I travel periodically to UAB in Birmingham and recently changed my hotel choice to the Residence Inn. I was so pleased with the facilities, location, and services that I've been back twice and plan on returning next month. It is my NEW favorite Birmingham hotel.
The small apartment features a comfortable bed, small living room, and handy kitchen. The latter has been very useful when we order take-out food (I recommend the nearby Rocky's Pizza & Italian Foods and the New China Town Restaurant). If you feel like dining in, it's a short walk to several excellent restaurants in the Five Points area (I recommend the Highlands Bar & Grill and Chez Fon Fon).
This Residence Inn has a nice fitness room, an outdoor pool, great front desk service, a good free breakfast, and free Internet. My only complaint is having to pay for parking and sometimes having to walk a block to find an empty parking slot. Overall, however, I still rate this a Tripadvisor five-star property.
