Get in touch with history at Mobile’s Battle House Hotel. The Battle House is not only historic but it is located within walking distance to most of the must-see attractions. The current building, and second hotel on the site, was built in 1908 on the site where Andrew Jackson had his military headquarters during the War of 1812. In the lobby, above a plush, circular banquette, is a beautiful domed Tiffany skylight. The ornate molding has the portraits in the corners of the four leaders who ruled over Mobile: Louis XIV of France, George III of England, Ferdinand V of Spain, and George Washington.
The Four Diamond hotel has been a favorite of entertainment celebrities, sports legends, a king, and a president since 1852. It is where President Woodrow Wilson in 1913 who announced that the United States would never again wage a war of aggression! If only it were true.
The lacy wrought iron balcony is the perfect place to watch the moon pie (that’s right – a moon pie) drop on New Years Eve or watch the Mardi Gras parade and toss moon pies. Let the fun begin!
Guests can dine at the hotel’s legendary Trellis Room, Mobile's only Four Diamond restaurant and relax at their state-of-the-art spa, swim in their outdoor pool or get in a game of tennis. Or, try out their rooftop driving range. The rooms are plush and the service great – what more could anyone want?
