This is a nice hotel with an outstanding location. Rooms are clean and comfortable. It has a major drawback. It has a small restaurant/bistro. It is closed by 10:30am. So you can not get a cup of coffee after 10:30am. And they only have one server. It means you have to wait to get anything at the Bistro. Great hotel...

Very clean hotel, very friendly, knowledgeable staff. They were very helpful with any and all questions and requests. Walking distance to Iron City Grill and Workplay Theater. I won't stay anywhere else in B'ham!

We recently had a granddaughter who required surgery at Children's Hosp. This hotel is located within two blocks of the hospital and is right across the street from UAB Hosp. We couldn't have asked for a more convenient location. Rooms were nice enough and staff was very friendly and helpful. Definitely would stay there again if the need arises

Courtyard Marriott Birmingham AL downtown has a good location in downtown. It's just in front of the medical center which is very convenient for patients family members. It's right there at the hospital. For that reason is nosy at nights with ambulance and helicopters. Rooms are well maintained, clean and staff have a good attitude. For Parking you can use...

This is a great hotel that offers a very pleasant stay with pleasant staff. We came as a group and were accommodated at an affordable rate and got a great breakfast to go along with it! I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Birmingham. They would go above and beyond even when not asked!

The only draw back is the parking garage. It is not directly connected to the hotel, as it is shared with the medical center. You have to leave the garage take an elevator down , walk outside and back into the hotel walk thru the lobby and enter another elevator. I would recommend that if you leave the garage and...

I decided to visit my son at the last minute, so I did not have a reservation (huge mistake). I ended up with a handicap room, the toilet would not flush properly, and I did not realize the hotel and the hospital are right next door to each other. I am sure this is perfect if you need to be...

What a nice staff especially tammi at the front desk. She was so helpful with everything during our stay. Thank you so much. The hotel was very clean. The only thing I didn't like was they now charge for parking per day.
