I got this room from Priceline.com. I was a little hesitant about the hotel at first from reading some reviews about it. First it is a great hotel, it use to be a bank at one point but it was remodeled about a year ago from what the hotel staff told me. The rooms are very clean and the staff could not have been any nicer. I forgot a few items like a razor and shaving cream so the staff gave me them for free. The location in not so great located right off the interstate highway about a mile from the inner harbor. Traveling with a young child I did not want to walk there. The hotel offers a free shuttle anywhere in the city within 1 mile which was great. I did not have to use my own vehicle all weekend nor did I have to pay any parking fees except the $24.00 at the hotel for 2 days. About the parking, they have a small parking lot in which they charge $12.00 a night, but you have to get there early, it is a first come first served parking lot. If you are not lucky enough to park in their lot you will have to pay to park on the street. The street is not too busy and there is a big police presents since there is a police station not too far away. So I believe it is safe to park there. The hotel offers a free breakfast which includes hot items (eggs, sausage, bacon, etc) also juice, milk, fruit, yogurt plus alot more. One down side to the hotel there is no convenience store or pharmacy close by so you will have to pick stuff up before getting to the hotel or venture out on your own in the city. In all, I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants great service, clean room, and great value.
