We stayed at this Marriott in Mobile after the Order of Inca Mardi Gras parade. It was pretty average in every way…
…and didn’t make enough of an impression on me to want to stay here again. It’s not downtown – it’s over by the malls, and it just didn’t have a lot of character one way or the other.
I’m really waiting for the Battle House Hotel that the RSA is doing to open…that should turn out to be the best hotel in Mobile. The only weird thing is that the website has a tab for the spa, but it looks as though instead of having an on-site spa, that they’ll be directing people to the “minutes away” Grand Hotel Marriott in Point Clear.
Um, Point Clear is about 35-45 minutes away from downtown Mobile – not across the street or even across town – so I’m thinking that if you just want an hour massage or a mani/pedi, that’s not going to sound very good to spend more time driving over and back than the time your treatment takes…and if you’re going for a spa experience, it would make more sense to just stay in Point Clear….
