Rated 3 out of 5 by SPG1 Good hotel in downtown location but too hectic and noisy
When we arrived the hotel was literally overflowing with teens attending a conference and as such everywhere we went there were waits, be it for an elevator or table at the restaurant. As well, the noise level was high although the teens themselves were polite and well behaved. A staff member noted that this happened regularly (i.e. large number of attendees for an event) and as such, having a quiet stay here does not seem possible. On the plus side, the Club Lounge provided excellent appetizers as well as wine and beer for a fee.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Abott75 This hotel is conveniently located.
My spouse attended a four day conference that was located at the hotel and the nearby Birmingham Museum of Art. I was free to explore the museum and other local attractions. In front of the hotel is a trolley which runs every 20 minutes on a route to the five points area which has great restaurants. For seniors this is 10 cents one way. Also for seniors there is an all day pass which includes the entire transit system for $1.50.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nichole1414 WORST service I have ever received
This was one of the worst hotel stays that I have ever had. I travel weekly and stay in hotels about 3 days a week and by far the worst customer service I have EVER had at a hotel. There was a convention going on with tons of teenagers. At about 10pm on my second night I could not take the partying in the hallways any longer. I knew that I needed to get a good night sleep because I had to wake up at 4am to get to the airport to go to my next city. I went to the front desk to ask to be moved. The woman asked what my problem was. (I will tell you what MY problem is) I let her know about the kids running the halls and she proceeded to tell me that there were kids everywhere. I myself have worked in a hotel and know that it is possible to get things calm if needed. She finally moved me. When I went to my "NEW" room I walked in to find someone else in the room. SERIOUSLY! I went back down and luckily she was not there. The next person I spoke to was very nice and got me into the next room. It was a little quieter BUT the lock on my door did not work so I worried all night about someone else getting moved into my room. Kids were running in the halls and knocking on doors until about 2am. Needless to say I did not get any sleep. I paid $179 to sleep in a hotel room and never was able to sleep because the hotel staff could not get their rowdy guests under control. Unacceptable! When checking out the woman at the front desk did not even say a word when I was telling her how horrible my stay was. She just stood there with a blank stare and never said ONE SINGLE WORD. I have to say this was the WORST customer service that I have EVER had in my life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GG603 Excellent Staff
I just spent a month in Birmingham for work and was lucky enough to be put in the Sheraton. Nice King Suite with a king size bed, microwave, refrigerator, sink and a small countertop.
Check in was flawless. Amber checked me in, she had excellent Customer Service skills. Pleasant, friendly and made sure I was happy with my room. She was a nice start to my month long stay.
The Shuttle bus drivers were wonderful as they drove me to and from work everyday. Joseph, Soloman, Festus, Will, Eddie, and Johnny made my commute to and from work a treat. I had some good conversations! Excellent Customer Service skills! I have stayed at other hotels for a month before and I was never impressed or felt it was worthy mentioning the Shuttle drivers. This time, they are worthy of being mentioned. It was always a pleasure having them drive me to and from the Airport for work. I only wish I could have brought them home to continue to drive me to and from work!
I choose to use the Green Choice so I only had my room cleaned a few times. The few times it was cleaned it was impeccable when I returned to my room, Knowing I was long term she made sure to leave a few extra coffees and such (per my request). When the Housekeeping woman would see me in the hallway she always checked on me and asked me if I needed any clean towels and other things. She was always kind and gave me more coffee, water, anything I needed with her pleasant smile. I was on the 12th floor, Room 1254.
Every day when I came downstairs in the Lobby I was greeted by a happy Staff member. Very nice to see Employees so willing and happy to provide excellent Customer Service.
Although I did not get to see Ms. Shryl very often, when I did see she was always very pleasant. She checked me out today and made sure to check that I was getting all of my points. Again excellent Customer Service.
The location is good. Art Museum is right around the one corner and down the other way restaurants. If you are into walking there are a few cafes a good walking mile and worth the exercise. The DART is also right around the corner if you wanted to use it to get around town.
Thank you Birmingham Sheraton for making my month long stay a very pleasant one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Steve1457 Top notch staff
From the greeting by the valet parking attendant, check in hostess, room service, house cleaning to the security staff throughout the facility I received courteous, proffecional service. My room was 1457, and was very comfortable. My only complaint is the noises during the night. I don't know if it was plumbing sounds or what but it wasn't bad enough to keep me awake. Thanks to ALL of the staff.

We decided to have breakfast in the hotel atrium. Our server Helen was simply wonderful she greeted us with a smile and because of the service she provided to us. My husband and I both decided to have breakfast at the atrium the next morning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DWR61 Sheraton's Food Options are Nice
I stayed at this Sheraton on business, and found the sports bar and the breakfast buffet (two different venues) to have very tasty food. The sports bar seemed a tad overpriced (chicken quesadillas $11.00), but the quesadillas were really good. The breakfast buffet was awesome - had just about anything anyone could reasonable want, and the food was also very good. Also, each morning, different folks took care of me at the buffet (seating me, asking about my coffee/juice preferences, checking for refills or to go's), and they were all the friendliest/nicest folks you could ever find (really!). I'd stay there again just to see their friendly faces at breakfast.
Also, nearby are some other dining options in the Uptown complex - those were great for night-time options.

I waited 20 minutes to check in and now I'm waiting an hour for room service. The room is nice and the staff for room service and check-in were very polite and nice, but everything is just so slow. Valet parking man was great, quick and friendly, parking is $22 for the night. There isn't a whole lot around restaurant wise so I'm really stuck waiting an hour, it's noon so I can't image there's too many guests that are in their room at this time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by flyspg Noisy room, cold room
As a platinum guest, I was given a room (not a suite) next to the elevator. The noise is there all days and nights.
Also the heater in my room is not working very well, can be only heated to 72 degree.
The Club Lounge is too far away, I need to change elevators to get there.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Sheraton. From the registration to check-in to my overnight stay could not have been better. The room was most comfortable and the staff, throughout the Sheraton, were more than accommodating. I attend many conferences, but my stay at the Sheraton was excellent.

This is not a low budget hotel . Yet the hotel offers no amenities. Nothing and no WiFi. In fact, you block the wifi that comes with my celluar plan. I am a part of 2 groups that are loyal to the Sheraton, Alabama A&M and the 9th Episcopal District AMEChurch but the Sheraton is not loyal to us.

Rated 4 out of 5 by msalto Room Odor
Have stayed here numerous times and enjoy the facilities. This time we experienced a sewer gas odor in our room upon returning at night. Asked housekeeping, who was in the hallway at the time, if any of the other surrounding rooms had the same issue. She came into the room and verified the odor and told me I could call down to the front desk. We were much to tired wait for someone to resolve the issue so we just tolerated the smell for the night.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DMA2014 Issue with Accounting
We are a company that had (5) guest rooms at the hotel. Despite having a credit card on file for room and tax charges, my guest was charged the entire amount to her personal credit card. It has taken me (5) PHONE CALLS and my own time and energy to get this bill reversed. I guess leaving a message with information and a phone number numerous times is IGNORED at this hotel. You can guarantee that we will not return with our business. YOu may thank Kimerlin or Kimberly in your accounting office for her lack of personal service and follow through for the lost business in the future.

This was my worst stay at this property. I was not greeted for being a loyal member and I was assigned a handicap room for some unknown reason. It took way too long to get checked in considering the number of guests to staff ratio waiting to check-in. My room was never cleaned even after I called requesting to have my room cleaned.
