We stayed two nights, Sunday and Monday, in the Margaret Suite. While a nice room, we were awoken at 6:30 each morning by a loud noise that turned out to be the exhaust fan from the kitchen right below the room. So much for sleeping late. We were out all day Monday touring and returned to find that no room service had been provided in our room. Excuse Tuesday at checkout was that they had limited help and thought at least some clean-up had occurred. Very disappointing. Oh, while the room pictures show a fireplace, it's not in working order. Would probably have selected another room if that had been mentioned on the Web site.
Great location . We walked to everyplace we wanted to see. Clean Beautiful room and attentive staff. BREAKFAST WAS UNBELIEVABLE! Food was delicious and fun that it is served at the dining room table with other guests.... and by a very sweet Chef who not only prepares the meal but takes the time to talk to you, give you information about the area and the property... and share some stories! Staying here was more than a 5 star experience.
It was a wonderful stay at Fort Conde Inn. It is a great place for couples and business travelers. Wonderful staff, great breakfast. They make you feel like you are at home. I will definitely stay here again next time.
We were originally booked in the Carriage House, but we were upgraded to the main house upon arrival. Although close to the Interstate, the Inn is very quiet. Breakfast was fantastic, and the staff was helpful and accommodating.
Inn is beautiful inside. Run a bit more corporately with no involvement of owner and numerous young staff. We stayed in cottage room 9 which was nice except it had almost no wifi connectivity and slow draining tub. Breakfast were great. On day of check in they had a nice honor bar they explained then inexplicably it was locked the next 2 nights. Noise from trains pretty early in morning and from cruise ship terminal when ships in port.
We spent three days at the Fort Conde Inn--46th wedding anniversary--and loved lt! Staff were friendly and helpful, rooms spacious, clean, and comfortable, and the chef cooked individual breakfasts for each guest (the seafood eggs benedict was great!). Five minute walk from downtown restaurants and museums. the inn is a beautifully-remodeled 19th c Mobile home. We also enjoyed meeting other guests at breakfast and compare notes on restaurants and things to do. Modest price, free parking, tea/coffee and coolies available in afternoon/evening.
I was hooked in July (2016)...The carriage rooms; I have been in many other rooms since. I normally travel once a year but I am hooked. This time, I brought my husband and he loved it too. The breakfasts are custom and delicious, truly gourmet. The staff, all of them, are professional, accessible, honest, trustworthy and willing to do anything to make your stay very comfortable, without being obtrusive (unlike some other B&B's where privacy is scarce.) Every room has its own private bathroom, some with jetted Kohler tubs, one with a claw foot tub AND glassed in shower (double-sided fireplace!) but all very lovely. I am a fan of hotel toiletries and they offer L'Occitane (Verbena), now my favorite. There's no skimping on the toiletries, the bedding or the towels. The beds are plush and soft and, if anything, the pillows are too plush! The hotel is near the Carnival Cruise port and Fort Conde, the historical site. You can see the high rise luxury hotels (with only valet parking in congested areas) but this won't affect a Fort Conde Inn visitor. You will be nestled in a quiet enclave that looks as if you went back in time as you approach it over brick-paved streets. The hotel has been exquisitely renovated and each room is a historical gem--hardwood floors, gorgeous molding, adorable vintage light fixtures, Spanish tyle floors in some bathrooms and toile wallpaper in the carriage rooms (which also have mini fridges and microwaves, dishes and kitchen sinks) all rooms, from what I have seen, have Keurigs, no annoying coffee pots to tend to...and the tvs are large, many attached to the fireplaces that I believe are featured in every room. There is a peace to staying there; not just the serenity of the quiet atmosphere, but a feeling of safety, luxury and aesthetic beauty. Also, plenty of parking, no need for a valet. I met so many interesting people over the past five months of coming on mini-trips--people from all over the country and even a few from Germany and England. People travel from all over to go there (and Matthew McConaughey (sp) has been there as well, I heard, if that's your thing.) There are many things to do in Mobile (Mardi Gras is coming up.) You are only @50 minutes from Gulf Shores and shorter trip to Dauphin Island. But just driving and sight seeing along Government and Dauphin Streets are worth your time. If you want a luxury hotel without that mass-traffic, congested feel--if you want one which is a memorable experience of its own at a very reasonable price, you will not be disappointed. You may become a repeat visitor as well. Highly recommend as my favorite hotel/destination.
Enjoyed our stay in the carriage house. Quiet area, no through traffic, brick streets, easy walk to downtown Mobile. Our whole family enjoyed having breakfast cooked for us in the dining room, and visiting with other guests. Drinking coffee in the morning on the front porch was great too.
Incredible property, very nice and helpful employees, elegant homemade breakfast. The stay allowed a glance in southern lifestyle 100 years ago, combined with all contemporary amenities. Big compliments to the owners to have kept alive this wonderful ensemble in such a high scaled way.
Stayed just the one night unfortunately on our way to Louisiana. Staff were very welcoming and the breakfast was wonderful, our favourite during our month long trip to the US. It was great to chat to other guests over breakfast and hear their stories, we are definite B&B converts. We chatted with the owner , who told us how the Inn had been renovate from "soup to nuts" . Our room just off the courtyard was very comfortable and the l'occitane toiletries were a lovely touch. We'd love to return to mobile to see more of it and would definitely choose the forte Conde .
