“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Nice, clean room with modern decor and typical amenities. Plenty of living space but little storage space. Courteous and professional staff. Best part is the location, as everything to see and do is within walking distance.

Stayed here the other night and I was very impressed. The hotel is located right in the middle of everything. Camden Yards, National Aquarium and a vast selection of resturants are a stone throw away. My only complaint is that the pillow is a weird size. If you make the slightest movement, your head will fall off. Other that, it was soft as a cloud.

Room Tip: If you plan on parking your car and leaving it there, park at Arrow Parking (204 E Lombard) around t...

This hotel has great views. The beds are extremely comfortable and the rooms are somewhat remodeled. Overall, the hotel needs to be updated based on the price point of $200+ per night.

In addition, the service was less than desirable. I requested two wake up calls and only received one. When I inquired about the reason for not receiving the second call, the concierge was very nonchalant about explaining the mishap.

If you can't find a special for less than $150 a night, it isn't worth it.

Excellent location, helpful staff. Rooms large and very well appointed. Across the street from Baltimore's Inner Harbor district. About 6 blocks from Camden Yards (baseball) or the Raven's stadiums. Lots of restaurants nearby, and the excellent Little Italy district is about a 15 minute walk or $5 cab ride away. Pick any restaurant in Little Italy, they are all wonderful. The hotel is build in conjunction to a 2 story are a of shops. The rooms are on the upper floors in a box shape, so there can be some more than average walks to your room after you get off the elevator. If you have issue with walking, make sure you ask for a room near the elevators.

Room Tip: If you have issues with walking, ask for a room near the elevators.

Stayed here two nights for a wedding that was in the area--checked in at 3AM and the staff was very nice. Self parking was underground, and convenient to hotel elevators. Rooms were large and spacious (standard king). Big bathrooms.

Be prepared to walk to your room. Only one bank of elevators on one end, and if your room is at the other end its a good haul. Not bad if you like walking, but if you have troubles, request a room near elevators. Speaking of elevators--Saturday and Sunday morning was outrageous waiting for an elevator. 15 minute wait on multiple occasions.

Marriott club was packed in the morning for breakfast---and I mean packed with running screaming kids. Not sure the rules on guest at the club but they could possibly enforce this better.

Breakfast buffet on 5th floor was very good, but again long lines for omelet bar.

The location to Inner Harbor attractions can't be beat. You are literally across the street. So because of the location I would return if the price was right.

Room Tip: Choose close to elevator to avoid long lines

Stayed here for an Orioles game in July 2013. Right across the street to Inner Harbor. 5-10 minute walk to Camden Yards and Convention Center. Used my Marriott points so I can't speak to price, but it was a very nice and clean hotel in a perfect location. Would definitely stay again.

I recently stayed here for 3 nights while in town for some Orioles games.

This property is right across the street from the Inner Harbour, that has many dining opportunites, and a great start fro all your sight seeing needs. The hotel is also adjacent to a shopping mall.

The rooms were comfortable, and well equipped, and have everything you need in the room. while I have stayed in some nicer Renaissance properties, this one does the job overall.

The entire staff is friendly, from the front desk, bell captains, and bar staff. They are all eager to help out with anything,

The bar area (on the 6th floor I think), is comfortable, has a wide selection of local brews and a great late night menu.
