Wonderful hotel. Staff, facilities were great. The only thing keeping this from a 5 score was a less than professional experience in Explorers Lounge on Sunday evening. Lack or courtesy and attentiveness by staff. Ordered food and no silverware offered. I ate 15 minutes with my hands. Bar was sticky, disheveled and cluttered. Fruit flies also. Gross

Hotel Awesome...Break Fast Not So Much!

Hotel staff, accommodations and pool were great. We loved our room with a view of the harbor, our daughter loved the pool but must admit we were very dissatisfied with the breakfast buffet on Sunday. At 10am many items in very small selection were out and not replenished until we were done, our waitress was hardly seen after getting our drinks...a walk to Panera would have been much better!

Heather, thank you for staying with us recently, and thank you for the thoughtful feedback about your experience. We're glad to see that you thoroughly enjoyed your hotel visit, from the spacious accommodations of your recently redesigned harborview guestroom with the amazing water views to the service from our dedicated team, and of course the fun of our indoor rooftop saltwater pool. I apologize for the poor service in Explorer's and the fact that the buffet was not properly replenished until your meal was nearly completed. I will share your comments with our restaurant and culinary teams, and we will strive to provide better service than this. I certainly hope that we have the opportunity to host your family again soon!

Perfect for family with young kids

The kids' museum is across the street. Kids will enjoy the pool which is only 5 feet deep. Parking is expensive ($26 per day plus tax) but on par with D.C. and Philly. The Charm City Circulator (free bus) has a stop right in front of the hotel so sightseeing is convenient. This is not Four Seasons but for the price, your basic amenities and needs are taken care of. I will recommend this hotel to others.

Top Notch Staff

Due to a recent surgery, I needed an ADA compliant room. Every aspect of the reservation was spot on. The hotel is immaculate, it's in a perfect location to access the Baltimore convention center and best of all, the staff was amazing. One young lady greeted me every night at my vehicle, took my bag and walked me to the elevator and even pressed my floor. The valet / bell staff is top notch professional. Kudos! And... THANK YOU for looking after me!
