Montgomery is Alabama’s capital city, and a growing tourist destination despite its relatively small size population wise. Humid and wet all year long, many people are finding Montgomery to be a convenient place to do business in the deep south. When you book your hotel for your visit to Montgomery, be sure to do it here with us at Skyscanner so that you’ll get the best rates and have a pleasant stay in “the Gump.”
Montgomery’s hotels aren’t clumped into any one particular spot but instead fall into a few tiny clusters, each with a handful of hotels. There’s a cluster on the southwest and southeast of Montgomery, corresponding to the route 231 and highway 65 on/off ramps respectively. There’s another cluster of hotels in downtown Montgomery, near Riverfront park.
There are also a few hotels on the far north outliers of Montgomery. These tend to be the cheapest hotels, but they’re quite a hike from downtown.
Hotels in Montgomery range from just under $100 to just under $200, though if you opt for luxury, you’ll pay even more. Most of the hotels in the Centennial Hill district which roughly corresponds to downtown are priced over $100 per night.
The farther from the center of Montgomery that you go, the less you’ll pay for a hotel. You’ll probably get fewer amenities, too, but if you just plan on passing through, picking one of the hotels near the highway might be the right choice for you.
Montgomery doesn’t have a reputation for luxury, but there are four-star hotels in town and a number of international chain hotels where you’ll be able to find amenities like pools and spas without too much trouble. Most of Montgomery’s hotels are in the two or three-star range and offer the standard set of amenities at an affordable price.
The unique hotels in Montgomery are those with a historical background, such as the ones in Old Alabama Town and south of route 85. These hotels make no bones about their past, as many were often involved in the slave trade or were the homes of poor freedmen after the Civil War.
There was formerly a hotel located in the First White House of the Confederacy, but it’s since become a historical landmark and is now off-limits to the public. Look for other hotel opportunities like that when you’re searching for a hotel to book in Montgomery.
Many of these small hotels in Montgomery have stories to tell, and a few of them have stories that are as recent as the Civil Rights Era, so be sure to do your research on your hotel’s history before you book.
Interestingly, Montgomery’s growing status as a business hub has led to a few of the international hotel chains opting to build their hotels farther from the historical districts so as to preserve the parts of old Montgomery.
This is why I love Montgomery Zoo, the animals are all beautiful. So much education and care goes into this Zoo. Great family place.
Montgomery, Alabama became a part of the United States in 1819. The city has a population of over two hundred thousand people, and though it's the capital of Alabama, it's actually Alabama's second largest city (Birmingham being the largest city).
