The hotel responded perfectly to our needs. Four generations of my family ranging in age from 3 years to 89 were entirely satisfied. Sherry, a waitress in the Explored Dining Room was most helpful. When my Kindle ran out of juice, she lent me her charging cable. The bellmen were all very gracious and accommodating. Jonathan, the Concierge, was tops.

Thank you for a lovely review of the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore! We especially appreciate the recognition for two of our stars, Sherry and Jonathan. Sherry has been with us for more than 16 years, delivering great smiles and even better service. It's often Sherry's face at breakfast time that our guests see at the start of the day,... More

We were in town for a wedding. I had reserved late and could only get room with 2 doubles. At checkin, I decided to upgrade to the only king room available, a mini-suite. All I can say is *WOW*!! this room was spacious, well appointed and had the BEST VIEW OF THE HARBOR! This was *so* worth the money. Bed... More

Each offers about 700 square feet of space, with a king bed and large sitting area.

My husband and I stayed at the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court in Baltimore for 3 nights. We have never stayed at a Royal Sonesta hotel so we were not sure what to expect. We were very pleasantly surprised upon arrival and were greeted by one of the 24 hour doormen. The Concierge, Jonathan Knox was amazing. He hooked us up... More

Spent 7 days at the Royal Sonesta and our stay was excellent from the front desk staff to the cleaning crew everyone was so nice and helpful. The hotel is extremely clean, and the location is impeccable.

Very welcoming professional staff totally helpful. Location on Baltimore Harbor is superb, perfect. Price is expensive. The second floor restaurant is very pricey. Could use more tourism information in the room-- curious, because this would be very easy to do!

I read after booking a refurb is planned. It is needed. The staff are friendly and location is good. Rooms are in need of a make over. But generally clean. I had no issues with the Internet. Parking next door is $26 per night. But that seemed like the going rate locally.

My wife took us there as a weekend getaway. We wanted to go somewhere close and we haven't been to the inner harbor in awhile. The pictures of the hotel looked nice so we thought we would give them a try. We were disappointed from the beginning. They don't have their own parking lot. You have to park in public... More

I wanted somewhere close to the inner harbor but didn't want to spend too much - the Sonesta was perfect! Cross the street in front and I was at the water. A short easy walk brought me all the way over to the National Aquarium. The hotel itself was nice - the jacuzzi was perfect for relaxing. I already booked... More
