The hotel was nice and clean, but what really stood out was the shuttle driver name Dominic. He was very nice, it was like we were on a tour each time he took us to where we needed to go. He made our trip pleasant by being so accommodating especially since we were there for medical reasons. Dominic is an... More

We went to Baltimore to visit Hopkins' campus. Unfortunately when we arrived the hotel was all booked but we ended up with a "suite" ...sweet right?! Wrong! The young lady at the front told us that there was a lack of window space but we were literally underground. I did feel safe down in the bunker but was less than... More

Ended up staying at this hotel via Hotwire's hotel roulette. Location is very convenient to power plant live and a half mile walk to the waterfront. Overall the group liked the hotel, and the free breakfast was a huge perk. Cool hotel as it is built inside an old bank. Also right next door is a 7-11 so you can... More

This was my 3rd time staying at the Holiday Inn Express, I found the staff to be very pleasant and accommodating. The hotel offers shuttle service to and from John Hopkins Hospital which was a plus. I found this service to be very accommodating in transporting my family around. The Hotel met all of our needs, thanks to Dominic; James;... More

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised by the holiday inn express in downtown Baltimore, MD. The building is a converted bank building and it is beautiful! We come to Baltimore to visit Johns Hopkins at least once a year so we need something that offers a shuttle to and from the hospital. Lucky for us, the shuttle runs for... More

He was very approachable... More

I am a Platinum Elite member of the IHG Club. On my arrival at the Holiday Inn Baltimore - Downtown at 1:45pm, it was a 'nightmare'! 'Tina' the desk representative was less than friendly and even though I had requested an 'early Check in' I was told that others had come early and rooms weren't ready and we would have... More

So decided to take the girlfriend to Baltimore for a one night stay for her birthday. We chose Holiday Inn Express. We are glad we did! Our experience started off great - we got there 2 hours before we were suppose to be able to check-in - the place is very clean and elegant at the entrance. The front desk... More

This lovely hotel is conveniently located to many of Baltimore's best spots to visit. The room was nice and the breakfast area clean. Best of all their complementary shuttle makes it easy to get around once there. Our drivers, James and Dominic, were pleasant and prompt. We would definitely stay here again!
