Stayed here for a family visit in the area, and could not have been more pleased. Excellent value at The Hotel, with rates of 3-4 star hotel yet many of the amenities of a 4-5 star hotel. Standouts here include high quality materials, lovely views, and many walking trails around the hotel. Lots of eating options too, given proximity to the University campus. Would definitely stay here again. Recommend the deluxe level rooms for the view.
I have stayed at the Hotel at the University of Maryland many times. I have also stayed at four of the other hotels around the University. While they were all nice hotels, The Hotel and the University of Maryland is the best hotel in the area. The rooms are beautifully appointed, the bathrooms are large and clean and the Hotel supplies bath products. The employees are professional, helpful and attentive. The food selection is great, with Bagels and Grinds being my favorite. All in all, this is a lovely hotel and very conveniently located. I suggest you request a room facing the University as the view is wonderful.
I can’t say enough incredible things about the Hotel at the University of Maryland. From the beginning of time, it was no secret that I struggled with planning a wedding, especially in an area I did not know much about (I have no ties to University of Maryland or College Park). Décor, flowers, fancy invitations, food, etc… it’s just not my thing. But I still can be picky with others making decisions. Kelsey, the event coordinator, made everything so incredibly easy. She was able to paint a picture of a beautiful weekend, with amazing food, fun, and love. And it was just that… I got married June 11 and had our guests spend the weekend (Friday – Sunday). We did the entire wedding at the hotel. Upon arrival we were greeted so pleasantly. They even allowed us to check in early and store everything for the weekend in a conference room. We did welcome bags and the hotel made sure every single guest received one even though we told them it wasn’t a big deal. They went completely above and beyond from start to finish of the weekend. Friday night was a rehearsal dinner of about 35 people followed by Welcome Drinks for everyone invited to the wedding at the hotel bar (ended up being about 120 people). We did a charcuterie board and a 3 hour open bar for all. It was incredibly reasonably priced, and there was not one issue! We didn’t plan much décor, but the hotel made the bar area look GORGEOUS. What a way to kick off a weekend of fun! Saturday was a dream. We woke up and my 8 bridesmaids and I headed to the spa to get ready. We hired an outside group to come in for hair and makeup (although if it was an option, we would have preferred the hotel spa staff). The spa staff made everything so fun. Shanna, Kendra, and their team are incredible!!! Not to mention the pictures in the BEAUTIFUL spa turned out perfectly. There was only one thing that was hanging over our heads the day of the wedding… the rain! We were scheduled for 70% rain the day of the wedding. It rained and rained and rained all morning. Checking the radar, it looked like the rain would stop in the afternoon. The hotel staff was incredibly flexible and kind. They knew how badly we wanted to make outside work (although the inside setup they had was beautiful as well). For the first time ever, the weather forecast was right! It stopped raining and we were able to do the wedding outside. And O-M-G was it beautiful. I will never forget turning the corner and walking down the aisle with 165 of our closest friends watching. Everything from the chair set up to the views were perfect. There was so much incredible energy on that rooftop, and we owe most of that to the hotel staff & planners. The staff was so gracious, attentive, and genuinely happy to be there. They didn’t make it feel like they were there for a shift (like you may feel at some restaurants). They truly wanted everything to go right for complete strangers. It was incredible. From the amazing cocktail hour with live music to the dinner and dancing, the night was perfect. The staff did not have to, but they always had eyes on my husband and I to ensure we were happy. And we were SO happy!! We ended the evening down at the hotel bar. I would’ve thought only a few people would come to the after party, but almost the whole wedding showed up. The bartenders were such troopers. It was a rowdy crowd and a late night for them… they had nothing but the best attitude. When the night ended, my husband and I went up to our suite… there we found some appetizers from the wedding for a late-night snack. It was so thoughtful, and we were starving! We ended the weekend with bagels and coffee. We asked to have a bartender there for anyone who was staying for a little while… we had way more people stay than expected! Every guest that left the hotel left with such a great experience. Many comments we heard from our guests were “food was incredible,” “bar & drinks were the best they had ever had at a wedding,” and “they loved staying for the weekend without ever having to drive.” We also heard how wonderful the rooms, staff, and location were. A huge thank you to the Hotel at the University of Maryland for the best weekend of our lives! We can never repay the staff for their selflessness and graciousness. Do yourself a favor… get married here ASAP!…
Such a magnificent hotel and it’s location is PERFECT on Baltimore Ave you are in the middle of everything in College Park and it is right across from the gorgeous university that is UMD. Definitely recommend to all visiting the CP area
Our stay at The Hotel was wonderful. The staff was kind and helpful, the rooms were immaculate and state of the art. The proximity to University of Maryland is extremely convenient. Will definitely be back.
I had another reservation at the sister hotel cambria down the street. Upon our arrival, they had a power outage. We left that hotel to go to the hotel. Once we had arrived Angie the front desk clerk has been nothing but courteous and helpful. She went above and beyond to get us a reservation at the hotel. I really appreciate great customer service because I had an experienced at the sister hotel and when we came over to the hotel, we were greeted with a smile and lend a listening ear to our horrible experience at cambria their sister hotel. Whenever in the Maryland area, I will definitely stay at the hotel again.
Stay here! Everything perfect. Nice beds and so clean. Microwave to use in gift shop. No laundry but one is close by. Very secure- need room key to use elevators. Didn’t get to the pool but it looked nice and bar area was cool.
This hotel was the venue for my wedding and provided accommodations for our guests, family, and wedding party. The rooms were very nice and modern with cool views of the campus. The beds were very comfy as well. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and the bar in the main lobby was cool. Due to the location, there is a nice college bar scene and a variety of restaurants to eat within a short distance. A Target store is within walking distance (5-7 mins). Parking is easy and convenient and the ballrooms and rooftop space was spacious and aesthetically pleasing! My husband and I stayed in the presidential suite on our wedding night and the bathroom and bed was huge and the shower was amazing! Kelsey was our sales rep for the wedding and she was amazing from start to finish. She was the best! The price of the rooms was fair and affordable due to the high quality you get. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel for wedding needs AND for your overnight accommodations.…
My fiancé had a nice surprise for me for my birthday this past Tuesday. she had balloons, cake, roses, candles delivered to the hotel. When we arrived into room that was so beautifully decorated I was in awe. Thanks to two of the most amazing, kind, spirit-hearted persons who took it upon themselves to get the room decorated so lovely. We want to say Thank You and show are gratitude of appreciation. Job well done! Big Shout Out to
What can I say about our stay at the Hotel at the University of Maryland? My boyfriend and I reserved a room for a weekend away. We were attending a family wedding. And WOW! First, we were tired from our long drive, but the parking was easy thanks to a huge parking garage. Check in was super easy, the concierge was polite and humorous. The facilities were FANTASTIC! The gym was spacious and included so many different machines. Probably the best hotel gym we’ve been to! We enjoyed the pool and even visited to fabulous spa inside the hotel! The hotel bar was always a great time (we went every night of our three night stay). The cocktails were to die for, and the bartenders were always on it, ready to serve. The overall aesthetics of the hotel were beautiful and modern, and our room had beautiful floor to ceiling windows! The staff were truly excellent, professional, and kind! 10 out of 10. We’ll be back!…
