If you don't need to be directly on the Inner Harbor, I highly reccommend checking out this hotel. I found it on Hotwire.com at $39 a night, **1/2 stars. It was exactly what I was looking for. Very cute, very clean room! Flat screen tv, big closet, big bathroom, a comfy bed, and quiet. Getting a room from Hotwire usually means you're near the elevator, but even so, the ambient noise from the hall was minimal. Also, my room was directly across from the highway - more or less just white noise, nothing intrusive. The hotel itself is off the beaten path, 1 mile in from the Inner Harbor. The area is a little rundown, but I never felt unsafe - I suspect the gentrification of Baltimore will be there soon. It's near the Hopkins campus and there are A LOT of people walking around during the day, with a constant police presence. I did not go down for the complimentary breakfast (630a-9a), but the all day coffee/tea service was good. There is free WiFi in the room, which is convenient, but the connection is unsecured and a little spotty. All in all though, definitely worth keeping in mind if you are looking for a great place to stay in Baltimore.
