I had a wonderful one night stay at the Redmont All of the staff from valet, to front desk, to restaurant staff, were very friendly and helpful This it a downtown hotel and great for business travelers or a weekend getaway

There is a rooftop bar that is supposed to be amazing However it was closed due to the weather and short staffing I had drinks and appetizers in the restaurant Both were very good The room was not large but had a desk and king size bed which was very comfortable The Redmont is on the National Register of Historic Places It is also listed as the most haunted hotel in Alabama I did not see any ghosts Maybe next time…………

Danny Haralson

We didn’t stay here but we will! We’re from Bhm and next time we want a downtown evening, this will be the place Hotel is nice (Hilton Curio) with a long history but the staff was the best! We went (small group 10 +) stopped by roof top bar for a drink Staff opened doors, helped us figure out elevators (only 1 goes to penthouse/ bar) and served drinks

We travel often but think we’ve found a gem right here with service & pleasantness leading the way (how rare!)

Dana Aderhold

The staff at check in was less than helpful The staff at checkout was helpful though Room was dirty

$35 to valet was ridiculous when they are just moving the car to a public parking lot across the street that I could have parked in myself for 1/2 the price Hotel smelled old and musty Homeless people harassing me outside of the hotel I didn’t feel safe and will never be back

I have been employed with Hilton in the past and have enjoyed working dual property Hampton’s in Tuscaloosa, AL for 3 years I applied for the Night Auditor position the last week in Feb and was hired on 02/23/22 (terminated on 04/29/2022)

The Assistant General Manager, Marcus Gordon, called me at 9:00 pm on a Sunday evening to schedule an interview That was the first red flag but I needed employment so I did not make it a huge deal I was employed at this property for 90 days before being wrongfully terminated The General Manager, Karen Jacob, fired me about 30 minutes shy of 3:00pm after working a night audit shift that morning The management team at this property is defective and below par to say the least There is no communication between the team members and management and it shows In the 3 months that I was hired here not 1 of the employees from any department had ANYTHING nice to say about Karen There has been multiple accusations of stealing of money by management and maintenance from numerous staff members I experienced 3 different encounters of theft of my personal items while being employed at this location The GM does not directly deal with confrontation, she doesn’t come out of her office and will literally, deliberately ignore guests concerns and allow her phone to ring with no intentions of answering The management team at this property portrays a facade of concern and compassion for their team members but that is most certainly not the case Marcus, the assistant GM, faithfully gossips about team members and constantly makes jokes about terminating members of the staff I would never in a million years recommend working at this property to my worst enemy If I could leave anything lower than 1 star I would leave the rating in the negative

Belinda Forman

The room was very clean I was disappointed that they didn’t serve a free breakfast and they didn’t offer coffee in the lobby throughout the day The coffee maker in the room did not work but then when I was able to pour water through it it was nasty

It was like dirty and nastyThat was very comfortable The room was very nice I would stay here again anytime

Dawn Swinford

999% of the employees were super friendly and nice Wasn’t too excited about the waitress, but she was they only one, and was quite busy, so I understood and won’t complain

The waffle I ordered was undercooked, but again, I didn’t complain Was disappointed that there was no continental breakfastThere was no hand soap of any kind in our bathroom Wasn’t happy about thatWhen checking out, my husband had a couple minor complaints about not having enough towels or pillows The lady at the desk said that they didn’t realize that there was more than 1 guest in that room, since there was only 1 name on the card Uhm WHAT? Really? When I made the reservation, I specifically said it was for 3 adults and 1 child That’s why I had to pay extra More people Overall, not really happy I expected more from the name Hilton It was ok But still everyone was super nice and friendly and helpful

Clean and update rooms Staff is extremely friendly and kept asking if everything was to my satisfaction This was both at night during checkin and in the morning during checkout

A pleasure to deal with and would happily stay here again Would never stay down the street at the 2 Hilton brand hotels that was the worst experience of my life and only made better by how sweet and nice the staff here was Hotel was honestly cleaner and nicer as well

Joshua Johanning

It’s “okay” But I wouldn’t recommend the hotel as a Platinum/Titanium if you want hotel breakfast (or anyone else who might want to pay for it)The room was fine along with the internet

I thought my room felt a little damp with the wall AC not working as well, but it was livableMy two biggest complaints:- no breakfast first 2 days of my stay because the person hadn’t arrived – instead of using my $10 for a heated up breakfast sandwich I had to spend it on snacks I didn’t need- billed for breakfast when breakfast was open even though I had my $10 daily creditFollow-ups on requested items didn’t happen It’s okay, but perhaps try elsewhere

tom kandler

Completely dissatisfied My room was overpriced and dirty Hotels are saying they don’t do daily cleaning because it is taking longer when guests check out to ‘completely clean’ the rooms

Weren’t they doing that prior to COVID? They are also using the same excuse for not having complimentary coffee in the lobby, but they have put in mini coffee shops that you have to pay for I’ve learned my lesson and will look on AirBnB next time

When checking in I was asked to initial and sign the agreement about a $20 incidentals hold on my credit card, smoke free mandate, etc I asked for a copy of the agreement, since I was required to sign it, and was told that I could not have a copy of it by the employee and manager I explained that I wanted a copy because it contained my signature on the agreement and the manager politely did ask me to wait a minute while she consulted with the General Manager (GM) who was there

The GM approved for the manager to make me a copy I offered to pay for the copy, but was told it was not needed Otherwise, the hotel appears to be newly built, is located near convenience stores, pharmacy and grocery store It also has a pleasant smell

My room was clean and nothing was shabby That is the only good thing I can say There was no shampoo

They told me they had run out a couple weeks prior That is hard to believe for a name brand hotel But the least they could have done was tell me before I left home and I could have brought my own shampoo My room faced a 12 lane highway ( yes, 6 lanes in each direction!) The noise was constant and explained why the room had a white noise machine I was attending a seminar and no one in the hotel knew where it was so I had to wander around to find it One of the attendees told me his room rate which was $50/night less than mine He said when he made his reservation he asked if there was a discount rate for attendees I went to the front desk about this, and they told me too bad, nothing they could do I could try calling sales So I did and Sales said I had to register on line which was a lie as the other person I spoke to attending the seminar did not register on line he made his reservation by phone Just a bad experience overall

sheldon klinger

There is a fine line between a very good hotel and a less than average hotel The check in was very slow, showing that the manager was not willing to come and help check customers in Secondly, there were laundry carts sitting by the elevator

This is evidence of poor housekeeping And, there was molding, or trim pulled off all over my area, including my room It would have been nice for them to inform me there was construction going on, when I checked in There was no TV signal

Whitney D.

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times over the years, and after last night’s stay, I believe they should’ve just remained closed To begin, at checkout I was told that the room choice I booked was no longer available The guy who checked me in was even excited that I decided to only stay one night instead of the two I booked (so obvious they overbooked)

I took the room they had, and we noticed we had no small face towels in our room, so we requested them and were told they were dirty, and that cleaning staff didn’t arrive until the next morning That was fine, so the next morning we called around 7, and we were told they would be in by 8 I then went to the desk at 8:25, and the staff member was purposely rude to myself and everyone else who was in line She even turned her back to me to speak with another staffer, and made it clear she didn’t care She did inform me that cleaning staff didn’t get in until 8:30, before turning her back to me, though I asked if I could give her my room number for towels and she wrote it down By 10:00, still no towels and no word On top of that, water did not get hot (only warm) and the shower had hair in there from the previous people When I went to check out, customer service from her was just as terrible She is so mean to everyone for no reason Why have someone like this working your front desk if you are a 4 star hotel? Very disappointed and surely won’t stay again The Westin has much better service There was also no hair dryer in the room, which was odd I completely understand that by today being Father’s Day, you guys may be short staffed, but there is absolutely a way to inform customers and to have the employees who do come to work offer an apology for the inconvenience Staying at this hotel is no small fee, and I am disgusted I will say the valet team was extremely nice, but most people are when working for tips

Like most of the reviews I read before staying here, I have to say that the best thing about this hotel is the staff They were very welcoming and helped me find a spot for my motorcycle trailer – very accommodating Unfortunately, the rest of the hotel was far less appealing

The rooms are dirty The desk chair and couch had stains all over them The sheets and pillows were clean The bathroom had a broken toilet seat that moved all around when opening/closing The floor by the entry was sticky for some reason The coffee maker in the room did not look like it had been wiped down at all, spots and hard water streaks I ran it a few times through with hot water before using it The bathtub was a little dingy in the cornersI didn’t use it The remote control was not cleaned or marked as “disinfected” or in a bag – hard to believe in the times of COVID The breakfast the next morning was good, if basic, and the buffet style set-up was organized and clean If I had to stay in Birmingham again, it would not be at this hotel Not enough value, comfort or cleanliness The Summit area has new, better hotels that I would look into

Misti Ramey

This is the place to stay It’s not too far off the highway but you can’t hear any road noise The staff were all very nice

The place looks well kept The beds were clean and very comfortable The room was average size but the high ceilings made it feel bigger There’s a mini fridge and microwave along with a hair dryer in the room The AC worked well There was very little noise from the hallways The breakfast is a real meal not some muffin and an apple thing I travel often for work and will stay here again I love that they don’t want to charge me $100+ for a port either

Ginger Given

Front desk guy was super friendly 😊 And the room was huge! I am handicapped (use a cane) so the size of the room plus grab bars by the toilet and in the shower are very helpful! Also had a shower seatThe only drawback was the low water pressure in the sink and the bathroom tile was a bit stickyWe enjoyed our stay here! There was a BBQ restaurant very close as well

Saw’s Juke Jointvery tasty!

One of the most beautiful upscale hotels that I have ever stayed I needed a quiet get away, which was perfect However, the rooftop bar and the restaurant is great for a great time

So has the best of both worlds Dominique was so caring I was thankful for her hospitality All the front desk reps were great, even when i needed something in the middle of the night Valet had a staff issue, the lot is next to the hotel which made it easy for me to just get and park my car Overall it was an amazing experience Thankful I chose to stay there

Izz Noland

Pros: Very nice hotel in downtown Birmingham My wife and I went for a “stay-cation” and definitely worth it with The Yard restaurant on site for dinner and brunch Highly recommend the somewhat eclectic rooms, and nice views!Cons: The only downside is that some of the in room amenities were not 100%

One of the shower heads looked like it would fall off any minute, the shower gel was empty, and housekeeping came by an hour before checkout asking if we had checked out so she could clean We heard her in the hallway knocking on the other doors as well

Brian Wray

The Place is Beautiful and has a very eclectic and high end feel Really Posh But, this is a place where it is Form/Design over function

Valet Staff is Awesome and very helpfulThe Front desk staff (evening and morning both) seemed a little put-out/annoyed by our arrival and questions, but the Valet team was helpfulThis is a place where form trumps functionThe rooms are tiny, halls are tiny (luggage carts barely fit through the halls or in the rooms) luggage carts are rickety and barely holding togetherThe Rooms are beautiful and eclectic (which is why we chose it), but this form has take precedent over function It is not meant for FamiliesThe Toilet Room door and shower doors are opaque green/yellow glass and do not seal, do not have fans, are hot as hell, and full conversations can be had, hands can be held while using both ie: lacks a sense of privacyThe toilet room might as well be called a sauna because it was as hot as onenot a place where you want to start sweating just walking in The listing was weird and again, not meant for function, but rather formForm/decor was nice, but it lacked some much function, It will not be a place we stay at next time we are in townAlso, the bar/restaurant is not open on Sunday, almost the entire downtown area is closed, so definitely do not recommend a Sunday stay in Birmingham Downtown

What a gem! First time at a Valley Hotel, love what Hilton has done w/the brand Valet service was convenient & Rachel H made check-in a breeze Accommodated my high floor request without hesitation & was thrilled with her room choice

Thanks Rachel!Room had floor to ceiling windows, corner view & the bed was very comfortable Still has new hotel smell!The restaurant was very good, breakfast was excellent There’s also loads of dining options right outside (Highly recommend the Little Donkey Mexican just 2-doors down!)If only there was a pool…Highly recommend staying here!

We had one of our nieces’ wedding rehearsal dinner there and many of her future in-laws and friends were staying thereAfter the rehearsal dinner, some of us decided to go down to the lobby on the first floor to sit and talkWe were not particularly being loud or obnoxious or anything

Just sitting at a hotel lounge and having conversations just like hotel guests would do Then the lady at the front desk yelled at us as if we were her students and she’s our teacher, saying that we were being too loud and that we need to quiet down because she can’t hear customers on the phoneWe didn’t say anything the first time and tried to talk little quieter Then, after about 10 minutes, the lady yelled at us again saying that we were being too loud Once again, we were not particularly being loud or obnoxious at all Just having some conversationsI just never had that kind of experience at any hotels anywhere – a front desk clerk telling (yelling at) guests to quiet down at the lobby I mean isn’t that what hotel lobby is for? For guests to sit and have conversations?Then, I tried to talk to her to see what is going on but she would not talk to me by saying that she’s too busy talking to her customers on the phoneI tried to politely ask her who’s the manager on duty is but she would not give me his/her name or the contact information – I guess I can look it up myselfBy then, we all decided that it’s not worth it and just went up to our roomsI asked her name but she kept on waving her finger while she’s talking to someone on the phone and walking away from me She was hiding her name tag with her arm so I couldn’t see her name eitherIt’s probably one of the most unpleasant experiences we’ve ever had staying at a hotelI actually don’t want to give any stars at allThe management needs to train the employees better Where is the customer service We were not there to serve them It’s the other way aroundDo not stay at this hotel

Richard M

Had dinner at the restaurant off the lobby called Ironwood kitchen Food was just ok, nothing special but the cost was extremely high for the meal Three of us with no alcohol, ran $200

00 The service was adequate Save your money as there are so many better restaurants for dinner in the area Stop there at the bar for drinks as that did look inviting

We have currently been staying at this hotel for a few nights for my husband’s work The rooms are very clean, spacious and comfortable Full size fridge, dishwasher (did use), microwave, coffee maker and a few dishes

Bed is comfortable, pillows are too soft for me but I bring mine with me Hotel is very nice and all the staff I have encountered have been super polite and helpful I personally would recommend this hotel Parking lot and area felt safe also

Josh Reimann

We love Home2 Suites, especially for larger families like ours Very spacious and very clean rooms! This specific Home2 though had thin walls as we could hear a person next door talking on the phone Our room was pretty hot throughout the night, even though we had the fan on high and the thermostat on 67

I didn’t take a star off for that because it could’ve been user error 😉 Beautiful pool and great breakfast

Keda C

Good experience overall Hotel is located near lots of restaurants and stores including a Target! Rooms are spacious and have everything you need including a garbage disposal I needed a pet friendly hotel and this one was the best option

They even have an outdoor area for pets with complimentary poop bags However, the garbage can was overflowing with poop baggies and hadn’t been emptied during my four day stay I also wished other guests would clean up after their dog as there was quite a bit of poop in their grass play area! Besides that, it was a lovely stay Would recommend!

Ben Fiedler

Very good people and wonderful food at the restaurant Otherwise: we can hear the people next door to our room and they are just taking at a normal volume, the front doors to the hotel aren’t electric, so they make it hard to enter with luggage and don’t comply with the ADA and you are never greeted by the staff when you arrive back at the hotel PS: the coffee is very bitter

Not coming back

Kimmie Mack

The hotel is really nice and I enjoyed my stay up until checkout day I was sleeping so peaceful when all of a sudden I was rudely awaken by a 915 am knock on the door from housekeeping!!! Why????? This is so tacky to have housekeeping knock on doors!! I know when to checkout!!! Now I have a pounding headache because of this rude awakening!!!

My stay here was pleasant The staff is very matter of fact and no non sense You ask for information and they will provide you with the information when it is available

I only stayed here one night in a double queen room The view was nice I had to shove the door open when coming in but the room was clean and comfy Nothing impressive but all the amenities were accurate and the room was cleaned Breakfast is nothing fancy but I enjoyed the waffles The gym has disinfectant wipes, towels and filtered water If you need something basic and to the point, this is your place

Anthony Johnson

Stayed here for the last two nights and there is a lot to like about this place Beautiful architecture, nice rooms and great location Could have easily given them 4 stars but their front desk personnel had attitudes and in some cases were plain rude

I’m a lifetime Diamond Hilton Honors member and there is a fine line between being a good hotel versus being a great hotel And until the Owners and Management of this hotel require warm customer service this place will always be just a “good” hotel

Barney Moore

Don’t get it twisted, this hotel is not worth your money Clogged drains, cracked sink, cracked toilet, no refrigerator, AC wasn’t working right, very tiny rooms I travel all over the country for work and this was absolutely the smallest hotel room I’ve ever stayed in

Street parking is a pain, not the safest area at night either I found the hotel staff to be kinda rude in general Nothing about this hotel feels historic except maybe the view from the street They serve breakfast on the top floor, so I went up there at 7am and it was 80 degrees in that damn room It’s basically the same terrible breakfast as any other Hampton Inn, but add 10 degrees to the ambient temperature No cold milk or cream at the coffee station, no milk in the fridge, and no fridge in the rooms either Good luck if you stay here I booked 3 nights and dipped out early just to get away from it My best guess is they don’t have the money or staff to properly service the place, but if you’re gonna charge $180/night you better get your act together Beds are so squishy the sheets come popping off Congrats, you’re the worst hotel I’ve been to in 37 nights at Hilton brand hotels in the past few months Now comes the hard part, put some money into this place and make it right Historic shouldn’t mean run-down

The stay wasn’t bad The staff was friendly The breakfast was alright

The hotel needs some updating, hence the 4 out of 5My phone call to book the room was the most horrible experience ever I think they use a third party, at least for when they’re busy If this review was only based on that, I would give it zero stars When I was done w the phone call I was angry and exhausted They took 15 minutes and kept trying to get me to sign up for a bunch of things Plus they were super pushy and when I asked how much the room rate was she made me listen to a whole spiel for 7 minutes before she would give me the price I can’t explain it, you just have to call at a busy time and see for yourself

Read the reviews prior to booking THEY ARE LIES Do NOT book this hotel

1 The room door handle came off in our hand2 The air conditioner leaked all over the floor (3rd floor) Yes The floor under the air conditioner was saturated and we witnessed water dripping down the cord We worried about mold3 Dirty bedspread and holes in the blankets4 The hallway carpets are FILTHY5 The room, hallway, and elevator smelled like smoke6 Mold in the ice machine Obviously we did not useThe kicker was…when we nicely went back to the desk and asked for a different room and listed off the issues the owner was summonsed and stated before we could be given another room she had to see how much of the room we had used WE HAD JUST CHECKED IN!We did not have time to change hotels as we only had one half hour to spare until we were due at the Miss Alabama competitionSeriously Save yourself Do NOT book this hotel

Very nice front desk staff Very helpful and work hard to provide superior customer service Breakfast was fresh and well stocked at all times

Food was very good for a free breakfast offering! The women in charge of the breakfast area was very sweet and asked to clear plates and kept everything filled and clean She was also super nice and answered questions we had about local weather as a winter storm was expected on our drive home to Philadelphia All staff frequently asked us if we needed anything and how our stay was You could tell they really cared and wanted you to have a nice stay at the hotel The rooms were updated and VERY clean Housekeeping was AMAZING! They went above and beyond not just to change sheets and give fresh towels but they tidied up our room as well (putting shoes nicely lined up in closet, wrapping up hair dryer cord etc) Everything was also very clean! We will definitely be back and highly recommend this location!

Andrea at the front desk was always welcoming with a warm and genuine smile, and would greet us upon each encounter As the face of the hotel, you could have not chosen a better representative than her Kudos to her and her exceptional hospitality!Breakfast each morning was equally as delightful

I did not get the name of our breakfast attendant, but she was also equally as pleasant each morning She asked if she could be of assistance and made sure we had everything we needed Items were restocked quickly and efficiently, and the breakfast area was always tidyWith all of the challenges that the hospitality industry faces in these times, it is a breath of fresh air to encounter a team that takes pride in what they do Thank you for a wonderful stay!

If I could leave this review 100 stars I absolutely would!! The entire staff is welcoming, friendly and professional Jasmine, the front desk rep who checked me in was very informative and knowledgeable about the area and the hotel and an all around sweetheart Special thanks to their Housekeeping staff as well!!! My room was so spotless that I COULD’VE eaten off of the floor haha lol

The morning I checked out the breakfast staffed had a full spread prepared, everything was so fresh and delicious This hotel will most certainly be my go-to spot anytime I’m in Birmingham 🙂

Overall stay was pretty good The A/C in the room could have been a little more cooler it was kind of muggy The bar was great, the bartenders were friendly especially the woman on the weekend with the darker hair didn’t get her name

Stayed here for a weekend with my family in 2 separate double rooms Staff was friendly and accommodating Breakfast buffet was nice although about $17 per person, with the buffet you have people still serving you drinks (coffee and water) so I’m sure a large portion of that is the convenience fee

My room was clean, had a small issue in my bathroom the first night, hotel resolved within about 10 minutes Would recommend! Tons of really nice restaurants around as well

Spent two nights at this hotel and was pleased with my choice The room was clean and spacious I will say the sleeper sofa was the most uncomfortable thing ever

I ended up making a bed on the chaise lounge part of the couch with one of the dining chairs for my feet Luckily I’m short so it worked out perfectly with a great view of the tv The lobby/breakfast had plenty of seating that was not on top of the next table I didn’t try the breakfast but it appeared to have a good variety The little market had your basics too The location was great for me as it was walkable to restaurants and most important for me, at least one local coffee shop The best thing about this hotel was definitely the staff Every single person was super friendly and so helpful These days customer service is not always pleasant, but it is at this hotel!!

Nice rooms other than the water damage in the kitchen I loved the two bedroom suite option which made sharing a room with my parents much easier Breakfast is amazing and service was incredibly friendly

The location is nice if you’re visiting a student from UAB and is also located within walking distance from a lot of quality restaurants and bars
