Since my first review, I have returned another three times. This has become my go-to hotel in Birmingham, and as long as the great service from Nina, Chelsea, and the rest of the staff continues, I will always come back. Nina has gone above and beyond more than once, and certainly made this hotel feel like home.

Stayed here for business trip at St. Vincent's Hospital. Very convenient. Rooms were clean. Staff friendly. Breakfast included and was decent. Happy hour dinner was very welcome on Monday after a very long day and absolutely no desire to go out. Would stay here again

Lots of great places to eat and socialize within walking distance of the hotel. The Galleria is just minutes away. The service at the Residence Inn was exceptional. Every staff member...

I came to Birmingham for an event at UAB. I stayed in the hotel 6 nights. My room was very clean and the housekeeping staff were excellent.

Room selection and design is great for relaxing in after a long day of activities. Front desk remembered my name from two days ago and has provided fantastic service. Seeing as I travel for work three out of four weeks a month, I know hotels and the Residence Inns are one of my absolute favorites.
