Valet service for 30 a day was best option for parking and staff was prompt. The furniture was ripped. Down comforter was ripped. Bottom of toilet was dirty. Room was by an alley so was a nosey Monday morning with trash pick up. No need for a Wakeup call that's for sure. And could smell exhaust fumes in room that morning as well.
My only complaint is that the computers did not seem to be working in the office area. Otherwise, it was a great experience!
I liked that we could get place to place with no problems in our car. But it wasn't anything too special. I didn't like the rude valet people I didn't like the bed or the room I didn't like that they came in our room without asking did we want it to be cleaned. I would have rather stayed at The Ebassy Sweets in Baltimore I could have splurged and gave them that extra $100 and would have had a better nights rest. Also I didn't like that you could hear the street people yelling outside of room 1018. Over all I would not stay here again. THIS IS A ONE NIGHT AND KEEP IT MOVING TYPE OF HOTEL!
Beautiful and comfortable hotel, staff was very accommodating and kind, good location
Upon check in, Ashlie greeted us and made sure we were well taken care of. Our West Point cadet was to meet us and she saw to it that he would not have to sleep on the ground as wel were previously told by front desk when I previously called. A big hug to Ashlie for being so kind and making our stay very comfortable and easy.
Had a very nice getaway to the Lord Baltimore a few weeks ago. The location is great - just blocks from the Inner Harbor. Very clean, modern look and even home to a nice bar in the downstairs. Shower curtains didn't hold back the water. We had a floor full of water after the first shower. Also, no hair dryers in the room.
Attended a wedding held here at the hotel, that was great and held in the ballroom with cocktail hour on the mezzanine level, a beautiful setting indeed! Room was fine with a comfortable bed, location to the Inner harbor and Convention Center is excellent. Everything was fine.
Excellent Restaurant Excellent Staff
The architecture of the building was stately and held historical significance, while the interior had many, stylistic, and modernized updates. The foyer and main lobby were visually stunning. The parking attendants were helpful, and the overnight fee was only fifteen dollars, excellent for the city. The room was clean and comfortable. We went to our room to discover that it was not the King Deluxe room that I booked online. I was informed that the booking had not come through as a King Deluxe; I verified that I had been charged for the King Deluxe. The gentleman from the front desk apologized and offered to change the room ; I declined since my wife and son were already settled. He did give me a credit to the restaurant.
The valet guys were the best of the entire hotel. Was given attitude by the staff. Requests and complaints were ignored. Got double charged on my card. Would not stay again.
Good, central location Rooms were comfortable and well equipped Bed was comfy Staff was friendly Noisy street, could hear sirens all night long
Lobby space, staff, food options all excellent Rooms are old but clean with excellent bedding and sheet. 3 star bathrooms but clean. Fine maid service.
I've been to a few Embassy Suites, I enjoy a few drinks, best bar staff and cocktail offering I've experience at an ES. I never made it to the breakfast. I didn't want to spoil my appetite for the nearby Vietnamese food, it was sooooo good. The snacks at the manager's reception were disappointing. Couldn't adjust the temperature in the room. There wasn't a fan in the bathroom... All minor stuff really, would definitely stay there again.
Stay was FAB - U - LOUS! I had read other reviews and would agree. Clean, spacious rooms. Cable plus. nice towels. Food from restaurant was good. Polite, speedy check-in and out. Gym was current. Slept so good, I missed the breakfast. I heard it was great too. Only suggestion, would be wifi included.
Good breakfast, suites are spacious and not that expensive.
My overall experience was okay but the parking was confusing. I would've liked for my parking to be free for staying with the hotel, especially because the rooms are pricy. I stayed at the Embassy in Philly and for $50 more I had a balcony, an extra bed and a larger living room area. I think this place is only valuable because of the location. I was able to walk to the lounge my boyfriend and I went to so that was great, was only seven minutes from our destination. There's not many late night food options though, we ended up driving to IHOP around 1 a.m. and it was a 20 minute drive.
Gave us the wrong room but charged us for the other one. Terrible customer service!
The bed, the kitchenette, the temperature control, the quiet; the breakfast buffet, the staff.
Complimentary drinks, great breakfast, staff was excellent People smoking outside the door, is disgusting
Staff was accommodating, polite, professional. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. I would absolutely stay here again and highly recommend it.
Exceptional quality suite Beautfiul furnishings Impeccable front desk and staff service Not as close to the inner harbor as advertised
Great breakfast, close proximity to the inner harbor AC didn't work very well, and the tv in the room was strangely placed where you couldn't watch it from the couch or bed
Convenience and quiet Distance from elevator to rooms is excessive.
Great location! Welcoming and very helpful staff! Large & Clean room. Will definitely stay again. Can't say anything bad about our stay.
Location was perfect We needed a new remote control for tv and staff ca,e up immediately. All staff was by friendly Our room desperately needs new mattresses. 11018 as soon as you walked in you could tell because of the lumps. Everything else was wonderful.
The location was great. Across the street from the harbor. The staff was helpful and friendly.
The view in the room, the room's cleanliness; the design, the staff , the convenience re :parking
Ok. Busy weekend. Crowded elevators and lobby.
Clean rooms. Accomodating staff. Let me check in early.
After paying over 300 hundred a night, they ofer you a view upgrade for an extra 40 a night, which is fine is a beautiful view of the harbor, but you have to pay an extra 30 dollars a day to park your car. And when I ask the offer me the internet for free but since the person that checked me in was not there they tried to backed out of it saying that there was no way they could give it to me for free because it was 15 more a day. The people at front desk were very, very rude. Except when you are checking in and they are trying to sell you something.
Nice hotel in a great location - easy access to the inner harbor! Nothing
Nice room, pool was great, location in the heart of it all!! Very secure also. Nothing
All employees were very helpful. They freely provided helpful information pertaining to how to get to places and great info as to where to dine within a short walk. Unfortunately we had an issue with our room reservation and this did not sit well with us since we were traveling with our young son. We made a reservation that included a king bed. When we checked in they informed us that they "over-booked and did not have any rooms available with king beds. We informed them that we made the reservation that way because we needed the room for our son. Didn't matter. They did compensate us by giving us free/complementary breakfast and snacks but that didn't change our feelings or put us in a room with a king bed. We were given a room with two double beds and we made it work but it was not as convenient. We will seriously take this into consideration if and or when we use this site or make another reservation.
Great room and staff. Location is great Maybe we were just there on a bad weekend, but there were a lot of rowdy kids at the hotel. Noise was a problem.
start at the start there no way from the parking to the hotel with out going outside this is wong and nothing tell you this?? it said bar in room wong.
Great price for the location and on a weekend too!! Room was facing street which was very noisy for 6am- 9am on a Saturday, trash pickup, street cleaning and another loud construction truck nearby but otherwise no complaints on behalf of the hotel staff or facilities!
- location and fun atmosphere - nice tv - great amenities like bikes to rent and live music - easy to book - awesome soap in a very large bathroom - tile floor in bathroom with no door to bathroom and hardwood in entrance and around the bed. easy to clean. - made to look modern and minimal - GF claimed to be bitten by bed bugs. - The potatoes with the RL breakfast were soggy and the egg whites in the skinny scramble were under cooked. - closet was odd with downward sloping hangers too small for business jackets, no dressers. - too few electrical outlets. in order to charge your phone you had to place it under the tv all outlets next bed were overloaded with phone lamp and alarm clock.
Large comfortable room. Friendly, helpful staff. No closet, shelves or drawers, so no place to put things like laundry out of sight! No desk (although when I inquired they brought up a small table and chair that worked OK). Instead of the Murphy bed (which I had no use for) I would prefer a desk and dresser or cupboard.
I couldn't have asked for more from the Red Lion. Gorgeous rooms, wood floors (a HUGE plus for me because of my allergies), a shockingly short walk to the Charm City Circulator's Purple line, wonderful and warm staff who go beyond the call of duty, and all for a very low last minute price!! I am also very picky about hotel beds as I have a bad back but this bed was everything I wanted. Not to mention all of the communal amenities I simply did not have a chance to check out because my trip was short! There is, apparently, a 24 hour gym and the lobby seems to be a wonderful place to relax, socialize, and create a sense of a hotel community. The Red Lion seems equiped to foster vacation friendships one would expect of an extended resort stay on an island somewhere, despite the fact that it is located in the heart of Baltimore. If anyone I know ever needs a hotel in Baltimore, I will insist they stay at the Red Lion. Honestly, my only qualm was that I only booked a room for one night. Had I known how wonderful my accommodations would be, I may have extended my trip! Oh, and a full body mirror would be nice, but its absence was in no way a deal breaker.
Stayed in a huge king bed room. Lots of empty space that could have been filled with a couch and coffee table with the TV in front of it. But they chose to place the TV to the right side of the bed making it awkward to watch. With this tiny one person mini couch directly under the TV. ..What the point of that? The front desk staff need a little more training. And a button or something indicating that they work there. They're all in regards clothes. A guy looking to check in thought I worked there when I went down to see what was the hold up on the extra towels I called down for 2 hours prior.
I liked the bikes for use, the game room, the lounge/cafe/restaurant. I also appreciate the stage for community engagement and fitness room. The room itself was small but had a large, luxurious bathroom. It didn't have a business center. I had to ask the front desk attendant to print items for me. Parking was additional and somewhat expensive.
All staff were extremely friendly. Valet (Jody) went above and beyond to assist and always had a smile on his face. Decor is appealing and modern, the rooms were spacious and nicely done. Pets are allowed however if you are traveling without a pet you would never know dogs are in the building in regards to cleanliness and the occasional bark. Close proximity to all attractions. Elevator security features were a plus. Would definitely stay again Bedding had stains, no mini fridge or microwave in the room, check-in a little awkward
Loved the decor and atmosphere!
The urban element There was limited hot water in the shower at times. Having some sort of room service would be nice.
We really enjoyed our stay. The layout and design of their "lobby" was very modern with an industrial twist to the decor. They don't have the typical imposing front desk. Instead staff meets you at the door with a tablet and checks you in. The elevators are extra secure with room key only access. There is valet parking which is extra, but well worth it as we would have spent the same or thereabouts at a parking garage. Our room was amazing and nicely decorated. Excellent bed, excellent shower, but next time we will bring a cooler. Our room had a great view and was very close to the venue at Rams Head Live where we were headed. The next day there was a great band playing in the lobby so we stayed longer for that too. Most of all their staff was incredible!!! They were always friendly, knowledgeable, and ready to do anything for you. That includes the maid in the elevator who gave us the history of the building and the head engineer who was helping out in their great bar/restaurant when they were way overloaded with people. Great experience from beginning to end. We can't wait to come back.
It was a great hotel with an interesting history. It was in a good location within easy walking distance to waterfront destinations, the convention center and the subway is across/down the street too. The bathroom and hotel room was really spacious. We would stay there again. Really the only thing my husband and I didn't like was that the shower doesn't have a door only a partial glass wall, but it was no big deal.
Clean, rooms are huge, bathroom was great, so many both towels! It's still Baltimore... You can walk to 7/11 but still be mindful of where you are at.
The staff was really nice. Not a big deal but there wasn't a remote control in the room. We had to call for one which was brought up fairly quickly.
Classy building built in 1906. Rooms nicely appointed. Top notch service and friendly and helpful staff. Closet doors stuck. In-room safe didn't work. DIYers would not feel too comfortable here.
Location and staff were very friendly and gave recommendations for local restaurants. Our room keys for some reason kept giving errors, they would alternate so we would have at least one working key at any given time. So the staff was very used to seeing us.
The free coffee in the morning and yoga mat in the room. Had to request coffee in the room. I wish you could do that when you book the place so it's there when you check in.
Everything!! No problems.
I liked the location. I had booked a deluxe king room and prepaid. When I arrived I was told that there were no more deluxe king rooms available and the only room available had two beds and bunk beds. Confused I showed the gentleman behind the desk my conformation with room type and he told me that there was no guarantee on room type. He was rude and said thats all they had and if I didn't want it I could stay somewhere else. When I got into the room, there was an entire wall with a dog mural staring at me. The room wasn't clean, carpet dirty, hair in sink, then I walked into the bedroom and it is the strangest decor I have ever seen. Hip doesn't mean nothing matches and the most unattractive color palate ever! The furniture was visibly beat up, scratched and marks all over. The wall had multiple black marks all over and the toilet was running. I put my things down and headed to the front desk before leaving for dinner to advise them of the running toilet. Upon my return 2 hours later, as I opened the door to my room and the toilet was still running and I went to call the desk. My room was facing the the windows of other hotel rooms and I found myself rushing to close the curtains because a man across the way was watching me and being "self serving" - not the hotels fault, I know, but very creepy none the less. I wet down to the desk to ask about my toilet and the new gentleman at the desk said he had no record of my earlier complaint and there was no one from engineering to be able to fix it. I asked for another room and he said there weren't any, so I went upstairs and promptly checked out at 12:30 am, off to find another hotel. I asked not to be charged, but since I had prepaid, he said there was nothing he could do.
Very helpful staff, great, clean and cozy room. We appreciated the rollaway, which was really far beyond the cot-like thing we had sort of expected (we added another person to the room after making the reservation, so knew it would be tight). We really appreciated the help with that and with extra toothpaste/brush. Thankful that quality is always high across any Kimpton hotels I've stayed at. It seemed like it would have been helpful if there were more staff on-hand at peak times for check-in, etc. Staff was great and helpful, but having worked at a front desk, this one seemed like it could have benefited from a few more people.
I was attending a conference for most of the trip, and my partner also joined to check out local sites. It was a decent location within walking distance to a number of good restaurants and museums. The room was somewhat small and the floor appeared to not have been vacuumed in a while (as noted by the dozens of small beads that were from a bracelet of a former inhabitant). I find the sliding bathroom door to be somewhat unusual since it didn't allow for privacy in the slightest. Lastly, we had to go to the front desk once a day to get the room key cards re-magnetized, so that we could enter the elevator to the room and our room.
The staff were great - so friendly and helpful. The hotel room was clean and beautiful, and very unique. Awesome shower, and overall we loved it.
the staff was fabulous!!!he room was great exceptfor the lighting.There was a great chair to read in but no lamp there.Te room was too dark.Other than that, it was great.
Very satisfied overall, especially with the breakfast and the coffee station that was stocked at least until 5:00 PM. Room was very spacious, and comfortably held three of us. The key car I had quit working four or so times over just a few days, which was frustrating.
Perfect room for the money spent Police sirens sounding off all the time
Plenty of room
Awesome bathrooms, clean rooms, breakfast delivered to my door, bed size,friendly staff, the whole nine yards Sound of cars at night(second floor)
Everything. Staff was SUPER friendly! The room was more than we expected. Enjoyed the decor. Parking was easy and included. Breakfast was served to our room on time. . Placing as our number 1 place to stay when we come back to Baltimore.
Beautiful, luxurious room with amazing hot tub. Great location, extremely friendly staff, and delicious breakfast included!
Loved everything about this hotel. Will come back every time I come to visit my daughter here in college.
Convenient location. Not necessarily the cleanest hotel.
The staff was extremely friendly and helped to make everything about my stay as convenient as possible. The interior, ambiance, decor and architecture were beautiful and opulent. The location to the harbor was awesome and just enough out of the way to not seem like I was on top of everything. I was not disturbed once by housekeeping when I was in my room. For the prices I paid it was definitely worth it. I didn't have a microwave or refrigerator inn my room which I think should be standard in all rooms. Out was hard for nude to keep drinks and left over food or snacks cold and I had to go downstairs to heat up my food. They accommodated more when and I asked for early check in because I arrived earlier then I planned. I also like that check out is at noon and not earlier and they didn't rush me to leave past noon. The bed was super comfortable, one of the best I've ever slept in. I liked that they had a little store also because my allergies were acting up and I was able to get meds. The free breakfast in the morning was very delicious. Also free coffee 24/7 was very nice. I would like them to provide free water bottles also. The complimentary shampoo, conditioner, and lotion were all name brand which I think is important and appreciated.the only real gripe I have is the elevator. There was only 1 for my side of the building. It took awhile sometimes but that's hardly a big deal. All in all I would stay there again. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. They also had a really beautiful outdoor patio with a fire pit but I did not partake. I also never knew if there was a pool and I would have used it I've I had a longer and not so busy stay. If they don't have one they should. I can't wait to stay there again. Nothing except that elevator.
The breakfast buffet was large and clean. Fresh options and heavier breakfast items both offered. The oatmeal and juice bar were a nice surprise. All the employees were very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately there was road construction outside the hotel and only being on the fifth floor, it was easy to hear.
Good rooms, not on the harbour but near it,
The staff was very courteous and dependable. The room was very well maintained. I enjoyed relaxing in the waiting room.
We really were so pleased with this hotel. Very reasonable rate for such a beautiful hotel in a wonderful location with a great view of the harbor. Also, although we didn't use the ferry it was so convenient and I'm sure if we had stayed longer we would have taken the ferry at some point. Everything was great. We'd actually be willing to pay a little more to have breakfast included. That's always such a perk and my family loves having breakfast in the hotel. They prefer not having to go out and search for a breakfast spot, but honestly, we're just not willing to pay the $12.95 a person for the breakfast that was offered at this Hampton Inn.
in their complamentary letterthey mentioned the shuttle charge from airport is 43$ but in reallity it was 90$,the breakfast so traditional and not much items to choice
The desk staff couldn't possibly have been more helpful. They noticed a tired traveler and didn't let him make any serious mistakes. The room was large and spacious, and the temperature was perfect.
We loved how close it was in walking distance to the inner harbor. The breakfast was fantastic! We loved our stay. The staff was so nice, and the hotel was beautiful. Just that we were in a room near the elevator which isn't ideal when you are trying to put little ones to bed early, but that is an easy fix of just requesting a room away from there.
Very close to all attractions breakfast was awesome
For the price, the place was clean enough, close walk to the harbor and fine for a few night stay The facilities weren't great, particularly the hot water was lukewarm at best
No elevator service for my whole 4 days' stay and I stay on the 5th floor No new towel for 3 days The TV remote control is not working and the front desk promised to fixed it but it never return No battery in the thermostat and battery is not available in front desk One card key prepared for two customers None smoking room but cigarette butt on stairwell Strong ammonia smell in stairwell etc
The hotel and rooms were clean. Very close to all major downtown Baltimore venues including the Convention Center, Aquarium, Inner Harbor, etc. Rooms are small. Location is a little rough. Travel with a group for safety.
The hotel staff were very pleasant and polite. The condition of this hotel is poor. Light fixtures broken. Elevator not in proper working order. The bathroom still had shampoo bottles from the last guests on the top ledge in the shower. The bed was comfortable. The pillows were aweful and small and lumpy and old. The whole place. The staff is very nice.
Pretty dumpy but for the price it is understandable. Everything was working in our room but the beds weren't very comfortable. Some makeup stains on the towels and it was located in a sketchy part of Baltimore.
Nothing Elevator didn't work you had to take the stairs, sheets on bed had stains on it, window looked out onto a brick wall approx 6 inches away, alarm on door went off every 20 seconds. The guy at the desk was nice he refunded our money and told us he didn't blame us for leaving
Staff was fantastic for all that my group put them through (we needed several extra blankets and towels, realizing this in two trips). Room was quiet, but only suitable for one adult. Staff was also kind enough to call a cab for us when we were running late so the cab could meet us when we got to the lobby; this ended up making all the difference in the world. Room was VERY small, there were small blood stains on the sheets and one of the pillows, wasn't crazy about the air conditioner in the room, bathroom had NO circulation whatsoever (so after a shower it was too humid to breathe) and bathroom door was as creaky as something out of a horror movie, so it woke everyone up whenever someone had to take a bathroom run in the middle of the night.
The beds were comfortable, but also had no Comforters. The rope light flickering mood wall was cool to look at since a previous guest had smashed the TV and it didn't even turn on. The sink didn't drain, there was no climate control whatsoever (there was a programmable thermostat in the room, but I don't think it was attached to anything) so, would advise against staying here late may- early October unless you like sleeping in extreme heat. TV was 100% broken, but luckily the wifi worked so I could watch Internet TV. Staff did 0 to change anything. I'm really surprised Best Western has their name on this place. As a traveller with low standards this place has exceeded them. Don't ignore the reviews like I did. Or you too will end up brushing your teeth in the bath tub.
That it was close to the royal farms Arena for our concert The place was run down, I never though hotels like this existed. Some doors wouldn't close all the way or lock. The front desk said that if our room wasn't clean they would have to move us to a different hotel??? What? I booked my room a month in advance. My wife and I had friends staying also and when they got to their room the front door was broken so it wouldn't close or lock and the room was still dirty. The elevator had a mind of its own and wouldn't even goto the floor you selected... Press 3 it will take you to 6. This place is not for anyone to stay at period. Spend the extra $15 and go somewhere else.
The only thing positive I can find to say about this hotel is that it wasn't infested with bugs. I'm still not sure why, given the complete absence of cleaning services. Room was need of repair: door deadlock wouldn't latch, shower door replaced by curtain held by pipe clamps, broken towel rack, peeling wall paper, sticky floor and elevator. No cleaning service for entire week. Took 24+ hours to get broken glass picked up, small shards still in carpet. Desk staff inactive and indifferent. Wifi slower than a fax machine. Would not provide alternative room nor offer refund.
The bed The view and cramped hallways
I Love The Presentation Of It All..... The Flashing Lights On The Headboard Was Awesome.... It Made Our Stay Romantic, Sexy And Was Something To Look Forward To. The Water Didn't Really Get Hot.
I loved everything about Blancnoir. From the time we arrived to the time we left it was very comfortable and inviting. We were welcomed right away. It had a home feel to it rather than the feeling of a hotel where you check in and go about your way. The knew which reservation I was and what room I was in. I would highly recommend this to anybody looking for a relaxing weekend away. We were only about a 5 minute walk from a lot of restaurants and plenty of things to do. The location couldn't have been any better, no busy streets right outside with a bunch of noise. The breakfast was a bit different being that we didn't know anybody at the table but it was fun once we started talking to one another. I will definitely be going back for another visit in the near future
As others have described, surrounding neighborhood not the best. But very clean, comfortable room. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Shuttle service was a nice feature, as well as complimentary breakfast in the morning. Overall, good value for the price point.
Clean, close to inner harbor. Needs more free parking.
I loved the shuttle. The drivers were excellent and informative. So nice not to have to take a cab everywhere!
I had to attend a conference in Baltimore and I knew that I would end up spending most of my time at the conference venue or being out with the conference attendees. So, I wanted a reasonably priced hotel in walking distance from the place where the conference venue (Inner Harbor). I chose this hotel because it looked decent on the internet and was about 60% the price of the conference hotel (and this included free internet). I was not disappointed. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised from the room, both from its cleanliness and its furniture: it looked very nice. The breakfast, which was included in the price, was nothing special but still I could start the day without having to search for something to eat at 7:00. Overall, value for money
Hotel was so close to the Inner Harbor one could walk there. Loved the look of the lobby, so grand and gorgeous. The parking was very limited but we did find space across the street in the street.
The breakfast and the refridegerator in tne room. Free internet is a must and it worked very well.
Staff was very friendly. Free shuttle was perfect! Bar / restaurant in hotel would have made this a 5-star rating
Clean, great staff, free breakfast, comfortable bed Location is a bit sketchy, lots of homeless people around the hotel, but they never cause any problem during our stay
Everything: room, breakfast, close and affordable on-street parking Nothing....
