We recently stayed at this Marriott while in Baltimore for a wedding held at the George Peabody library. I can't comment on the pricing, as we booked a room from a block rate (though friends of ours were able to get an even lower rate through Hotwire), but overall the hotel was satisfactory.
The hotel lobby/lounge area is very nice and the staff pleasant. Our room was clean and had a nice view—request a high floor when booking and you'll have a better chance of getting upgraded to a harbor view room. We booked a standard room and ended up on the 27th floor overlooking the Inner Harbor.
The bathroom is quite small, you have to maneuver around to get the door closed. Having two people in the bathroom is a VERY tight squeeze unless someone is in the shower. But all in all, manageable. We had a small refrigerator (which was a nice plus) and a safe in the room. In addition, there is a pretty large closet.
As a side note, we dined at the hotel restaurant for breakfast and had the breakfast buffet, which included made to order omelets, sausage, bacon, apple filled pancakes, a variety of fruit/yogurt/granola, bagels, oatmeal, etc. You're best off doing the buffet because by the time you order a menu item and a juice or coffee, you've surpassed the price of the buffet.
I would recommend this hotel to others. There are plenty of restaurants and things to do within walking distance, especially for those who do not have a car during their trip. I do know that valet services can tack on quite a bit to your overall bill, so that is something to be aware of.
