I am a dispatch and my driver who stayed at this hotel tells me it is close to everything. Although it's undergoing renovation, outside is not ecstatic pleasing, however everything inside is top notch.
Definitely a recommend for re-staying.

The front desk woman was exceptionally helpful and nice. A good breakfast is included with nice sitting area. My room was larger than expected with a love seat, two table lamps, one floor lamp, desk, large television, and king bed. The floors were carpeted except for the bathroom which was tiled. It was clean. Good water pressure in the shower with lots of hot water. It had a hair dryer and coffee maker. Check in is at 3 p.m. and checkout is 11 a.m. The snack machine is in the breakfast area. The check in area closes at 10 p.m. It is an older property than some I have recently stayed at in Birmingham, but for the price I feel it is a jewel of a place and I will return there.

Hotel was clean and beds were comfy. The rooms were quiet. The breakfast was alright, really not much to write home about, yet it feed our bellies and that is what counts. The pool was nice and the kids enjoyed swimming.
