Originally opened in 1925, the Redmont Hotel in Birmingham, Alabama re-opened and was completely renovated in 2016 for future generations of visitors to enjoy. The oldest hotel in the city, it was ahead of its time with private baths, chilled water, and ceiling fans to protect from the Southern humidity.
Celebrities like Hank Williams and Kareem Abdul-Jabar stayed here and in 1983, the building was named a landmark by the National Register of Historic Places. Now a part of Hilton’s Curio Collection, guests can enjoy the benefits of being a part of a chain and membership program with the unique experiences of a boutique hotel.
