This is truly a special place! Since we purchased the condo last year the every contractor we have had has another Bear Bryant story involving this building and this particular condo. This was the only hotel in Tuscaloosa till the early 80s and the team would stay here the night before games. The condo is over 2000 sq ft. It includes a full eat in Kitchen, Dining room, Den with full entertainment center. There is a bunk room with a futon and 4 individual bunk bends. The 2nd Bedroom has a full bath and double bed. The master has a King bed and full bath.

The condo is tastefully decorated with plenty of Tide paraphernalia all over every room. The kitchen has all Stainless appliances and huge Fridge for all the food and beverages you can handle.

Views, Views, Views. Amazing Views of Bryant Denny Stadium and Downtown Tuscaloosa as this is the 9th floor unit. Enjoy Coffee, Breakfast and Bloody Mary's on Gameday in the Kitchen while staring at the Stadium.

About Shawn

My wife and I are Bama grads and have two major miniature fans in our house. Our hopes are that those mini fans become students several years from now. Tuscaloosa has changed a lot since we graduated and downtown is central to everything. We plan to make as many games as possible however, we want other respectful fans to enjoy a fantastic gameday or any other experience in Tuscaloosa when visiting the campus.

Shawn purchased this condo in 2011

Why Shawn chose Tuscaloosa

There is nothing like it! 180 degree views of Tuscaloosa from the 9th floor in Downtown. You will not find a more spacious, comfortable and convenient location. Park your car and walk everywhere.

What makes this condo unique

Very secure 9th floor and one of its kind Condo that Bear Bryant occupied and played cards in the Dining room.

Best place to stay in Tuscaloosa

  • 5 of 5

This is the most beautiful place to stay in Tuscaloosa! The furnishings, decor and memorabilia feel like you are spending the night in a Bama museum. Don't ask stay here unless you are going to treat the property with care, but if you will then you won't regret it.
