Classic and elegant! Loved it- will stay again for sure- love the location if you are spending the night in Birmingham. Rooms are comfortable and quiet. Valet service is on point and drinks at the grille were great!

Very nice hotel. Very expensive, but pleasant despite that. Staff were friendly and attentive. The only problem was that there was some kind of event one evening and I could hear the bass from the dance music in my room all night long. That was not enjoyable. But the rest of the hotel was very nice.

We had a junior suite with the romance package. Wonderful experience!! Everything was perfect from the champaign, the rose petal turndown, chocolate covered strawberries and the "special" intimacy gift! I will be looking forward to other holiday package deals!

Same overall experience as the Four Seasons Hotel but in a boutique hotel setting. Staff are friendly and helpful. Lobby and other public areas, and rooms feel luxurious. Beds were mostly comfortable (too hard for my liking).

The Townsend Hotel in Birmingham is excellent. Great bar in the Rugby Grille and the rooms are amazing. This was a special occasion for me and my girlfriend and it exceeded her expectations. Would definitely book again.

The overall stay at the Townsend Hotel was great. I do believe the value is a little pricey when I am comparing it to the Athenium Hotel. The food was great at the Rugby Grill and the staff was friendly and helpful.

Best hotel in the area! This charming hotel is top notch from the staff to the rooms to the beds. If I can stay here it is always a treat. This hotel feels like home and they even leave chocolates on your bed at night! What a great hotel experience!
