We stayed one night at the Hotel Monaco and were very satisfied. The hotel is in a beautiful historic building. We were visiting both the Inner Harbor and Camden Yards, and the hotel is just a short walk to both. Nice area, and we had no concerns about safety walking in the area of the hotel even at night. We travelled with our teenage daughter and her friend, and stayed in one of the rooms with the 2 double beds and 2 bunk beds. This was perfect, as the girls liked having their own space with a TV and xbox. This hotel is the cleanest that I have ever experienced. There is free wifi if you sign up for the kimpton rewards type program ( it's free to join). The free wine hour in the evening is nice.
There were a few things that could be improved- an inroom coffee maker is not provided unless you ask for it- I think this should be a standard amenity. Also, there is an in room fridge, with mini bar, but the items are ridiculously expensive. 6 dollars for a bottle of water, 5 dollars for a very small bag of chips, 40 dollars for facial cream, etc. Excessive pricing even compared to the usual high prices of these items in other hotels.No soda or snack machines are available in the hotel. I found it somewhat annoying that upon entering the hotel lobby, there is no sign or anything directing customers to go up to the next floor to check in. There is a reception desk in the entrance area that was not staffed, and although hotel employees were standing around chatting with each other, no one could be bothered to direct us to check in one floor up until we interrupted their social hour to ask.
