3/5 Okay

Business traveller, Travelled with partner
Disliked: Amenities
I understand this is a Historical location and I like water as to why I wanted to stay at this hotel and have the Riverview window but the atmosphere brought on a very depression feeling and I was a little upset to see the ceiling fan had a stack of dust that should the room doesn't get a sturdy cleaning.

What a gorgeous property, beautifully maintained, and strategically located on the bluff above the Alabama River next to the Edmund Pettus Bridge. I could stay here forever!

2/5 Poor

Travelled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Outside of the bar and restaurant staff, the service was horrible. The housekeeping staff and Ms. Howe refused to clean our room despite repeated requests to do so. We had to request towels, and when we checked out, we left a pile of dirty towels. Housekeeping never came to the room to retrieve the used towels. Jessica and the bar and restaurant staff provided impeccable service.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
We liked location to Pettus Bridge. Sorry hotel is located in such a "war torn" area. Considering location, the property nicely stood out. Please consider adding small refrigerators and microwaves in each room. 219 can use better lighting, working phone and carpet needed shampooing. The handicap room has steps. Kind of defeats the purpose.
