We stayed while my wife was seeing doctors at Johns Hopkins. The hotel, location and service were all excellent. While it wasn't within walking distance of the hospital, we had no trouble accessing our car from valet parking. It was a very short walk to the Inner Harbor attractions.
The room was great and well worth what we paid. The furnishings were elegant enough that my wife made some interior decorating notes. As with many Klimpton properties, this is a very nice rehab of an historic building, in this case, the former B&O Railroad headquarters. The staircase between the first floor and the mezzanine lobby is impressive (though the stairs were a bit long to climb -- take the elevator). At the top of the stairs, a welcoming happy hour was a nice touch.
What puts a topper on the story is -- as usual -- a mishap on my part. I left behind my iPad charger, plugged into the wall. When contacted, the hotel manager went out of his way to retrieve this little overpriced item and ship it to me. Thanks, Joe!
