We chose the Homewood Suites, Baltimore by chance and ended up being very pleasantly surprised. Our primary objective was a moderately priced, quality hotel, within easy walking distance to the Inner Harbor area, especially to the National Aquarium. The distance to the attractions was much shorter than they appeared on a map, due to walking paths & foot bridges that crossed the various piers. The hotel itself was awesome. The suite was huge, clean and well appointed including a full kitchenette area. The bed was comfortable. The hotel staff were helpful & a pleasure to interact with. The breakfast was decent, when compared to your typical free, continental breakfast. While we didn't use the "fitness center" (aka MAC), we did visit it. It turns our the center is actually a huge, paid membership fitness center (free to hotel guests) featuring every conceivable piece of equipment, classes (e.g. spin, yoga) and trainers. If I had the time, I would definitely have used the facilities. I would definitely stay here again.
