We stayed one night with plans to hit Aquarium the next day. The location of the hotel directly across the street from the Aquarium is fantastic and the only thing that saved this review from falling below 3 stars. The hotel stay was nice as far as the room, comfort and cleanliness goes but there were a few complaints. The...

Thank you for sharing your recent stay on Trip Advisor. I am glad you enjoyed our convenient location. I do apologize for the slow elevators and issues with your guestroom. It was certainly a busy weekend in the hotel and in the city. I completely understand your frustration having to wait for elevators. We do have 1 elevator undergoing a...

Stayed here for work for a week. The location is unmatched--right where you want to be next door to a great mall, and across the street from the harbor. No shortage of restaurants in the area, and a lovely view out the fifth floor restaurant. Fully equipped hotel with pool, workout facilities, etc. During my whole 5 day stay one...

Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to review your stay on Trip Advisor. I do apologize for your negative experience.

The hotel is clean and cozy but there are 4 elevators and 2 are for parking and 2 for room floors. There was a constant wait which was annoying. Also the hotel used to have wifi and no longer does. Parking costs are extreme. With all that said the most disturbing part of the trip was the area. The inner...

We have stayed here several times over the past year. No need to drive to Baltimore and no car needed while there. We take Amtrak to Baltimore station, then take the FREE Charm Circulator bus from the train to within two blocks of the hotel on the Purple Route. Check in is always fast. At Christmas there were fireworks and...

The location of the hotel is fantastic as we were able to walk to almost everything we wanted to see, but that is were the positives ended. Based on the price and name brand, I expect much better service. Our room was dirty (someone's hair clip was found in one of the beds), our toiletries bottles were half empty, we...

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay on Trip Advisor. While I was happy to hear that you enjoyed our prime location, I was concerned and disappointed as I read the rest of your review. Allow me to apologize for the less than stellar condition of your guestroom. Please know that these housekeeping issues were addressed immediately....

I had three back to back reservations at this facility. Checked in Sunday evening and check out Thursday morning. This is my third time staying at the Renaissance hotel, but first time staying at this property in Baltimore. I stay at Marriott properties for all of my business travel. If you have not stay at the Renaissance, try them once....

This hotel is clean, with friendly staff, and a great location for a short family trip to Baltimore. It's at the harbor, where the water taxi will take you to Fort McHenry, Fell's Point, the Science Center and other locations. It's also connected to a mall and surrounded by a bunch of other shopping. One minus here - we spent...

The location is unbeatable. Right across the road from the national aquarium and connected to a mall. The rooms were OK... a little dated and were not as clean or new as I would have expected from the brand name hotel. The only negative I had was that the coffee bar in the lobby was not a real Starbucks... did...
