I booked this hotel through Hotwire at the last minute - a bit of a risk - but since I was only staying one night and planned to spend little time at or in the hotel, I figured what the heck. I arrived early (noon-ish) expecting to have them hold my luggage until early evening. I was pleasantly surprised when told they had a room available immediately. Once I entered the room I immediately began to regret that I would only stay one night and spend little time in the hotel. The room was a mini-apartment with an eat-in kitchen, living room with fireplace, French doors to the bedroom with a king size bed and another fireplace. The balcony of my room overlooked a garden area. The plush terrycloth robe was a nice touch and the bed was quite comfortable.
Just a few blocks off the inner harbor (something I might have originally thought was a minor negative turned out to be quite positive when I realized those on the harbor would be getting fog horns all night due to the weather). The atrium was stunning, the staff were efficient, capable and friendly. I would highly recommend this hotel.
