Beautiful, small boutique hotel with upscale elegance, a minutes walk from the convention center & inner harbor, they have a great staff & location couldn't have asked for better. a quick walk to everything in the inner harbor, just park your car and leave the keys until you head home.

From the desk, Jonathan helped us choose a seafood restaurant and made a reservation before we arrived. With smiles the staff met us at the door. Rarely did I ever open the door myself. The hotel is not sleek and new, but it has a grand manor inviting charm. Comfortable large rooms. Meer steps from the Harbor proper.

Stayed at the Royal Sonesta for Baltimore's Star Spangled Celebration and cannot say enough great things about this hotel. The staff - amazing! This hotel, as well as others, was completely booked for the event yet their staff treated us as though we were the only guests in the hotel. From the doorman, who called me by name every time...

In general an average hotel. Small issue with the room--bedside phone not functional, all pillows one foot thick so not practical for sleep. Bathroom is not vented--after the first shower the room was a sauna and no amount of A/C could make it better for the rest of the night. Room service took 45 minutes to deliver one pot of... More

Overall the hotel was very nice. The location by the inner harbor was awesome. Small things in room need to be checked better - bedside phone did not work, burnt out light bulbs. Value for price paid is great much more affordable than some hotels in the area

The hotel's name and ratings misled me. The manager disappointed me. I was not accustom to management being right and having the last say. What happened to the customer is always right. To avoid what I experienced, I will stay in hotels with worldwide names in the future.

The staff was friendly, the room was clean and the view was fantastic. Close to everything. If hotel was any closer to inner harbor, you would need to wear a wet suit. Only a few blocks from convention center and stadiums.

Thank you for the great comments--your review about nearly needing a wet suit made us smile! When choosing a hotel, for most people the two most important factors are knowing that you will receive great service, and having the confidence to expect that cleanliness is a top priority for that hotel. We really appreciate that you've shared your experience with... More

I was in town on business for three days and found this older but updated hotel perfectly located. It was a short walk from the Camden Transit stop to catch a rail downtown each day. The hotel is located directly across from the Inner Harbor. This location made for convenient entertainment and dining. The usual tourist restaurants and amusements are... More

Thank you for the detailed feedback about your experience staying with us! So many guests comment about our wonderful location for leisure, and in fact you discussed our proximity to some of the major Charm City attractions both along and away from the Inner Harbor. But as you suggested, we have a great location and ideal amenities for business travelers... More

Great staff. Can't go without mentioning James who helped with baggage and getting us a car to Fells Point rather than walking to the water taxi. Furnishings do need to be updated or repaired though. There was a chair with the upholstery pulled off and my bed had a board between mattress and box spring.

This is our second stay at the Sonesta. We were here last year to visit colleges and this time we came to drop off my daughter. Although our room last year needed a renovation, this year we were upgraded to harborview jr. suites that seemed more like apartments with gigantic bathrooms. The rooms were in good shape, the views were... More

Katherine, thank you for sharing details about your recent perfect stay with us! Our amazing team set the tone for a great stay by upgrading your accommodations, and we have to agree, the Junior Suites are indeed amazing.
