This is a great hotel. It is walking distance to the Harbor and very easy to find. It is easy to find parking and parking is very inexpensive. There is a spacious parking garage just next to the hotel. I attended two events here recently. The food was delicious and the hospitality was amazing. It is a small hotel and... More

My friends and I had a reunion in Baltimore May 7-10 and decided to stay at Inn at The Black Olive. If you are looking for a quaint, slightly European "green" vibe, this is the place. The rooms are sparse, but very comfortable with an industrial feel. The hotel is very small, 12 rooms, but soundproof and comfortable. One negative... More

Surprisingly gracious, spacious. There's a 200-character review minimum but really, what more do you need to know? That the Spiliades family are consummate hosts? That Woody Harrelson likes the place so much, he invested in it? Just a great hotel.

My wife and I lived in downtown Baltimore for 12 years before moving to the suburbs 4 yrs ago. Several times a year we do a "staycation" in the city. We usually stay at the Four Seasons, but decided to look for something different this time. We decided to try the Inn at the Black Olive based on reviews and... More

We knew when we booked that this property was not going to be a typical hotel experience. We were happily correct - what a unique and satisfying experience. The rooms are spacious and nicely appointed. A lot of thought has clearly been put into the supplies and materials provided in each room, something we appreciate. The location is great, walking...

Extremely comfortable, very friendly and supportive staff. Was like staying in a very relaxing home. Would like to have stayed for much longer time, but schedule only allowed for one night stay. On-site cafe provided extraordinary and very attractive and sumptuous meals.

The staff was extremely friendly. Carrying our bags to or room and delivering ice was just the start. They were kind enough to scatter rose petals around the room, made a heart on the bed, and around the bath tub. They also gave us a supply of bath salts to use in the two person hydro therapy hot tub. The... More

My father and I spent three days and nights at this very unique hotel. Overall, our experience was a very positive one, but only because the manager, Dimitris, and his staff gave us highly-personalized attention and went out of their way to help overcome some issues we experienced. 1. We arrived at the hotel at around 4PM (check-in time is... More

Stayed overnight using hotel tonight got room for $200. The rooms need a lot of minor repairs to the stucco walls (small chips and stains) throughout which to me made the whole place feel unclean. The decor was minimal and felt very cold. The plastic plumbing under the sinks are exposed which just looks unfinished, not 'minimalist'. For what they... More
