The Westin is part of a master plan to create the Uptown Entertainment District at the existing Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex, home to an area, performing arts theaters, signature dining, 220,000 s.f. of meeting space, and the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame. In concert with the city’s vision for the entertainment district, The hotel’s bold design leaves a lasting impression of luxury, sophistication, and excitement. This property comprises 294 guest rooms, including 7 suites, a beautifully appointed rooftop pool, lobby restaurant, coffee shop, and lease restaurant. All of these spaces were designed with a commitment to memorable, modern style.
Hotels and conference centers present unusual challenges in the area of energy and water efficiency. The Rabun-led design team focused sustained attention on these important issues, leading to LEED Silver Certification.
