My husband and I stayed here over the weekend to celebrate our one year anniversary. We wanted to spend some time at inner harbor, the museums and eating at some great restaurants. We chose this hotel since it is close to inner harbor.
The Pros: This hotel is not far from inner harbor & in a nice area for walking through town to get there. A few blocks and you are right near the Gallery shopping area and inner harbor area. We found the decor and ambiance of the hotel to be nice. There are trees out front that have strung white lights on them. This combined with the fountain makes for a very romantic photo opportunity. Our room had a big flat screen TV, a king size bed and writing desk area. The bathroom was fairly spacious with both a tub & shower which I prefer because of my back issues. All the amenities were provided and the air worked fine. The continental breakfast was pretty standard and yummy.
The Cons: Our bed was EXTREMELY uncomfortable. My husband and I have a queen size bed so usually anytime we get the opportunity to sleep in a king sized bed, I am happy as can be. But this king bed was awful. I kept feeling like I was gravitating towards the center so I had to put pillows around me for support. I had terrible back pain each day. I must have woke up 8 or more times a night. The pillows were equally terrible and useless. They are the kind that your head sinks down into the bottom and have no support whatsoever. Granted my husband is used to one of those memory foam pillows but I am usually the least picky of the two of us. I sleep on just about any pillow and beds rarely bother me. But this time the combination had me excited to get home into our own smaller bed. The bathroom set up was not very practical. Pretty...but not that practical. The sink was one of those fancy kinds that sit on top of the counter. Which is very decorative BUT when you only have a tiny sink area in general, it was not practical. It took up over half of the counter leaving only a fraction for our toiletries. Whoever installed the small shelf above the sink put it so close to the faucet handle for the sink that you could not even lift the handle the entire way up. And the hair dryer was put so far away from the outlet that the cord barely made it to be plugged in. The entire washroom set up was just very impractical.
Now does this matter a great deal? No way! I am not hard to please. Unless there are rodents, dirty or unsanitary conditions ect. I will not complain or say its terrible. But I did want to just note in this review that for the cost of this hotel because of its location, I would think they could take some time to do some upgrades to their beds. If quality sleep is what you are looking for, I hope you get a room with a better bed than we did.
