We stayed here in July 2013 for a quick overnight. Here are the quick pros & cons:
*Room size - very big. Impressive amount of space for a city hotel.
*Good shower/water pressure
*Good sized room safe
*Excellent hotel gym (3 or so treamills + ellipticals, 1 bike, weight machines, room for free weights). Very clean, tons of fresh towels.
*Really nice living room for the wine down happy hr. Good place to hang out if you're meeting people. Very chill atmosphere.
*Great location. Easy walk to Inner Harbor/Fell's Point even though it was like 95 degrees out.
*SUPER LOUD air conditioning/fan. Just so loud. And you can't turn it off or it gets hot. Kinda kept us up.
*Uncomfortable pillows - not what was requested in our Kimpton membership preferences. We could have done something about this, I realize, but by the time we realized it wasn't worth it.
*Kind of scrimped on bathroom products - only one soap, small shampoos for 2 ppl to share. Again, I realize we could have asked for more soap but that's hard to do when you're already in the shower. And nobody really wants to take the hand soap from the sink to shower with. The shampoos had weird tape on them that's not easy to get off once they're wet.
*Bathroom door was trying to be modern or something but it was this SUPER HEAVY sliding door and was really awkward to open once it was closed. Thought I was sorta stuck in there the first time I used it.
Overall, really nice hotel and we'd probably consider going back. Just a few small points they can work on if they want to step up their game.
