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!

I always stay here because the hotel is the nicest in the area and customer service is the best! They always offer me upgrades that I love and when I come there for any event, they have a surprise for us in the suite.

Had a wonderful birthday visit to the Townsend. The staff and the incredible service they provide, truly sets this place apart. Had great drinks and snacks at the Rugby Grille and a wonderful breakfast there the next morning. Highly recommend.

We actually live in town but enjoy our stays at the Townsend - it's like a vacation! We love the local yet sophisticated feel and have been staying at the Townsend for 15 years on special occasions. The rooms are becoming a bit tired but it feels like home.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience. We were treated very well on our stay and greeted promptly. Our only complaint is that the carpet in our room was stained and it was a little off putting when we entered.
