We were in Birmingham Michigan for a wedding last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is great and within walking distance to everything. The staff was outstanding and couldn't have been nicer. It probably could use a little updating but it was fine and very clean.

The hotel is well-located and staffed by kind and efficient people. I agree about Charmaine. She's a gem, and her breakfasts are good way to start the day. The rooms are bit tired and could stand to be freshened. There is not a true closet, rather an open niche with rod and hangers. Water pressure could have been stronger. Birmingham's...

I'm frequently coming to Birmingham, MI because of work. I love the hospitality of this Holiday Inn Express. Charmaine serves a great breakfast! Walking distance to downtown too. Clean and comfortable. Slow elevator and rooms next to it can hear the "ding" of the door opening. Don't get a room that ends with 14 or 12 as they are near...

The room was clean. However, the toilet seat did not stay up and as a man it was very inconvenient to use the bathroom when I urinated.
