Folks at desk were very polite and professional. Did not try breakfast but saw people eating. Seems like a lively bar in the evening. Location is handy. Great coffee shop down Street. Name is O'Henry's.

Thank you for sharing your experience. We agree that O'Henry's is a great coffee shop. The next time you stay with us you should try another one within walking distance of our location called Octane. Safe travels.

We had just stayed at an aloft hotel in Texas the night before so we booked this space on our trip across country. The hotel is pet friendly and advertises dog beds, bowls, and treats, but we got nothing. The hotel is very quiet which prevents dogs from barking inside rooms! The hotel itself is great, but the location isn't...

I booked this hotel because as a budget, DIY bride I needed to be close to my wedding venue the day of my wedding. I needed to be close because I had to have time to completely decorate my venue and still have time to get ready and check out by 4pm. I was told, upon my first inquiry, that...

I'm typically a Marriott guy but the Marriott properties in the area are a big let down. The hotel is pretty new and stylish. It feels a little like a "Diet W" because of the funky decor. If you don't get there early enough you will probably have a hard town finding the roof of the parking deck. The beds...

We were really looking forward to this stay and had specifically picked this quaint area of Birmingham for its safety and restaurants. When we arrived, we were informed our room was one of 3 leaking and they couldn't accommodate us and reimbursed us for our room and they paid for a room in downtown (where we didn't want to be!)...

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with our hotel on TripAdvisor. We just completed a rooms and lobby renovation and just like any renovation, you never know what you are going to find behind a wall. We do not ever want to relocate a guest, but at times it is necessary. We attempt to find the...

Traveled from out-of-town and secured multiple rooms (~8 room) for guest. Hotel located within 3 miles of wedding venue (Donnelly House). Everyone enjoyed their stay and the accommodations. Hotel has a nice open lobby where people good gather/hang out before events. Bar area adjacent to lobby/common area which allowed for central gathering area after hours also including a pool table...

A Loft is a reasonably priced modern minimalist hotel chain and although they all have a similar appearance not all of them are well run or in the best area of town! Homewood is a nice suburban area of Birmingham and has a nice youthful vibe! This hotel had a much better staff than one we stayed at a couple...

This is our second stay at an Aloft. Our first was NOLA. And for the second time we were thoroughly pleased. The front desk person was nice and helpful. Check in was quick. We had a small dog and there is a nice area of grass across the street. Great area of town. Very quiet with restaurants. Room was clean...

When I stayed here last time, I commented that the people made the place; everyone who works here is one-notch nicer than you might expect hotel staff to be. That continues to be true. I also noted that the scuffed up hallways made the place look remarkably dingy. Surprise! Even as I stayed here, they were repapering the halls. So...
