Montgomery offers a wide variety of lodging choices, including luxury hotels with rooftop pools, charming romantic inns and just about everything in between. If you’re look for the most unforgettable stay while in the Alabama capital, these accommodations are true standouts.
Renaissance Montgomery Hotel and Spa
When it comes to luxury in downtown Montgomery, the Renaissance is hard to beat. It not only offers location, attached to the convention center, but some of the best amenities of any hotel in the city. Its highlight is a lavish rooftop pool, though guests will also find a 24-hour fitness center, indoor pool, three restaurants, a pub with happening nightlife and a performing arts center – all right on the premises.
Rooms boast luxurious bedding, spa-like marble bathrooms, and all the latest high-tech amenities like iPod docks, flat screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. After a long day at work, or at play, there are few better ways to relax than by enjoying fine Southern cuisine at its signature eatery, The House, followed by a massage in the spa and then sinking into an ultra-comfy bed with a down comforter.
Red Bluff Cottage Bed & Breakfast
Located right downtown near the State Capitol, Red Bluff Cottage Bed & Breakfast is the only B&B in Alabama that was built for the very purpose it serves today. It replicates a late 19th-century Victorian raised cottage, and features period antiques throughout, along with scenic views from its picturesque gazebo and verandah.
Ideal for those looking for a romantic escape in the heart of the city, guests enjoy being transported to the feel of a quieter time with easy access to some of the city’s most popular sights. In addition to the State Capitol, the First White House of the Confederacy, the Hank Williams Museum, Montgomery Performing Arts Center, the Riverwalk Amphitheatre and multiple other attractions, are just a short walk away.
Rooms feature luxury linens and toiletries along with plush robes, a desk, iPod radio alarm clocks and regular turn-down service. Unlike hotels that include breakfast, Red Bluff Cottage offers a morning meal to remember. Served at a Country English banquet table, complete with fine china, gourmet breakfasts include organic, non-GMO ingredients whenever possible, such as favorites like the Wild Rice Waffles served with fresh berries. Throughout the day, guests will find complimentary fresh coffee, an extensive selective of teas, water and snacks.
The Lattice Inn
The Lattice Inn offers a unique stay in a restored 1906 cottage in the heart of the historic Garden District just minutes from Alabama State University. Ideal when you’re looking for more intimate accommodations, it features four cozy rooms, each with microwaves and refrigerators, as well as flat-screen TVs, DVD/CD players, free Wi-Fi and king-size pillowtop beds. Unusual for a B&B, it also includes a seasonal outdoor saltwater pool with an expansive sundeck, a spa tub, barbecue grills, tranquil garden areas and even a Koi pond.
Guests can also expect to enjoy plenty of personal touches that few hotels offer, like fresh-baked cookies waiting after a day of exploring the city, insider advice on what to see and do in the area, and perhaps even the opportunity to make a new friend, with an especially warm and welcoming host.
