Montgomery, the history-steeped capital of Alabama, is home to a dozen museums, significant Civil War landmarks, and a diverse food and music scene. In the cobblestoned downtown area, you’ll find red-brick architecture and cultural venues including one of the largest Shakespearean theatres in the world. Here’s our pick of the best hotels in Montgomery – they’re all bookable with Culture Trip.

1. Renaissance Montgomery Hotel & Spa at the Convention Center

Renaissance Montgomery Hotel & Spa at the Convention Center. Hotel lobby area with large stone fireplace, leather armchairs and a gold coffee table.

This hotel sits next to the Montgomery Performing Arts Center in an unbeatable downtown location. Rooms are upmarket, with marble bathrooms and touchscreen controls. One wall is dedicated to a historic downtown photograph, a nod to the storied past of the city. The house restaurant serves Alabama-inspired dishes, from fried green tomatoes to cowboy ribeyes, with all ingredients sourced from local farmers. The full-service spa has a wide-ranging treatment menu of renewing and enhancing massages, facials and pedicures.

Rooms at the DoubleTree are ample in space, especially for a city hotel, and come with signature Sweet Dreams beds and all the mod-cons you need. A short walk from the lobby is the Rosa Parks Library, Legacy Museum and other historic sites; Maxwell Air Force Base is a seven-minute drive away. Back at the hotel, relax to views of the city on the garden terrace. The hotel is pet-friendly and service is pure Southern comfort.

3. Wind Creek Casino & Hotel Montgomery

Hotel, Resort

Wind Creek Casino & Hotel Montgomery. Hotel room with large bed in the centre flanked either side by lamps and nightstands.

A hotel next to Creek Casino Montgomery doesn’t seem like the place for a serene and relaxing stay. This place, however, strikes a great balance between rest and late-night fun. There are 153 smoke-free rooms, three restaurants, two bars, a huge outdoor pool and a gym. The salon and barber shop will get you spruced up for nights on the town, while in-room dining is available for quieter nights in.

Jump into the outdoor swimming pool, work out at the gym and ask the English- and Spanish-speaking staff to suggest a restaurant for dinner. Breakfasts are hearty and all-American. When it’s time to leave, you’ll find the airport just 8mi (13km) away.

La Quinta Inn & Suites by Wyndham Prattville. Orange-walled hotel room with a bed on the right, chair in the middle and indoor hot tub on the left.

Wake up here to a free Bright Side Breakfast of waffles, muffins, fresh fruit, and heaps of hot food – plus limitless coffee – and get off to a strong start. In between exploring the local area of Prattville, 10mi (16km) north of downtown Montgomery, you can squeeze in a gym workout or a dip in the outdoor pool. Big, boldly decorated rooms feature a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker and HDTV for a post-sightseeing movie night. You’ll find service to be warm and friendly.

6. Hampton Inn & Suites Montgomery-Downtown

Hotel, Chain Hotel

Hampton Inn & Suites Montgomery-Downtown. Historic marble-clad lobby with wrought iron banister leading to upper floors of the hotel.

If only these walls could talk. Originally opened in 1928 as the Greystone Hotel, this hotel sits in the downtown area close to the Legacy Museum, Rosa Parks Museum, and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice. The marble-clad lobby has a sweeping staircase that leads to modern, fully-equipped rooms; each has an armchair and a desk with ergonomic chair, if you really must answer those emails. Wake up to an all-American buffet breakfast.

7. Homewood Suites by Hilton Montgomery

As you’d expect from the Hilton brand, this hotel ticks all the boxes: an outdoor pool, a gym for your morning workout, and free wifi. Breakfast and parking are also included, and it’s pet-friendly, handy for animal lovers. The location in the east of the city is a big tick. The hotel sits in a quiet, tree-lined neighborhood – ideal for dog-walking – with all of the must-see historical landmarks and museums close by, as well as restaurants and bars. For the full American experience, book tickets to a baseball game at Riverwalk Stadium.

8. Red Bluff Cottage Bed & Breakfast

Hotel, Bed and Breakfast, Independent Hotel

Red Bluff Cottage Bed & Breakfast. Traditional-style B&B room decorated with French Curtains, a rocking chair and a wooden table.

Nothing says Southern comfort quite like this quaint white cottage with a picket fence and leafy gardens. Owners Barry and Bonnie Ponstein will treat you to a breakfast spread of waffles, omelettes, and numerous other hearty options. The rooms are individually decorated, but equally romantic and comfortable: think queen-size mahogany sleigh beds, Tiffany lamps and cozy loveseats. The biggest draw, however, is the panoramic view of the downtown skyline and the Alabama River plain from the veranda.

9. The Lattice Inn
