Could not have been more pleased with a 2night stay here over Memorial Day weekend.
Beginning with a phone call to ensure bed/room preferences, service was impeccable: friendly, courteous, professional. Parking was attached, covered, and free. Check-in at 6p was fast (2-3mins). Kate at the front desk explained the club-level amenities/schedules and we were off to the room. Check-out at 10a was just as fast.
Room on 11th floor was bright with a view south over the Towson Town Center -- the attached, upscale shopping center. No street noise audible. 2 beds non-smoking as promised (be advised Baltimore is not a smoke-free city, you will notice this if you go out to any local bar down the street). TV with internet and HBO, desk, sitting area with two sofa chairs. Bedding very comfortable (Sweet Sleeper Beds) with a variety of pillows (4+ each bed). Bathroom adequate, with an bowed shower curtain to provide more room in the shower. Shower head adjustable.
Three things to nit-pick about the room: 1) sound from next room was easily heard coming through the door that would open had they been unlocked to form adjoining rooms (e.g. for a family). 2) A/C was adequate but not cold (this was on a 95deg day). Somehow the hallway was always cooler than we could make our room. 3) Shower handle was a bit finicky and needed a precise position to stop from dripping.
Club was on the 12th floor, open late afternoon for snacks & beverages: fruit plate, veggie & cheese plate, excellent cake, water/soda. The only pay items were beer/wine. Club was also open during early morning with bagels/muffins/danishes/starbucks coffee/apple & orange juice. Other Club amenties were various sitting areas, a picturesque northern view, plasma TV, computer/fax/printer.
Free wifi internet with perfect connectivity throughout the hotel (option to stay within their network or get an IP of your own). I used my laptop between the Club and room and didn't ever lose connection.
Pool and fitness center exist but we never went to that level (3?). 1st floor has a bar and restaurant and several conference rooms which were busy with weddings/parties all weekend. There is also a gift shop, but we also didn't use it. Instead we walked into the mall for all our shopping needs.
Location was a big plus for us. Immediately off the beltway 695. Easy access to downtown via 83 from 695. Superb jumbo crabs and service at Ocean Pride Seafood Restaurant one exit away on York Rd. Definitely serendipity that Obrycki's was closed in rememberance of Memorial Day that we had to find another option. Nice not-too-smokey pool hall with excellent wings and plenty of TVs at the circle just south of hotel (3x10wings + a few Stellas for $20 incl tip).
