“Needs some updating but super nice staff”
Reviewed 6 March 2014 via mobile

Placed here by travel agency for a soccer tournament. Not a good place for a large group. Common spaces are practically nonexistent. There were two other teams placed here at the same time. Not a good decision.

Needs updating but staff was really nice and helpful. Appreciated that the pool was warm. Breakfast selections just ok. They were out of things quickly which was frustrating. The hotel is located on a tremendously busy road. The traffic was horrific at all times of the day.

The good news is that the updating was completed in 2014 and the traffic is a little better since the DOT have changed the signaling along HWY280. We are located behind the Chickfila/Marathon Gas station and while this highway 280 will always be busy they have cleaned up most of the issues that would slow down traffic along 280 here in Birmingham

Reviewed 31 January 2014

I was caught homeless on the first day of the perfect snow storm of the US southeast 2014.
By night I still could not find a hotel room in the city and since i am a Marriott Gold Elite, I figured I would push my luck there plus there was gas station in front. They accepted my name on a three pages wait list, but said I could stay in the lobby.There was already lots of people seeking refuge.
Later they brought out food for everybody. Never asked anyone to leave. Later manager Mark at Chick Fil A next door even brought chicken sandwiches to feed us. Then he allowed whoever wanted to sleep in his restaurant. I went then to sleep on the bench. In the morning when I returned to hotel, I realized I could have rested there too.What a great service to humanity.
