I recently stayed at this property to do a special trip for a young child (under 5). I have stayed at several Four Seasons and found this one to be in the middle of the pack -- not the best but not the worst either.
-- Even a basic room was very spacious, very clean and beautiful. I had a nice partial view of the harbor.
-- The pool was also gorgeous with a beautiful view -- the hotel pictures do not lie. The pool was also very kid friendly -- not deep and had a "bench" that runs around the perimeter. The weather was rainy but still the pool was heated and comfortable. The hot-tub was also very nice.
-- The service was also great with a couple of miscellaneous exceptions.
-- The location was very pleasant -- very safe at night. A very quick walk to starbucks, whole foods, and both nice restaurants and affordable restaurants. The movie theater nearby was a plus.
-- Right next to a water taxi stop, which was great if you happened to be there when the water taxi was arriving. There was also a regular taxi stand nearby.
-- Not super convenient to the inner harbor activities -- a healthy walk (especially with a kid in tow).
-- Although most of the staff was superb, but there were a few exceptions, such as a very inattentive pool attendant who looked shocked when I asked for a towel and didn't ever offer to set up a chair for us (as all of the other pool attendants had done for us). Not something I would normally care about, but at the prices they are charging, I should not have noticed this.
-- I also echo many of the comments by a previous reviewer: (1) smoky smell in the lobby from the restaurant; (2) rooms are very exposed to the adjacent office building, so you have to close the curtains; (3) Strangely stingy with the washcloths (I got only one the first day, and none after that); (4) charging for wi-fi seems ridiculous nowadays when you can get great free wifi at your average roadside motel.
-- The breakfast at Lamill Coffee (part of my packaged rate) had very limited breakfast options (although the coffee was very good).
I had a nice time and I chose the hotel primarily for the nice room and the pool, both of which met my expectations so on that front I had no regrets. But I feel like I paid too much for what I got. If the rate were $50-75 less, I would easily stay there again. But I would not pay the same rate again. I could have stayed at the Royal Sonesta or other perfectly nice hotels in the area for about $200/night. Was the Four Seasons better that those hotels? of course. Was it $150+/night better? Not so sure about that.
