Stayed here mid-August to help our daughter move into the dorms at Johns Hopkins. Arrived late (midnight-ish), quick check-in. Went to our room on the second floor--smelled VERY strongly of cigarette smoke, in the hallway & room. Asked to have our room changed, I'm sensitive to the smoke. The (I'm sure they don't call them bellhops anymore, but I don't know what they do call them) guy went down to get our new room key while we chilled for a sec & ate our cookies. Second room, on the third floor was better, but still seemed a little smoky. Otherwise room was fine, clean, lots of towels. Staff was always helpful & seemed cheery.
For those who didn't find restaurants nearby (besides the fast foodish, student type things)--there's a pretty good Italian restaurant on W 39th St, about a block away in an apartment building. Maybe a little dressy, but very friendly, and generous portions.
In retrospect I'm not sure if the cigarette smoke was due to previous patrons smoking in the room. The hallways always seemed a little smoky to me (but I'm pretty sensitive to it); I wonder if there's a heavy smoker in the condos/apts above, or if workers were smoking near the air vents somewhere.
