What a great hotel! The layout is a little difficult, and I had to traverse a labyrinth to get to my room, but once I got there I was suitably impressed. The room was beautifully appointed and decorated, and I had an amazing view of the Inner Harbor -- which I certainly didn't expect for the less than $150 US I was paying! The bathroom was beautiful and had great products, breakfast was delivered quickly and was delicious, and the hotel staff was incredibly friendly and helpful.
I indulged in the legendary afternoon tea, and was not disappointed! The tea was wonderful, as was the food. My server was very friendly and attentive, the setting was beautiful, and in the spirit of the season the hotels had carolers periodically singing during the course of the tea. In fact, one of them performed one of the best, most moving versions of Ave Maria I have ever heard.
All in all, staying at The Empress was a terrific, if too brief, experience.More
