My wife and I stayed at this hotel on Saturday night October 27, 2012. We live in Mobile but wanted to have a night on the town and not have to drive home late. The best thing about this hotel is the view. Beautiful view of Mobile Bay and the river. Large picture window in each room. The rooms are very large and it is very close to downtown. The lounge up on the top floor is very nice and they even had a costume party the night we were there. The clerk at check in was very nice and helpful. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were just throw type pillows. I don't know why guests can't have full pillows. That might be the trend but they were not comfortable at all. To get hot water we had to let it run a full five minutes before the water got hot enough to shower or shave. There is not a separate closet you had to hang clothes in the bathroom. There also was not a suitcase rack to put a suitcase on. The television reception for local stations (the major networks) was horrible, so snowy that it was unwatchable. Cable channels were fine. Would I stay here again, probably, but only if there isn't a room availabe at another upscale downtown hotel.
