“Nicely Situated Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2011

A nice Holiday Inn ideally situated for downtown Mobile. The room was spacious and clean. Quick and easy check in. Although parking was limited there was still quite a lot for a downtown hotel and it was free. Kids weren't to impressed with the pool - too small and cold. The view from the rooftop lounge was good but would have been nicer if they'd cleaned the windows. Overall no complaints and I would certainly recommend to anyone visiting Mobile.

Driving from Florida to Texas I stopped here for one night. Good location for downtown Mobile and the bars around Cathedral Square.

Easy to get there. Just a few blocks out of the tunnel. Free parking for elites and free Internet. Comfortable beds and quiet rooms.

In the end, nothing spectacular good or bad, which is a good thing for a Holiday Inn.

My husband and I have stayed in the hotel twice. The first visit was alright, but parking was an issue because their was a prom going on downstairs. The second visit was not good. We checked in and I thought things would be great. A young lady named Easter checked us in and was very courteous. The problems started as we went upstairs. There was a terrible smoke odor when we opened our door. Thenfront desk nicely changed our room and even gave us a ticket for free breakfasts for the inconvenience. In our new room floor twelve things were going well until around 10:45 p.m. We came back from a beautiful symphony experience to hear loud music in our room. It quieted down around 11:30 and I went to sleep. Around 12:00, I started hearing the music even louder than before. By 12:30 I could stand no more and called the front desk. We were told it was unusual to hear the music from the lounge on the twelfth floor. The only remedy they could do was to move our rooms. Did they really expect me to pack up my belongings, get dressed, and go bcd downstairs to get a new room at 12:30 because the music was so loud in the lounge? I will not return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Stay away from the top floors on the weekend.

I can highly recommend the two ladies Miss Shay and Ms. Easter, who attended my checking in and service requirements such as guidance to restaurants in town, bar and room service, directions to shopping facilities etc., in a very friendly and professional manner.

This hotel was great in all categories. Beautiful interiors, very nice rooms, great view of downtown Mobile, AWESOME staff and service! They have a great restuarant and a very nice bar on the 17th floor with a 360 view of the city. From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed! Mobile is usually just a stop for a break before we get to the beach, but who knew this place had so much to offer! The hotel is right in the middle of Mobiles unique and lively downtown. Its a small verision of New Orleans...Beautiful parks, artists, wonderful dining, entertainment of all kinds and live music filling the streets. I definatly think if you are traveling to anywhere around Mobile, AL YOU MUST STAY at the Holiday Inn in the Downtown Historic district...You will love the people and the place and will not want to go home!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the downtown area!
