“Another great Mardi Gras stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

This is our second year in a row staying at the Hampton Inn in beautiful downtown Mobile, Alabama. Check in was really organized, and our room was super clean with a nice view of downtown. My parents also had a great room with a view of Government Street street and the science museum. The breakfast buffet was standard Hampton Inn fare, but kicked up a notch by being really plentiful, fresh and hot, with Mardi Gras Krispy Kreme donuts. They also do benigets sometimes which are so much better than the ones at Cafe du Monde in NOLA, but not this weekend and that's OK. We can drive over for breakfast soon because we were craving them. We so love doing at least one weekend in Mobile during Mardi Gras, since we live not too far away in Pensacola. The staff at the Hampton Inn are awesome, from the friendly lady who checked us in, to the security guards stationed at the door off Royal Street, to the housekeepers, and everyone we encountered. Same friendly experience as last year. We will be booking again for next year for the 3rd weekend of Mardi Gras, and may do a few weekends over the next year as a special treat. FYI, we also always try to do one weekend in NOLA durin Mardi Gras, and we love carnival there, but Mobile's Mardi Gras is special to us because the folks in Mobile are so nice, the throws at the parades are so much better than in NOLA and the floats in most parades (MOT especially) are just as good or better than some in NOLA, and the Hampton Inn makes the weekend perfect. Thanks guys and see you soon!

Room Tip: During Mardi Gras, get there EARLY in the day, as near the start of check-in time as possible, in or...

Wow. Perfect location in the old town center, blocks from anything you would want to see. Cheaper than the other brand across the street, and not as gaudy or showy. The building fits into the area, but is extremely well-kept, clean beyond belief, with all of the amenities. Super-friendly staff, convenient parking with in-and-out privileges, breakfast included. If you are a Hilton Honors member, wifi is included too. And the suites on each floor are palatial... Mine had a thirty-foot long balcony overlooking the street below, and enough floor space inside to bowl a few frames. Not that I did. I'm just saying. Wow.

I can't say enough about this Hotel. Location-right in the middle of historic area; NO security issues at all; Hospital clean ;all areas;lobby hallways elevators and rooms. Breakfast was just enough to get started with staff people very eager to serve and help. Room service done by 12 noon each of the three days we were there!!!
Here's the best part. I recovering from 2 major surgeries last JUNE. I did
enquire about a handicapped room when i originally booked, none were available. When we checked in I casually asked about it again. The entire from Desk then proceeded to do everyhting possible for this change. Less than 10 minutes later we were changed to a Handicap Room. WE then had a great time in their wonderful Mardi Gras celebration. Th whole town gets an "attaboy" and should be congrtaulated on their beautiful celebration and parades. There's still time to go there till Fat Tuesday. This is a family oriented party!
Mobile congrats WELL DONE!!!
WE will return again! Hampton Inns are THE cleanest operation and beds are fresh every NITE!

Pros
-GREAT Location
-AWESOME customer service
-VERY CLEAN rooms and public areas
-LARGE Rooms
-COMFORTABLE beds

Cons
-Pipes made rattling noise from 5am-8am each morning. Think this problem is isolated to room 212 as others in our group had no problem with noise from the pipes.
-WIFI speed a little slow

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience at Hampton Inn & Suites Mobile/Downtown! We are very happy to hear our team took such good care of you and you found the amenities of the hotel to your liking. We haven’t been able to identify the reason for the noise from pipes. It has been on our radar and we’re unsure if it’s an isolated event as we have not heard any additional concerns from guests. However, we certainly appreciate you bringing this to our attention because every guest may not provide that feedback resulting in a missed opportunity to provide a resolution. Hope to see you return soon!

Stayed here for New Years and me and my family had fun and felt safe. Will be back! Room was spacious with a great view. Good selection on the breakfast items because they have a little more then the typical Hampton Inn.

We stayed here for the Conde Cavaliers Mardi Gras Parade and Ball! The room was huge and we had a nice view overlooking the parade route. Check In was easy, and the front desk clerks were nice. We had a room on the second floor, with 2 queens. There was also a pull out bed and chair in room. Plenty of room for us to get ready for ball. I would highly reccomend for anyone looking to stay in the downtown Mobile area. The breakfast bar was huge, eggs, toast, sausage, doughnuts, bagels, cereal.... the list just goes on! The only thing I would reccomend would be more waste backets in the room.

Our team was excited to hear that you had a wonderful stay during the 2013 Mardi Gras event. It is a very busy time for our hotel and we are pleased that you found our team to be friendly and your room to be spacious and comfortable for your large party. We are very proud of the variety of our complimentary On the House Breakfast and appreciate the positive feedback. We will also share your suggestion for larger waste baskets in the room with the Hampton brand. When you do have a large group of people staying in a room for an event like Mardi Gras we can certainly see the need. Our Hampton Team looks forward to having you as our guest again for future events in Downtown Mobile. We are aware that you had other lodging options in the downtown area, and we are thankful that you chose the Hampton Inn & Suites Mobile/Downtown Historic District.
