The Terminal Hotel operated from about 1909 to at least 1928 at 2528 5th Avenue North, directly across 26th Street from the Birmingham Terminal Station.

When the hotel opened, it was operated by a Mr Robertson who reported that despite his misgivings about prohibition, which went into effect locally in 1908, operating a hotel without a saloon was still good business. In 1910 the hotel offered members of the Locomotive Engineers Union attending the annual Southeastern Territory meeting a rate of 75 cents per room on the European plan.
