The Townsend Hotel
The Townsend Hotel is a Forbes 4-Star and AAA 4-Diamond hotel, as well as a perennial favorite on the Condé Nast top hotels list. Poshbrood stayed in a luxury suite with two small children while attending a wedding. The hotel lobby and rooms are beautiful and the staff outgoing and friendly. We stayed in a luxury suite that at 509 feet had a living room separated by French doors with a pullout couch for the kids.
The hotel is in an optimal location to explore Birmingham which is brimming with cafes and boutiques. Families can easily walk to shops, coffee shops, restaurants. Don’t miss Barnum Park, only three blocks from the hotel at the intersection of Pierce and Frank Streets. There are sports fields, walking paths, gardens and play structures to help you tire out the little ones.
The hotel arranged a great sitter for us during the wedding and car service to and from the Detroit airport. Service was seamless. We also enjoyed the hotel's afternoon tea en famille left our charming mini-break very reluctantly. Rates begin at $249/night and they offer some pet-friendly rooms.
