Battle House Renaissance Mobile

Mobile, Alabama

The hotel

Past meets present. Southern charm meets modern city slickness. Fine dining meets casual tavern. A member of ‘Historic Hotels of America’ with classic luxuries like marble bathrooms, or unique features like the lobby’s whispering arch. The outside spaces are equally well-dressed, with its pool patio accessorised with potted greenery and a hot tub for added relaxation. The downtown Mobile address puts you near plenty of eateries, but why dine out when the hotel’s home to the district’s only AAA Four Diamond restaurant, The Trellis Room, as well as casual pizza joint Joe Cain Café, and the martinis and light bites of Royal Street Tavern?

I stayed here for a dance convention this weekend. The hotel is going through renovations but that didn't matter because my experience was excellent. The venue garage is fine, but I found plenty of street parking for free. Friday parking on the street is $3 for 2 hours I believe and after 5pm it is free until Monday. So it was so easy to find… Read more
I stayed here for a dance convention this weekend. The hotel is going through renovations but that didn't matter because my experience was excellent. The venue garage is fine, but I found plenty of street parking for free. Friday parking on the street is $3 for 2 hours I believe and after 5pm it is free until Monday. So it was so easy to find street parking within walking distance. The fitness center was moved to an area used for meetings etc, but it was fine and small. The room was clean and fantastic. It had all the amenities possible for a suite, with dishwasher, ice machine, Koreg coffee machine, fridge, microwave, all in the room! Lastly, the bridge connecting the convention center was so ideal. Read less

Stayed for one short night and would have loved to stay longer. First class with friendly staff. Southern hospitality at its best. Both Joe’s and the Trellis offered excellent food and service. We loved Olga and Jennifer at the Trellis. Would definitely stay here again.

I stayed at the battle house for one night with my wife. Nice location downtown, close to everything. If it’s cool outside you can walk to pretty much everything. The hotel has a lot of history, the hotel was established in 1852. The room was very clean, all though the wall paper was peeling in the bathroom other than very nice. I think spa and… Read more
I stayed at the battle house for one night with my wife. Nice location downtown, close to everything. If it’s cool outside you can walk to pretty much everything. The hotel has a lot of history, the hotel was established in 1852. The room was very clean, all though the wall paper was peeling in the bathroom other than very nice. I think spa and pool area is the nicest thing about this hotel. It’s located on the roof over looking the Mobile bay and dry docks. I liked everything about this hotel except the parking, they only have Valet available. I personally don’t want anyone in my car while we’re going through a pandemic. The valets had masks but they didn’t all have them on their face which is the reason why I didn’t want to valet my car. So I had to park two blocks down at a public parking garage. I would like to come back and spend a long weekend at some point. Also there is a Starbucks and few other places to eat right across the street. Read less

I was disappointed in my experience. The hotel rooms need updating. The bathroom grout is moldy and I had broken tiles in my shower.

I was disappointed in my experience. The hotel rooms need updating. The bathroom grout is moldy and I had broken tiles in my shower. I was disappointed that the restaurants weren’t open and they were not offering room service due to Covid. I’ve been staying in hotels and room service has been offered. The small Joe Cain restaurant was open with a very limited menu. There is no onsite self parking. The staff was friendly, but I will just stay somewhere closer to meetings next time. Read less
