Very nice room and beautifully appointed hotel. Everything met my high expectations. Downtown and the civil rights area are radial accessible by car and public transportation. We had no problem with parking. I highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Birmingham.

We were visiting Birmingham to see the Elton John concert and we didn't want to have to make the long drive back home after the concert, so we booked this hotel. Even though the hotel is billed as being within walking distance of the BJCC, it's more than a mile away, which is a stroll during the day, but a little more challenging when you're dodging cars trying to and from g the concert in a not-so-great part of town. The hotel's primary clientele are family and friends of patients at UAB hospital, which is right across the street from the hotel. So, don't expect free parking and don't expect to get any sleep if constant ambulance sirens keep you up at night.

Room Tip: Stay at a different hotel.

We are located 1.68 miles from the BJCC which is on the north side of Birmingham. I apologize if you were given incorrect information on the distance from the hotel. We typically recommend a cab to the BJCC to all of our guests, as it is a busy area during concerts. We apologize that you experienced ambulance noise during your stay. Thank you for your feedback.

I've stayed at the property numerous times over the past few years. Staff is always very helpful and friendly. Rooms are spacious, clean and updated. Only downside is their slightly limited parking area behind the hotel mixed in with other buildings.
