This hotel gives you a luxurious ambiance at a reasonable price with the most comfortable king bed and cushy mattress we ever slept on. We opted for the less expensive courtyard view room so were stunned at its immense size, comfortable chairs and features. It was easily the most comfortable hotel stay we ever enjoyed and I truly enjoyed the... More

This hotel is aging, but gracefully. The carpets and furniture need to be updated, but the property is being kept up by an attentive staff. Location is just a couple of blocks from the heart of the Inner Harbor. If you want to be right in the action, this may not be a good match for you. If you are... More

Great location at the inner harbor. The harbor front rooms have a beautiful view. However, the "Bee Garden" provides a nice view for the interior also. I was within walking distance of so many great attractions (Science Center, Aquarium, restaurants, and shops)! The staff were awesome; very friendly, helpful and so outgoing!

What a treat, going with no expectations, the hotel was clean, staff friendly and helpful, and the location was perfect, close to everything the harbor has to offer, but far enough away to be calm and quiet. After a long hot day of walking it was a pleasure to swim at the pool and rest and the large comfortable room.... More

We had done our research before staying at Royal Sonesta, so once we arrived at the Inner Harbor and realized how close it was, we decided to stay. The hotel is very nice and the location is wonderful. Due to the time we arrived, we stayed in a room with double beds and no harbor view. This did not make... More
