Comments: This is a great hotel, the view alone is worth the price!  My room was on the 25th floor, I was happy!  Room service is pricey, a Subway sandwich shop & other private restaurants are within walking distance.   Don’t miss a visit to the USS Alabama, a WWII battleship that offers self-guided tours.  The ship is viewable from the hotel.
