Holiday Inn - Mobile Downtown/Historic District
Ranked #17 of 64 Hotels in Mobile
Reviewed 27 November 2017 via mobile

There were 8 family members staying for a cruise. The hotel is great, easy to find and convenient to the cruise terminal. They provide cruise parking and a shuttle with your room if you need it. The staff was super friendly and gave us great advice about the local restaurants and good directions. I will definitely stay here again. I wish breakfast was included, but it is not.

Stayed: November 2017, travelled with family

We used this hotel for a wedding room block along with another in Mobile. The Holiday Inn was excellent. All of my guests were happy with EVERYTHING!!. The hotel front desk was very accommodating and they all had a great time. The other hotel was nothing but problems and complaints. Thanks Melissa for everything!!!!

I have absolutely nothing but good things to say about the hotel itself, rooms, or dining staff. However, the desk staff is in serious need of training. Our family booked five rooms for five couples going on a cruise together. We traveled with another family couple and were the last to arrive. We were told there was only one room left. No desire to help, no "I'm sorry, let's see what we can do" just "Well there is just one room left." Turns out a sister that arrived earlier had already checked in the couple traveling with us. The next morning, my wife and I were eating in the dining room and when she went to the rest room in the lobby, the door was blocked by a large table. She went to the desk and told them the problem, and was told, "That's the only rest room we have." No reason given for the blockage, no apology, and very curt answers. Honestly, we travel a good bit all over North and South America and I will categorically say that the desk staff (both evening and morning shifts) were the rudest I've ever experienced. The girls in the dining room were excellent however.

The lobby is beautiful! The room they need to update the carpet is old and we had to let the hot water run for about 3 mins before it got hot to take a shower. We stayed on the 16th floor. On the backside so not much of a view. We went to the restaurant on the 17th due to the pics on website looked like it was a nice romantic restaurant. Yes, it does look like the pics but it is more of a bar atmosphere. The food was not very good. It was made at the restaurant in the first floor and brought up to us via elevator by waitress in a roll around cart with the tops over your plate like in the hospital. Not very romantic .

This hotel is always friendly and customer service oriented. This is my second stay at the hotel for snooze and cruise. Contrel, our shuttle bus driver is just the best. If anyone wants to win his affections, buy him an orange juice. He loves them.

This stay, I mentioned to Randell that it would likely be more efficient if they would note the check in times of those wanting to ride to the port. He made sure we got on the first shuttle, because our check in time was very early.

The lounge on the top of the hotel boasts amazing evening views. We will surely go up there again for a night cap

Thank you Contrel, Randell, and all the staff for always making us feel so welcome. We'll be back for our next cruise in January. You are part of our cruise journey each time we sail out out of Mobile.
