Staff was very friendly. Free shuttle was perfect! Bar / restaurant in hotel would have made this a 5-star rating
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
Room was comfortable. Staff was affable. Parking convenient. Location is tricky if you're an explorer, which I am...but Uber's to and from harbor were around $7. Width ar conditioning on it still,felt humid in my room for some reason. Breakfast is sparse and a bit of a cluster f with everyone bumping into each other. Debi, who was working it, was very helpful though.
It was the location of my work conference, therefore I could pop downstairs easily in the morning. Upon check-in the front desk manager-in-training was quite rude when I nicely asked her if they had a king bed room available. Proceeded to talk down to me with very little respect and rolling her eyes. Even her colleagues seemed afraid of her. Had I paid for the hotel (and not my employer) I would have followed up. When I called room service to ask them for toilet paper, they gave me only one roll; and I even tipped well. On day of checkout someone knocked once on my door and proceeded to immediately open it at 7:30am (checkout is not until 12, mind you) waking me up and the door hitting the privacy lock hard. All she said was "checking out". I stated, yes- but not at 7:30 and closed the door. Completely terrible way to end my stay there. Upon conclusion of checking out, the same manager-in-training as was there initially gave me attitude when I AGAIN NICELY asked about the parking pass (as I had a certain days pass which was still valid yet the exit machine was attempting to charge me). I was quite nice about it, indicating that my final conference had just concluded and that my employer had covered the cost for the parking. She stated, "well it's charging you so you gonna have to pay". Worst customer service and attitude I have ever experienced. I am quite a passive person, so for me to feel this mistreated is completely based on the fact that it was terrible. Would definitely NOT recommend this hotel unless you want to be treated as if you were staying at a one star.
