Go to the Kona Grill. Great food. Off the path from the crowd at the Inner Harbor. The Rusty Scupper although a bit expensive had great food and views. Also walkable.

I am a nurse from out of town. I usually stay at another hotel, but thought I'd try something different. Well....the best decision ever. The staff and the room were wonderful. I also enjoyed the food and bar. This is now my hotel when I stay in Baltimore. A Hopkins nurse

Interesting environment

The hotel definitely has an ancient feel. Although obviously renovated from its inception, it still feels old. the elevators move pretty slowly and do not line up evenly with the floors. The ironing board would not stay standing to its proper height. The door stop was broken in my room. there was also an old wash cloth hanging over the shower curtain. The hotel needs to implement a recycling program. The staff was very nice and friendly. It is nice that the hotel provides free internet access in the rooms. I appreciated that there was a snack machine, but would have preferred that it was not in the basement. The hotel location is a little obscure and could easily be missed. The closest parking garage is about a block away but is very ancient and a little eerie.

Great 4th of July Stay

The hotel was great! Parking is a bit expensive if you elect for valet, but there is a garage across the street that is less expensive. The check in was extremely quick and the staff was very friendly. The hotel was in great proximity to the harbor. The beds are very comfortable. The hot water took about 5 minutes to heat uupand the grout in the bathroom is 'intentionally' black which makes it feel a little dirty. Housekeeping is nice and respectful if you don't want your room cleaned. I will definitely stay here, again.

Family fun

I was quite impressed with this hotel. It has been recently updated and and our room was sleek and modern. Although the neighborhood is a bit scary after dark, it was only a brief walk to the Inner Harbor. The bakery in the lower lobby had these incredible fruit tarts that my son and I couldn't get enough of.

Older hotel that's been updated. Elevators are slow and can breakdown. When it happens, management was very accommodating and had free drink at the lounge during repair. Staff was great

Excellent Improvements

I've been staying at this hotel on and off since 2011 and they have really made major upgrades now! The lobby is redone as well as the French kitchen and the rooms are more modern too.

Business trip

I stayed here solo for a business conference happening at a hotel near the Inner Harbor. Unfortunately, neither I nor the conference organizers realized it was Preakness weekend until it was too late. Hotel prices were sky high for this weekend, and Lord Baltimore ended up being the "cheapest." Thus, it attracted a "cheap" crowd. My neighbors were loud until 3AM, which did not make me a happy camper. But, I had earplugs, so that worked out. Any other weekend, this hotel would be a gem. Rooms are large and comfortable. Bed was very nice. I didn't spend a lot of time in the room, but I know I could have with no problem. It was about a 10 minute walk to my conference at the Inner Harbor. Some folks might think this hotel is in the 'hood, which it kind of is -- but I personally did not feel unsafe even walking alone as a woman. If you practice safe judgement, you should be fine.

Great location and value

I was in Baltimore just for one night. The Lord Baltimore had speedy check-in, easy to use WiFi and clean rooms. Be prepared to go out for meals, as there isn't room service despite having a restaurant in the hotel. Overall it was a pleasant stay.
