Highly recommend!!!!! Very very clean hotel!!!!!!Loved this hotel, it has a beautiful modern yet historical feel to it. It is in a safe residential looking area, free parking, free breakfast, and extremely clean which was a big big plus. Fully renovated which has given it a modern clean 5 star hotel feel. The hotel staff couldn’t of been any more helpful, they were very nice people. My husband and I have stayed at 5 star hotels in Baltimore before and our stay at the Braxton Hotel was much better. We felt like we were at home the minute we walked in the door. The only complaint is that there was no DVD player, which wasnt even a big deal. Great Great Great trip, one of our best yet. O and the bed was the best I have ever had at a hotel even 5 star ones. I am extremely funny about pillows and these were very comfortable!!!

I'm sure this place is lovely IF they don't screw up your reservation and you are lucky enough to stay there! We were planning to stay there with friends on our trip, but they (and I mean they because we had to speak to several people!) managed to totally mess up the reservation dates then when they got it right they immediately changed it claiming that we had requested the change (to the wrong date...again). Then we were told that the room and rate we had originally requested, and for one brief moment actually had, was no longer available. After speaking with "MANAGEMENT" who claimed they could no longer do anything for us, we were told they didn't feel they could host us. Never have we been treated so horribly! What a nightmare just to make a reservation!!!!!!!!!

Brexton, General Manager at Hotel Brexton, responded to this reviewResponded March 1, 2011

We do apologize that we were unable to accommodate you at our hotel and we deeply regret any inconvenience in the mix-up of the dates.

You initially made your reservations both by email and phone, and we do have copies of your request with different and conflicting dates mentioned (and we would be happy to post them on the website if you wish). Later, I, as the General Manager of the Hotel, personally got involved and made sure that everything was booked properly as you wanted. The corrected confirmation was then sent to you. Later you responded with another email demanding an upgrade to a Superior room at no charge and a further discounted rate. You were advised that we were fully booked but in case an opening comes up, that you would be upgraded. At the same time I informed you that I would not be able to cut your rate further than it was already quoted, because we had already given you a very favorable rate. At that point you informed me that you would post a very bad review about our property. We hope that we will get a chance to host you in future and this time maybe we can start off on a better note to meet your expectations. We do our best to make all our present and future guests happy, but unfortunately we do not always accomplish this task. If there is anything we can do to regain your trust in future, please do let us know. We would have loved to have had you as our guest, and maybe you would have been as pleased as our many past guests who have posted very positive reviews about their stay here at Hotel Brexton.

Again, please do accept our apologies for any misunderstanding.

Best regards,

Paul Masai, General Manager.

My husband and I and our granddaughter stayed at the Brexton on our way to Virginia and would highly recommend this hotel. It was convenient off the highway and when we came in we were tired and our room was spacious and comfortable for the 3 of us. It had everything that we needed and we felt pampered. The next morning we took advantage of the breakfast before we left for the 2nd part of our trip and we were satsified.
We have stayed in many different hotels this year and this one is one of the highly rated for us!

In town for the BSO, we chose Hotel Brexton for its proximity to the symphony center. Staff was very courteous and welcoming, the accommodations were perfect, and the location couldn't have been better. Plenty of cafés and restaurants nearby. Looking forward to staying again in the future.

Well the hotel is great, service from staff, quality of rooms and decor. But I have to say that we loved the latte lounge machine that can be accessed all day. A value add on and quite a bit of fun to play with.

My wife and I stayed and had a small dog with us (they allow dogs up to 20lbs in weight for a small fee). Great location for a nice short break, that allowed us to travel without leaving our dog behind. Would recommend this hotel with any qualms whatsoever.

Found the Brexton online and booked it because it was close to the Opera House. The beds and linens were incredible, the service was great, the decor was modern and very tasteful and the price was just right. Loved staying there and would absolutely stay there again if in Baltimore.

Here it is January 2011 and I am finally submitting a review for a stay in June 2010. That should tell you how delighted we were with our stay! The General Manager, Paul, and his staff created an atmosphere which made us feel very special. We were in town for a large convention and were able to attend at the last minute so all of the contracted hotels were booked. On a gamble, we chose Hotel Brexton. What a blessing it turned out to be! Although the property is located several blocks from the convention hotels, it was a nice respite to be away from the hustle and bustle. Instead of staying in a chain hotel, we had the wonderful surprise of staying in this character-filled European-style hotel. Besides the warmth and charm we experienced, the rates were very reasonable and parking was right in front of the hotel. It was conveniently located for all of our dining and sightseeing excursions. If we ever return to Baltimore, our first lodging choice will be Hotel Brexton!
