Recent stay in Baltimore; 5 days at Johns Hopkins with family friend. Location is hard to beat. Easy cab ride to hospital or the airport (BWI). Walk or cab to sights in the harbor. Wonderful restaurants in the area, even a Whole Foods and Starbucks! Biggest surprise was a multiplex on the same block.
Room was very nice, roof-top terrace on the 8th floor impressive touch.
Staff are helpful and know their stuff. Breakfast has plenty choice and "Happy Hour" is OK, could pass for a meal in some cases.
Excellent is hard to achieve in my book but this was not terribly far from it. Highly rec, especially if Hopkins is the reason for the stay. Wouldn't consider it a "romantic spot," but might work for a weekend in the city for two. Overall, a sure success.
