Reviewed 17 October 2017

My boyfriend and I stayed here one gameday weekend and this is literally the best hotel in Tuscaloosa. It was quiet and relaxing. The bed and pillows were comfy. We couldn't hear the people next to us or above us. I have no complaints and I will definitely be staying again. SERIOUSLY, DON'T BOOK ANY OTHER HOTEL OTHER THAN CAPSTONE!! WELL WORTH THE MONEY!!

Room Tip: any room is best! All rooms have blackout curtains!

We were pleasantly surprised by the amenities, service and location of this hotel. It has so much character and they've maintained it to the highest standards of a high quality chain hotel. The lobby is simple yet gorgeous!

There's a nice pool area to sit out side under large old magnolia (I think) trees. The rooms had everything we needed and the bathrooms were extremely clean and had been renovated with quality upgrades.

We've been staying many hotels lately and the beds were so comfy! High quality linens and towels.

The staff answered all of our questions and concerns
The main reason we booked this hotel was it's proximity to the campus but we will plan to stay here every time we visit our daughter at University of Alabama.

I'm happy to hear we could exceed your expectations during your visit to UA's campus! Especially since you mentioned you're no stranger to hotels, it means a lot to hear we could make such an impression. We're looking forward to having you stay with us again during your future visits! Roll Tide!

We always enjoy staying at the Capstone. It is very convenient and the staff are always very accommodating and helpful. I only wish they had more rooms available so that we could stay there for the duration of our trip every time we travel there.

After driving 4 hours, we arrived at the published check-in time (3:00 pm) with a guaranteed reservation, in time for a 6:00 pm kickoff. Desk clerk told us there were no available rooms, and the visiting team would not be leaving their rooms until 4:00 pm. He said that we could wait for one of those to be cleaned, but we would probably miss the pregame activities, and likely kickoff too. We put our luggage back in the car, and went to get something to eat. We returned as soon as the game was over, and were finally allowed to check in at 10:00 pm--to a room that felt like an oven. Someone had left the thermostat all the way up. Just awful after all afternoon and evening in the 90 degree heat and humidity. Even the hallway was cooler, so we left the door open until the AC kicked in! For a $500/night room, they let us know about the $1.50 charge for the safe, but failed to let us know we would not be allowed to freshen up in our room before the game. A morning or afternoon kickoff I can understand, but this is unconscionable for a night game. We'll stay elsewhere next time.

I want to personally apologize for this miscommunication regarding your reservation. As fellow 'Bama fans, we know how important it is for you to have the game day experience you deserve from start to finish, and I regret that we couldn't help give that to you. Additionally, I'm sorry to hear about the temperature upon your arrival. I appreciate you bringing it to my attention, and I'll make sure to communicate with my team about the importance of double checking that everything is ready for the next guests.

If you have any further concerns, please don't hesitate to get in touch. I do hope you'll consider giving us another opportunity to show you the game day visit you should've received.

Kind regards,
Matt Hood, Director of Guest Services

Stayed one night to break a journey. The hotel is very smart, with enormous well decorated rooms. The main reception corridor is particularly impressive. The bed was very comfortable and all was clean. The bar and restaurant in the hotel were good and well priced, with very helpful staff. The location is in the middle of the university campus so not much immediately near, but apparently there are bars and restaurants within a 15 minute walk - we didn't need to leave because we ate a very good meal in the hotel restaurant.
