The location of this hotel is fantastic - Federal Hill is a total Italian enclave but within walking distance of the city centre. I like appartment hotels, too, but this one is seriously flawed. The decor is entirely white - white walls, floors, curtains, furniture. It's a bit like living inside a fridge. The first room they gave us smelled of cigarette smoke (can you believe any idiot smokes in a hotel these days?) so they moved us to another, which was bit darker and pokier. the windows didn't oen and the room was hot and stuffy, even in October. However, the main problem is noise. All the floors have cerami tile floors and there is little sound-proofing. The woman in wooden soled shoes and a large wheeled suitcase who checked into the room above us at 1 am would have wakened the dead, et salne us. By the time she had gone to bed, it was 3 am and the hen party group cameack from club to party some more. The enxt niht we got moved to the two bedroom suite with balcony on the top floor - frsh air and no-one above us. I wouldn't dismiss this place out of hand but avoid weekends and ask for a room on the top floor.
