PROS. Yeah, the building is luxurious and the rooms are very spacious, clean, with great beds extra towels, etc. Breakfast restaurant is nice but expensive and not usually included with room rates it seems. * The warm pool and jacuzzi (close 8pm) as well as gym and other sporting areas seem really great for a visit with slack time (we...

This is an amazing, gorgeous old hotel on the Harbor of Baltimore. Breakfast was delicious, room was very nice and clean, everyone we met that worked in the hotel was beyond nice and helpful. The chocolate dipped strawberries/wine was an added treat.

I honestly would rate the Royal Sonesta tops in Baltimore from our weekend there.....the wedding was elsewhere and although very lovely, the room we visited did not compare with ours at the Harbor Court.....

Thank you for sharing your experience staying at the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore during the weekend of the wedding you attended. We appreciate the great comments about our guestrooms--at 420 square feet, our rooms are as large as the suites at some other hotels! Also, no guestrooms in our hotel are across the hall from one another, which means... More

Our weekend stay at this hotel was quite memorable since its inner harbor location afforded incomparable day as well as night views from our fifth floor room. The rooms were spacious and well appointed as one would expect given deluxe prices. Internet access was free, but I was surprised that the most available electrical charging outlet was under a desk;... More

The hotel is lovely and it has been renovated fairly well. The housekeeping staff needed to be a little more on top of things, but other than that the overall experience was great. I would stay again.

To experience the Baltimore Harbor this was the place to stay. Friendly staff, great buffett breakfast at the Exployer, and a short walk across the street to the Harbor. We stayed in the condo part with breath taking views. The older charm of this hotel blended well with the 200 Star Spangle Spactacular we were enjoying.

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.
