I spent a weekend at the Inn and it was my first time in Baltimore. I must say this place contributed to make my stay memorable.
This is not your ordinary hotel room, as it could well be bigger than your own apartment. The rooms are absolutely huge, with full living/dining room, large bathroom with full double jaccuzzi and shower, and a large room with a great closet. If you are in for a long stay in Baltimore, there can be no better place.
I loved the fact that the structure is actual concrete walls (i.e., little outside noise), and the decor is raw mediterranean: painted walls in warm colors, concrete floors, rugs instead of carpet. Free wine and water in the fridge (if only all hotels were like this!), a super comfy bed and breakfast cooked to order delivered to your room (or at the Agora Cafe downstairs, except Sundays). Last but not least, a non invasive, super friendly assistance from the young staff.
The only odd thing that gets time to get used to are the sensor lights, which I quickly learned how to manage, but still had to get up one time to switch it off as a brisk move to snooze my alarm triggered the lights on. Minor damages thought.
The hotel itself was great, but location turned out to be perfect. You are right in between the nice restaurants and shops at the Inner Harbor, and the bars and nightlife of Fells Point, without having to endure noise or any sort of traffic that you may find in either of these (especially the noise). I was on a lower floor facing the street and had no problem with noise.
You can easily walk to many of the attractions in Baltimore from here, park your car nearby or take one of the free city circulators that stop right by the hotel. There was plenty to see here and whenerver I decide to come back this wll certainly be my first choice.
