Since this was a short getaway, I wanted something special in a hotel. I chose the Monaco because it was the headquarters of the B&O Railroad prior to being remodeled, and the photos looked really nice. Well, it was more than really nice. It's GORGEOUS! The glory of days past is alive and well in the main entrance with its curving marble staircase, and every inch of the recently-remodeled building is just special. The hotel offers every amenity, including a wine-and-appetizer reception at 5 every evening in the main lobby with its fireplace and views of the city. That's a freebie and definitely a nice welcome to the hotel.
We had a "Mediterranean Suite" which was perfect in every way...and not over-priced! Cheaper than the "small suite" (which is a large room with a sofa) at the average Marriott, this was a legitimate four rooms with lots of privacy and the most beautiful spa shower/whirlpool bath room I've seen to date.
The walk to the Inner Harbor is longer from the Monaco than from some of the hotels that are right on the waterfront, but the five blocks was not a problem for us. We're old, but not infirm, and we enjoyed the walk several times during the weekend.
