I've had very negative views of Holiday Inn hotels based on a bad experience that I had decades ago. (I know, get over it.) Anyway, I was "forced" to stay here because a family member was having surgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital and my preferred hotel was closed for renovations. Well, this place was great and I'm now willing to...

My family and I recently stayed here for a couple of days. We had never been to Baltimore before so I really did my research before going. We chose this hotel because it was the only one with a refrigerator AND a microwave in every room, it is all non smoking, and the parking fee is only $15 per day...

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit as soon as I walked into the hotel. I was promptly greeted by JR who was super friendly, patient, and went above and beyond in answering all my questions and helping me with the check-in process/shuttle sign-up. I immediately felt comfortable and right at home. They have a shuttle service that takes you anywhere within...

The hotel itself is good. Being renovated from an old bank building, the lobby is pretty amazing - with high ceiling and big columns that give you a magnificent feeling upon entry. The guest room is spacious and well appointed, up to the standard of Holiday Inn. The staff members were friendly and helpful. As an IHG Spire Elite Member,...

Our stay was great. The room was clean, quiet, and the bed comfortable. We loved the breakfast and looked forward to it each morning. The staff was always pleasant, and we had a friendly van ride to our destination. We look forward to another stay. PS- The meal delivered by a nearby restaurant was delicious!

On my latest trip I have experienced a couple Holiday Inns that did not meet expectations as well as others that do. This one in Baltimore is what is expected for this price point. Everything at the hotel was nice and no complaints. Bed good, wifi good, breakfast good, maintenance good. The neighborhood is a bit rough but not to...

We booked this hotel because it had low cost parking, free wifi, and said it was close to inner harbor. We arrived and were told there was no parking. We booked two rooms and there was only room for one car. They suggested we feed a meter and park on the street.The front desk service was rude and not helpful....

What I loved most about the hotel was the people working there. Everyone was friendly and exceedingly helpful. Everything was clean and neat. Wow the van driver she rocked! I would go back and stay there again.

I had a great experience at Holiday Inn Downtown. Chef Elliott was awesome, very friendly and the food was great. My family really enjoyed our experience and would definitely stay again. I hope Chef Elliott is there the next time we visit. Awesome service.

I booked this hotel last minute after deciding to go to Baltimore. I made my decision based on location to Downtown and cost. Once the reservation was made I checked the reviews on Yelp and was a little hesitant. That skepticism all went away once my company and I arrived and checked in. We arrived Saturday September 17th around noon...
