Have been staying here for years. Had a very large group and from the front desk to the bartenders.... It was FIRST CLASS!!! We started working on this months ago and they delivered at every turn. The check in process was simplified and they added some nice food and music to the lobby during peak times. Hotel managers always had... More

I didn't know there was still an option for an entire hotel to have smoking rooms. The moment you walk in, you immediately become a butt in the ashtray that is the Holiday Inn. It was wrong of me to assume there was no smoking, but for $200+/night, I should come out of here smelling like roses. I will NEVER... More

Heres my story: I have stayed at the Admiral Semmes (its next door to this Holiday Inn) Hotel in Mobile the weekend of the Mobile Marathon for the last 6 years. It has alway been adequate, nothing fancy, but decent. Unfortunately the last two years it has plummeted, both in horrible service, and general filthiness. The employees have become a... More

Staying anywhere downtown for Mardi Gras is always a hassle. Not here! When you walk in the lobby, you just get the feeling of how nice the hotel is. The employees go above and beyond to make your stay a happy one. The rooms are large, we stayed in a King room on the fifth floor and the view was... More

We get a hotel downtown every year for Mardi Gras and out of several others, we prefer this one. The beds are comfy. The rooms are large. The place is clean. The elevators haven't broken down during our stays. The restaurant downstairs is crowded, but sufficient. Nothing too fancy food-wise, but typical hotel restaurant fare. We've never had any problems... More

My buddy and I stayed here January 19th for a concert. We couldn't have been more impressed with this hotel. Everything was very clean and the beds were super comfortable. We didn't want to get up when it was time to check out. The bar on the 17th floor is also a must visit. The view is incredible.

Stayed here for 3 nights from Jan 2-5 for the GoDaddy Bowl game. We were pleasantly surprised to be placed on the 16th floor overlooking the bay. Absolutely beautiful view. The staff: The front desk staff was great. Extremely friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Answered any and all questions quickly and accurately. The room: Ok, so there really wasn't a problem...

My wife and I stayed in this hotel during the GoDaddy Bowl. It was a popular choice for many and we weren't disappointed. While we did not eat in the hotel restaurant, we did take advantage of the close proximity to many local restaurants. Our room was clean and quiet. Housekeeping did a good job of cleaning during our stay.... More
