We had a great stay at the Admiral Fell Inn last week. We knew we did not want to stay in a cookie-cutter chain hotel in the Inner Harbor, and ran across the AFI on the web. The hotel is very quaint and well-maintained (some reviewers noted that it was "old," but it is historic, i.e., has character, w/boutique-quality touches). Our room had two double beds and was just perfect for 2 adults and 1 child. We requested a room on the quiet side, which I would recommend if you're concerned about noise (esp. on weekends). It was super quiet (4th floor, Rm 418) and had no issues with the room. I can't say enough great things about all of the staff, particularly Roland, one of the shuttle drivers, the valets (would recommend just using valet for your stay since everything is in walking distance and/or you can use the hotel shuttle or Charm City Circulator or water taxi), the folks at the front desk and the gentleman who does the Ghost Tour.
I would recommend the Ghost Tour, as it's not the expected cheesy set of ghost stories, but instead gives you the background of the area, the hotel itself (made up of I believe 5-7 historic buildings), the Fell family, etc. We made sure to go down Shakespeare Street to see the Fell Family burial area after learning about it from the guide (I wish I could remember his name, he was wonderful). After the tour you get a complimentary drink at the pub (great bartender).
We did not eat at the hotel, as there were a lot of great places nearby (Bonaparte Breads, Riptide by the Bay, Papis Tacos were all yummy), but the pub was cute.
Again, I just can't get over how friendly and helpful all the staff were -- genuinely nice people, not just faking it for their job. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone heading to Fell's Point.
