One night stay, couldn't get the room as cool as I would prefer and the hallways aren't air conditioned, but overall it worked for us. The elevator is annoyingly slow but it was fine. Overall, cool looking hotel walking distance to shopping and restaurants.
Had to make a quick decision about a place to stay in Birmingham because of medical issues. Researched several travel sites and found La Quinta on Expedia for a very reasonable price. When we arrived, we were very pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness, recent renovations and space. We will definitely stay there again when in Birmingham.
Homewood, a suburb of Birmingham, offers endless shopping opportunities, from a central business district that has been thriving since the 1920s to the convenient, indoor Colonial Brookwood Village. From his vantage point atop Red Mountain, Vulcan, the world's largest cast-iron statue, overlooks the city of Homewood and offers stunning views of the greater Birmingham metro area from Vulcan Park.
