Located in the center of downtown Birmingham in a 1909 building formerly known as the Empire, Elyton embraces the old while celebrating modernization. During a stay in the 16-story hotel, guests can look around and see the rapid growth of downtown Birmingham. Views of the city can be enjoyed from a removed position at the rooftop bar, Moon Shine. Happy Hours ranging from Craft Beer Tuesdays to Foodie Fridays offer a fun (& discounted!) activity during your escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. For those looking for more of a meal, Elyton’s restaurant, the Yard, is sure to please. An atmosphere of southern hospitality meets a taste of global cuisine at the Yard. Somewhere in between the Fried Chicken and Lamb Kafta, guests are sure to find a dish to match their appetite. If you dare, brunch on a Belgium Chocolate Omelet while enjoying your stay. Social and private events are a specialty of the Elyton; From catered weddings in the Event Space to a rooftop birthday-bash or a Chef’s Tasting at the Yard, Elyton offers an array of specialized, unique experiences.
“I love my Elyton room! It’s spacious, extremely lit since it’s on a corner with two walls of windows, and very comfortable. The Moonshine Roof Bar afforded me excellent views of the city. Breakfast was fabulous. I made the right choice. Pick the Elyton and you will too.” -Michael H.
“I loved the juxtaposition of the old and modern decor. Bathrooms are unique, and rooftop bar is great!” -Neva S.
“The hotel was absolutely beautiful. To make things even better was that the hotel staff was so nice and accommodating. The rooms were very large. The decor was phenomenal. We would definitely come back for a visit! Very impressed!” -Bethany O.
On your way to the rooftop bar, be sure to look up! A glass-paneled roof on the elevator offers visitors a unique glimpse into the skeleton of the 16-story, historic building.
