My wife, young daughter, and I were stuck in Baltimore for the night after missing a flight. The front desk couldn't have been nicer and more friendly. Turned our bad day into an unexpected surprise!!!!

We stayed one night only, as we worked our way up the East Coast visiting colleges over Spring break. In Baltimore we stayed at the Sonesta. The property is fairly new (and/or well-maintained) and the rooms are in good shape. We had one on the Harbor side and the view was very nice. There is a lot of noisy traffic... More

Our hotel debuted in 1986, so your perception that we are fairly new reflects the efforts of our team around the clock to keep our building clean and well-maintained. We completed... More

This hotel staff was professional and courteous from my initial phone call to my check out. The hotel is beautiful and well maintained.

We visited for one night with our 4 kids. The hotel is nice, pool and exercise areas are very nice as well. This is not a 5 star hotel but a very nice 3 star. It seams like they have made some renovations but need to finish off some basic maintenance like touching up paint on room ceilings and caulking.... More

This hotel was absolutely gorgeous. Rooms were gorgeous, staff was very friendly, and our view was unbelievable of the harbor! The explorers lounge had the best calamari. We also had the crab mac and cheese....it was awesome! Fitness area was great...it had everything!....as well as racquet ball courts and an outdoor tennis court. I would definitely come back.

My husband and I loved this place when Intercontinental ran it; it was our favorite weekend getaway from PA, so when a business meeting was scheduled for the Royal Sonesta I was delighted when the cab pulled up to my old favorite.
