You've all heard of the "Jewel of the Nile" well this is the Jewel of the Mobile River. I have attended many functions here and the river balcony scenery is great and the interior spaces are very accomodating.

We were here for five days of meetings. The place was very clean and well run. There wouldn't be anything to see if you didn't have a meeting there, but if you were considering it for a future meeting I thing you would be pleased.
