I stayed at at the Home2 Suites Hotel in Downtown Balimore from 12/29-1/1. I actually could give my stay 5 stars if it wasn't for one issue. However in terms of location, service, room, a free continental breakfast and the rate paid I couldn't be happier. The staff was always helpful and even called shortly after checking in to make sure we were happy. Mount Vernon is a great part of Baltimore to stay as it is centralized and also convenient to the Charm City Circulator which is free transporation around much of the city. The room was updated, very large and realistically like a small but modern NYC apartment. The coffee was always hot and delicious and ultimately the continental breakfast provided enough light options for anyone's taste to start the day (whether it be toast/bagels, oatmeal, granola, yogurt, egg toaster sandwich, juice and coffee). Lastly, I paid an advanced rate of $89/night which considering it was the weekend of NYE, the quality of the hotel and the location downtown cannot be beat! The only negative in my stay, which seems to be a consistent issue with others, is the water pressure. Several times throughout the weekend we either had trickling/barely existent water or in worse cases nothing. One morning I had covered my face in shaving cream and upon attempting to shave found out that we had no water in the shower, bathroom sink or kitchen sink. After 10 minutes I had to wipe my face with a towel and just wait to shave later. The other main issue this created is just not being able to necessarily shower when you need or want to. I'm not quite sure what is causing this problem for guests but certainly hope it is resolved as I plan to make several trips to Baltimore in 2013 and overall find Home2 suites a great choice and would like to continue staying at this location.
