    historic hotel

    by

    the original battle house hotel was built on the site of general andrew jackson's headquarters during the war of 1812. the battle house was built in 1852 and hosted some famous guests such as henry clay, stephen a. douglas, millard fillmore, and jefferson davis. the battle house was destroyed by fire in 1905 and the current hotel was rebuilt in 1908. recently this property was bought by the marriott corporation and has been completely renovated. since this hotel is owned by marriott you can expect all of the amenities of this better chain. for those interested in history and southern culture the battle house is an excellent place to stay in downtown mobile.

    Directions: downtown.

    Mobile's Best Hotel

    by

    We stay here during Mardi Gras. Got 2 nights this coming year for $339 per night- worth it!
    This place is romantic! We had a second honeymoon; there is something about this place. We had made reservations almost 6 months before and were exhausted from too much Mardi Grasing. We had a great time.

    Make sure you request the Historic part of the hotel. Bathrooms are so nice with separate tub and shower, all black marbled with yellow fleur de lis wallpaper. Huge rooms with separate sitting area. Really a suite for a regular room price!

    But the lobby is the real star! Go to the second floor to try the "whispering arches". You can hear your partner whispering. If you get in the elevator and go to 8th floor, you can see over Mobile skyline and all the trees,, etc.

    Instead of eating in the Trellis Room, try the bar- it's faster in there. I have to say I'm not wild about the food. It's very cosmopolitan type of food.

    Unique Quality: They are supposed to get a spa and pool by about now , I think.
    24 hour room service.
    On the Mardi Gras route ,but you can still get to Dauphin Street easily even during a parade.

    Stained glass roof in lobby- WOW!!!! Also in the trellis room!!!

    Close to some cute shops on Dauphin: Areas and Bienville Books
    Also good restaurant right there on corner, Cafe something.

    Also close to Exploreum, Museum of Mobile, and Fort Conde (free information center). Head south on Royal- they are on Royal just past Government Street.

    Directions: In between St. Francis Street and Dauphin St. Head east on Government Street(coming from West Mobile or I-65) and turn LEFT on Royal STreet.

by doug48 about the trellis room

the trellis room is located in the historic battle house hotel on north royal street in downtown mobile. the trellis room specializes in northern italian cuisine. the trellis room has a contemporary decor and the dress code is business casual. the trellis room is one of the better restaurants in mobile.

elegant

by doug48 about royal street tavern

the royal street tavern is located in the historic battle house hotel. this restaurant and bar is a great place to meet with business associates in downtown mobile. the tavern's refined decor caters to a more older clientelle than the younger bars on nearby dauphin street. a great place to have a relaxing drink after work in downtown. business casual.

More Bars for the 30-45 crowd

by DG4ever

Here are some more of my favorites. And let me just say that I also have to have decent food to eat, too. Also, service is terrible in Mobile everywhere. We are in the midst of a severe shortage of labor in all those areas. I think they are doing the best they can, so relax and still give a decent tip.

Liquid- on Dauphin Street by Wintzell's. Wonderful Sushi, awesome atmosphere, and all my favorite alternative music from the 80's played not too loudly. If you have a group , you'll need to make reservations. They do have a courtyard. Try the Sante Fe roll. There is also Samuri J's on Bienville Sq. which I've heard is also good, but I'm loyal to Liquid.

Battle House's new bar (street level) on Royal Street. Well-heeled locals. They serve food from the Trellis Room, but it is pricey. It is beautifully served even if most of us don't know what we are ordering! Tuscan Bean Soup is good although small ($9! & that's the least expensive). Maybe you should just drink here.

Hero's is a good spot with outside seating overlooking beautiful Cathedral Square (Dauphin & Jackson Street). Sandwiches, etc.

Drayton Place is long gone, replaced by Cafe Royal..Haven't been yet.

In the Oakleigh Garden District:
Callaghan's Irish Club- have best burgers in town & I like their Grilled Cheese sandwiches. Special atmosphere here, corner of Marine/Charleston (about 3 blocks from Government St.)Sunday nights they have music. A lot of locals go here, but you will be welcome here. Look for my favorite photo on the wall: the one with two well-dressed older ladies with pearls in the 60's out for a ride in their boat. My grandmother did stuff like that.

Guidos (corner of GEORGE/Savannah- 3 blocks from Government St.) has great food (Italian with Coast Creole influences) and now has a bar up in the attic. Again, dress up. But you'll see people in all kinds of things.
