Reviewed 2 May 2017

Our room was large, clean, with comfortable beds and chairs, but the best part of our stay here was the welcoming, friendly, helpful desk staff. We were in Birmingham for a wedding and the staff went out of their way to accommodate our impromptu family take out lunch gathering in the lobby area. They also encouraged us to visit in the lobby or outside in the lovely, comfortable seating area after the wedding. These hotel staff people made our stay extra special and we appreciated their help and friendliness.

Room Tip: Our room had a nice, small, private balcony just about the covered hotel entry.

I love this location. This is my 3rd stay here. Terrific rooms, clean and quiet. Close to shopping, eateries and entertainment. The staff is always welcoming and I feel safe staying here. Don't short change yourself & if you like Marriott, become a member!

For the cost compared to Hyatt Place or Drury this place really isn't worth it with the bed comfort lacking and the amenities also sparse. I wanted to get some coffee cream for my wife in the morning and all that was available is the dry stuff. We also didn't sleep well and found the bed uncomfortable. We will look elsewhere on our next visit to Birmingham.

Dear RaginCajun79,

Thank you for providing feedback for our hotel. Please accept our sincere apology for your experience. Our hotel does have real creamer available in the Bistro that is available to you 24-7 along with Starbuck's coffee. The only access to powdered creamer would be through housekeeping for our in-room coffee. I know this does not help for your previous stay but if you visit Courtyards in the future, you don't have to use powdered creamer. Our mattresses are new and we have had a lot of positive feedback but I understand that everyone has preferences when it comes to firmness.

Best regards,
Beth J

Stayed in room 208 the last sunday in March... WONT BE BACK! The room had a smell to it that we couldnt put our finger on until we pulled back the sheets the next moring on the bed next to the window only to discover a LARGE brown stain that appeared to be urine/blood mix perhaps!!!! GROSS! The room was tiny and the bed slept terrible! The water pressure in the shower was bad and the pool was not only TINY but had WAY to much chemicals in it! You could hardly breath when you walk in the pool area and the next day my sons and mothers skin was red, sore and peeling from it! We called to notify then manager and she could care less about ALL the problems we had on our stay! NOT EVEN AN APOLOGY! Please stay elsewhere, there are CLEANER places in the area. I will never stay in a hotel owned by Marriot due to the poor way this was handled and no one even cared about ehat the pool did to my childs skin!

Stayed: March 2017

Dear spideymom7,

Thank you for your feedback. Our pool chemicals are on an automated system monitored by our national provider. The hotel receives an alert if the chemicals are off.

The only record I have of your contact with the hotel was after departure when Expedia called the hotel to make us aware of your issues. The Assistant General Manager asked the Expedia associate to have you contact the property to complete an incident report and provide a resolve. This is our process and we would still love the opportunity to speak with you directly.

Please accept our sincere apology,

Beth J

Stayed here l night . No problems . Another typical Marriott property, as expected. Entrance wasn't easily marked but we found the front door after driving all the way around. Definitely would stay again.
