A distinguished member of the Historic Hotels of America, stay at this lovingly restored hotel to experience American stately decadence at its finest. Marble bathrooms, grand pianos, Crystal Ballrooms and extravagant arched lobby ceilings are met with superb amenities which include a full-service day spa, a modern fitness centre, and a spacious outdoor pool. Gourmet indulgence is of course not forgotten, with the hotel being home to four restaurants including The Trellis Room, Mobile’s only AAA Four Diamond restaurant. We can smell fresh Gulf seafood with white wine sauce…
Located in the heart of historic downtown Mobile, just steps away from the city’s port, The Battle House is the ideal location from which to explore the Mobile Convention Centre and other top attractions that this brilliant city has to offer – and it’s only 25 minutes from the nearest airport. Take to the leafy tree-lined streets and take your pick between the Historic Oakleigh District, the Gulf Coast Exploreum & Imax, the Carnival Museum, USS Alabama, the Museum of Mobile, the Senior Bowl Museum, and serene Fort Conde.
Each of the 238 elegantly designed guest rooms and suites retains its original Southern charm, yet features modern details like luxury bedding, complimentary Wi-Fi and 42-inch LCD TVs. What better way to kick back than in your very own marbled bath tub, soaking up the lavish ambiance and incomparable standard of luxury that is on offer.
WHY WE LIKE IT
Standing on the site of an old military headquarters set up by Andrew Jackson during the war of 1812, and also serving as a Confederate hospital during the Civil War, this is a hotel steeped in fascinating history and nostalgia. Let’s not forget the little modern upgrade of a 10,000 sq. ft. spa oasis boasting a full salon, eight treatment rooms and a Zen-like fire pit.
