The front desk personnel were friendly and accommodating. They seem to work as a team. I have stayed at many Holiday Inns, however, this location has exemplary employees. The shuttle service to Johns Hopkins hospital was a real plus. All drivers were very helpful. Tina and Erika were extremely pleasant and caring. Their genuine concern was really appreciated. I highly...

My church traveled to Baltimore and we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. What a great choice! The hotel is beautiful! Our room was over sized with lots of windows.
