Stay Report - 7/9 to 7/10 Location: The hotel is located in downtown Baltimore on the corners of Charles and Baltimore street.  It's an easy walk to the Charles Center Metro Subway along with the Inner Harbor and a bunch of restaurants over on Charles Street.  Downtown is a little sleepy on weekends but there's nicely a Dunkin open every day right across from the hotel. Hotel: The hotel is absolutely beautiful.  A gorgeous turn of the century building in a wonderful state of repair.  The lobby levels are lovely with art collections and the common areas on each floor are gorgeous too.  Lots of high ceilings, good lighting, plus carpeting and art.   Check In: My brother had booked the room.  He's IHG Platinum and we were told we were upgraded to a suite.  Sadly it just had one bed so we had to decline.  Still, nice to see upgrades are being given out. Room: The room was really nice.  Two large beds, no issues with soundproofing, Wifi worked well etc.  I will say that while the bathroom was nice the shower had some of the weakest water pressure I can remember in a hotel. Dining: There's a restaurant called B&O on the lower level but it didn't open until 8 Sunday so I didn't visit.  There was of course free coffee in the lobby. ​​​​​​​Overall a great location for downtown Baltimore.

Older hotel, but good location. Close enough to walk almost everywhere that you need to go. Staff was friendly both at the front desk and room attendants. Coffee available in the lobby. As a Platinum Elite member I was upgraded upon check-in. Thank you!

We spent three nights here a few weeks ago for a graduation. During our stay, an item was removed/taken from our room. I reported the item missing to lost and found before we left. The message said we would get a call back within 24 hours. Since that time, I have left two messages for lost and found, a voicemail for the head of housekeeping, an email for the head of housekeeping, completed a request on the hotel's website and there has been zero response. The only person who has tried to help me is a front desk clerk on the other end of the text line they use to check if your stay is okay. However, when I mentioned that the item was taken, she assured me that housekeeping was not to enter our room without permission. Yet, they were in our room daily because the bed was made and there were fresh towels. We were even handed a sheet of paper at check-in stating there would be no housekeeping unless requested. The item did not go missing on its own and it is not something we carry around. It was a teddy bear that was in the bed. There is no reason sheets would have been changed for that short of stay. The teddy bear that is missing is not an expensive item, but it has sentimental value. I am so sad that it is gone, but I am furious at the lack of response from the hotel. They have not even had the courtesy to return a call or email. I even contacted Kimpton hotels via Instagram and have not received a response. I have been a fan of Kimpton in the past, but this has soured my opinion of them greatly. Customer service seems to have gone out the window. Oh and on top of that, no one could check me out when we went to leave. The person at the front desk did not know how to do it and didn't know how to apply my Kimpton reward mini-bar certificate.

I had read previous reviews about the hotel needing to be updated but thought it would be okay for a quick overnight stay since I was in town for a wedding. But after my experience I wouldn’t come back—not even for another quick stay. I want to say the staff was helpful and friendly, but the hotel itself leaves less to be desired. I discovered after leaving out the room for my event that my door did not immediately lock, which as a solo traveler is a major concern. The staff that came to help showed me that I had to maneuver the handle a certain way to get the door to fully shut. From what I gathered many other guest call and have to be shown the same technique. For a hotel at this level, guests shouldn’t need to do a special door handling technique to get their doors to properly close and lock. My room was clean but did have chipped furniture, a crack in the hall closet door, the chair in the room was stained, and stains were all over the walls but it may have been bad touch up paint jobs—I’m not sure. My last issue was with the valet service. I came back from the wedding festivities quite late and planned to use the service so that I didn’t have to self park and walk back to the hotel alone but no one was there. I asked the front desk staff if the service was available and she confirmed it was but no one knew where he went and he had been missing for quite some time. Luckily there was street parking available right across from the entrance and I parked there instead. Even though the staff I encountered were great, I wouldn’t visit again since I had so many solo safety concerns and the room wasn’t nice enough to help make up for it either. Please update the rooms to match the lovely architecture!

Very interesting architecture in this old building….lots of marble; just beautiful! We had a great time and really enjoyed the building; love the spacious rooms, which were very clean. Conveniently located close to the inner harbor and not too far from other Baltimore attractions like Canton and Fells Point.

This used to be a beautiful hotel, with lovely gracious people working there. The people I saw face to face were really wonderful, from the front desk to the waitstaff, to the coffee hostess. All warm and helpful. However, the room was...shabby: a missing dresser drawer, peeling wallpaper, torn carpeting, and food and trash left on the floor from a previous guest. I did not receive a receipt when I checked out, so I sent an email through their site. Undeliverable. I called and asked for a receipt, and was told I didn't need one, since I hadn't spent any money over my Hotel Tonight booking. I asked for a receipt anyway, since they had put a $200 hold on my credit card. Twice, the person on the phone explained why they had done that; twice I said I understood and asked for a receipt. I was told I would receive one by email. 8 hours have gone by and I have no receipt. I need a new go-to place in the Inner Harbor. :-(

Kimptons tend to be more interesting than this particular property which honestly is lackluster. Lobby area is pretty generic with no interesting artwork or design features. Rooms are also generic, no design elements typically seen in Kimptons. Front desk is helpful and courteous though, even allowing me to access room ahead of check in time which is most appreciated. No in-room coffee/tea options - you need to go to lobby which has it available from 7am (or close to) onward. Soap dispensers in shower and lobby level bathrooms were empty. Wait time for elevators can be a bit long with only 3 available to guests. The main issue is that I could hear the neighbors as I had a connecting door option. Though they were not partying or being particularly noisy, the sound disrupted my sleep. Not sure I would return unless there was a super deal available.

Pros: Briana at the front desk was incredible! Very friendly and accommodating. She was really working hard to handle and process the arriving guests. Food from the B&O Brasserie was tasty. Cons: I think we were given the same or a similar room as a another reviewer from March 2022. Bunk beds for our daughters were scratched and worn, handles on dresser broken (3 of the 6). Outlets in the desk looked crusty. Everything had a once-trendy, now-tired air like it was designed in 2003 and had never been forgotten. Too bad. It’s such a beautiful old building, so much potential. Management- please give the rooms the TLC they deserve and bring this hotel back to life!

Beautiful building but old rooms. I wish they would renovate them to keep up with the Kimpton standard. We got a room with Bunk beds for the kids, I thought it would be fun. The beds looked like they belong in a camp setting. They were old, scratched, and horrible bedding/blankets. Also, stuff continued to fall apart in the room. Dresser had broken handles, the towel bar in the bathroom kept falling off the whole time. And no door on the shower which means the water didn't stay in the shower, along with the worst water pressure I have experienced in a very long time. I am a fan of Kimpton and IGH hotels, but I will not be returning to this facility.
