I had the pleasure of spending a glorious night (8/28/2010-8/29/2015) at the Inn at the Black Olive in Baltimore, Maryland. Where should I begin? 1. The staff (team is a better description) was friendly, warm, kind, knowledgeable, and a sheer delight to interact with. The team members I encountered at the front desk, the Olive Room, and Agora Market +... More

Our room was delightful!! So spacious, clean and well decorated. It was a corner suite, large and sunny. Direct TV remote took some learning, and it would be helpful to have instructions on how to operate it. A TV in the bedroom would be nice.

I left a power cord in my room, called later that day, and was told they had found and would send it to me. Great! A week later, no cord. I called again. Nearly three weeks later--no cord. Bad enough not to send it, but to say they'd send it and then not do so--inexcusable.

The room I reserved wasn't ready for a @5:00pm check in, apparently it was somewhat ''a mess" and required additional cleaning. We were offered another suite, but it had only one bed and there were three of us. We were moved into the room I reserved later that night. The space is large and sparsely furnished. Paint was peeling from... More

I'm shocked to see this was a TripAdvisor winner in the past. Yes, the hotel has embraced the sustainability philosophy, but they need to go back to basics on their hospitality standards. A few of the issues I encountered: slow draining/clogged bathroom sink (eew), raggedy towels, ironing board but no iron, no hangers in closet, smelly kitchenette sink & fridge... More

Stayed here after a wonderful Champagne Dinner featuring Thienot and Canard Duchene in the Olive Room. The food and service were top notch and having room right downstairs, that was bigger than my first apartment, after was the perfect end to the night.

The rooms have an incredible amount of "extras" that make a stay at the Black Olive a true pleasure. Each room as a bottle of wine, google TV, everything is organic, staff goes out of their way to take care of you. The rooms are large with a kitchen, extra large bathrooms with tub and shower, sitting area, work area...a... More

What a great place to stay on a business trip. All the comforts of home and none of the dishes to clean. I am a long time vegetarian so I love all the choices at the restaurant at the top of the inn. My second day we ended up with a large dinner party of 18 and were set up... More
