Across the street from the harbor, shops, and restaurants, the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court has a top location. the lobby area is being renovated, so one needs to be directed to a makeshift desk on the second floor. Otherwise all the facilities, restaurant, kitchen, etc. are functioning. Thje rooms are large and well set up. The bathroom has a deep... More

The lobby is being remodeled, but the hotel staff made it a non-issue. Rooms are clean.....no, VERY clean. Beautiful furnishings, comfortable bedding, bathroom pristine. The staff from top to bottom was cordial and helpful...very professional. We had requested a King bed with a Harbor view....loved it. When we come back to town, THIS will be where we stay. I highly... More

I stayed at the Royal Sonesta over night to attend an engagement party in Federal Hills. The location is great. They were doing renovations so it was a little difficult to find check in from the parking garage. They needed more signs( it was too cold to walk around trying to find our way). The room was nice and very... More

For the money, I wasn't impressed. We were in town for a friend's wedding, but the hotel chose not to inform us or the bride and groom that renovations were underway. They seem to be doing everything they can to minimize the impact, but it would've been nice to be warned, and give us the option to look elsewhere. I... More

Brian, on behalf of our team, we apologize that we let you down. Our renovation has been promoted for many months prior to our December 2014 kickoff, particularly here on TripAdvisor, as we have referenced our plans dozens of times. Needless to say, if you were not aware, then certainly we have not done quite enough to let guests know... More

January 8-12, 2015: To our surprise, the lobby was closed and was under renovation. The staff went out of their way to make us comfortable despite the ongoing presence of workmen and banging throughout daylight hours (not evening, fortunately). The hotel rate was reduced to reflect the inconvenience. We found the staff very friendly and responsive. For instance, we called... More

My wife and I decided to spend our anniversary away from home. The royal Sonesta was perfect. The room was spacious and clean. The view of the Inner Harbor was awesome. From the valet service to the room service we were made to feel special. I will indeed return to this hotel

My husband and I chose this hotel for a quick get-away to celebrate our 17th anniversary based on their online pics of an amazing spiral staircase in the lobby.
