Room was clean and as expected. View of the parking deck tho. Front desk staff is nice. Parking..meh. They really ought to not charge. I used the back lot, not the pay parking garage but still had to pay. Breakfast (not included) was good and quickly prepared. One weird thing that happened was there was a girl talking on her...

If you need to be at UAB for procedures and want a comfortable place to stay this is your place. The staff were very nice. The Bistro has surprisingly good food and drinks. The room was spacious and clean. The Ice machine was not working on the third floor when I was there but the staff brought ice to my...

We've stayed here before and we loved it, this time our rate was different. We usually get the military rate but this time they wouldn't allow it because the NCAA championship was going on. Sooo don't give the military rate so you can make more money? Always say "Thank you for your service" until we can make more money. A...

Hotel needs a facelift but clean and reasonably comfortable. Front desk staff was friendly. "Bistro" on site. Off site parking . Room next door partied late, thin walls meant I heard their jokes. Not funny.

I travel to UAB a lot, for medical purposes, and we always stay here, as it is connected to the hospital, and very convenient for us. The rooms are quite big, nicely decorated and always clean, the staff is great as always at any Marriott. It is within walking distance to many types of restaurants and activities as well, there...

Always a good experience at this hotel right across from UAB hospital and clinics. I came for a doctor visit and stayed at this hotel the night before. Staff was friendly and helpful as always, giving us great directions to restaurants nearby and making sure our room was feather free and just right. Super comfy bed, quiet room near elevator,...

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...

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
