The rooms are very spacious, quiet, and clean. Staff is friendly and eager to help. On-site parking that costs $10.00 is not adequate at all. I will not be staying at this hotel ever again due to poor parking. I do not recommend this hotel due to poor parking.

We apologize that you had difficulty with our parking. All downtown hotels charge for parking due to the limited amount of parking space. Please feel free to contact me so we can discuss this further. Thank you!

Located where you can walk to many local restaurant, this hotel provides a great place to rest. Pretty quiet street side you may wish to get a room that is odd numbered to get the back. Clean and neat with friendly staff. The toilet / shower area was small but the sink was outside of that area which was nice....

I love this place, I wish I could have stayed here longer- it'd be a great place for a stay longer then 3 days. This place is complete with a stovetop, full refrigerator, microwave and living area. They even provide you with all Kitchen utensils you may need. The only negative thing I'd have to say about this place is...

We are traveling from NorCal to Orlando, with 3 kids under 10. Needless to say it can be a bit crazy. There is nothing to throw a wrench into your schedule like awful weather.

We rented a one bedroom suite and it was fantastic. I've never stayed at Marriott before, but I will definitely be back. The service was phenomenal. Super friendly staff. The room was very large and CLEAN. The only thing I was not fond of was the carpets were still damp from being cleaned. However, that was the only thing that...

This hotel was just incredible. The staff alone made our stay what it was, greeting us every time we entered, wishing us a great whatever-we-were-doing each time we left. Management should be incredibly proud of their staff. Not just those at the front desk, but really, throughout the property. The rooms were very nice and clean, comfortable beds, and (like...

I had to bring my family here after our house incurred storm damage. I was very impressed by the professionalism and attentiveness of the staff. The hotel is located within walking distance of some very good restaurants as well.

This residence inn was really good. Very nice room, excellent gym, walking distance to some fantastic restaurants (you have to go to Clyde's gastro pub) and easy parking right in the back. Much better than the Courtyard downtown. The breakfast could be a little better but was fine. I have stayed at a few residence inn's this year and they...

We stayed here on Friday, July 19. It is located in the downtown area, very convenient to UAB and the 5 points area that offers a variety of restaurants from fast food to fine dining and nightlife.
