“Beautiful Hotel, great location, amazing hospitality but limited food options.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

As a crew member of Carnival Triumph, I stayed here once our ship reached Mobile. the staff of the Holiday Inn welcomed us with open arms. They went above and beyond the call of duty to make us feel welcome and good after the experience that we had. The rooms are spacious and beautiful. The staff was amazing. The bar on the top floor has a pleasant atmosphere and a great view of the city (although I am not a fan of the smoking). It was an overall great experience but there were limited food options. Breakfast was expensive and you did not get a lot for your money. The hotel does not have room service and everything in Mobile closes early. I went to try to find some place to eat at 10pm and there were only bars (no food) open at that time.

Overall, I enjoyed myself and the Hotel Staff was incredible!

As a crew member on the Carnival Triumph I had the privilege of staying here when our ship reached Mobile, Alabama. The manager Mauro Garino has gone above and beyond to make us feel at home, she has been more than fabulous and I can't give thanks enough for the hospitality we have received from the staff of the hotel. The food is wonderful, location is next to all the main areas, the hotel itself is lovely with spacious beds and all the mod cons you would ever need in a hotel room. The bar on the top floor has amazing views of the city and is trendy and comfortable to relax in. This hotel is the best hotel I have ever stayed in and the friendly staff can't do enough to ensure your comfort and happiness. I will be back and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who has the privilege of being able to stay here. Thanks again to the fabulous staff!

Stayed there Feb 9 thru 11 2013, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday of Joe Cain Day weekend during Mardi Gras.
We had reserved the Club/Board Room on the 17th floor for a Joe Cain parading organization gathering and the attached guest room for ourselves. Upon arriving, someone had already been assigned to the attached guest room we reserved, but the problem was taken care of immediately by the ladies at the front desk. A big thank you to Lindsey and Erin for their kindness and professionalism in handling that situation.
Prior to the parade, the ladies in the parading organization began to arrive, portable clothes racks had been provided for hanging up of their parade outfits, ice was brought to the room for the soon to follow party, the ladies were all happy and impressed by the courtesy shown by the hotel staff. Just prior to parade time the ladies all came down to the 2nd level balcony for their pre-parade costume picture session, then proceeded to the parade route. Just as the Joe Cain Day parade began, the forecasted rain began to fall, the ladies in the parading group walk the parade route, and were sure to be soaked by the time they returned. We requested that additional towels be brought to the Club Room. This task was taken care of by Angela in Sales and Jeff in Operations. The ladies in the group wish to give a big salute to them for providing this service.
As for the rooms, our guest room was clean and comfortable, and the Club Room was neat, orderly and well prepared. We look forward to returning to the Holiday Inn again next year for the Joe Cain Day weekend.
Once again to Lindsey, Erin, Angela, and Jeff, thanks for a GREAT JOB.

We stayed here on Sunday Feb 3 for a Mardi Gras ball. We actually booked here last minute after a horrible stay at another hotel across the street. The rooms were very large. Beds were SO comfortable! Room had mini fridge & microwave. We had a great view of Government street to watch the parade. Had no problems with outside noise (which is always a problem during Mardi Gras) Will definitely stay here again for Mardi Gras!

The staff was the nicest, friendliest ever. The rooms had refridgerator and microwave. Plenty of TV channels. Beautiful lobby. Mauro Garino introduced herself - she was great and took good care of us. We arrived after parade and the streets had already been cleaned. Try the bread pudding in the restaraunt - its the best,plus I even got to meet the cheif who preparred it.

Stayed last weekend for Mardi Gras , the room and view was great. We walked downstairs and caught the parade and then we were off to our ball . The young lady at the front desk i believe her name was Lindsay was so nice and accommodating and the security team was also helping get us to where we needed be . We had a great stay and will b back next year kudos to the staff for helping.
