I read the review "Dirty Sheet, Noisy Rooms and Fire Alarms", and would like to share another view.
This is the first time we have ever stayed at this hotel. We also stayed on the 7th floor, and we were also there for the fire alarm on the same date. Obviously, our hotel experiences were totally different!!!
Our room was clean and tidy and well decorated. (Had I found the room in a unclean condition, I would have assumed that there was an error, and the room had not been cleaned. I would have explained the situation, and requested another room. We have had this occur in other hotels; mistakes do happen).
I did hear the children downstairs from time to time, but solved that by going from the sitting room into the bedroom to view TV, or to use my laptop computer. (Problem solved) I do know that there were a number of children at the hotel who were taking part in a bike riding event, and a lacrosse event. My thought is that when you gather children in numbers, it is nearly impossible to contain all noise.
I thought the breakfast was well prepared, and offered a number of different choices, from made to order omelets, bacon, sausage, oatmeal, cereals of all kinds, boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, yogurt, pastries, bagels, etc., etc.
As for the fire alarm at 11:45, a fire alarm by virtue of what it is, is inconvenient. I would much rather have dealt with a fire alarm that the prospect of a real fire with no alarm. Over all, I think that the acting manager, Mr. Smith, handled it extremely well. We were awakened by the alarm going off, and then an announcement that we should evacuate the building via the stairs (no elevators), until we were given the all clear to return to the building. We followed those directions, and within about 15 minutes we were cleared to return to the room. Everything was orderly and fairly calm. I congratulate Mr. Smith on his handling of the whole situation! He kept his head during a difficult situation, and did a great job.
Over all, I was very happy with the entire hotel experience, from oure room, the front desk, the waiters in the restaurant, and people who handled the nightly reception, and the helpful information we received from everyone when we asked a question..........and we asked a lot of questions... :-)
If we return to Baltimore, this is definitely where we want to stay again!
