“Nice Turnaround”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

Stayed here in February and wrote a not so good review. Returned the last two weeks on business and found a big change. Housekeeping was immaculate, all of the exercise equipment worked and there were towels and headsets in the workout area (unlike before), no trouble with my keys (unlike before). Seems they have gotten it together.

Knowing we'd be in Birmingham for several weeks following surgery,we decided to stay at the Marriott Courtyard downtown UAB. What a great decision !! The convenience and easy access to UAB Hospital enabled our family to go back and forth throughout the day without having to worry about a car, parking, etc. Good restaurants are within walking distance ...excellent ones just a few miles away. Our room (opted for a suite because of long stay) was clean,comfortable,and maid service was dependable. Also,having the Bistro Café on the lobby level was a big plus in the morning and in the evening hours..especially after a long day at the hospital. The hotel staff was friendly,courteous,and helpful ....and the General Manager was terrific...definitely a visible "hands-on" manager..accessible and accommodating from check-in to check-out. We highly recommend this hotel!!

You can't beat the location if you are visiting UAB hospital. I remember a nurse saying that they will give you a special rate if you are visiting someone in the hospital. We got a better rate using the AAA rate, though.
I thought the staff was very friendly, and they were nice about letting us check in early (there were rooms available). We've always made reservations last minute with no problem.
The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable.

Stayed here for a night where I had an early flight. What you would expect from a newer courtyard. Many restaurant selections within walking distance. Room was nice, big desk for working. Great choice for that part of Birmingham.

Stayed one night for a wedding 4/27. Overall the room was very clean and well-appointed, so no complaints there. The hotel is also within walking distance to the Five Points area which gives plenty of options for food and bars. Check in and out were very easy, though we did have some issues getting our room keys to work.

The one thing to beware of with this hotel, as mentioned previously, is its location. As it is right next to the hospital, there is a very high level of noise both from sirens and from helicopters. This can happen at any and all hours. Though it's obviously worth mentioning that there is nothing at all the hotel can do about this. If you're in need of a room because of the hospital, you'll be all set here.

While overall good, I likely would not stay here again simply due to the noise factor.

Room Tip: As stated before, higher floor rooms are less subject to the street noise.

I got this hotel through Priceline for a very good deal. It was a little hard to find and to figure out parking which did cost. Room was nice, with king size bed and couch. Front desk staff was very friendly and helped me figure out where to go to dinner and see a movie. Hotel did not include a continental breakfast but did have a small restaurant where I had a mocha and yogurt, which was nice and light for a great start to my day.

This is a nice hotel with comfortable rooms and a pleasant lobby. Very easy to get to UAB hospital by going in the parking garage door, going up one floor and walking through the skybridge into one of the main areas of the hospital. The staff here is cordial. We would stay here again.
