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.

A secret treasure!

5 on January 13, 2015

We just happened upon this bed and breakfast while searching for a special place to spend a birthday. Have stayed in Mobile hundreds of times and never knew it existed. We were extremely surprised and satisfied with the whole experience! Would and have recommended this Inn to all our friends!


Beautiful Suite

4.4 on January 12, 2015

We loved staying in the Queen suite across the road from the Inn. We arrived later than check in time but got sorted quickly and efficiently. The innkeeper was friendly and accommodating. The room was beautiful and perfect if you like character. Everything was clean and we were provided with towel gowns for our stay. Just be aware that a train goes through Mobile a couple of times each night and is quite loud…I know that this is beyond the hotel's control though, just something to be aware of. We can't really comment on the the breakfast facilities. We went down 30minutes before breakfast ended and couldn't find anywhere to sit together. Seating was around 2 larger tables and the only seats available were separate. We passed on breakfast as we wanted to be able to sit together. We did wait 5 minutes or so to see if there was anyone to ask if we could be seated together, but there was no sign of any staff. Overall though, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend the Inn to family & friends visiting Mobile…we would just advise that they go for breakfast as early as possible :-)

Best breakfast ever

3.8 on October 13, 2014

The breakfast was superb. It was everything I could have asked for. The room was uncomfortably warm and I could not reach the a/c controls. However the little kitchenette was nice, the bed and pillows were comfortable and the chair was very comfortable. You could not see the TV from the chair however.


Very pleased with everything!

5 on October 01, 2014

The room was as advertised. We appreciated both the king bed and the Jacuzzi bath. Staff was attentive and courteous. Our breakfasts were prepared -- deliciously! -- by a professional chef, who offered a choice of 4 entrees each morning. The hotel is in the heart of the downtown historic district, which we enjoyed exploring. In addition, it offered easy access to I-10 and then to roads to Dauphin Island, the USS Alabama Park, Bellingrath Gardens, We were very pleased with the value and will stay there again when in Mobile!
