My friend and I took a road trip and stopped in Baltimore to visit with my Aunt & Uncle. They booked us a room at the Royal Sonesta! I have to say that I was excited to stay here and wasn't let down. We checked in late which didn't see to be an issue since we were given an upgrade to a harbor view room. The lobby is nice with some seating areas and a spiral stair case. At night it was candle lit. We were only there for a quick over night stop, so we didn't get to use any of the amenities but they do have a fitness area with a pool and hot tub (which closed early when we were there. I was really looking forward to soaking in the hot tub for a little while).
The room was tucked away in a corner but easy to find. There was a nice little private foyer for our room and the room next to it. Upon entering the room there a little area with the bathroom, mini bar, and closet. Go through there and you enter the huge bedroom area. We had 2 beds, a desk, a tv, and a relaxing chair. The decor was plain and slightly dated, but that view was awesome. We got there right as the sun was setting, so add the light reflecting off the buildings and it was incredible! The bathroom was probably bigger than our bathroom at home and had a tv and phone. The shower was nice, not too big not too small. It got hot fast and had decent water pressure. There were shampoo, conditioner, and soap dispensers on the wall. Plenty of soft towels were provided, as well and a shower cap and shoe sponge, and a blow dryer in case you forgot yours. There was an ice bucket, glasses, and a mini fridge in the little bar area; however, we needed a bottle opener and there wasn't one. The carpet was nice and plushy and the bed is kind of what I imagine a cloud would be like. The only issue I had was trying to figure out how the AC worked. Once I figure it out the room cooled off nicely!
We walked to the Hard Rock from here for dinner. It was a quick easy walk around the harbor. There is so much to do in the harbor area and it's all accessible by walking. We parked in a gravel lot behind the building, I'm assuming because we were visiting relatives. But I do believe that there was a parking garage attached to the building. After dinner we headed to the Explorers Lounge on the 2nd floor for a drink before bed. They were expensive and I was not impressed. I got an LIT and I couldn't finish it. An LIT is a pretty basic drink, kind of hard to mess up, but neither one of us would drink it. The lounge was very inviting with tables and couches (as well as the bar) to sit at and relax after a LONG day. We got breakfast to go from Brightons. They had a nice selection and it was pretty tasty. All of the staff was extremely friendly from the time we got there to the time we left.
