The Southern Guest Experience
In the heart of scenic Mountain Brook, the The Kessler Collection’s Grand Bohemian Hotel takes an artistic approach to luxury accommodations. With the high style of the Renaissance as a subtle backdrop, the hotel’s chic design whisks you away into a present-day fairytale defined by saturated hues, natural elements, and curious details.

At the hotel’s rooftop bar and restaurant, Habitat Feed & Social, seasonal menus and cocktails are inspired by regional flavors as well as botanicals, fitting since it overlooks Birmingham Botanical Gardens. From seafood and garden-fresh veggies to house-made pasta, chef Julian Shell serves up modern Southern fare with singular finesse.

The onsite art gallery is filled with excellent examples from international and local artists. Take a tour of the hotel, sign up for a hands-on culinary class with chef Joshua Towey at the in-house Habitat Cooking School, and take part in a guided wine blending and tasting experience led by savvy sommeliers.
