It is a decent place to stay. We stayed in a studio. Our room was comfortable and clean. It had the things you would need for an extended stay - fridge, mini kitchen, and some seating space. It is kinda a no-frills place but the décor is streamlined and uncluttered. The gym was tiny. I think this would be a... More

Room was very comfortable however, the mattress was a little soft for my liking. It seemed to have a soft ( wore out) spot in it that I kept rolling into. Might be time to change out some mattresses. Front desk staff friendly and helpful. Would stay here again

I was on business in Baltimore last week and was relocated to Columbia due to the riots. My company moved me to this property for the remainder of my stay, 3 nights. I would have preferred a more typical hotel experience with a full restaurant, indoor pool, etc., but the property was extremely clean and the service outstanding. A couple... More

We prefer to keep our car when visiting cities, then drive to places we choose to explore. This residence inn was well maintained, and for us, a good location. We visited Baltimore and Ellicott City, and within minutes, we drove to the Residence Inn. It was also a convenient 10-minute drive to Toby's Dinner Theater, Columbia Mall, and other places... More

Staff were very friendly at check-in. They had yummy chicken tacos during the (free!) evening social. During this time, they were constantly re-filling and cleaning the area. Our room was huge and was recently renovated. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, etc. Everything smelled new and clean. My bed was super comfortable. The wifi worked perfectly and was free.... More

We are currently staying at this hotel and can't say enough about how great it is. The staff have truly gone above and beyond to make us feel at home. We've been there about a week and half. When it was snowing, they decided to provide heavy appetizers and soup so that we wouldn't have to drive in the dangerous... More

I was not at the property long. I checked in about 5 pm and was out the next morning at 6:15 am - so here are my quick observations for about 12 hours of time: Front desk - friendly, acknowledged my status, moved me promptly when I did not care for the potential noise factor of my initial room. 5...

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.

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.
