“Magical”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

This review is long overdue. Until now, I can't forget my lovely stay here after a minor surgery at Hopkins. I opted to stay in this boutique hotel to recuperate after a procedure. ( I dread hospital accommodation). My room was extremely quiet facing the inner courtyard with lots of sun. The staff were very helpful and unintrusive, allowing my private nurses to stay with me until I "discharged" ( checked out). I would love to stay here again and again. It feels like home away from home.

My wife and I found this hotel to be top notch, and centrally located. It also was very quiet. The hotel shuttle provides free service to Little Italy, and to the inner harbor. We took advantage of their upgrade special and had concierge help (Joshua, a very nice and knowledgeable man) to plan activities in advance. The bottle of vino provided in our room was nice, and helped us celebrate our anniversary. One of the thrills was having a Panera Bread sandwich, a glass of wine, and a slice of Italian cake from Piedigrotta Bakery in our room!

We recently had a 2 day stay here. This is a great hotel to stay at when visiting Baltimore. You are near Fells Point, water taxi is nearby , and best of all, there is no parking fee. The breakfast provided is fine . Also, there is a shuttle service provided for trips to the Inner Harbor area. The shuttle bus driver that we had was a real gentleman. Also, request a court view or harbor view room.

We couldn't agree with you more about our location. Fell's Point is filled with so many wonderful restaurant, bars, and shops. One could truly stay occupied for quite some time! We're glad to see that you appreciated the breakfast provided. We know it's the most important meal of the day, so we try to make it as fresh and hearty as possible!

This was a perfect place to stay for a long weekend visit to Baltimore. Situated right on the wharf, close to everything, yet quaint and quiet. We had a garden view which was so peaceful and relaxing (much better than the street views on the other side of the hallway). The fresh breakfast each morning included many assorted fresh fruits, oatmeal, assorted breads, bagels, cakes and juices. Yogurt and cottage cheese also complimented the array of breakfast selections. We enjoyed talking with other guests which eating each morning. The wine and cheese offering each evening is also superb. This inn has a three thumbs up from me !!!

pixel45, we'd like to thank you for writing us a phenomenal review and we'd also like to thank you for choosing to stay with us during your time in Baltimore. It's delightful hearing that you had an exceptional experience while staying at our hotel.

As you mentioned, our garden view rooms are definitely a beautiful scene to observe. We do have many patrons that prefer our harbor view rooms, however, some do not like the foot traffic which occasionally passes by. Both views are equally beautiful, but ultimately it comes down to preference!

Stayed here for the first time at the end of March 2013.
We found the hotel a unique experience as it is far different, much better than the 'normal' hotels you stay in.
The interior brick decor of the hotel give it a nice feeling as did the large bedroom we stayed in. We had a corner kingsize bedroom facing the harbour, but we did not see much of this as many people walk past your bedroom window as there is a boardwalk around the outside the hotel, so we mainly had our window slats closed most of the time. So I think it was pointless having a room with harbour views, maybe go with a courtyard view which would give you more privacy.
The bathroom was on the large side, plenty of space with the shower over the bath.
As the hotel is situated in Fells Point, there are many restaurants and pubs within minutes walking distance.
Breakfast was continental buffet style, with choices of cereal, fresh bread and complimaints.
We enjoyed our stay and would most certainly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Would consider courtyard room next time as the harbour view rooms have a public boardwalk on the oth...

David M, we'd like to thank you for leaving us a great review and we'd also like to thank you for choosing to stay with us during your time in Baltimore. We’re very happy to hear that you had a wonderful experience while staying at our hotel.

From reading over your review, we saw you were displeased by the visibility into your room from the bedroom window. This would certainly be one of the caveats to these harbor view rooms. Depending on the season, the foot traffic around the boardwalk is much more prevalent. If the foot-traffic outside was an issue, we definitely suggest one of our rooms facing the courtyard. You'll get an equally beautiful view!

Just returned from a 3 day stay at Hendersons. The Inn is lovely and the room was very nice. We had a corner harbor view. Loved the brick and the room decor. As others said when you open the louvers on your windows you have the traffic on the boardwalk and people can look into your room. It did not bother us. The bed was very comfortable but the pillows were firm foam and to my husband and I very uncomfortable. We asked for feather pillows and were given other pillows but they were synthetic down not feathers. They were also hard. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Raymond and Greg are exceptional as were the shuttle staff. Breakfast was good for a continental breakfast. Great Banana Bread and an array of fresh fruits. The location can't be beat close to bars and restaurants. All in all it was a good experience and if we were in the area again would definitely consider staying here.

Room Tip: Corner room has the harbor view on two sides.

lindafromNJ, we want to thank you for choosing to stay with us during your time in Baltimore and we'd also like to thank you for writing us a nice review. It always makes us happy hearing back from satisfied guests. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at our hotel.

Upon reading your review, we saw you mentioned that you had a corner room. We always recommend a corner room when available, specifically because of the beautiful harbor view that you get on both sides. We'll be sure to pass along the kind comments you made to our staff as well. They constantly go above and beyond to ensure that everything is always perfect for our patrons.

We have passed on your feedback about our pillows to our management team. Guest comfort is a top priority to us and we're going to see what can be done to possibly get a larger variety of other pillow types. This will ensure that we have many different kinds of pillows for our patrons to choose from.

If you are looking for a great place to stay in walking distance to Fells Point, Canton, Inner Harbor, and Little Italy, this is your place. Staying in the small hotel provides a unique experience. The staff is awesome, the rooms are amazing, and the ability to walk out the door to dine, drink or walk the beautiful waterfront is a huge selling point.
