Nice hotel located next to the inner harbor within walking distance of Camden Yards. Overall great hotel with a very friendly staff. James who is one of the valets was especially good. The only issue that I had was the turnover of housekeeping by 3:30pm our room was not refreshed. Otherwise great visit

I just got to experience the hotel again for the 1st time in a few years and was amazed ! There is now REAL Luxury in Baltimore and it has an amazing view of the Inner Harbor.

We really appreciate the glowing comments about the hotel's new look and new vibe following the April 2015 completion of our $10 million renovation! The property has received rave review consistently, but your review is telling because you experienced the hotel before and after the renovation so you understand just how far we've come. Thank you for commenting that the... More

Have been to the Inner Harbor many times. Stayed at all the big name hotels right in the harbor. Was on our way back from South Carolina and decided to stay a few nights in Baltimore. Used Hotwire..booked and the hotel was revealed. I had seen it numerous times, but never stayed. The hotel is very well kept, big rooms... More

Thank you for the kind words about your recent experience staying with us at Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore! We indeed have the largest guestrooms anywhere in the Inner Harbor neighborhood, at 420 square feet, and our recently completed $10 million property renovation has granted a much more modern look and style throughout the property.

Don is one of many staff members who truly has a gift for connecting with our guests and providing memorable service.

Beautiful Hotel and room. Located across the street from inner harbor. Short walk to National Aquarium. Shorter walk to Science Center. Restaurants nearby. Aquarium package is a great deal. It included room, valet parking and tickets to aquarium. Felt safe but did return to hotel before dark. Family friendly.

Thank you for the warm comments about your recent stay at our Inner Harbor hotel! We are indeed located along the banks of the Inner Harbor (just across Light Street) and therefore we are within easy walking distance from all the major attractions. In addition to the National Aquarium and Maryland Science Center, we are within steps of the Ripley's... More

I reserved a courtyard view room on July 4th 2015. Wanted to see the inner harbor for the fireworks. When I got into the room I had a view of the side of the building next door. Went to hotel lobby to find out why. we were told that the hotel was fully booked for the night and there was... More

Michelle, thank you for bringing this matter to our attention, as did my team at the Front Desk. You indeed reserved a Courtyard guestroom, and we indeed switched you to a Lee Street guestroom. We apologize for having to make the switch, but we regularly do switch those two room types interchangeably, as they are priced the same. However, your... More

My daughter, her two children and I stayed at the Sonesta and it was wonderful. We had a harbor view which I would totally recommend and chose valet parking another high recommendation.

The Royal Sonesta is so great, I didn't want to leave. In fact, one of the housekeepers caught me saying goodbye to the room as I checked out! The hotel is just a short walk from the ballpark, the aquarium, and the science center, but in the end, we liked it so much, we barely left! The 7th floor is... More

Very nice, large rooms. Hotel recently updated. Bar is small and bartenders weren't all that accommodating considering the cost of their drinks and food, otherwise a great place to stay at In the inner harbor.

Please note that in late June 2015 there was construction work in the hotel that impacted my room between the hours of 9 - 5. It was loud and annoying, but it also got me out of my room and moving a little quicker, which is a blessing. With that being said, the rooms were beautiful (reason for the noise,... More
