Check if renovations are finished or do not stay here. Normally this hotel provided a good experience but while under renovation the experience was terrible and overpriced. I am hoping it will get back to the service level they provided previously but they do not handle the transition well at all. The "restauarant" during the transition is a small room... More

This was such as wonderful hotel, the staff was amazing. We arrived during a major snow storm and the hotel handled everything, and made us feel right at home. Great experience, would stay there again, and recommend to others.

Excellent Staff, Nice rooms but elevators need an overhaul otherwise great hotel. Will definately stay at this location again but then again it is the closest Hilton to Johns Hopkins University until the new Homewood suites opens.

Nice place, nice service - really confortable to be there. Business was taken care of and the hotel did support our need for social activities beside the business. Allthough the hotel was outside the Baltimore center it was easy to reach the center and Mall's

Hotel room and bathroom was very nice and clean. Location was great between DC and Baltimore Area. But the hotel staff was rude, snow in the parking lot needs to be shoveled for people staying there. Also to add to the reason I'm providing them a 2 out of 5 review is because you are know for the famous cookies... More

Stayed here while on a business trip to the area. Exterior: the exterior grounds were clean and it appeared presentable. However, there were several portions of the parking lot that had not been cleared of the ice and snow, even though it hadn't snowed for at least a day (or more). It's not off a main road at all and... More

We went to this hotel after a bad experience at another hotel in the area. The front desk staff (Vanesia, Fabiola, Chantal and Fele) were absolutely wonderful people. We had a problem with noise in our first room and we were given another immediately with no questions. The staff there set the standard for all other customer service staff. We... More

Majority of the hotel was fine it was clean upon entry and the room was neat and tidy and clean upon first visit. However there was only 1 working elevator most the time and none on one day having to take the stairs. They didn't offer their customary cookie at check in and being a diamond member meant nothing to... More

I had a very pleasant experience at the DoubleTree in Columbia where I recently stayed during a business meeting. The hotel was quiet, conveniently located, modern, and very well maintained. Rooms were clean, staff friendly, and the restaurant food was good.
