Elegant,close to everything,superior service

Simply superior! Exceded our expectations! Right next to the aquarium,to get any closer you would have to sleep in the dolphin pool! Attentive and courteous staff that went out of thier way to make us feel welcome. Beds comfy with tons of soft,feather pillows. Large flat screen tv and wine glasses along with complimentary Voss water. Clean,quiet,with a great view of the harbor. No complimentary breakfast but coffee is available in the lobby. The perfect choice for your next stay in the Inner Harbor!

Anniversary Getaway

The hotel is in an excellent location right between the downtown inner harbor section and Fells Point. There are many restaurants and activities within walking distance. The hotel was very clean with a very friendly staff and our room had a balcony overlooking the harbor.

Birthday vacation

I loved this hotel, I had a great view from balcony. The aquarium was feet away along with other sites and places to go. I also loved that we can bring our 2 small dogs.

Perfect Location

Pier 5 is a great hotel and is in the best spot around all the attractions. The staff is very nice and helpful in checking in and asking any kind of question. The decor is art deco meets 1990's style hotel. If your tall, then you will notice that the bathrooms are Japanese short shower/sink. Oh, good water pressure. It's in the PERFECT place surround by all tourist places. I would stay here again!!!

Beautiful location on the inner harbor

Excellent staff. Very friendly and helpful. Perfect location. Could invest in newer sheets. Rooms fairly small. But the location can't be best! Funky Art Deco style decor. Nice change from the chain hotels. Would stay there again.

Watch out for Harbor Magic

Nothing wrong with the hotel, but website led me to believe I was getting a harbor view room. Not true only some bar and dining passes. Only there for one night, staff tried to hook us up, rather misleading by the website.

Bad expierence

We booked two queen beds for my wife, my son, and myself. They only had 1 king bed room available at arrival. Hotel staff blamed the mistake on this booking site.... We filled out the room service card for a Mothers Day Breakfast and put it on the door handle 9pm the night before. At 7am the next morning we waited, and waited, until 8am. I opened our door and the order tag was still on the door handle... A phone call to front desk landed us a continental breakfast for 1. Boy are they smart... Seems to me that the hotel lacks proper managment.. We will never stay here again!
