The hotel is nice & clean. The front desk check-in staff were fast and friendly. Room was clean and nicely furnished. Luggage carts are @ a premium. For ease and speed of check-out we had to carry all of our stuff by hand. Bellhops were a pain to deal with. Only other issues, the walls are thin and the room doors have no hydraulic assist, so they slam extremely loud and it sounds like the rude neighbors that insist on talking in the hall are sitting on the bed next to you.
Hotel was great, room was great but valet parking needs some work. We waited for almost 10 minutes for in a line of about 8-10 cars for someone to come check our car in. The next morning we got up and went out, car was waiting when we got down but when we came back to the hotel and checked the car back in we told them we would be leaving back out in a few hours. When we came back down almost 2 hours later our car was still sitting in the same location, directly in front of the doors, and was still running.
Battle House has the air of an historic property, and after the recent rennovations and additions, the overall experience has only gotten better. Highly recommend.
I booked this hotel for my husband and I, for a two night romantic escape-from-the-kids weekend. I have to say, it was a bit of a let-down. The hotel itself is beautiful. What I did not appreciate: 1) our room was connected (ie, door between ours and another room) and 2) Valet parking only. We did hear a fair amount of noise from our neighbouring room, including kids squealing. The room itself was nice. Not as luxurious as the Monteleone in New Orleans (my all-time favourite 'cushy' hotel) but tastefully done. The beds were very comfortable. We ended up cancelling the second night.
The Battle House Renaissance Mobile Hotel and Spa was an unexpected special treat for a one-night stay between destinations on the way to a business conference with my husband. This beautiful restoration/renovation deserves particular attention and is a real bargain when compared to similar accomodations. There were two lovely wedding receptions in progress when we arrived at a late hour, with guests spilling out into the lobby and around the entrance. It was obvious why this would be a popular choice for such celebrations - and our guest room felt like a honeymoon getaway, too! The parking was easy, the staff was gracious and in-room breakfast was delicious. A very special treat - we wish we could have stayed longer and will most definitely return if we get the chance!
I lived in Mobile at one time and I wasn't a huge fan of the city. But Mobile has really worked to renew its downtown and I think the Battle House is a jewel. Beautifully redone and expanded, rich with history, great views of the port/bay, easy access off the freeway. Spa and fitness center are top notch. Spent a week here on business and would stay here again in a heartbeat.
My husband and I stayed July 4th weekend and had a wonderful experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is absolutly beautiful. The rooms are big, spacious and fabulous. The bathrooms were BIG. The atmospere very regal and refined. If you want an escape from the ordinary this is it. Have Fun!
The Battlehouse is not only a beautiful and historic site; it is a wonderful place for a romantic get-away. The rooms are luxurious, spacious, and quiet. The staff is very accommodating. Night life in downtown Mobile is quite lively. The hotel has 2 bars/restaurants of its own. It now has a spa which we did not have time to visit this trip. We will definitely be back.
The BattleHouse Hotel is excellent for spending time with that special one on a special occasion. I spent my 25th birthday weekend at the BattleHouse. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was security at the front entrance no matter what time of the day it was. Each afternoon they would provide you with the weather forecast for the following day. Each morning the newspaper was waiting when I opened the door. The bed and pillows were the most comfortable that I've ever slept on. I would highly recommend this hotel.
