My husband and I come to Baltimore and Howard County at least twice a year. We lived here for many years and come back to visit friends. We are Marriott Gold Elite members and spend 30-40 nights in an average year in Marriott hotels. I have mixed feelings about this visit. The people are kind and attentive, but the hotel... More

This began several months ago when I first began looking for a room in Baltimore for the Army/Navy game. When I decided on this hotel, Darrius contacted me via email to introduce himself and to insure that I understood that I should never hesitate to call him for anything, at anytime. True to form, when I contacted him to let... More

I reserved with Michael and he was helpful. On Friday I checked in after a hard drive in the rain during rush hour. Immediately the woman at the desk gave me a bottle of water-what a nice gesture. I was not in the mood to go back out for a local chair restaurant so grabbed some food from the handy... More

My husband and I flew into Baltimore for a visit to Gettysburg and Hershey. Arriving late at night, we chose to stay nearby BWI and continue on to Gettysburg after some sleep.

My room was very clean only problem is that it's supposed to be nonsmoking and one of the 2 rooms was smoked in. I did call the front desk and let them know. If that room didn't stink of cigarettes it would have been great.

I live overseas but whenever I'm MD I always stay at the Residence Inn Ellicott City and am never disappointed. The rooms have everything you'd need, the staff are wonderfully helpful and professional, and the housekeepers do an excellent job. The breakfast is also perfect. I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.

I started the trip with a problem with my reservation - not good. The hotel staff I have to say more than made up for it during my stay. They were extremely polite and helpful at all turns during the weekend. I think the hotel was at or near full capacity, so they were stretched. My wife asked for oatmeal... More

Nope. After my March review I had a message from their GM apologizing for the grotty room & bad breakfast hygiene. I always appreciate when a business is proactive so I tried them again. Wish I hadn't. I arrived at 11:15pm, tired and ready for a good nights rest. The sullen desk clerk assigned me a 1st floor handicap room... More
