Everything near the Baltimore Convention Center was booked, so I chose this place because I was told it was convenient to the light rail service on a line directly to the Convention Center. The person who took my reservation said it was right across the street. It is not across the street. I had a very difficult time finding it from the Hunt Valley station. It was over a 15 minute walk, not the 1-2 minutes I was led to believe. Several places on the walk were very dangerous for pedestrians. I was almost hit by a car in the parking lot. People in the neighborhood were unfriendly.
When I arrived at about 10pm, there was a line of about ten people ahead of me. Staff appeared to be argumentative and defensive. The two people working stepped away from the counter and into the office several times. I was hungry, tired, and on edge, so complications with my room were not something I needed. The people ahead of me were clearly impatient and tired of waiting in line as well. Check-in took over a half-hour. When I finally reached the front of the line, they did not have my reservation on file, even though I had a printout with a confirmation number and a receipt that I was billed for the room in advance. This appeared to be a pattern with the guests ahead of me in line. Predictably, the clerk at the front desk went back into the office for several minutes. When she returned, she said that they still had rooms and that they would honor the rate I had already paid. However, because of several conventions, they were very close to being sold out.
After putting things away in my room, I went looking for something to eat. Again, navigating an ocean of asphalt, the choices were mostly franchise chains. I opted to buy something at a supermarket. My room did not have very many amenities. As others noted, the carpets are not cleaned very well. It had signs of being poorly maintained and was somewhat threadbare. The place may have seen better days, but now it is rundown.
In the middle of the night, a couple outside my room had a yelling and screaming argument. The hotel security came and made more racket threatening them and getting them to quiet down. There was a horror movie convention showing horror films all night in various rooms. Both nights I stayed, people were coming and going, shouting, running and slamming doors. It did not make for a good night's sleep and I was wiped out for meetings at the Baltimore Convention Center. I could not wait to leave.
