My wife and I stayed at this hotel October 11-13, 2012. Overall, the hotel is very good. The rooms were spacious and had a kitchenette with a medium size refrigerator. The hotel is approximately seven blocks from the Inner Harbor, which was an easy walk. Baltimore is a great walking city around the Inner Harbor; however, if you are not the avid walker, the free Charm City Circulator has a bus stop right around the corner from the hotel. With transfers throughout this area, one can cover a lot of ground without excessive walking.
Close to the Inner Harbor
Great selection of restaurants and shopping venues in the area
No need for a car in the immediate area (free bus service!)
Great historical area
Short distance from BWI Airport
Breakfast shuts down promptly at 9:00 AM during the week
One note that should be mentioned is to not let the hotel call a cab for you. Make prearrangements if you can. The cab ride from BWI to the hotel was $35; however, the cab driver that the hotel called for us to take us back to BWI on our departure tried to charge me $50. I called him on this attempt to rip me off and ended up paying $40 instead. I did not mind paying just slightly more considering we had to take an alternate route back to BWI due to a marathon that morning. Don't mess with Texas!
