“Great stay - except for the alarm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

This place is nice. It's not a luxury hotel, but the bed is a luxury hotel style bed - pillow top, super comfy, super soft sheets. But, the down-free pillows were terrible - really mealy and mushy. If we stay here again, I'm bringing my own towels. The rest of the room is just okay, the bathroom is fine but the shower/tub is just a plastic fitted tub with a cheap shower and curtain. The view over the harbor was really stunning and beautiful. We didn't eat breakfast there, as it's $24.95 for the buffet and it really didn't look good. A quick 3 minute walk to Panera Bread was great. Also, we realized later there's a nice looking Delicatessen on the inner harbor, I think we will go there for breakfast next time. The thing that kind of ruined our peaceful weekend stay was that the previous occupant of the room had the clock radio alarm set for 6:45 AM. Argh! Can you imagine, after having a nice meal out on the water on Saturday night, then to wakt up at 6:45 with a blaring alarm? It would be a good idea to remind the housekeeping staff to check that and turn it off between guests.

I loved everything about this hotel, the location, the common areas, the room, the breakfast buffet, but most important, the hotel staff. I found everyone to be extremely friendly and helpful. The area where the hotel is located is upscale. The Four Seasons is across the street. There are many restaurants, bars, and shopping very near. There is also a movie theater half a block down.

Room Tip: Definitely need to ask for a harbor view room.

I typically stay at Marriott properties and have to say that this is one of the nicest full service Marriott's I have stayed. Clean rooms, fantastic service, good restaurant and great location. I look forward to returning

The hotel has great views of the harbor and is in the heart of the waterfront area. Lots of great shopping and very nice restaurants within easy walking distance. Well appointed rooms with lots of natural light. I thought it was a bit noisy and could hear doors opening and closing all night but ear plugs fixed that the second night. Food was good and they have a nice coffee shop downstairs that has a little bit of everything. Staff was welcoming and helpful, room service was very quick.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the harbor.

This is a very nice Marriott that really could be branded more like a JW Marriott or Marriott Marquis. The location is great being walking distance to everything within the inner harbor and short distance to Fells Point. The location is in the nicer part of the Inner Harbor so it doesn't feel touristy (a very good thing) but it still is within easy walking distrance to the touristy part of the inner harbor. Hotel is right on the water promenade with incredible views of the harbor. I would definitely stay here again.

The main reason I put average for kids activities is because I don't recall there being any hotel sponsored kids activities (like you'd have at a Ritz). There was PLENTY to do for kids in the surrounding area though. The inner harbor area is a great spot to keep kids entertained.

We stayed at a room on the top floor with an unbelievable view of the Inner Harbor. The room was clean and well-kept. All staff were friendly. The location is unbeatable, as you can walk to the Aquarium and the pavillions right from the hotel. The brunch was unbelievable...anything you could want or think of, in the buffet, even soy milk! Desserts, made-to-order omelettes and pancakes, waffles, salads, and the usual muffins, yogurt, cereal, etc. Later in the morning lunch items were put out. The only thing this hotel lacked was towel racks in the bathroom, extra toiletries (there was only soap and strong-smelling body gel), and a fridge.

Room Tip: Ask for the top floor (23rd) with a view!

I've had my overflow from out of town guests and family stay here many, many times and they are never disapointed. The hotel is beautifully decorated, extremely clean, staff has always been attentive and professional. I love the Starbucks!!!

Room Tip: stay on the harbor side!
