This property is a distinctly mixed bag.
Rooms and hallways are recently renovated and comfortable, clean and ordelry too. Valet parking and front desk service were efficient (valet is not cheap though, and there are cheaper secure parking alternatives very near by). The location is nice for downtown, albeit a $10/10 minute cab ride away from the Inner Harbor or Fells Point. The entry is not glamorous but is efficient. Requiring key cards for elevator operation at all times and all floors is probably a good idea.
The televisions were new 40" LCDs with a decent HD channel selection, properly configured, although cheaping out and having Showtime and not HBO is an odd move.
The room service, at least for breakfast, had the lowest prices I have seen in a hotel in twenty years -- a full American breakfast for well under $10, and no delivery charge (20% mandatory gratuity added). A value in itself, and interesting as a business strategy. We stopped by the bar for a late night drink and dessert and were similarly impressed by low prices. (Room rate was good as well, a pricing trifecta).
The bad: uneven service on several dimensions.
That room service, even with its attractive pricing, was very poorly executed. The delivery time we'd specified on the door hanging card came and went the next morning, and a check outside the room revealed why: no one had picked it up, even though we'd left it there before 8 p.m. We called and placed the order, and when it arrived it was delivered with no water and (bizarrely) one paper packet of salt (for an order for four people including eggs and potatos) and no pepper. (The food was satisfactory, though.)
The Wi-Fi service was terrible even by the standards of hotel WiFi. Went in and out constantly, regularly requiring you to log back on, and had sub-3G bandwidth when it was on. We eventually gave up and used 3G on our devices.
The business center printer was too low on toner to print out acceptable bar-code documents for scanning (tickets, etc.)
Did not use the gym, eat in the restaurant at meal times, etc.
