We stayed here overnight after an event at Camden Yards. It was a bit of a challenge to get to the valet from the direction we came during Friday night rush hour, but my husband persevered. The valet was friendly and professional, and reviewed the valet process. Check in was easy, and the staff were attentive and effecient. We are Marriott Gold members and it appeared our reservation was upgraded, which was terrific because many times there is not availability. The room was clean, spacious, and well appointed. The AC worked and was not too loud. The hotel is within walking distance, if you’re in ok shape, of the Inner Harbor and Camden Yards. The WiFi worked fine. Breakfast was ok, but a bit crowded, which meant some items were not available when we were there. We were also able to get a slightly late checkout which allowed us to enjoy the National Aquarium and grab lunch. All in all, it was a very good experience. The staff are excellent and the facility is terrific.
Good service, very nice breakfast, rooms up to the standard you expect. Good spot to stay if you want to explore the area on foot. Friendly service. Public transport nearby to get you further afield if desired.
