“Clean, Modern and Accommodating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2005

I booked a reservation at this hotel after reading the reviews here, plus it was a great deal for $79/night.

I went to Baltimore to visit my husband who is at school at Ft. Meade. I traveled alone. The cab ride from BWI to the hotel was $20.80. I arrived at 2am and I realized I was 'buzzed in' because they lock the lobby after 1am which I thought was a nice safety precaution. I was pleasantly surprised (like other reviewers) by the more modern decor and the amenities: the cafe, the lounge areas, computer workstations (with complimentary internet hookup which is also in the room), full bar, plasma screen TV and even a fireplace.

I checked into my room which was also nicely decorated. Lots of deskspace, good sized TV and a refrigerator. The bathroom was very clean (at least to the naked eye). Lots of clean towels, complimentary 'Physique' shampoo and a nice showerhead with changing pulses. And the fastest flushing toilet I've ever seen in my life. I don't know how much the regular movies were (at the time Oceans 12, Million Dollar Baby, Hitch, etc.), but i can tell you that the naughty movies are $13.99 max.

The continental breakfast (bagels, toast, fruit, cereal) was about $6. The expanded breakfast (adding eggs, bacon, waffles) was about $10. I got there at 9:30am so it was sort of picked through and lukewarm. The lobby 'market' is open at all times. A decent sandwich is $5.95 and a liter of Aquafina was $3. They also have Haagen Daz ice cream and Starbucks Coffee brewing at the bar.

The indoor pool is a small square and the jacuzzi looked a little uninviting, but I wasn't there to swim. The gym was more spacious than i thought and had some good aerobic equipment in it.

Expect to pay for the taxi rides if you don't have a car. For 2 people to Arundel Mills $12. For 4 to Inner Harbor $35. (Both trips, we used EZ Cab)

This place must be great for business travelers. I went for leisure and though it's not romantic per se, it was very, very comfortable. Staff was polite, housekeeping was efficient, air-conditioning worked. It was good.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2005

We (family of 4 with teenagers) stayed here for 2 nights, May 28-29th. The price ($79 and $99 + taxes per night) was a good value. The room itself was nice, it had a mini-frig and a microwave. The bathroom was very nice-large and clean. The front desk employees were very helpful with directions, suggestions and advice. There is NOTHING in the immediate area, so if you are looking for restaurants, you will have to drive a ways. The $7 breakfast "all you can eat buffet" is nothing more than what you usually get as a free expanded continental breakfast at most hotels--is is NOT worth the price. As a result, we grabbed something on the road.
Overall, I would probably not stay here again, even though the hotel itself is nice. It is too isolated and if I had known more about the area, I would have chosen another hotel.

If you have business at the nearby NSA compound, this is the place to stay. It is very close, convenient and caters to business travelers. If you are in the area for an extended visit however, there is nothing to see or do here so you'd be better to stay in the Arundel Mills area.

I had a short stay at this hotel in Oct. 2004. The hotel is very new. The room was very comfortable and clean with a nice, large bath, plush carpet, great drapes to keep the light out and nice furnishings. The desk in the room was great and the style of the entire hotel is better than you'd expect. The lobby area has a liquor/coffee bar and lots of places to sit and read, do work, etc.

The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. I highly recommend it for business travelers.

This is a wonderul hotel. The bathrooms are spectacular with granite countertops and the decor is really, really nice. Very modern decor and the hotel is virtually brand new. Fridge in every room. Nice (although somewhat small) indoor pool. Hot tub near the pool. Nice fitness center and they even have elliptical machines (don't see that much except in very posh places).

Front desk staff is very very friendly (sometimes they get a little bogged down but usually if a line forms for people checking in they call someone else over or the manager comes to help out).

Nice lounge with lots of seating, a fireplace and flat panel TV next to the small bar. They have the courtyard cafe for eating (and room service). They also have the little store area for drinks and snacks.

There are nice outdoor lounging chairs and bistro tables both off the lounge, in the back of the hotel, as well as near the entrance. Good for folks who like to sit outside and read, etc.

There are drink and ice machines on each floor. The elevator bay and vending area is away from all rooms so there are no rooms directly across from the elevator. We even stayed in a room once that was around the back side of the elevator bay but we never heard any noise so the walls seems to be pretty solid and sound proof.

It's in a quiet neighborhood, mostly business around so there's no restaurants within walking distance but it's mostly a business hotel anyway so most people just eat there.

I highly recommend this place!
