Great Stay

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Stayed here for one night. Checking in was simple and hassle free. The room was great everything you would expect for a hotel of that caliber. The one down side is paying for parking. There is a parking lot across the street, which for me was cheaper to park in.

Anniversary overnight stay

Pros: Close restaurants
Location is excellent right in the heart of Birmingham. Room service for breakfast was assorted and delicious. We mentioned it was our anniversary and the hotel called to offer champagne and strawberries right away.

The Elegant Hotel

I stayed here after reading about this hotel in Conde Nast. I typically stay at another 4 star hotel in the area but it is nothing compared to this hotel. It is very elegant, has great service and the food is exquisite. I also love the area. Once I got to the hotel I just walked around the cute downtown and went to the movie theater, restaurants and shops. It is hard to find that in the Detroit area so I was really impressed. I already booked my next reservation.
