Hotel Highland, although a little older, was very nice. Our suite was very large and had a great view of the Vulcan statue in Birmingham. Everything was clean and the staff were as nice as they could be. We were there with our dog and they were very pet-friendly. Our primary complaint was the late-night noise from the five-points district which we overlooked. The Friday night partiers woke us up several times. At 3:00 AM, a group of motorcycles cruised thru a few times and kept us awake for about half an hour. That's nothing the hotel could control. The hotel and staff did a great job!
Our biggest disappointment in the area is more due to the city of Birmingham's lack of cleanliness. Five Points is one of the main attractions of the city, but it was filthy! Litter was everywhere and had not been picked up for some time. Broken glass was all over the grass medians separating the street and sidewalk. Paper and plastic cups and bottles were just thrown in the street. One of the problems is the lack of trashcans, and the fact that trashcans that were present, were overflowing. Very disappointing!
