There are two Holiday Inn’s at opposite ends of the Francis Scott Key Mall property. One is an Express, this is the normal Holiday Inn. Neither is connected to the mall.
I had a king size nonsmoking on the first floor. I was a tad worried walking down the hallway as the property felt old and the ceiling had plastic hanging (see photo). Not sure if they had water leaks (doubtful as this was first floor) or hallway upgrades. However upon entering the room I was happy to see a modern clean room. All was in working order.
This hotel has two floors. If you have any luggage, request a first floor room as there are no elevators. Only stairs.
It’s nice to see free internet for all guests. No wired connection, only wireless. Sadly, internet is outsourced to AT&T and for any problems they direct you to call the 800 number. I had a room at the end of the hall by an outside door and the wireless signal was spotty.
One outlet at the desk that is available through the lamp. No available outlets bedside without unplugging a lamp or clock. This is one of those frustrating parts of traveling that is so dang easy for hotel management to fix.
Both PM and AM front desk staff are awesome! PM staff was sympathetic of internet issues but said its out of their hands and I need to deal direct with AT&T. If there was a problem with power, would they also have me contact the power company direct???
Aside from the internet, this is a nice hotel with great staff.
