“Hotel Brexton”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

12 of us travelled to Baltimore and stayed here for 2 nights before getting a Royal Caribbean cruise for 12 nights.

We had great communication with Paul the manager before our stay. We orgsanised the rooms for 12 adults along with transport from the airport, and transfers to & from the cruise terminal.

Upon arrival to the hotel there was wine and snacks- a very welcome treat after such a long trip.

All the staff were friendly and helpful and the driver were very patient, especially when loading and off-loading over 24 cases into the vans.

The hotel itself is very clean and tidy- we were upgraded to a suite on the top floor which was very spacious and lovely! The breakfast room was small, however due to jet lag we were up at 5am and therefore didn't have a problem getting a seat!

Room Tip: No bar or restaurant, but city café was just a few minutes walk which served great food!

I'm a DC resident, so I've never stayed overnight in Baltimore until my trip last week. Staying for the weekend at the Brexton was the perfect way to enjoy a beautiful spring weekend. Paul set us up in Room 602, on the top floor. We had a terrific view of the city. The room was commodious and yet not too big. It managed to feel both cozy and open. We had the option of opening the blinds to let in the sun or close them completely for sleeping. No cumbersome hotel drapery to manhandle. The only quibble with the bathroom was the tiny shower and the bowl sink on the vanity, which was awkward to use. The best feature of the room, however, was that it was completely quiet, resulting in a restful night's sleep. The Mt. Vernon location is ideal for weekend visitors, as there is so much to see within walking distance. We walked around the corner to Milk & Honey for brunch on both Saturday and Sunday morning and did a tour of my daughter's campus, MICA, on Saturday. Saturday night's dinner at Tapas Teatro in Station North was easily walkable. The staff was very courteous and attentive. Thanks for a great weekend.

Room Tip: Just ask, the staff will do their best to help.

My travels bring me to Baltimore often and I always stay at the Brexton. Paul and his very gracious staff will always make you feel welcome and go out of their way to make your stay a pleasant one. The hotel and the rooms are kept spotless. The beds are comfortable and the hotel is very quiet. The hotel is small so if you are looking for a fitness center and room-service food you will be better suited to staying at a chain hotel. But if you are looking for a restful night's sleep and a consistently high quality experience, you will make the Brexton your first choice. The Brexton helps to make my frequent traveling experiences more comfortable which is why I give the Brexton my highest recommendation.

This renovated hotel retained its historic spiral staircase and old window moldings, yet had an updated bathroom and an in-room keurig coffee-maker. We stayed in room 304 which had the bathroom located in the old turret, a nice touch, and was quite spacious. The hotel was not full so parking in the front designated hotel spaces was not a problem.
Milton was a very accommodating manager and was willing to hold our luggage after we checked out and give us great restaurant suggestions.
The breakfast was continental, nothing special but served its purpose. And there was a high tech coffee machine with many options.

Our party of 12, from the UK, stayed at this Hotel 30th and 31st March Hotel and a further 5 family members joined our party and stayed there for the 31st as well. We loved the Hotel, the rooms were lovely and the location suited us very well. $8 in a taxi down to inner harbour.

The Manager Paul helped in every way to make our visit go well and kept in constant touch by email to ensure we had the type of rooms we needed and that the organised transport had all the right flight times. The staff that we met were always helpful and pleasant. Paul even organised transport on the day we returned from our cruise so that we could spend the afternoon at the inner harbour before our evening flights to the UK. The drivers he used were very helpful, especially as we had so much luggage to take in and out!

If we ever had the opportunity to return to Baltimore we would definitely stay at the Hotel Brexton.

Room Tip: Top floor suites are large with little road noise. Nice decor throughout.

I like older buildings and rather than a chain hotel in the Inner Habor, thought the Hotel Brexton looked an interesting place to stay in Baltimore.I was also travelling in and out by Amtrak and thought it would be handy to the station. Sure enough the station is a 15 minute walk away (though I imagine the taxi drivers at Penn would also be delighted to take you on a five minute journey..).
As to the hotel experience itself the room was a good size as was the bathroom. Everything was clean and comfortable. I was up on a higher floor at the back and heard no noise at all.In fact it was surprising how peaceful it was, given two major roads run pretty close by. The staff were friendly and helpful.
One of the guidebooks described Mount Vernon as "a mosaic" which may have been a nice way of saying "don't have to walk too far in any direction to find a derelict building" I'm not sure.
However while I wasn't out late at night, I felt totally comfortable walking around on my own in the area.In fact I found everyone in Baltimore very friendly!
The only down side might be the breakfast.The dining area is limited which means the food out is limited too.If you were a big eater it might be a concern.But I'm not so it wasn't !
All in all a very peaceful stay in an interesting building.Would certainly stay again if in Baltimore.

A wonderful stay in a wonderful place! Paul, Eboni, and Milt were fantastic. They helped in every way. We left our car parked and walked, took the free bus, or rode the light rail. We reserved parking several days before we arrived, and enjoyed discovering Baltimore.
