Let me start by any hotel that has a Peloton bike in the gym gets a big thumbs up from me. I am not sure why more hotels don't have these. The problem with theirs was that the seat post was worn out and so the seat wouldn't stay up. Hint: a lot of people are using it! Beyond that the gym was good as most Westins are.

Let me start by any hotel that has a Peloton bike in the gym gets a big thumbs up from me. I am not sure why more hotels don't have these. The problem with theirs was that the seat post was worn out and so the seat wouldn't stay up. Hint: a lot of people are using it! Beyond that the gym was good as most Westins are. The hotel was solid but not over the top. I will say valet and check-in staff were friendly and efficient - typical southern hospitality. There are several restaurants/bars in the immediate block and TopGolf is a short walk - maybe 2 blocks. I heard they had an airport shuttle though we didn't take it. The hotel was only 10 minutes from airport though at midnight, when we arrived, was a bit of a sketchy drive I must say as you drive through a pretty run down industrial area between the airport and the hotel. Housekeeping cleaned the room even though we made the green choice but whatever. Not a big deal. Housekeeping was friendly. All in all it was a great stay. Read less

I was traveling for business and landed at 8 am. Michela Carter greeted me and it couldn’t have been a better experience. She told me my room wasn’t quite ready but that was expected at 8 am. I told her I didn’t need the specific room they were preparing for me and she found me one immediately. She saw everything on my account and wished me a happy birthday. She offered me a breakfast voucher and drink voucher. She was extremely pleasant and seemed to check every box after reviewing my profile. She truly gets customer service and when people are traveling, the perks and pleasantries are a nice welcome in my opinion. Great job Michela. Thank you, Bryan Camilli Read less

I have stayed at the Westin Birmingham multiple times and always have incredible service. On this trip, I want to particularly thank Brian W...he was beyond accommodating and as I told the staff, he made me feel like a VIP! I had a bag delivered for me for work that was critical and he personally made sure it was safe and secure and then readily available when I arrived. He greeted me personally with my bag, let me know a package had arrived for me and was beyond helpful to make sure my stay was second to none. I have stayed at many 5 star resorts around the world and if there were more employees like Brian W we would all be lucky!! Thank you Brian, I hope you are recognized as employee of the year because you deserve it and I so appreciate you! Read less

Not a 4 star hotel by any means. The room I had must have had an old mattress. It did not have the standard pillow top from Westin. ( I know what they should be, I travel 1 to 2 nights a week). The sheets and pillow cases had soooo much starch. And they were wrinkled by the irons so felt bumpy. The comforter was picked and worn. One of the towels… Read more
Not a 4 star hotel by any means. The room I had must have had an old mattress. It did not have the standard pillow top from Westin. ( I know what they should be, I travel 1 to 2 nights a week). The sheets and pillow cases had soooo much starch. And they were wrinkled by the irons so felt bumpy. The comforter was picked and worn. One of the towels was the nice fluffy towel I expected. The other was dingy and not soft at all. The room was clean. The staff was all very nice. The highlight for me was breakfast at Todd English downstairs. I had the French toast and bacon. It was amazing!!!!! Read less
