Site Visit: Grand Bohemian Hotel Mountain Brook

By Stephanie Davis Smith, February 28, 2016

The state of Alabama got its first luxury boutique hotel in fall 2015 when The Kessler Collection opened Grand Bohemian Hotel Mountain Brook in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. “Mountain Brook is a unique suburb of Birmingham designed in the 1920s,” says Thomas Hoffman, general manager. “It’s village-style living with high-end shops and restaurants, and it’s extremely walkable and quaint.”

Christian conferences meeting in Alabama’s largest city (like Motion 16, Gridiron Men’s Conference and ReCreate 2016) may be drawn to Grand Bohemian for its close proximity to Birmingham’s convention center, the BJCC—an eight-minute drive away. The 100-room hotel also has more than 12,000 square feet of customizable meeting space including a 6,200-sq.-ft. ballroom that fits 650 people reception-style, a boardroom and two smaller function rooms. Groups booking 50 rooms are ideal, according to Hoffman, but notes buyouts are available on a case-by-case basis. Grand Bohemian’s amenities include an art gallery, cooking school, rooftop bar and spa.
