About

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.

We recently stayed in the "Meredith" room. It was a surprise anniversary get-a-way for my husband and I. As I planned in secret, Brandon worked with me and went above the call to make our stay memorable. From the moment we arrived up until we left..our every need was met and the stay was FANTASTIC! Thank you guys for an AWESOME stay and a lasting memory!!


A Historical Beauty

Spent 2 days at this B & B. Probably one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. The history and renovation of the building is quite interesting. The staff appear to be very proud of the Inn based on our interactions with them. Everyone was very gracious and accommodating. I would certainly consider staying here again.

I stayed here for a conference in the Meredith room#3. Every employee I came in contact with had a smile on there face. You could tell they loved there job. Amy, a housekeeper there, went above and beyond to make my stay comfortable. From fresh bath aminities to ironing my scrubs to work in the next day! Never have I ever had such great service. If I'm ever in mobile, Al, Fort Conde Inn will be my home away from home!


Can't wait to go back!

It was better than expected. The welcome mat was extended before we arrived ... The rooms are just the right size (with fireplace) and the bathroom was beautiful. The breakfast next day was plentiful and delicious. I'll go back in a NY second.

I was looking for a place to stay for a special anniversary night and ran across this place, when I called to make reservations I had a bit of trouble but finally got threw. I told them why I was staying and when we arrived they had it set up perfectly! From wine on ice to swans on the bed! My wife was amazed at the little things the housekeepers were willing to do for us! But don't get confused, they are twins!!! Thanks for a wonderful night fort conde inn!!!!
