The hotel is also close to numerous corporate offices, the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame, the University of Alabama-Birmingham and Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport (BHM).

“We are thrilled to partner with the city of Birmingham and Jefferson County to open yet another Starwood property in the heart of Birmingham, solidifying our leadership position in this dynamic market,” said Serge Rivera, Co-President of the Americas for Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. “On track to open its 200 th hotel in 2013, Westin is one of the most sought-after brands for new, upscale lifestyle developments in key markets across the Americas.”
