This Marriott is conveniently tucked away on the Colonnade Parkway which roughly parallels 459. Approached from 280 the Parkway circles you west for less than a mile. The Courtyard is on the right near a Country Inn whose signage is both brighter and bigger. The Marriott’s signage is unlit and only sharp eyes will spot its small rectangular shape. We initially drove by, necessitating a U-turn beyond the next traffic signal.
The hotel must be popular; parking is better than 80% full. Check in was efficient and friendly. Our room was clean. The bed was comfortable. Temperature control was easy. We had no problems sleeping.
This is an ideal hotel for adult travelers who value convenience and quiet at a location just south of Birmingham near Cahaba Heights, Vestavia, Hoover and Mountain Brook. There is a Bistro off the Lobby, an indoor pool, and an exercise room. Within 10 minutes of this Courtyard are a Whole Foods, a Fresh Market, at least two coffee shops (Starbucks and Jimmy Johns), multiple restaurants, and the Summit Mall. Take 280 north and you’re in Birmingham inside 20 minutes.
Now that I know where it is, I think I’ll be back when next I’m in the area.
