The hotel

One of those spots everyone wants to stay, The Westin Birmingham’s location makes it a popular pitstop for both business travellers and leisure and pleasure seekers – that’s thanks to its direct access to Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex and its walkable distance from downtown favourites like Birmingham Museum of Art and Alabama Sports Hall of Fame. Being part of the Westin family, it’s not just about location here, and it also hosts Birmingham’s edition of WestinWORKOUT® Fitness Studio, the heated outdoor Terrace Pool, and dining delights which range from the fresh brews, pastries, and cocktails of Octane Coffee Bar to the comfort classics and prime meats menu of Todd English P.U.B.

We stayed here last weekend and it was great. The room rate was very reasonable, the staff was very friendly, the location was perfect. The swimming pool is a little small but served its purpose. The gym was closed but that was to be expected with COVID-19. All in all I would have no issues recommending this hotel.

This hotel is beautiful. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. There is complimentary coffee in the lobby and a restaurant. The hotel is situated next to other restaurants and a coffee shop. There is also a little food shop with candy and chips in the lobby. The pool is small, but is on the roof, which is neat. There is also a large seating area… Read more

Love this hotel, but lot going on in the area with limited parking... nice that there are paths to get into the BJCC without having to go outside. Nice and quiet. New interstate near by and things like a lot of trendy restaurants and top golf near by. But be aware they are building a new arena across the street so take that into consideration.

I honestly have never had better service from a bellman at any hotel than what this fine gentlemen gave me. First, he greeted me at the door with a warm smile, then offered to take my luggage to the room, and even walked me over to the BJCC to show me where the skywalks were so I didn’t get lost that night getting to the event. This young man will go far in life with the type of service he provides to guests. I truly hope his manager sees this and knows he is AWESOME! Thanks for everything Brian. You rock!
