I stayed because I bought tickets to attend a new year's concert at Baltimore Sound Stage. After spending so many hours of research this was the closest hotel to the concert walking distance. The price was affordable for a family mini-vacation. The hotel is pet friendly, the cost for a pet is $50 per stay not per night. The only complain that I have is that the head board of the beds were dusty. I am a clean freak and I can say that I know for a fact they do not clean the top of bed head boards, top of pictures frames, and top of mirrors. The bathroom was nicely clean, except the bathroom curtain needs to be replaced. Everything else was excellent. The room was extremely clean except for the minors details that I just mentioned. The staff were very nice and friendly; Samantha was the front desk receptionist that welcomed us. Yadira, the lady responsible for the breakfast was also very nice and always made sure everything was clean. The hotel is great I will stay there again but the location is awful for someone that is not used seeing homeless and people stopping begging for money. Even at the port there were people following asking for money. This was very uncomfortable because I did not feel safe walking outside the Gallery. If you are a New Yorker you would not mine walking 10 minutes to reach Inner Harbor. The parking was $12 per night. My husband was walking our dog around midnight and was stopped by the cops and the officer asked him rudely if he was drunk. The police was not friendly at all. Make sure you bring water since the hotel only has vender machines and does not offer free bottles of water.
