My husband and I stayed at the Brexton for just one night. We found it to be a very nice surprise. It was a lovely old hotel and had a lot of charm. From our first encounter at the front desk,to our cozy room .We found this hotel to fill all our needs and more. It was clean and up to date. We liked that we could ride the bus to the harbor for free as well park are car for free. The continental Breakfast was just enough. We would highly recommend this hotel.

A good experience that could have been great with attention to detail. A friendly (if slow) staff, a clean (if slightly shabby) room, and a great area (with a view of an ugly building across the way).

I spent the past week at the Brexton while my condo' s bathroom was being renovated. I'd never heard of it, found it on the app Hotel Tonight. It was less than a mile from my home. The staff couldn't have been nicer, the room was very clean, and they are pet friendly. It's so close to City Cafe which is a fav. I will definitely have friends and family stay there when visiting me.

Room Tip: I liked the layout of the 04 rooms 204 being my fav

The hotel was lovely. What a delightful boutique hotel with the right mix of turn of the century aesthetics and modern conveniences. It is walking distance from the train station or a 5 minute cab ride. The neighborhood
has such a incredible array of restaurants. A five minute walk or less
will take you from Ethiopian to Afghan to Indian fare. Besides these nice
bonuses, I have to call out Milton and Paul who worked during the days I was staying. They were so attentive and proactive with brilliant suggestions of where to eat (how I found out about the aforementioned) to helping with rental-a-cars (challenge on a FREEZING morning at 8 am). All their help, and suggestions of the entire staff was done with such warmth,
I was quite swept away. Last but not least, for those business travelers
looking for a different option to the mega sky rise chains, SUPER FAST WIFI!! Woop! Overall, an outstanding experience.

We stayed one night in early the weekend before Christmas. The in an Amazon Local deal. It included a queen room, bottle of wine, continental breakfast and dinner for two at Supano's restaurant on water Street.
The exterior old the hotel is impressive. It dates from the 1870's. The lobby is not so impressive but don't be put off. We were upgraded to a king room on the second floor. It was well appointed and quite comfortable. Gilchrist and Soames toiletries. The TV was a little odd because the remote would only change stations, adjusting the volume or even turning on and off required using the controls on the tv.
Ebony, who worked at the desk during our stay, was wonderful. She went out of her way to be accommodating. Even taking us to the breakfast room to show us how to use the sophisticated espresso/cappuccino machine which is available 24/7. Yumm!! She also arranged to ship an item of clothing which we inadvertantly left in the room.
A word of caution. There is free on the street parking directly in front of the hotel. Very convenient. But there are only 6 spaces, first come, first served.

I have stayed at Brexton many times over the past few years, and it is a clean and friendly place to stay while exploring Baltimore. The staff works hard to make it comfortable for guests and are very friendly. Once in awhile I can hear the neighbors in the room next door, but most often a quiet place to be. Very convenient to Myerhoff Symphony Hall and if you enjoy walking, not to far from the Inner Harbor, or you can take the free Purple Bus.

The staff is friendly, accommodating, and clueless. The rooms are well maintained, and sizable, but don't ask them for directions. They'll tell you where a bus stops, or where the light rail will pick you up, but won't inform you of simple things like "Light rail doesn't run until 11 AM on Sundays" or "The bus stop you need to get off, if you pick up the bus at the stop we're pointing you to is [__]." Additionally, they'll call you a cab, and that cab will come in "2-15 minutes." It's out of the way enough that you stay away from the downtown Baltimore nonsense, but it's out of the way enough that you're away from everything.
