We booked this Hampton Inn for it's decent rate and location to the Inner Harbor. This hotel was easy to find on the way into the city. Once pulled up out front we were greeted by the valet attendants. Valets were not only pleasnat and helpful at check-in/check-out but provided restaurant informaiton, directions, safety info during our entire stay. Note that there is NOT the option of self-parking at this location - which we knew about ahead of time. There are some parking garages close by but you would end up paying to park there too.
The lobby of this hotel is stunning. Check-in was quick and pleasant. We were on the 4th floor facing another hotel so no view to speak of but I don't think there really are any views at this hotel since it's only 7 stories and surrounded by taller buildings.
The room was very generously sized for a hampton - or any non-suite hotel for that matter. The room had 2 queen beds, a pull-out sofa, work desk, fridge, microwave, large counter space and sink, flat screen TV, end tables and lamps in the main room. Even with the sofa made into a bed you were easily able to get around. were comfortable - no "dips" in the middle or on the edges.
The closet was a decent size and located in the sink/vanity area just inside the entrance door. Vanity is outside the main shower/toilet area and was also quite large with a lot of counter space. The room was very clean and well maintained. Beds We were very pleasantly surprised by the room.
My only complaint about the room was that no matter where you were on the beds the AC blows directly on your face and body. This is annoying as the system kicks on and off all night and your nose can get dry. The AC isn't noisy at all so this is really a minor compaint.
We were worried that being located on a busy street and with a room near a corner it would be loud at night. There must be some amazing insulation and windows as you could hardly hear any street noise at all the entire time we were there. We commented that you hear more noise on the 4th floor of our favorite hotel in Albany!
Breakfast options were all very good and included with the room and held in the lobby. Eggs, sausage, potatoes, toast, muffins, bagels, cereal, waffles, oatmeal, danishes, juice, coffee, etc. The area can get pretty busy but there are a lot of tables/seating. The staff does a great job keeping the food stocked and even come around and offer mints, color pages for kids and clean the tables.
Our biggest complaint or let down was the terribly small pool in a somewhat dimly lit room. It's about the width of 3 chairs and maybe 12-15 chairs long. There isn't a hot tub. The water temp was OK and the room was surprisingly not humid or overly warm. Due to the small size it can feel crowded with only 4-5 people in this area. There was a lifeguard on duty at all times. It does also have limited hours during the week. We did hear quite a few people comment on how disappointing the pool was due to small size and lack of hot tub.
This hotel is in a great location to walk to all of the Inner Harbor attractions. Not more than 4 blocks. The area around the hotel seemed safe during daylight hours. There are drugstores right round the corner if you forget anything or need snacks, drinks, etc. There are many restaurants around the area as well randing from expensive to casual to fast food - lots of options.
The day of check out we wanted to make a spur of the moment trip the science center and inquired about local parking garages. The front desk said we could leave our luggage and had until 5pm to return without paying another valet fee. One of the valets actually got our car for us, we loaded the luggage and then he parked it again. When we returned after another long day or sightseeing it was nice to not have to load the vehicle and messa round with luggage.
