ISO 14001

ISO 14001 is an internationally accepted standard that outlines how to put an effective environmental management system in place. It is designed to help businesses remain commercially successful without overlooking environmental responsibilities, such as:

• Improve their environmental performance constantly
• Comply with local and national regulations and other requirements subscribed
• Prevent water, air and ground pollution hazards
• Control and optimise water and energy consumption
• Promote waste recycling and recovery
• Raise environmental awareness among employees and train them to adopt good practices in their activity

ISO 50001

ISO 50001 is based on the management system model of continual improvement also used for other well-known standards such as ISO 9001 or ISO 14001. This makes it easier for organizations to integrate energy management into their overall efforts to improve quality and environmental management.

ISO 50001 provides a framework of requirements for organizations to:
- Develop a policy for more efficient use of energy
- Fix targets and objectives to meet the policy
- Use data to better understand and make decisions about energy use
- Measure the results
- Review how well the policy works, and
- Continually improve energy management.

The Homewood Suites in Birmingham is set in a very attractive area of Hoover. The facility offers free breakfast and some finger food in the evenings as part of the booking. Both options alone make the booking at this location a worthwhile booking. The suites themselves are well designed and spacious in their main bedroom area. Sofa sleepers are equipped in each room providing additional sleeping options. The kitchenette includes a full refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, and sink. I've not found noise to be an issue other than the remote-controlled fan makes some odd noises during the night after being on for some time. The beds are a little firm with 3 different pillow options. Try out all three and you will find a good one. I complain about that frequently dealing with other hotels. No issue here. Alarm clock is fully featured with an aux input. Directv is the TV provider and each bedroom and the picture quality is actually quite good. Wifi is sufficient. Overall I enjoyed my stay and plan on doing it again if back in the area.

Quiet, easy to get to. Breakfast was substantial. Room was actually cold when arrived, didn't have to touch the thermostat. Only stayed one night, but would have been comfortable for a while.

Bernard at the front desk is simply AMAZING. BUT.... The hotel itself is a little run down to be a Hilton. Our shower was not overly clean...the elevator floor was FILTHY as was the carpeting in the hallways. I expect better of Hilton... I would probably not stay here again

The common areas of this hotel seem very nice. Breakfast and dinner are served. I did not stay overnight in a room, but I would definitely give it a try. Seems like a good place to stay for a long trip.

Front desk clerk was super friendly and helpful. No indoor pool though. Full hot breakfast from 7am to 10am. Only setback was that the halls were a maze and if you leave your room it takes a cool 7 minutes to get to the parking lot.

Was really overcrowded when I visited in July 2017. Swimming pool was closed and green and sludge filled. Pretty gross. Wet towels were in my closet and housekeeping wasn't the best. Filled out a survey and shared pretty supposed to hit comments with management while I was there but no attempt to apologize or fix the experience was offered. Will not stay here again even though it is just two miles away from a work location I visit frequently

The hotel is very nice. The rooms are fairly spacious for an extended stay hotel. The hotel has a fitness room with a couple treadmills and weights. The outdoor recreation area includes a pool with a pool house, a putt putt green, a basketball court and some outdoor sitting areas. The complimentary breakfast is very nice. There is a nightly hospitality reception Monday thru Thursday that includes drinks and a light meal. The hotel staff is very helpful and accommodating. I would recommend staying here.

Wow. Such a great crisp clean hotel. I would go out of my way to stay here rather than the more expensive hotels closer in by just a couple miles. Loved the remote control ceiling fan above the comfortable bed. Highly recommend.
