Just got back from a 4 day stay and I have to say we were surprised. You are greeted at the gate by George who was so happy and infectious, you couldn't help but smile and laugh right back. He set the tone for our stay. We were given a bay marine facing room with a great view, but no... More

I stayed here for a conference. This is actually a nice property on Mobile Bay. It has been called the “Grand Hotel” since 1847. All the predecessor hotels here burned to the ground but they kept rebuilding. The current iteration (mainly the main building) was built in the 1940’s and does have some charm. The rest of the facility was... More

My wife and children had a great time at the Grand Hotel and this is the third time we have visited in the last 5 years. Although the rooms aren't anything special, it's the activities and facilities that we come from. We enjoyed the pool, kayaking, cannon firing and afternoon tea. I'm sure we'll be back again.

Great staff welcome gate (George) great greeter and friendly. We love coming here for a couple days for relaxing. I enjoy the fishing from their grounds. We use they bikes to take a ride in the mornings. They have kayaks for use but in very poor condition and did not use. Fairhope has lots of choices for dinning. Their pool... More

This place is a wonderful getaway for families or the conference traveler. The property is lush, even in the winter months, and the food is wonderful. Fairhope is a quick trip away-great shopping and restaurants. The Grand offers history and celebrates its heritage in the South. Friendly staff and southern hospitality. The spa is excellent!

I had a business meeting at this hotel for a few days and everything was just ok. I'm sure years ago this old hotel was the place to be. The old lady still has plenty of character but really needs a great deal of upgrading. The lobby, rooms, and bar areas are dated and worn. Although the bar area just... More

This is the third time I have stayed at this hotel. It is spread out and I have stayed in three different buildings. The rooms are nice and spacious. The food, especially the breakfast buffet is delicious! The pool is so much fun even if you're an adult! The wait staff is great and very eager to please. The gym... More

We go to the Grand every other year for Thanksgiving. It is the highlight of the year for us! You MUST stay in the old section! The proximity to tea time, Buckys Lounge, and it's central location are amazing. The workout facilities are great and we always enjoy the indoor pool. Walking the grounds is always a highlight.

The Grand Hotel is truly a must see while in town. The sunset from Bucky's Birdcage while sipping a berry medley mojito is bliss. The fire pits are pleasant even in the summer after the sun has gone down.

Ah, the romance! Giant live oaks, a boardwalk on the bay, beautifully landscaped grounds, and a central building that predates the Civil War. You can't out-atmosphere this place, but you do want to go in the less busy seasons. Plan to valet, as parking adjacent to rooms is scarce, and you won't really need your car once you're in. The...
