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

My husband and I actually stayed her a few years back! Just getting around to review. This Inn is wonderful. The whole place is "green". We were in a third floor room. The rooms are quite spacious. Kitchen, living area, large dining table, etc. Beautiful area rugs and local art work on walls. Our room actually had a nice little... More

Overnight stay over Valentines Day weekend. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Spa suite was well designed - very modern amenities with an old world feel. Walking distance to restaurants and entertainment. Not inexpensive, but was competitive in the area. We will stay again!

Having never visited Baltimore before, I didn't know much about neighborhoods when booking a room for my boyfriend's birthday weekend and Valentine's Day. We like to walk and the city is large and spread out. Originally booked in a downtown 4 star, which looked nice, but upon further reflection, realized I'd be stuck in a location with nothing much to... More

An unplanned overnight in Baltimore found us at the desk of this hotel! We knew nothing about it which is not my style! Great find however! The desk attendant was helpful and quick to assign us a room which turned out to be what they call a spa suite. I've sent MANY nights in Baltimore hotels and I have to... More
