A chic retreat
Created as a mini oasis for its guests, the Valley Hotel Homewood Birmingham, Curio Collection by Hilton, is a
129-room upscale boutique property located in trendy downtown Homewood, Alabama, just 10 minutes outside of Birmingham. Opened in February, 2021, the Valley Hotel features perfectly appointed guestrooms that provide a fresh color palette and mimic the natural environment of Homewood and its proximity to Red Mountain, while crisp wood tones and linen accents recall classic Southern hospitality and charm. This destination designed, full-service hotel houses three top-notch food and beverage options: Ironwood Kitchen + Cocktails (upscale dining), The Terrace Bar (craft beer, cocktails, and a fireplace), and The Valley Coffee Co. (specialty coffees, gourmet sandwiches, and freshly baked pastries). This luxury lifestyle property offers a welcoming place to gather with friends and family.
Custom-made for Homewood
By partnering with design firm Looney & Associates, and purchaser Bray Whaler, the Bryan Ashley team was able to bring to life this Southern city’s creative culture. Each spacious room features local art, a cushy chaise sofa, picture frame-styled TV wall panel, as well as wood-paneled headboards with integrated nightstands; all of which provide a comfortable residential feel. The custom dresser is combined with the minibar cabinet and showcases beautiful walnut burl drawers with dark bronze pulls and legs. Moving outside of the guestroom, the elevator console table features a dark stained oak body and tapered legs, inlaid leather drawer fronts with decorative ring hardware, and a protective glass top. For those wanting the ultimate accommodations, the presidential suite delights with a headboard designed with faceted tapered metal posts and an upholstered panel. The nightstands’ dimensional, decorative drawer fronts, X-shaped metal base, and smoky glass top are paired perfectly with the contemporary headboard. Completing the suite, a rectangular table with stylish curved ends, tapered square wood legs, and a recessed apron provide the perfect setting for in-room dining.
Sweet home Alabama
Centrally located in northern Alabama, Homewood is a suburb of Birmingham and has a population of just over 25,000. The main street in Homewood features old-style shopping including boutique clothing stores, home decor shops, and high-end antique galleries. For the foodies visiting the area, start your day off at Hero Doughnuts and Buns and grab yourself a cereal topped hand punched doughnut with a nitro cold brew. When lunchtime comes around, visit Jim 'n Nick's Bar-B-Q where they are passionate about serving a diverse, made-from-scratch menu; and why there are no microwaves, freezers, or shortcuts in their restaurant. End your day with a divine Italian meal at Gianmarco’s, which is owned and operated by a team of father and sons. Not only do they serve authentic Italian dishes, they also feature hand-crafted daily specials ranging from grouper with andouille gumbo, to prime cut ribeyes, to braised veal ossobuco. Buon appetito!
