Disclaimer: After reading a couple reviews by people that complained about "homeless people" in the vestibule of the hotel, my recommendation would be not to book if you aren't used to life in the city. Having said that, if you like first class service in a luxurious hotel, book immediately. I booked my room on hotwire under the category "Boutique... More

I often stay at the Hotel Monaco in Baltimore, but this time, my boyfriend and I noticed a few things, but nothing to complain about with management. During our check out, the front desk manager (Vernon Drummond) asked if we had a great stay. He also asked if we encountered any problems. I mentioned 3 things and he asked if... More

The Monaco in Baltimore is a perfect hotel if you travel with your dog. Ours is about 65lbs. and they had no problem at all with that. There is no extra charge for the dog, and they bring up a bed, which she loved, two dog bowls and a bag of treats and pick up bags for your walks. The... More

My family and I were supposed to stay at the Hotel Monaco in Baltimore this weekend. When selecting where to go for a weekend getaway, this hotel greatly influenced our decision to go to Baltimore.

I have mixed feelings about the night I spent as a guest at this hotel. I suppose in some ways I'm nit-picking about some of the concerns I have — but at the moment the Monaco doesn't quite match up to the aspirations it has about itself. This venerable old railway company headquarters shows some splendid examples of restoration, and... More

My wife and I stayed here for a night while in Baltimore. The hotel was modern and clean. You have to use the Valet to park but they are quick, attentive, and friendly. Check-in and check-out was easy and the staff was pleasant and helpful. The rooms are very clean and spacious. My only complaint is that the blankets on... More

Attractive surroundings, spacious rooms and friendly people found here. It's not located at Inner Harbor and that's a good thing. Kimpton's updates enhance the architectural details of the stunning B&O building interior. Our room and the common areas were clean and well-maintained. We arrived just as the hospitality hour ended so we were provided coupons for complimentary glasses of wine... More

This was my second stay at a Kimpton and it won't be my last. They are masters at creating a charming and unique space. First, the hotel is located in the iconic B&O building with a few reminders of its former tenants and use beautifully maintained. The room was clean and very comfortable, the public space very welcoming. When I... More

This is one of those "not-to-miss" gems in the hotel world. Located in the historic and elegant B&O building, the spacious rooms and public spaces feed the soul. The beautiful fireplace lounge, adjacent to the lobby, is the perfect site for conversation or work, over (free) morning coffee or (free) evening wine. I felt refreshed and renewed after a business... More
