Stayed here for an overnight trip to see a band at Iron City. Room was very clean and tidy, and everything was up-to-date. Though we didn't use it, the little kitchen area looked like it had just about everything you would need to cook in the room. There was a huge continental breakfast in the lobby; it looked good but...

Stayed here on a business trip and the room was big and spacious . Room had a full fridge, kitchen area had a small stove and dishwasher also nice granite counter tops. Will certainly stay here next time I am in Birmingham. The staff was great to work with. The exercise room was actually pretty good for a hotel.

A real short drive from the reception venue for the wedding we attended. Everything from sleep quality to cleanliness was what you'd want. Caveats? It was a weekend so on Sunday morning the breakfast area was pretty chaotic with kids moving at full tilt all the time when not lining up again and again to pile their plates with food...

This Residence Inn does an excellent job of providing reasonable accommodations at a very affordable price. It's not fancy, but the rooms are clean and nice, there is free WiFi, and breakfast is included. The location is great -- right next to UAB, walking distance to Five Points.

Had a great experience at this residence Inn. Friendly staff at check Inn. Since I stayed on a weekend night the place was packed with weddings parties. Despite all that I had a quiet night.

My husband and I stayed here for several nights in April. We had a suite, with kitchenette and fireplace on an upper level floor. The hotel was clean and our rooms were quiet, outfitted nicely and the bed was very comfortable. The bedroom was a little small (pathways only, no extra room) but it held a king-size bed and dresser...

Stayed here for a swim meet nearby with our team. Checked in online and called to ask for a quieter room but was not checked in when we arrived. Not to worry though as it was quickly taken care of and they even delivered us a rollaway bed for the weekend. I did not get to take advantage of the...

The Residence Inn is a Marriott. This location was convenient to everywhere we wanted to go, laughing that all was about 10 minutes away. The room was clean, the Housekeeper friendly & efficient, tho she often didn't get to us until late afternoon. The buffet breakfast was pretty typical of many chains these days. Lots of "bread" choices, eggs, meat/potatoes,...
