Excellent customer service from everyone I met. Shuttle driver very cheerful and helpful as well as informative. Front desk employees very courteous and anxious to help. Rooms are modern though temperature control proved a challenge (cooling led to draughts). Bed comfortable once I worked out the right pillow combination! Workspace and wi-fi/wired connection worked fine and fast. I walked to/from the hotel on many occasions and never had a problem or felt concerned - felt safer than in many large cities worldwide. The hotel is close to the main police station. Baltimore has some wonderful architecture, so walking is the best way to see it. Hotel location is away from main tourist areas admittedly, but it is 10 minutes downhill to Inner Harbor and 15 to the convention center. Mount Vernon is a spirited 10 minutes uphill walk. Local taxis are reliable and fair priced. If I have a grouse, it is that there is very limited breakfast seating space, but that's a way to get to meet new people! Overall, this hotel is somewhere I would return without hesitation.
