    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 944 reviewsTripAdvisor (944)
    Free WiFi

    What stands out most about this Renaissance hotel compared to other Mobile, Alabama, properties is its downtown location. From the Battle House you can easily walk to the Arthur R. Outlaw Convention Center, Bienville Square and scenic Cooper Riverside Park. The hotel's 238 rooms and suites are outfitted in blue, red and gold decor, marble-clad bathrooms and LCD TVs. Recent guests loved strolling through the classic interiors of the hotel as well as the impeccable service. And if the weather is right, travelers highly recommend a dip at the rooftop pool. For dining, make sure to head to The Trellis Room restaurant, Mobile's only AAA Four Diamond restaurant. Marriott Bonvoy members can earn or apply points here.

    Picturesquely perched along Alabama's Mobile Bay, the Grand Hotel Marriott Resort certainly is grand — from the plush bedding in the 405 guest rooms and suites to the two golf courses on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail to the sumptuous treatments offered at the colossal spa. Previous guests recommend booking a room in the spa building for optimum romance. When you're not relaxing in your room, use one of the Marriott's bikes or take a leisurely jog around the property's fitness trail.

    Grand Bohemian Hotel Mountain Brook, Autograph Collection

    #3 in Best Hotels in Alabama
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 172 reviewsTripAdvisor (172)
    Free WiFi

    This funky Autograph Collection outpost is perfect for those looking for a little something extra while staying in Birmingham, Alabama. Past guests loved the playful interiors of the hotel, from the velvety furnishings found within the guest rooms to the whimsical wingback chairs that populate the rooftop terrace. And luckily, previous visitors found their experiences to be just as delightful as the hotel's looks. Many were quite complimentary of the staff and the property's offerings, including the "out of this world" breakfast and brunch offered at the on-site restaurant, Habitat Feed & Social. The hotel also has a spa, a fitness center and a small outdoor pool, and all rooms come equipped with creature comforts like flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi access, bathrobes and minifridges. Plus, members of the Marriott Bonvoy program can earn or redeem points here for extra perks. The only downside to this Marriott property (for some travelers) is its location. To reach most of Birmingham's top attractions, guests will need to bring their own set of wheels. But visitors who don't feel like driving 4 miles northwest to downtown will find two sights – the Birmingham Botanical Gardens and the Birmingham Zoo – within walking distance.

    Free WiFi

    Overlooking the Tennessee River, the Marriott Shoals Hotel & Spa is described by recent guests as a pleasant surprise in the northern Alabama town of Florence. Guests say Southern hospitality is alive and well here, noting that everyone — from the front desk staff to the restaurant servers — is polite and friendly. The hotel offers two distinct dining venues, the 360 Grille (which offers revolving 360-degree views of the river) and the more casual Swampers Bar and Grill that features live music in the evenings. When it's time to bed down, guest rooms feature balconies, pillow-top mattresses, minifridges, flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi access, as well as bathrooms with separate tubs and showers. Recent guests said they found the rooms to be clean, spacious and comfortable. When they venture outside their rooms, visitors can spend their time getting treatments at the 6,000-square-foot Spa at the Shoals, working out in the fitness center or swimming and sunbathing at the outdoor pool. The only complaint from recent guests: the entrance to the hotel isn't clearly marked so finding it can be a little tricky. Members of the Marriott Rewards program can earn and use points here.

    The Wind Creek Casino & Hotel could afford to skimp on the quality of its rooms, considering it also has a casino, an on-site spa and a nearby golf course. But it doesn't. The beds in each of the 236 guest rooms are dressed in 320-thread-count sheets, 42-inch flat-screen TVs and refrigerators. When you're not sleeping off a night of gambling or enjoying room service from FIRE Steakhouse, make your way to the Spa at Wind Creek for a facial, lounge by the pool or test your game at the on-site bowling alley and arcade. Recent guests' primary complaint is the amount of cigarette smoke in the casino. You'll find the Wind Creek Casino & Hotel in the small town of Atmore, Alabama, just north of the western tip of Florida's panhandle.
