“Great Hotel - Awesome Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Perfect location. Close to everything in the inner harbor and surrounding area. Perfect room. Ms. Khadija was absolutely fantastic and her professionalism was a highlight, Royal Sonesta should be proud to have her on staff!
Our stay could not have been better.

Hello steve r,
Thanks so much for your 5-star review via TripAdvisor! We are very fortunate to have an amazingly attentive staff, so we appreciate your pointing out Khadija's efforts specifically. If you encounter Jennifer, Jonathan, Andy, Chris, Michele, or anyone else from our talented front desk agents, or others from the hotel, I am confident you will be met with the same warm welcome and high level of a willingness to serve. Please spread the word to your friends about the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court if they are planning a visit to Baltimore. Meantime, we hope to see you again soon!

My husband and I stayed there for a long weekend and it couldn't have been nicer!! The rates are normally $180/ night but they have a huge military/ government rate!! It was only a couple minute walk to everything on the harbor and the room was perfect view and very clean ...will always stay there when visiting Baltimore!!!

Hello Meganstair,
First, thank you so much for your service to our country. Our military rate is the least we can do to show our appreciation for your sacrifice. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and ringing endorsement for our Inner Harbor hotel. We are equally happy that you plan to stay with us again in the future. We eagerly await the opportunity to serve you once again.

My wife and I spent one night during a visit to John Hopkins Hospital. Our room was nice (my wife particularly liked the spacious bathroom) and the staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay again at this hotel.

We stayed at the Royal Sonesta Baltimore for a mini birthday vacation. The location is fantastic, right on the harbor, within walking distance to everything. The hotel is clean and comfortable. The staff was very attentive to details - they even sent a birthday cake to us because they heard it was my wife's birthday. If you can, request a harbor view room - well worth it.

This property is within walking distance of Camden Yards and the National Aquarium. We wanted a quick, affordable weekend getaway and we found our new favorite hotel in Baltimore. The Royal Sonesta Harbor Court went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable and offered a complimentary upgrade during check-in. We had spectacular views of the Inner Harbor, and enjoyed the close proximity to everything. Explorer's restaurant was also a nice treat for us - try the crab cakes! We look forward to our next trip to Baltimore - we will definitely stay at this property again!

Dear FamilyTraveler1231,
Thanks so much for your 5-star review of the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court! Our location is definitely something our guests value given we are so close to everything around the Inner Harbor. We agree that the crab cakes are great, but next time try our honey wings as they are prepared from honey from our own on-site apiary! Thanks again for your 5-star review and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Everything was perfect from the valet parking, doorman, reception including the beautiful harbor view. Everyone was friendly. The common areas are well appointed and the bedroom furniture was a cut above. The tile bathroom with robes was great. We will definitely stay here again. FYI - the hotel recently changed hands and reviews prior to sometime earlier this year are probably not valid.

Room Tip: Pay extra for the harbor view room. It's worth it.

Hello Rich,
We really appreciate your 5-star review! You are correct about the management change as Sonesta arrived here on May 31, 2012, so we are quickly approaching our one-year anniversary. However, this hotel has been a mainstay in the Baltimore area for decades. Soon, we will reveal plans for a major renovation which will return this amazing hotel back to its rightful places as one of Baltimore's finest establishments. We are committed to guests like you and to the overall experience of everyone who choose to stay with us. Thanks again for your 5-star review.

We recently stayed at Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore and it was great. This was our second stay. We were there because our daughter was graduating from MICA's Gradute School. When we arrived this time to check in, we were told that our harbor view room had been upgraded. We had no idea we were being put in a corner suite. We were blown away by the upgrade: full living room, marble bath with extra large garden tub, etc. Thanks for the great experience.
Watson, Raleigh, NC

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and sunny. Choose harbor view.

Dear Orvin W,
Thanks so much for your 5-star review! Also, congratulations on your daughter's graduation from MICA's Graduate School. Sometimes we are able to provide upgrades when we know a suite may go empty - just good business. We are happy we were able to provide the upgrade and hope you will consider us again if you decide to visit Baltimore again. Thanks again for the 5-stars!
