From our first enoounter with the valet staff to the front desk to housekeeping, we knew friendliness and attentiveness were inherent to all who work at the Royal Sonesta. Carmen checked us in and immediately helped us become familiar with the area, offering us great tips for food and getting around. James in valet always had the biggest smile and... More

I stayed here for a night since I was hosting a conference there during the week for my job and one particular night I needed to be up early to set up AV. I didn't really put much thought into the room I selected since I am local and this was for work, but to my surprise the room was... More

First of all, thank you for the wonderful comments about our Premier Suite! We have 12 such suites, and each offers amazing views of the Inner Harbor via two floor-to-ceiling bay windows. Each suite of this type (yes, we have larger corner suites as well!) affords 700 square feet of luxury, plus the amazing bath that you described that features... More

This hotel was beautiful and very clean. The beds in the room were very comfortable. The staff was very courteous and accommodating. The hotel is right off the harbor which was very convenient to all the shops and restaurants. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Baltimore.

The hotel staff and the overall aesthetics of the hotel was pleasantly pleasing. Although the hotel is centrally located at the harbour with crowds of tourist, the hotel offered a feeling of tranquility. Thanks Royal Sonesta for my stay!

We are pleased to hear that you found serenity from the hustle and bustle of downtown life in our Inner Harbor oasis! Several aspects of our property bring a certain level of calmness and peace: at 203 guestrooms and suite, we are not a "big box" hotel like many of the hotels nearby; our courtyard in the center of the...

We were in town visiting for an anniversary party and wanted to stay right in the Baltimore Harbor. Everyone was very accommodating. The room was very nice and we had a beautiful view of the harbor. Would definitely stay here again.
