Hyatt Place Birmingham/Inverness – Rooms with a View

For my recent, very quick trip to Birmingham, Alabama, I was blessed to stay in accommodations provided at the Hyatt Place Birmingham/Inverness. A spacious, comfortable mid-range hotel, Hyatt Place is a great choice for business travelers with their own transportation and families visiting the area who need a bit more space.

Closest Catholic Church:

Nearby Catholic sites:

  • The Cathedral of  St. Paul, built in 1862, is situated in Birmingham’s historic downtown area.
  • The television studios of EWTN — the Eternal Word Television Network — are located in Irondale, Alabama, a short drive from Birmingham. Plan to make a visit to the small EWTN chapel, to enjoy the studio tour, and perhaps to even take in a live taping. The studio grounds also has a lovely gift and book shop. If you have more time, consider a day trip to Our Lady of the Angels Monastery.

Stay here when you…

…come to Birmingham on business, with a car. (Check out my recent Destination report on Birmingham.) The hotel is ten miles from downtown and Birmingham does not seem to have much in the way of public transit. That being said, the hotel is on a lovely site and is terrific for families or those in town on business.

What’s awesome?

  • The rooms at the Hyatt Place are generous in both style and amenities. Along with two double beds, my hotel had an oversized sitting area that could have slept additional children, and a great desk/work area.
  • Breakfast! Load up on three cooked entrees along with beautiful fresh fruit and some pretty awesome coffee! Grab a complimentary Wall Street Journal and stay a while.
  • The staff at the Hyatt Place is oozing with Southern charm. This team answered every one of my “needs” cheerfully and expeditiously. I felt thoroughly pampered.
  • The grounds – on site there is a pool and exercise room, but you might want to head outdoors for your walk. Just a stone’s throw away is a lovely lake with a short walking trail. Benches along the trail, lakeside, offer a perfect view and a great vantage point for morning prayer or a break with a good book.
