Featured Birmingham Hotels

Make yourself at home in our hotels in Birmingham, Alabama. In no time you'll be remembering the fallen in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and savoring barbecued ribs right out of the fire pit.

Guests of our hotels in Birmingham can hike up Vulcan Park to the top of Red Mountain. Vulcan, Roman god of fire and the largest cast-iron statue in the world, presides over the peak with its sweeping city views. The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute Museum provides an overview of the city's struggle for racial equality in the 1950s and 1960s. The 16th Street Baptist Church, site of the infamous 1963 bombing that killed four African American girls, sits just across the street. A short drive from our Birmingham hotels is the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum, where you can get a close look at hundreds of rare and vintage motorbikes.

Birmingham's eateries have been perfecting classic Southern recipes for generations. Barbecue pits, diners and restaurants dish up tangy pork ribs, creamy grits and fried catfish. The restaurants in the Five Points South District near the University of Alabama Birmingham run the gamut from nationally-renowned high-end bistros to nondescript rib pits churning out lip-smacking barbeque. This is also Birmingham's nightlife and shopping hub, with raucous bars and clubs sharing the streets with funky boutiques and antique stores. Guests of our hotels in Birmingham can relax with a cold beer or sweet cocktail in hand before cheering on big-ticket rock bands on the small stage at WorkPlay, the city's premier live music venue.

Book a stay at our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Birmingham to experience high-octane thrills just outside the city. Tour the nearby Talladega Superspeedway and International Motorsports Museum and Hall of Fame. NASCAR races roar around the famous racetrack in April and October.

Thanks for the great stay

Say hi to Jan in the breakfast area for me. She was great. It was mainly due to her kindness that I felt at home and extended by two more days. [Less]
Pros and Cons
By Boopinlildevil
The staff here have always been very friendly and accommodating. The beds and pillows are very comfortable. Very convenient to have a microwave and refrigerator in the room. The newly renovated [More] rooms are really nice. I had stayed a couple of times while renovations were ongoing. Now that they are complete, I was surprised to come and find a really loud air conditioner and ants in the room. We were so tired, that we dealt with it instead of complaining. It was too hot to leave the air off but too loud to sleep throughout the night. [Less]
Great service
By dcsalvo
We arrived with our pet and the front desk offered a first floor room, thinking it would be better for us. That some pets don't do well with elevators. I appreciated the gesture and accepted. [More] Unfortunately, the traffic outside the room was making our pet bark. I talked to the front desk which was very understanding and made arrangements to move to another room farther away from the hallway traffic. This solved our problem and our stay and everyone else's was enjoyable. [Less]

Dogged Out Property with Excellent Staff
By IHG-LoyalistAgain
The Good/Great: * The staff at this place are excellent! Extremely accommodating and clearly care about their customers' experience - even when there's little to nothing they can do in certain [More] situations. * Front desk staff at all hours are fantastic. I went down to check out some movies after 10pm or so and was met with great assistance and friendly service. When I returned after 2am to turn one of the movies back in, I got the same wonderful service - immediately. I didn't have to wait; track anyone down; or wake anyone up. The folks here are awesome! * The location is convenient to many nearby shopping and dining establishments. But be warned - Hiway 280, which you have to get on to go anywhere can be overrun with stop & go traffic. * While the Candlewood Pantry is in a room that combines the workout room, the laundry room, and the pantry - uncommon mix - all are nicely appointed for what they are. The workout area has some great machines, free weights, and Bosi Balls. The laundry has plenty of machines. And the pantry has this excellent coffee & hot water machine that I used every day. I only wanted a cup or so each morning/evening, so it was easier to walk down and get a hot brew by the cup than to waste an entire pot of brew for only that cup. The selection of foodstuffs in the Pantry is also very good here. * The TV in the living room is on an articulating arm that allows you to extend it and swivel it as needed. This was great for me to hook up my laptop to do work using a second screen that was large enough to be used from the desk or the recliner. Great feature! The Bad: * It's a Candlewood, so it's made of wood; which means if you're not on the top floor (I was in the middle), you will hear every footstep of those above you. If you stay in Candlewoods often, you know what I mean. * This place looks as though it's been road hard and hung up wet. It definitely shows its age and apparently heavy use. The carpets are worn thin to the point of showing through in some common areas. The room I was in had the newer cabinets and bathroom vanity of the Candlewood brand, while the doors, walls and appliances were seriously tired (patched and unpatched holes in walls & doors, stains, lots of hair stuck to... well most everything, etc.) * The room cleanliness was not superb. The linens on my bed had so many pet and human fur/hair follicles on them, I honestly questioned if they'd been changed since the last guest. The bathroom towels seemed ok & clean but the bed linens, not so much. I lived with it but probably shouldn't have. * Water pressure in the shower = not so great due to the type of shower head used. * Cleaning crew on checkout day will just blast right into your room, no knocking, etc. - even when it's several hours prior to check-out time. Good thing I was working at the desk on my laptop and not getting out of the shower, etc. ;-) Yikes! The ugly: * Upon my arrival on a Thursday, the property was completely full. My room smelled like a family of enormous dogs had been living in it for a very long time. (NOTE: This belongs/relates back up top in the GREAT section: Becky at the front desk was SUPER nice and apologetic about the situation from the time when she called up to see how everything was after my check-in (a VERY nice and appreciated gesture), throughout my stay. She offered me some air freshener in a bottle like one would put in one of those plug-in units until she could maybe find me some spray like Lysol, etc. Eventually, she hooked me up with some Febreeze - and 500 extra IHG points for the trouble.) Honestly, neither air freshener did anything to even come close to containing the odor. Eventually I gave up on them as my allergies do better with dog than chemicals. Becky explained to me that I could maybe swap rooms after the weekend but not sooner, as they were at total capacity during the largest motorcycle convention of the year at Barber Motorsports Park nearby through the weekend. By Monday, I'd become used to it and had settled completely in, so I never moved. As well, I'd been turning on the AC during the day when I was away and turning it off upon my return, as the AC unit apparently still has a pack of wet Newfoundlands or Pyrenees Water Dogs living inside it. This was the main source of the odor issue but not the total source. Plus, they'd put me in an end room and I didn't want to move. There was a woman complaining of basically the same thing during one of my early trips to the front desk and they were telling her that they couldn't move her either. She (guest) said that the source of the issue was the air conditioning unit as well. Several of the units in the common hallways also were quite musty smelling - to the point that I'd hold my breath while walking past them to avoid a allergy attack. * There's only 1 AC unit in a 1-bedroom suite, with a fan high up on the wall to attempt to blow cold air into the bedroom from where the AC unit in the living room is running. That fan is OLD and incredibly noisy. Squeaking, Rattling, Buzzing - and WAKING at all hours. That was very frustrating. The speed knob on the fan is more of an adjustment of which of the annoying noises you want - buzzing? Squeaking? Rattling? A combination? Just turn the knob to decide but there is no setting for no noise/only air moving through a fan noise... except, Off, of course. But then it gets hot in the bedroom which is equally effective at keeping one awake/waking one up. Overall, smells and all, I recommend this property for one main reason: The people who work here are super nice and genuinely care about their patrons. The property is pretty dogged (pun fully intended) but it's old and wear happens. It's definitely way past due for a major refresh but that's tolerable when the staff makes it worth it to stay there. At least for me, it is. I've been in much worse places than this and the staff sucked. These folks make you feel like a regular even when it's your first visit. [Less]
Relaxing stay
By sugardumpling
I had a relaxing time at my stay. I wish the rooms were more updated, but they were comfortable. There were not many restaurants nearby. The area was a little sketchy. Had to drive a fair [More] distance to get to a decent restaurant. [Less]

Will choose this location when in the area again or when flying out of Birmingham [Less]
Easy Access to BHM
By Driving North
The hotel is not new, but was being renovated. However, the free one week airport parking and shuttle service to BHM easily overcame the renovation needed (and being done). The room was decent and [More] comfortable for a short sleep before an early flight. [Less]
