“Nice botique hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

We stayed at this hotel for two nights while visiting Baltimore. Our room was large and clean and the front desk staff was helpful. When we first arrived at the hotel, I thought the neighborhood looked dark and was wary of venturing out at night but I ended up really liking the Mt. Vernon neighborhood. We found a great restaurant, the City Cafe, just a block away from the hotel and plenty of lively bars and other restaurants a few blocks away on Charles Street. During the day, we went down to the inner harbor, which is about a 30 min walk from the hotel.

Before staying, we read some bad reviews about parking but we didn't have a problem getting space. We did have an issue with the toilet one day but we told the front desk on our way out to lunch and they had fixed it by the time we got back.

We'll definitely stay here again the next time we come to Baltimore.

Just spent three nights at the Brexton, and had a great experience. The staff was always kind and courteous. The building has wonderful character, and it's been renovated very nicely. Since the hotel has less than 30 rooms, the experience is a lot like staying at the home of a friend, rather than a generic hotel. An extremely charming boutique hotel. Highly recommended.

Visiting the University of Baltimore, I stayed at this hotel for two nights. It was most comfortable, quiet and conveniently located. The ambiance of this 19th century hotel is wonderful. The staff members were most attentive. The continental breakfast got my days off to a great start.

We came to B'more for a weekend and absolutely loved the Hotel Brexton. It embodied the history and old-world charm of the Mt Vernon area. The rooms were immaculate, well appointed and spacious, a stark contrast to NY hotel rooms. The hotel is in a quiet and safe area with easy access to fantastic restaurants and free public transport. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. I will be reccomending this hotel to everyone I know and urging them to visit Baltimore. Anyone interested in history, great food and eccentric characters will not be disappointed.

Very clean, upscale hotel. Breakfast was good and the rooms were very nice. Value for this area of Baltimore can't be beat. Parking is pretty tricky if have more than one car but we managed just fine.

we made a quick one-night trip to baltimore and discovered the hotel brexton via the hotel tonight app. the location & price were great, and we were pleasantly surprised by the charm & character of this lovely and well-restored historic property. we enjoyed chatting with the manager paul who was friendly & helpful, and loved our room. it was clean, large, and felt brand new. in-room keurig was a bonus, and the bathroom was spacious with good design, perfectly in line with expectations for a chic boutique hotel. we will definitely stay here again.

This hotel worked really well for us. It was an easy walk from the Lyric Performing Arts Center, where we saw a concert. Also an easy walk to good restaurants. The area seemed safe. We paid $25 to reserve a parking spot for the night, which worked well. You can also take your chances with street parking. The room was comfortable and we slept well on the bed. Best of all was the service. Melanie gave us the best service I have ever had in a hotel, including suggesting a restaurant (La Scala, it was amazing) in Little Italy, making a reservation for us, helping with a phone that didn't work, directing me to amenities, and - best of all - staying on the phone to give me turn by turn directions back to the hotel when we get lost. Service was also great the next morning, a different person was working then. A million gold stars for Melanie. If you visit Little Italy don't forget Vaccaro's for dessert - best napoleon I have ever had.
