“Lucy Spellman from housekeeping made our stay a joy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

I love the Monaco. We had two reservations for two nights. I was really struck at how professional the housekeeping team was- really organized and friendly- Lucy Spellman was very helpful to us. The rooms are so clean.

Cudos to the Hotel Monaco in Baltimore! Attended a wedding last night at the hotel. The staff was very well trained and a lot of attention was paid to the guests. The food was good too! The historical building defines the space and care is given to provide information to the guests about the history of the building and the B & O railroad.

Boutique style hotel that was clean, well presented, and exceeded our expectations in most areas. Lovely old bank building with beautiful marble staircase and stained glass windows. Valet staff friendly and permitted us to stay extra hours without charge. Valet was only option at $38 per night. Little pricey. They upgraded our room before I made the request. Greeted us with free wine and pizza bites happy hour. Had free coffee and tea in AM but we missed it. Stored our luggage without a hitch. Helped with restaurant recommendations. Free WiFy for rewards members and ten dollars to spend on mini bar. Large jacuzzi tub in suite. Oversized bathroom with nice toiletries. Sitting room could use more light. Comfortable bed and stylish robes. Had to turn off the heat as noise was annoying and it was too hot. Neighborhood was OK in business district. Would have preferred something with more safe walking distance options. Had a nice hamburger in B&O restaurant attached. Very convenient as we were afraid to walk three blocks in darkness with only few people on the street. Twice the doormen remembered where we were going and asked us how we enjoyed it? Very impressive personal touch. Would return.

I love staying at Klimpton Hotels, they restore great buildings with modern rooms that don't seem cookie cutter. This stay was for 2 nights. I took full advantage -- the wine tasting is lovely by the large fire place. I came back later to read the paper by the fire. The fitness room has 3 treadmills, 2 or 3 ellipticals machines and 2 bikes, along with some weight lifting machines and free weights. Quite large for a hotel.

The room was large enough to do the in-room yoga both mornings after the visit to the fitness room.

Staff are very friendly and helpful. After 3 Klimpton hotels, I am a big fan!

Spent a night here in one of the large rooms with the soaking tub. Amazing service, great bar, and a beautiful and fun decor. Highly recommended for a quick getaway if you are from the area. Book a room on a high floor for a nice view.

Every Kimpton Hotel we've stay has been awesome, this is no different. Very friendly staff, clean building, comfy beds and very cool bathrobes in the closet. If you need a place, this is it... Look no farther. We were within walking distance to the inner harbor, arena and Camden Yards.

The hotel was set in a historic building that provided a good atmosphere. The room was OK though not as large or spacious as expected. Bathroom was huge though in comparison to bedroom. Nice fittings and fixtures and a good feel to the hotel. Downside was no coffee or tea making in the room at all and had to go down to the lobby to get this. Lots of spruking of products for sale but not as much provided in the room for free such as hot beverages. Location was good though a but of a desert for local restaurants. Most of the restaurants were a good walk or taxi ride away. Enjoyed the experience of staying at the hotel and would recommend it overall.
