I booked this place with an expectation that at close to $* per night that I would get quality on par with the price. In reality this hotel is poorly maintained and dirty. There are groups of people who like to hang out in the atrium until 230 AM and the sound will actually carry all the way up to the 16th floor. The room was at the level that I would expect at Motel 6, which is a disapointment when you consider the costs. The room had furniture that looked as if it had been in the room since the opening of the Hotel over 30 years ago and it was in the expected condition, scuffed and shabby looking. The bathroom floor looked very dirty and nasty, and it was obvious that the hotel has only had minimal updates since it opened decades ago. The reason this place is so disipointing is that you expect far more from a hotel of this chain, and to be blunt, you get far less than cheaper hotels here. For this price, I will either stay at the Marriot or the Galleria next time I am in Birmingham, If I want something on parr with this hotel as far as quality, I'll save money and stay at a motel. After staying here I felt incredibly cheated, fortunately I was fortunate to have decent company otherwise, the stay would have "sucked"...I will never stay here again.
