We arrived totally unfamiliar with the area as well as this hotel chain, we left enchanted with both. We had never been to Baltimore or it's Inner Harbor area but had heard about it from the news coverage. Since it was nearby we decided to visit the area. The Royal Sonesta was recommended by many others and since TripAdvisor has... More

I have recently been on a lot of business trips and stayed in a lot of hotels. One or two of the hotels were really quite awful, most were fine, but the Royal Sonesta was just a really excellent experience. I will need to go back to Baltimore next month, and I absolutely intend to stay there again. The location... More

This was my first trip to Baltimore. I was there for a meeting but the Royal Sonesta was the perfect place to hold meeting but enjoy the beautiful, peaceful view of the inner harbor. My room was lovely and had a window seat so I could work and enjoy the view at the same time. The staff was very helpful... More

We spent two nice days in Baltimore and we enjoyed our stay at Royal Sonesta. The staff at the hotel were very efficient, friendly and helpful. Parking is $26.00 per day, normal for any city. We parked our car on Saturday and never saw it again until Monday afternoon. We used the Water Taxi for transportation and we went to... More

The hotel room was very nice and we had the harbor view which was beautiful. The location is great! Unfortunately, only one elevator was working and this was a terrible inconvenience. We waited over 30 minutes for an elevator on Sunday morning at peak checkout time and ultimately had to carry our luggage down 4 flights of stairs! There were... More

Located conveniently in downtown Baltimore's "Inner Harbor" district but hardly a "Boutique" hotel as advertised on several web sites (though not Sonesta's). The hotel is quite large, and the rooms are large with large well equipped bathrooms stocked with L'Occitane toiletries and apparently recently renovated. However, the first room offered had a broken AC fan producing a sound like an... More

I will search our system for details of the room you stayed in so that our Engineering team can examine the issues with the light switches and electrical outlets. I apologize that your guestroom had these issues, and I really appreciate your taking the time to let us know about this so that... More

used to go every year and it was one of best . when sonesta took over service,elegance and amenities diminished. Suddenly no TVs in bathrooms, soap dispensers in showers and less furniture and amenities in bedrooms. I love this location and I hope sonesta will upgrade in future. note the holdover staff is still so wonderful and accommodating!

As you stated, dozens of team members have been with the hotel for 10 or more years, from the hotel's days as an... More

I have stayed at the Royal Sonesta for the past 3 wks for work. I will say the renovations are beautiful. However, I did experience some circumstances that made my stay less then stellar and Brittany at the Front Desk worked with me and went above and beyond to make sure my stay was returned to an enjoyable one.

We stayed at the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore for a conference and found it to have excellent in both food services and housekeeping. The location is right on the inner harbor, with the Spirit cruise ship and harbor walk across the street. The room was large with a nice bath and accessories. They provided robes and even an umbrella... More

My high school had their prom at this hotel and it was good. The food was a buffet and I do not like buffets especially if it is hotel food. It was mediocre at best. The rest of prom night was great! The ballroom we had dinner and danced in had a great view of the Inner Harbor. The room... More
