“Very new at time of writing!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2009

Stayed here for one night travelling back to Philly airport. We arrived around 1am but found the staff on duty very helpful and jolly for the time of night.

The hotel had only been open a few months and as a result looked immaculate, the room was clean and a good size. My son was hungry and chose a sandwich from the inhouse store $8!! Not much choice at that time!.

There was a pool but it was only open between 4pm and 9pm, no use to us, its a shame a very nice facility was not available to us and I dont understand why. We used the business center to print our boarding cards which was useful and there was free wifi throughout the hotel.

There was a restaurant but we didnt use it, it did look good though. Close to Arundel Mills mall and I think Baltimore Airport but not noisy.

Recommended if you are staying in the area.

This hotel is fantastic. I travel to Baltimore frequently for leisure and often stay by the airport because it's easy in and out of downtown without the high price tags. This location has been the best. It's very close to the airport, train stations, a great mall and many other conveniences. The staff here was wonderful, some of the best I've encountered in any hotel. Everyone was more than happy to help with any request we had, and they were very knowledgeable and so nice. The hotel is in great shape. The kids loved the pool, I loved the kitchen in the room, the free breakfast was good and plentiful. The bathroom is laid out a little strange with the toilet & shower separate from the vanity. I've seen this many times before but there's usually still a small vanity in the toilet area. There was no table, chair, or vanity in the shower area which left us laying all our belongings on the toilet while we showered. For families with young kids, there was no bathtub, only a shower in our room. I don't know if all rooms are the same. But really, there is nothing to complain about here. We were more than pleased.

We stayed at this brand new Hilton Garden Inn on a recent weekend, and we absolutely loved it. We were in town to attend and event at the Military Academy, and for us, the location was just perfect. It's right in between Annapolis and Baltimore, so we were able to spend time in each location, and the weather was so gorgeous we really enjoyed a full day at both. It's obvious this hotel has just opened, everything is so new and clean, the rooms and carpeting looked untouched, and they had great features like flat-screen TVs and real coffee pots and hair dryers in the rooms. The hotel has it's own restaurant, but there are so many other dining options that we didn't try it. The bar looked pretty nice, much better than what I've seen at other HGIs. There's also a really nice fitness room and a pool, both of which we scoped out but did not have time to use. Check-in was quick and easy, we checked out over the TV, and we found the staff to be friendly and helpul. They have an 'airport shuttle' but graciously offered to take us to other nearby locations so we didn't have to drive. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be close (but not TOO close) to the action. For shoppers, the outlet mall next door looked really awesome, but we had too much to do and it was way to nice out to shop anyway. We could have easily spent another two days and still not had a chance to do evertyhing there is to do there. We will definitely be back!

This was a brand new property which was unusual in that it was in the same building as a Hilton Garden Inn. It looked as if the suite which we had had never been used. With a top floor room you get a good view of the surroundings. Getting into Baltimore on the light rail system was cheap and trouble free with very modern trains and a frequent service. Cna't think of anything which could be improved!

We just stayed over spring break at this brand new hotel and we have found the perfect hotel for large family. We 3 kids and one of the way, this hotel suite offered the perfect home away from home for the week. The hotel was spotless and customer service was awesome. They always followed-up, were very prompt and gave great ideas for the area. The hotel is located only 2m from BWI airport and you can actually watch the planes land and take off but it was very quite. The kids would stare out the window forever watching. The hotel is right off highway and only 10m to the inner harbor, 30m to six flags, 40m to DC and 1m to the Arnundel mall(which had a walmart). The free breakfast and dinner was very good. We had breakfast every day. The kids loved the indoor pool which was very warm. The suite was perfect as it came with 2 full bedrooms, 2 baths, living area and small kitchen with micro/fridge/stove. The kids had room to roam and we did not feel cramped at all. The first day our kids said this was the best hotel ever(mostly cause they got their own room). In addition, there was a dennys across the street. Moving forward, this will be our hotel chain for vacations as it was perfect for large family. I would highly recommend. It is more money but you at least get for what your pay for and no cramped sleeping arrangements so the money was worth it. The only minor issue or lack of design was there is no covered entrance to the hotel as we left in major rainstorm. I only noticed cause it was raining. Otherwise, great trip, ideal location and friendly hotel.
