Stay at our hotels in Birmingham, Alabama, in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Visit key historic sites of the Civil Rights movement and experience high-speed thrills at Talladega Superspeedway.
Our Birmingham hotels are near the Civil Rights District, where museums and historic sites memorialize this city's role in the struggle for racial equality in the 1950s and 1960s. The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute mounts exhibitions of African American history and art. Watch a stirring video of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivering his 'I Have a Dream' speech before heading across the street to the 16th Street Baptist Church. Four African American girls were killed in 1963 when racists bombed this historic church. Some 600 vintage and modern motorcycles from around the world fill the galleries of the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum, a short drive from our hotels in Birmingham. NASCAR fans make a pit stop at Talladega Superspeedway to tour the racetrack and honor their favorite drivers at the International Motorsports Hall of Fame and Museum.
Country ham and grits, fried catfish and collards, smoked pork slathered in a tangy sauce-you'll find all the classics of traditional Southern cuisine in Birmingham's high-end eateries and humble barbecue joints. The Five Points South district near our Birmingham hotels is dense with antique stores and bohemian boutiques catering to students at the nearby University of Alabama Birmingham. Bars and clubs in Five Points South fill with high-energy University students, while the WorkPlay entertainment complex draws crowds from across the state for concerts by national rock favorites on the small stage.
Book a stay at our Holiday Inn® Birmingham hotels to cheer on your favorite driver at the Talladega Superspeedway. Watch the NASCAR Sprint Cup series in October, or the Nationwide Series in April.

Holiday Inn Express & Suites Birmingham-Irondale (East)
One of the best hotel experiences I've had. Great service and rooms. I highly recommend this hotel if you are in Birmingham.[Less]
Restocking of amenities
Housekeeping could use a little more detail orientation like restocking used amenities like mouthwash, coffee, sweetener, etc.[Less]
Good location for sightseeing
We arrived early because we had forgotten about the change in time zone from Atlanta. The front desk quickly got housekeeping to complete our room and we were in there within 15 mins. Thanks for such[More] service.
Housekeeping however forgot to replenish our toiletries on our second day. Additionally the breakfast team needed prompting to provide spoons on our second day, and by 7:00 all fresh fruit had gone and no apology from the team. Saw others in the area asking for other hot food to be replenished.[Less]

Decent Value but older hotel
This is an older property whose rooms could use a refresh and more electrical outlets. The room and bathroom were very clean.
The HVAIC was very noisy, but, it did act like a white noise machine.[More] Would have preferred it quieter.
Best part about the stay was the front desk staff. Very responsive to me.[Less]
