The Battle House has been hosting Mobile's top social events since 1852. Neo-Classical in design, the Crystal Ballroom has been restored to vintage colors circa 1908. The ornate work around the crown molding was a common architectural feature and has been painstakingly restored to its former grandeur. The hotel's restoration offers an exceptional WOW! factor for meeting attendees, historians and others seeking exceptional Southern charm.
