Birmingham’s first dual-branded hotel is set to open in the heart of the Parkside District. Located one block from Railroad Park, at the corner of 2nd Avenue South and 17th Street, the hotel combines a Hilton Garden Inn with Hilton’s extended-stay Home2Suites in one footprint – the first of its kind in the nation.
The two properties will share a check-in point and office space, as well as a pool and a fitness center. The full hotel will offer 210 rooms along with a restaurant and bar.
REV Birmingham worked with the Mayor’s Office of Economic Development to coordinate incentives for LBA Properties, the hotel developer. Home2Suites is accepting reservations for arrivals beginning Friday, September 15. Hilton Garden Inn will accept arrivals beginning Wednesday, September 27.
