“Good price and location for lacrosse tournament”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

We needed a room for weekend games at area high school and this was closest and very reasonable. It also included continental breakfast. It was so quiet on weekend that we couldn't even find the entrance. Check in was easy. Room was fine although there's obstruction going on and debris stored in the hallways. Easy access to mt Washington village stores and restaurants below.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We have been staying here fore over 5 years, 2-3 visits per year. For almost 2 years, we have been told that there would be a fantastic property wide renovation.

What a disappointment! The oversized furniture makes the rooms feel much smaller and the bathrooms, which needed the renovation most of all, have been untouched.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the Octagon have a much better view and are quieter.

I attended a conference here. The property is wonderful. There is a lot of open space with seating inside and out, where you can just sit down and enjoy the view. Had a chance to take a guided tour of the property and learned the history of the place which was fascinating. We ate all our meals at the restaurants located on the property and had excellent meals. Plenty of places to choose from. Spent an evening in the cellar bar and that was fun. Originally was a speakeasy. Lots of history and character. Plenty of things for an entire family to do. Would go again and stay longer.

This conference center and hotel ,owned by Johns Hopkins University and managed by Aramark is located on beautifully landscaped grounds in the Mount Washington neighborhood in North Baltimore. It has a historic wing, the Octagon House,which now houses suites for conference goers, and two modern wings with 48 very comfortable well furnished rooms with outdoor balconies. There are several other buildings on the site. Parking was convenient in a lot or garage within short walking distance. Breakfast offerings were quite adequate and varied and offered in an open plan mezzanine. The only shortcoming here was that the breakfast area lacked adequate table space; several guests had to stand up while eating. This is a good deal at a modest price.

We stayed here for a swim meet. The grounds are very pretty and the rooms were comfortable. Cost was only $109 per night as we had a group rate. Breakfast was adequate with continental and Starbucks coffee and endless drinks and it went from 6:30 until 11:00. Walking distance to restaurants. Overall a lovely stay!

A great find tucked away in the woods in northern Baltimore. As its name indicates, it's primarily a conference center but serves as hotel for individual guests. We attended an event in the neighborhood, so the location was perfect. We were very pleased by the comfort of the room and the park-like setting. A bonus is the simple, but ample, self-serve breakfast. And you can't beat the price.

Although this place is near Highway 83, it's on a quiet, park-like campus of Johns Hopkins that was having a relaxing effect on all the guests I saw. The Aramark staff went out of their way to make us comfortable, including asking if we'd like an upgrade to a room with two queen beds - my original intent, but unavailable the day I booked. Our room was very pleasant and very clean and well appointed. Well lighted, nice balcony overlooking a splashing fountain, most perfect TV picture I've ever seen. The beds are absolutely wonderful. There are clusters of chairs and tables along the hallways on each floor that are perfect for small group conversations. Parking is easy and free. A shuttle's available to take you down the hill to half a dozen restaurants and a light rail station. A short walk over the highway bridge, and you're at Whole Foods. Drive a couple of miles, and you have access to Donna's Cross Keys for a pleasant dinner and Miss Shirley's Cafe for really wonderful breakfast and brunch. This would be a great place to have a small conference, reunion, or wedding.
