Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is the best hotel in the Birmingham/Bloomfield area - the staff, the lobby, the rooms and restaurants are fabulous - the concierge was extremely helpful and went above and beyond. The beds are very comfortable and rooms are spacious and beautiful. The Rugby Grillle has high quality food and is a comfortable environment. Highly recommend.

The staff and service combine with the comfort of the room and exceptional food made this a memorable anniversary. We were surprised by chocolate strawberries and wine upon arrival. Our brunch at Rugby Grill on Sunday was perfect.

Excellent location and value for price. The rooms are extremely spacious, cozy and, and the beds are incredibly comfortable. Exceeded my expectations in all areas (starting from cleanliness). The hotel staff is also very professional and efficient, especially the porters and doorman.

We booked a room here during a local five-day power outage. The Townsend provided a beautiful crib for my 8-month old, including baby bath products, a little robe, and a rubber duckie. Thank you for making us feel special and safe during a stressful time!

I hadn't been to The Townsend Hotel for 25 years. It's still a cozy, friendly place to stay. I highly recommend The Townsend - fabulous, friendly staff. Comfy beds with down comforters, attentive staff. Everything about The Townsend is nice, and it's perfectly located in the heart of Birmingham.
