The hotel is a fairly stylish hotel located a few blocks from Dauphin St where there are alot of bars, shops, etc. Check in was easy, the staff were helpful but seem kinda stuffy and uptight. The room itself is your standard chain hotel stuff but done very well. The shower and toilet are in a small room apart from... More

twice we were awaken during the night with fire alarms, false alarms someone at the hotel bar pulling the alarms, once was at 12 am and 2 am. Hotel staff was not nice about the inconvenience or reassuring when the firemen arrived. Shady characters from Skyview Lounge on top floor parading through lobby at night. The rooms were nice and...

The Holiday Inn iDowntown Mobile is in the heart of the city, bars, shopping and resturants all within walking distance. Maura has always done an exceptional job in taking care of her guest and her staff is the best! I would recommend staying here to receive exceptional hospitality!

First off, I made the mistake of booking through priceline.com. In the very small print it says special requests cannot be guaranteed. One of those mentioned is smoking/non-smoking rooms. This hotel only has one smoking floor and priceline booked me on that floor in a smoking room. I have two children with asthma and when priceline refused to help I... More

Rico and Rodney had a wonderful time at this hotel. They were treated like kings. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the hotel serves great food. Make sure you try the gumbo, it's delicious.

The hotel served the purpose for a conference at the convention center. About a two-thirds mile walk this hotel, I was not able to get into the main conference hotel. A decent location, the staff were friendly and the rooms were okay. The bed was comfortable. The rest of the furniture and amenities were a bit subpar.

My mom and I stayed here for about a week and had an awesome stay. If you're looking for a hotel with a central location this is it. Dauphin street, which is filled with cute stores and restaurants (Spot of tea!) is a 3 minute walk away so you have plenty of dining options. Our room was wonderful (see tip... More

The location is great for downtown mobile and quick access to restaurants and other activities. The hotel itself was in excellent condition and the staff was very attentive and helpful as well. The rooms were rather outdated with some carpet stains and not so great bedding, other than that the hotel was good all around. It also has an on-site... More

If you want to experience historic downtown Mobile, you can't go wrong with the Holiday Inn Downtown on Governor's Street. Literally next door to the Mobile Mardi Gras Museum, the hotel is only a block from the wonderful shops, restaurants, and night life of Dauphin Street. For travelers who plan to cross the bay to the USS Alabama or head... More
