To begin with, you've never seen uglier elevators. Yes, I know, ugly elevators never killed anyone but there's always a first time...
Second, the in-room internet runs at 1990s speeds, even though it is a hard-wired ethernet connection (that you pay extra for, I might add).
Take those two items away and you've got a fine convention hotel, very clean and quiet -- for street noise if you face the convention center as opposed to Pratt Street, though you can hear adjacent rooms. And convention-goers who don't get out much tend to make a lot of noise in their rooms.
It is also a very easy enclosed trip to the convention center, and is also near the light rail to the airport (only $1.60, speaking of 1990s), in case you are on a budget.
I went on hotwire for this and found the value to be outstanding -- a 4-star hotel at a 2-star price.
face the convention center -- much quieter.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for sharing your Hilton Baltimore experience on TripAdvisor.
We have shared your comments with our team and we apologize that you experience some opportunities with the internet in your room. Please know that we enjoy a beautiful and new hotel and It is unfortunate that you found our elevators a bit uglier; nonetheless they are indeed pretty safe.
While the Hilton Baltimore is also the only hotel connected by an enclosed, temperature controlled sky bridge to the Baltimore Convention Center, and we do hosts several City wide conventions. We are also glad that of our location, which is very convenient to Oriole Park at Camden Yards, 1st Mariner Arena, the Light Rail - serving Thurgood Marshall/BWI Airport, M&T Bank (Home of the Baltimore Ravens), University of Maryland Medical Center as well as many other attractions, businesses and nightlife in Baltimore, allows families to choose the Hilton Baltimore as a destination for fund and relaxation as well.
Thank you again for your feedback and look forward to discussing your stay in further detail if the opportunity allows itself.
