The Fort Conde Inn, Alabama's only 4-star, AAA four diamond rated boutique hotel and bed and breakfast, is a luxurious facility exuding the style and feel of nineteenth century Mobile. Requiring two years of meticulous workmanship, the Inn has now been restored to its original Victorian splendor. Built in 1836, the Fort Conde Inn (Hall-Ford House) is Mobile’s second oldest house and its interior and exterior finishes reflect its architectural vintage from original heart pine flooring and custom-milled stairways, moldings, and window and door trim to marble fireplace mantles, plaster walls, 12 foot ceilings and crystal chandeliers. The Fort Conde Inn, located in Mobile's historic Fort Conde Village, has recently expanded to include four newly restored hisorically certified homes: The Antunez House, the Spear-Barter House, as well as the Blakely and Gonzalez cottages. Walking into the Inn today, is like taking a step back in time to when these homes were originally built. The Inn sits on a quiet street in Fort Conde Village surrounded by Victorian homes restored with integrity and respect for their architectural heritage. It is situated adjacent to Fort Conde, a pre-revolutionary war fort built by the French in 1720 and named after the Prince of Conde, a grandson of Luis XIV. Mobile was founded by the French and the fort protected Mobile from incursions by the British. In recognition of the French heritage of this land, the rooms at the Inn have been named in French after friends and family members of the owner.

Great little inn. Good staff, clean and comfortable room, delicious breakfast. Surprisingly quiet considering the location. Easy walk to restaurants, etc. We’ll stay here anytime we’re in the area. ***********

After cancelling out of a nearby hotel we stumbled upon Fort Conde Inn late one Saturday afternoon. What an amazing find. Danielle at the front desk escorted us to 3 different rooms in separate buildings to provide an unhurried choice. We chose a ground floor very spacious room in the carriage house adjoining main building. Apparently, the owners are currently buying and renovating the entire block, somewhat hidden behind Fort Conde. But the absolute best value occurred the next two mornings with an extravagant made-to-order menu selection, including omelets and Eggs Benedict or "A La Bamian". Kudos to Rachael in the kitchen as the presentation and content was perfection. Best value B and B in years. Also, free on-street parking was convenient and plentiful.

stayed in one of the cottages. Ok this was odd. there were two very large sitting rooms (but no tvs in either) and there were two bedrooms with tvs. no books or other ways to enjoy the space. I guess it's set up more for parties. kitchen was very small. dining room large , the set up was just strange bathroom down the hall... not feeling real safe in this area. gunshot woke us up. no grocery store nearby no place to eat nearby. the main hotel looks pretty. next day, some guy was mowing the dirt (there was no grass...) throwing up acorns and dirt onto our car. lack of feeling safe gives low marks. the beds were very comfortable. I suppose if there were more people staying it would have Been a bit better.

My wife and I stayed here and everything here is wonderful. It is an old building with lots of charm. Staff was great and extremely accommodating with all our requests. Linens are nice as bath soaps, shampoos etc. A very nice way to get away from the hotel chains, while easy walking to many restaurants and things to do. We would certainly stay here again next time we are in mobile.

Beautiful historic property, walking distance to all the great spots downtown. Absolutely wonderful staff- very accommodating with every request! Lots of great amenities, and delicious included breakfast. My stay was incredibly relaxing, I can’t wait to return! Stay away from the chains and stay at this home, with so much character and personalized service.
