“A leafy escape”
Reviewed June 28, 2009

If you want easy access to baltimore's downtown (train in Mt. Washington Village or short hop down the Jones Falls Expy) and do not want noisy crowds, this is the place for you. It's a conference center that rents rooms, which means no food is served, but it's a short walk to Mt. Washington Village, and there's pizza delivery. The room was fine; the beds were great; there is a small terrace outside each room; and the price is amazing for the quality. After a day of sightseeing, what better respite than to be surrounded by acres of beautiful grounds?

I stayed at this conference center for a Hopkins-associated meeting. The location is a bit far from the airport and downtown area, but the grounds and Mt. Washington town area are nice to wander around. Because I was booked here for a meeting with a group of people, our stay included all meals and snacks. This made for a convenient, although somewhat less-than-exciting stay. The guestrooms in the conference center were adequate and reasonably clean, though lacking in character. The complimentary business center and gym access were a nice touch. The Octagon Building has an interesting history, serving as a finishing school for girls and later a college.

  • Liked — Nice grounds, historic Octagon Building
  • Disliked — Guestroom accomodations and are so-so

We lined this reservation up at the last minute through Expedia. It was easily the least expensive option in the 3-star category and was a pleasant surprise. While by no means luxurious, our room was clean, tastefully-enough-decorated, and adequately proportioned. Probably the best aspect of our stay, however, was that the Conference Center is surrounded by lovely grounds--even acres of woods, in spite of its being just minutes from downtown.
