Ranked #40 of 67 Hotels in Baltimore
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Hotel is in a great location, very short walk to Mt. Vernon nightlife. It's an old building, but it's in good shape and has lots of old charm to it (hey, it *is* Charm City after all!).

The room was large and had lots of windows with good views of downtown and beautiful West Baltimore. Bathroom was bigger than usual too. Everything was very clean and well-kept. Free wifi. No hair dryer.

Front desk staff was great, very quick and easy check in/out. Only bad thing was that my wife and I were put in a room with 2 double beds, not 1 king bed. We didn't bother to complain, but I'm sure they would have moved us if we'd have asked.

Didn't eat at the restaurant, but grabbed a drink at the bar, which was nice as well.

I have also stayed at the Mount Vernon Hotel, 2 blocks south of here... and I think the Peabody Court is all-around a much better option.

If you like classy old hotels, check out the Peabody Court. I know that I'll be back!

The title says it all. The hotel was nice. It had a good location and was within reasonable walking distance from the inner harbour. The valet staff (was one guy) and he was very friendly. The front desk was not so eager to please but they were nice enough. The maids flat out avoided cleaning at all. We were there for 3 days and our room was cleaned once. There is no parking. If you call they will tell you that there is street parking available and if you are very lucky there is but most of it is meter parking and there is a 2 hour limit.

There was hair in the bathroom sink and sugar all over the table with the coffee maker on it. Other than that the room was nice enough for the price. The location is not ideal if you want to do inner harbor touristy stuff but its not a bad cab ride (or walk weather permitting). There weren't many options for dinning the immediate area but again options were a short cab ride away.

Stayed here with my husband just one night (3/29/12) for a wedding and was quite satisfied. The hotel is one of those older (historic?) hotels that has been well maintained. Not elaborate but very nice. I was immediately impressed by service of the valet team who could not have been nicer. Same for front desk staff. Our room was very nicely appointed and also very clean. Not huge but comfortable for two people. Nice view of the city. Comfy beds. Really quite nice and reasonably priced. We had breakfast in the hotel restaurant with all the wedding people (group of about 15-20) without prior arrangements and I can't say enough about the patience of our server. Believe me I don't think I could have been as kind! Only two complaints: never could get wifi although for the short stay I didn't follow up with front desk so... My second complaint is that the bar stops serving around 11 which is quite early. Not realizing, we ordered shortly before that and before even finishing 1 glass of wine were told we needed to leave and would have to bring our drinks down to the lobby or to a small table in the hallway to finish?!? Don't know if that is somehow related to their liquor license but it was annoying. Aside from that though a very nice stay.

Good Afternoon! We appreciate the feedback!! I apologize for the bar not being open longer for you!! George's at Mt. Vernon is open until after Midnight (food service ends at 10:00pm) however, based on the nightly business it could possibly close before then!! But, you should never have to leave before you finish your wine!!!! We hope you enjoyed the wedding and please come back to see us again soon:) Have a great day!

I picked this hotel originally based on value, but they met and exceeded our expectations. From the car service they recommended from BWI to the friendly hotel staff we were not disappointed. From the moment we walked through the door to the time we left we were met with first class service along the way. We were traveling with young Kids and the staff was great to them. Although this hotel is a short distance from the harbor, it was nice not having to deal with the chaos of the harbor. It was just a short ride away on the free circulator from the harbor and short light rail ride to Camden yards. I would highly recommend this hotel and as a person who works in the service industry I have high expectations.

We stayed at the Wyndham 4/7-4/10/12

The Good:
Staff- Very friendly and eager to be helpful
Price- We paid 84 per night
The Bad:
Hotel décor- very old and dated (carpets were worn/torn and dirty, unfinished painting in stairwells)
Very small elevators- a family of 4 with luggage cannot ride the elevator at the same time
Hot soda in vending machines
The Ugly:
There was a mouse in our room! We had to pack all of our things at 3am and move to another room. The hotel gave us free breakfast for one day as compensation- Big Deal!!! We should have gotten a free night. We will not return to this hotel.

Thank you for your review!! As we are a historic boutique property circa 1928 we do try to maintain the vintage decor that was and is the style for our neighborhood!! We certainly clean and upgrade our features as best we can without losing our old-time feel:) We regret to hear in this capacity that compensation of breakfast was not satisfactory for your inconvenience. Upon your return, please let us know so that we can meet your expectations. Have a great day!!

This hotel is in an older building and the rooms are tastefully appointed and well kept. I booked two rooms and while one had a nice street view form two window, the other one was completely devoid of any natural light since it faced an adjoining building.

Check in was pretty painless - I was able to get into one room early and the front desk called me when the other was ready. I was also given a list of local restaurants.

The location is pretty good - it is right around the corner from the Walters Museum, which is free and a lot of fun for the kids. The waterfront/pier area is about a $10 taxi ride each way but is also accessible by public transport. We had our car with us (valet parking at the hote is $29/day) but did not want to deal with finding parking.

Bathrooms are clean and spacious with a nice selection of Bath and Body Works toiletries, hair dryer and towel warmer.

Bed were a little too soft and pillows were too clumpy for my taste.

Wi-fi was horribly slow, even by typical hotel standards.

Printer in the business center needed new toner.

The room service is reasonably priced and only adds a 20% gratuity (no delivery charge) There is no mini bar or microwave, but there is complimentary bottled water and coffee/tea. HOWEVER, the room service cards were never picked up from our doors. The next morning I ordered over the phone and the food came rather quickly but it was cold! At least the food was pretty good!

Overall this is a charming, clean hotel with some service hiccups that I hope the management can improve upon. Everyone we encountered was gracious and helpful - this place can be even better than it is!

Room Tip: Dont get room 401 -this room has windows that face brick walls and have no sunlight at all.
