We made a last minute booking for the long weekend. All of the downtown hotels were sold out so we expanded our search and ended up booking the Capital City Center. It wasn't much to look at from the outside but the rooms have been renovated and were decent for the price. Ours came with a small kitchenette with a stove and a microwave.
It looked like some renovations were in progress in the hallways to replace carpet and such. This is probably a good thing as the building does seem to be a bit older.
The pool is outdoors, which was fine for the hot weather we had. The kids had a great time. The poolside bar service was great and, according to their website, it's the only hotel in town with poolside bar service.
We didn't go to the hotel restaurant because it looked like it was closed for breakfast but there was a White Spot right next door.
The location is close enough to downtown to walk (about 15 minutes to the Inner Harbour). For the price we paid, I have no complaints. It was clean, close enough to where we wanted to go on foot, and was a lot cheaper than anything we would have booked downtown.
I wouldn't have a problem staying there again in the future.More
