Though number of staff members and breakfast options were a few of the aspects in the hotel that were limited, everything else translated to great value for money. Most of the members of staff were exceptionally friendly and considerate. The shuttle service to Hopkins hospital, inner harbour, etc. was extremely convenient, though often not on time because of traffic. The... More

When you arrive and walk in to the lobby it's like walking in to the 50s. It still has that bank appeal, from the mail slots by the elevator, to the bank vault behind the front desk. Another piece of history is the old elevator by the lobby little lounge. The rooms there are clean and the beds comfortable. They... More

We tend to like HI Express for their amenities and value. This was was no different. We got a very good price on one of the booking sites. It's a little out of the way of the main attractions in Baltimore, so we used their shuttle and Uber. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The building itself is cool -... More

My recent visit to the Holiday Inn was overall Pleasant. The ladies at the front desk were thorough and took care of any initial check in issues. We were there for a visit to John Hopkins Hospital. They offered a discounted rate for anyone with a doctor's visit to the facility. The shuttle service to the hospital, restaurants, shops the... More

The downtown holiday inn express Baltimore is outstanding. The rooms are extra clean and large. The entire staff do a great job. Our front desk worker Audi was great. Our van drivers Erica and JR were outstanding drivers. Keep up the great work! I am truly proud to be a holiday inn priority club member.

Great, clean rooms. Service great. Helpful at the front desk. Love the shuttle. We go to Little Italy's for dinner and take the shuttle. I think the shuttle is a wonderful thing since we are going back and forth to the hospital. Thank you for that service.
