Our guests thoughts

from TripAdvisor

Visited on a Tuesday so was quiet and especially relaxing. Valet parking complimentary in Laurel lot.

“New spa at The Laurel Hotel in downtown Auburn on 6th floor new building. Very good massage from Jamal and very good facial with Alice. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Coed relaxation room with view over Auburn. Very clean, quiet and relaxing.”

Auburn's best kept secret!

“What a hidden gem… we had an incredible experience from the moment we stepped into the lobby @ The Laurel. The staff offer the best “southern hospitality” and are more than happy to go over the top to accommodate their guests. We had a junior suite which was a huge space w 1.5 baths, a bar area, table, sectional in one room with a king bed in the other. Floor to ceiling windows and super tall ceilings add to the feeling of immensity. The bathroom included a deep soaking tub and a separate large shower w multiple jets, as well as luxurious smelling amenities. The library/check in area offered delicious food prepared by hand- breakfast, afternoon snack and dessert. Beverages are also included. We have traveled extensively and this hotel is at the top of our list for first class lodging, service and dining.”

The Laurel treats all guests like world famous celebrities!

“We had an AMAZING stay at the Laurel! From Jason’s masterful initial floor-by-floor tour of the amenities, to the attentive Library staff under Justin’s expert guidance, to Brennan’s earnest work to make us comfortable whenever she saw us, to Harper’s engaging personality at the Rooftop; we felt like celebrities at every level (we are NOT celebrities). The changing offerings at the Library were all interesting, creative and DELICIOUS. The Rooftop was inviting, gorgeous and was the PERFECT place to enjoy the Orange & Blue Auburn sunset. The (warmed) Pool was EXQUISITE, and a perfect place to relax and let go of the stressors back home. At all points the staff went above & beyond to make us feel deeply valued and appreciated. We got very used to the generous service we received at the Laurel, and we missed it almost immediately when we got home.”

Opening Day

“I had a wonderful stay at The Laurel Hotel & Spa on their opening day. The management and staff were very welcoming. Mary Margaret and Ashley gave me a great tour of the property, while my bag was being delivered to my room. The rooftop has great views of Auburn, a beautiful garden (maintained by students I believe), a dining option for drinks and small bites, and a rooftop pool. The hotel’s library has hors d’oeuvres, drinks, and other snacks for guests throughout the day. I also noticed some tastefully placed games (like playing cards) on some of the tables.”

The amazing Laurel Hotel in Auburn, AL

“My wife and I had the privilege of staying at the Laurel Hotel in Auburn,AL this week. We have been fortunate to have stayed at many amazing places around the world - but I do not think I have seen a nicer hotel anywhere. The rooms are amazing and the service is second to none. I wish there were more than 5 stars for their rating. Outstanding!”
