So I travel for work frequently, and when on my own, i just want to be comfortable, have good AC, Nice HOT, HIGH water pressure showers, and pleasant spots to sleep and get a little work done before/after meetings..
This place provides ALL of that..
However.. I was there for 1 night, literally 4 days after the Holiday Inn conversion to Marriott (in fact the AMEX transaction still showed Holiday inn ???? )
They are in the midst of “cleaning” this place up..
The lobby was all really new and with a very nice, new face lift..
But my room, the elevators and hallways.... they are still getting there..
it was definitely dated..
had some new paint here and there, but carpet old, lots of dings on the walls and doors etc.. and the bed was not a typical sheraton bed... but again.. for me.. on my own.. all fine..
I am giving 3 stars.. it really is maybe 3.5ish.. with the service..
A 4 or 5 in my opinion is a fairly new or fresh place with really good beds, new showers, new carpet, etc..
Hope that helps..
So, would I stay here again? probably not until I read some updates on Trip Advisor where the place has been fully refreshed...
With that said, from the sounds of it on trip advisor.. I would stay here versus the Courtyard in Hoover.. just as a reference..
I will say, the staff (Bryant in particular) was very nice, and absolutely went above and beyond to make sure I had what I needed, was ok with the room and even gave me free breakfast on top of points..
I know my status has a little to do with that (Titanium) but i was just glad he did what he could to make me comfortable and go above and beyond to try and make sure it was a good stay for me.. And it truly was.. just needs a little cleaning up for a Marriott/Sheraton property..
Frankly.. I would up the stars JUST because of the service I got, but frankly, I prefer to rate the rooms/hotel versus the staff.. even though it does make a big difference when the service is bad..
Like I said.. not a BAD place to stay, but more like a Hampton Inn or perhaps a less new Spring Hill Suites.. but has lots of potential once they refresh all of the rooms etc..

Mold growing in the bathroom and no one did anything about it. No one would call me back about it. I suffer from severe upper respiratory problems, and that is very unhealthy. I’d have repeatedly tried to speak with a manager and I have yet to be contacted. I traveled on aOctober 19th. The hotel is now called Four Points by Sheraton.
