Anniversary Weekend

Wish we would have been given a little better view of the harbor especially for the price of the room. Great location to get around the inner harbor.

Well located

Stayed overnight to tale in an Orioles game, see the new casino, and enjoy the harbor. Although it's quite a hike to the stadiums and casino, its very close to the Power Plant shops like Philips and B&N books, also the Aquarium though we didnt visit this time, and for us that area was much less hectic than where the Hyatt/Marriott, etc. are located. Room was nice, breakfast staff in the lobby were very, very polite and helpful (and reasonable prices!). Single dislike: there are parking lots literally next door with 24-hour fees that I guess are OK ($22/day); but no in/out privileges meaning the meter starts again each time back in. Would be better if the hotel sold or rented a swipe card to allow this, could even charge a bit more but would be justified.

Overall good but beware of extra charge

Overall everything was very good. James at the front desk was great. Fabulous location. At checkin they throw you a sheet of paper listing items you get for an extra $9.95 such as Wi-Fi, lobby event, etc. This charge is mandatory whether or not you use these items. It is listed on fine print on the hotel web site but not on the site I used for booking.. By checkin time it's kind of late to change your hotel decision so keep this extra charge in mind when you compare rates.

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.
