“Romantic Birthday Weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

We live in Destin, but my parents live in Gulf Shores soooo wanted to drop the kids off and do a quick getaway for the weekend for my birthday. This hotel is a vacation in itself!! We never had to leave the whole weekend. We were warmly greeted by the Valets and check in was a breeze. The lady at checkin informed us of a free comedy show in one of the lounges which sounded really exciting. After checking out the room, which was AMAZING!! We went to the Tavern and had martinis and appetizers. The 99 cent dip is divine and we highly recommend the apple pepper shrimp...so good! We paid a little extra for a King Corner suite, which was located on the 4th floor and had a shared balcony ----although the other room I don't think was rented because it was like a private balcony. The tub was my favorite and had amble room for two adults and was 3 feet deep. The Aveda complementary bath products were really nice. We decided to just spend the whole weekend relaxing and ordered a rooms service a couple of time which was amazing. Will definately be back!!!

This is one of my favorite hotels, noteworthy for its history and charm, in addition to its stellar fitness area and rooftop pool. I had the chance to try their lounge, The Royal Street Tavern on my recent visit. The decor is great - lots of wood, eclectic fixtures - stylish without being pretentious. A nice place to enjoy one of their many bourbons and sample the food. I had their pub chips (excellent) and their wings (also fantastic). I'd put these wings up against anybody's. This place feels like a home away from home which is what a good hotel bar should be.

We always stay here when we visit mobile, AL. The room in the historic section was wonderful and the pool deck exceptional. The location is close to a number of museums, shopping, and other activities.

We stayed at the Battle House in Mobile over a long weekend during Mardi Gras. The lobby is gorgeous, the rooms are very clean and comfortable, and the staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. An employee stopped her work to take my husband and our toddler over to the "whisper arch" on the second floor, where you can whisper to someone across the room and your voice is carried by the arch as though you were speaking to them through a speaker. Very cool! The walls did seem thin, and we heard doors slamming down the hall VERY loudly in our room. I think this might be more of a problem in some hallway rooms, but in our corner room, the bed was far away from the hall, so the noise wasn't as troubling. We could hear our neighbors through the bathroom wall loud and clear, but it didn't bother us much.

Room Tip: The corner king room had a small balcony and was somewhat insulated from the hallway noise.

I stayed for a mere 10 hours. However, the hotel was beautiful and impressive. My room was one of the largest king rooms I've ever experienced and the bathroom was truly luxurious. The staff went out of their way to help me. The use of the business center was essential for my purposes and it was well equipped with computers and a good printer. I would love to stay longer!

Room Tip: I received a free upgrade to a king corner - the view was awesome and the room was amazing!

This is a lovely hotel with a lot of history behind the building. The hotel staff were pleasant and helpful. The room had adequate space and the bathroom was great with its large stand up shower and granite fixtures. Again, the view from the window was not great and we didn't think to ask about the view before we were shown to our room. The bell boy was very thorough and got us ice too. The room was clean and a good size, but it missed the "wow" factor that I was expecting after seeing the lobby!! The hotel is nicely located in the downtown area and close to the historic district.

Room Tip: If a view from the window in your room is important, stipulate that when you make reservations.

Last weekend spent two nights at BH in Mobile. Desk clerk was aware that I was very tired after a long flight, so she booked me on the 8th floor. What a nice place! The room was gigantic and the bathroom had both a glass standup shower and a big tub. The 8th floor in the older part is quieter than lower floors. Had a great time in Mobile- Mardi Gras and Senior Bowl. That town was hopping.

Room Tip: 8th floor is the place to stay in the old part. Very very nice.
