More of a elegant bed and breakfast with lots of character and history. Service is unmatched. Rooms are quiet. Food is great. Leave the kids at home and relax. If you like old historical places with updates. This is a great spot

If you are looking to get away from it all, come here. This luxurious hotel with a staff that makes you their priority and prides itself on making sure you’re happy is worth the trip. From breakfast to afternoon tea, the the beautiful suites with the coziest beds and fireplaces -no disappointments. The on-site restaurant, Magdalena is also a gem. This is our second stay, and there are many more to come!

Pure sophistication and luxury from the first step into this establishment. Atmosphere was elegant and serene. Front desk was utterly professional. Rooms were an oasis of luxury. There was no expense spared in decorating and amenities. This made my holiday family stay well worth it.

This is a very special hotel. it doesn't get much better for a hotel than The Ivy. The service is outstanding. There are free liquor, wine, champagne, and mini bar. From 2-4 pm there is afternoon tea. They accept dogs which they treat like royalty complete with biscuits, a pillow, case, bowls, etc. It is perfection.

My friends and coworkers ribbed me for choosing Baltimore because of the crime. However, if they saw the Ivy they would have thought twice. When you enter, you're greeted with champagne (or sparkling cider) and a tour from one of the concierges. We met both James and Calvin, and they were both warm and personable. When our room was ready, room 9 was spotless, spacious, and welcoming. Snacks and drinks in the room were complimentary. Tea later in the day was complimentary. Breakfast the day after was complimentary. Get the pattern? We were also impressed with the car service when we had a reservation at Gordon Ramsey Steak. It was tough not to tip, but the staff was insistent. Dinner at Magdalena (not complimentary) was terrific as well. It was a little too rainy to be outside, but we're looking forward to the next visit to enjoy that. Same goes for the spa. However, we didn't need either of those things to have a terrific weekend.
