“Nice Hotel in Good Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

This is a nice three star hotel. Its primary asset is its location overlooking Mobile Bay, though the shipyards are not particularly scenic. The staff of the hotel were very welcoming and friendly. The rooms were comfortable, but not spacious. The bed was very comfortable. The ceilings are a bit low for a luxury hotel and the carpet seemed cheap for what bills itself as one of the best hotels in town. The food was better than average for a hotel, though not spectacular.

If you have to stay in Mobile, this hotel is a fine place to spend a few nights.

Room Tip: Apparently, there are a number of way to get discounted rooms. Book early and look for bargain prici...

I haven't been here since it bacame a Renaissance, but I expected more. It's no match for the Battle House Renaissance a block away. My room was small and very poorly lit. The work desk did not even have a lamp on it, and at night you could not see what you were doing. The escalator was out of order the entire time I was there, and that made the elevators crowded.
There was a large convention going on, and the lobby bar was tragically understaffed resulting in poor service.

Easy check in. Lots of parking. Room service was great (excellent wings!) Close to all things downtown in Mobile! Easy on and off Interstate 10. FYI - the pool doesnt get much sun in the afternoon, so if you want to get some sun go in the morning!

This is a first class hotel. We stayed for a Navy ship reunion. Accomodations, food and service was excellent. The location is downtown on the river with numerous restaurants in walking distance. The hotel has a skywalk to the convention center and the Austal shipyard is just across the river. We got to watch the launching of the USNS Choctaw County JHSV 2 right from our hotel room and, in the distance, you can see the superstructure of the battleship USS Alabama. Southern hospitality was evident everywhere we went and if you are going to Mobile you will enjoy this hotel.

Was there for 5 nights on business. The staff was VERY friendly and the rooms were quite adiquate. We got an UNHEARD OF $96 a night! the bar was standard and the food wasn't special but there are a number of great little places within walking distance. You can also go over to the Battlehouse Marriott and charge stuff to your room at the Riverview. The pool was substandard for a hotel of this cabiler.

Room Tip: Get a corner room on a high-floor.

I stayed at the Riverview for 90 days on business and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The hotel has great decor in the lobby, meeting areas and other public areas. The rooms are well-appointed and the beds are superb. The rooms do have complimentary Wi-Fi, a mini-refrigerator, but unfortunately, no microwave. The staff was very friendly and helpful during my entire stay. The hotel is adjacent to the convention center and is walking distance to the waterfront, IMAX Theater, museums, numerous restaurants and other places in the downtown area. They have an excellent fitness center that is adjacent to the outdoor pool.

Other than the Renaissance Battle House Hotel, this is one of my favorite hotels in downtown Mobile.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper level on the river side of the building. You'll enjoy watching all...

A large hotel in the heart of Mobile. Very nice staff and easy check in. Room was large with HDTV and comfortable king bed. Bathroom was large and shower was well appointed although the shower curtain bar has seen better days and made it tough to keep water inside the shower.

Biggest problem was the AC. While it cooled the room it was incredibly loud unless I turned it off. Made sleeping very difficult.

All in all, not bad but could be better.

Also, it is within walking distance of many downtown restaurants and bars.
