My mom and I took a 3 day girls trip to Mobile and stayed in the Battle House. The lobby is spectacular and the check-in service was great. I was a little hesitant to stay here because the only pictures I had seen were of the lobby, but the room did not disappoint. In fact, it was probably the largest hotel room I've ever stayed in at this price point. We had a two queen bed room on the third floor which had ample space on all sides of the bed as well as a seating area with a queen anne style chair and ottoman and a desk. The bathroom was HUGE and beautiful with a soaker tub and separate shower. We had the breakfast buffet one morning in the Trellis Room which was delicious. We also went to the Joe Cain Cafe and got delicious adult beverages that we brought up to the beautiful roof top terrace. Very nice space up there. On our final night, we stopped in at the Royal Street Tavern for drinks. We loved the atmosphere and service so much we ended up staying for dinner. There was a fabulous pianist and saxophone player and the food was superb. You have to try the creme cheese dip! We also visited the spa once for an hour long massage. My mom was very happy with hers, mine was okay, but a little rough. However, the Quiet Room totally made up for the massage itself. It's a dim lit room with a floor to ceiling fire pit...you have to see this thing! There's also a large hot tub in there, but we didn't get in. Overall, everything from check-in to valet to extra services was outstanding and we will be staying there again.
Stayed one night with family on the way to Orange Beach. Hotel is spectacular, the rooftop pool and fitness area are very nice. We did have an issue with the room not being clean but the staff was able to help get us moved and took care of breakfast and parking for us. The breakfast buffet was superb.
The entire hotel is restored to its former beauty. We toured each floor. and were so impressed with the cleanliness and the friendliness of all of the employees. We will be staying there again next year for our anniversary!
This hotel is in the centre of Mobile and is easy to find - just head for the tallest building. Staff were polite but not artificially friendly. The main reception hall is big and tidy. It features a number of architectual styles. Breakfast featured as much food as you could wish for but the price varied daily for the same meal. My room had no openable windows so no chance of fresh air. Room service was good but in the five days I stayed, one day got skipped. The Tavern Bar next to the hotel is a good place to relax at night and on a couple of times it had a piano player. Hotel staff were helpful in arranging taxis, putting back check-out to match flights and picking up printouts. The hotel is not expensive and certainly worth a visit if you are in Mobile. Pity about the windows.
We spent 3 nights in Mobile at the Battle House. When you walk in it looks wonderful and you think it's going to be a great stay, but things were not all good for us.
We had reserved two rooms with king size beds, when we got there they told us there were none available. We settled for two rooms with 2 double beds. It didn't take us long to realize that the thermostat in our room didn't work. We were freezing and all we could do was turn it off and then back on later. The toilet rocked back and forth when you sat on it, not just the seat, the whole toilet. You could tell that it had been like that for awhile since the grout around the bottom on the floor was all coming lose. It felt like it was going to tip over. We reported it so I hope it was fixed before they put someone else in there. We called the next morning and asked to be moved and they tried to get us to just stay there while they sent maintenance. I asked if there were any king bed rooms available and when they said yes I told them we wanted to change rooms. They sent a bellman up to help, which was nice. Our relatives moved also since there was another king size room available. The worst part of the stay was that the entire hotel was freezing all the time. It was 100 degrees outside but it was better than being in the lobby. I don't know how the people who work there can stand it. Service for breakfast was awful. They only had one women on duty who even tried to take care of anyone. The hostess out front kept wandering off, and the people who were supposed to be getting coffee and water would just walk through the room and out the other side. The only server in the room was trying to take care of about 40 people, and seating others when the hostess was no where to be found. I felt bad for her.
In short we were disappointed with our stay. It's beautiful, but not what we expected.
