“Good value and comfort!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

Stayed 2 nights in one of the 2 bedroom suites, holding a family of 5 comfortably. The rooms were all very clean and the two bathrooms made morning rituals far more efficient. On our weekend stay, the property was quiet at night, affording a good night's sleep. Breakfasts were pretty standard fare, but included with the price and ample parking was free of charge. There is a hotel van, but it is restricted to a 5 mile radius, so it cannot be used to reach the airport (BWI), which is about 15 miles distant. Only one eatery within walking distance (Gadsby's) but you'd best avoid it. Columbia has some good restaurants, reachable by car. Our check-in reception was unusually friendly. Downsides: low res tube TV's in the rooms and a somewhat dated interior, otherwise a very solid value.

Room Tip: The location is surrounded by corporate offices, so nights tend to be very quiet.

I have stayed at the Sonesta in October, December and January. I stay here when visiting with my daughter. Danielle at the front desk is an outstanding example of what customer service is all about. The rooms are clean and comfortable and everyone is very friendly and accommodating. I would recommend this hotel to anyone

Attended annual holiday gathering with adult daughter and son-in-law. Exactly what we needed at great price. Got a suite with two separate bedrooms with their own baths and a common kitchen / living space. Rooms clean and comfortable. Breakfast was fine with scrambled eggs sausage bread / bagels /muffins, fruit, yogurt and cereal available (real plate and silverware if eating downstairs or plastic if taking back to room).

Very good value. Not a new place, but beds are awesome, staff is friendly, especially Miriam, and clean as can be. Breakfast is very good and the T-Th dinners are also good. Everyone here is friendly and professional. Will definetly stay again.

Room Tip: Don't expect a five star for a 3&1/2 star.

One of the best hotels ever for the price we paid! We stayed for 4 nights. This hotel is clean, attractive and well maintained. We booked a suite with 2 rooms - a bedroom, very large bathroom, a sitting room with pull-out couch, and a full kitchen with full sized fridge, small stove, sink, microwave, toaster, coffeemaker and dishwasher. There was a large TV in each room with a DVD/VHS player in the sitting room. Also included was an iron and ironing board. We were VERY happy with the room, and the service - but best of all was the free breakfast buffet each day! This included eggs, sausage, bacon, home fries, toast, bagels, fruit salad, homemade waffles, juices, cereals, pastries, etc. Not a cheap layout - but all for free. The only concern was that on some days we had to wait a few minutes for a table. They also offer a mini-dinner buffet on Tues, Wed, Thursday - also free. Our icemaker in the fridge stopped working and we called for repairs. It was fixed within an hour. They have a basket ball court and a nice outdoor pool - but it was closed for the winter. There was always a lovely fire burning in the lobby. They have a small fitness room with nice equipment. They also have a small store for food, drinks and toiletries, etc. The staff is friendly too. They even allow pets. How much did all this cost us?? Only $62 a night! Unbelievable. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who stays in the Baltimore area. Can't beat it.

We had a great stay here. We have 2 dogs that were welcomed without any problems. All the employees were very helpful and friendly. I will stay here again when I come to visit my family in Maryland. Very good price and pet rates. Very clean. The room was big and had a place to cook and a big refrigerator.
