Downtown Mobile is a friendly, walkable neighborhood. Residents (and tourists) are increasingly drawn here by the urban energy which emanates from the blend of big and small businesses, all within a beautiful, historic district. Hospitality abounds from sidewalk dining and shopping, not to mention the finest hotels in Alabama, while public green spaces beckon with blooms and community events. Check out the LoDa Shopping and Dining Guide for more info.

Our hotels are the finest in Alabama. The flowers are always blooming, the parks are always lovely, and there are activities almost every day to keep you entertained.
