Great family stay

Our room was perfectly located. We were able to view and enjoy the star spangled banner firework display from the comfort of our room. We were able to see the tall ships as the entered the harbor during the weekend celebration. The staff was superb in sharing info regarding the weekend events and showing us around. A weekend we will long remember!

Weekend in Inner Harbor

Staff were very good, though rooms are a bit worn. Peeling wallpaper, mediocre bathroom s with no vent and weak water pressure. Beds were very comfortable though. Great location, right across from Inner Harbor. For young kids, they offered tiny (cute) rubber ducks, which was a nice touch. Buffet breakfast was very good, especially the made-to-order waffles and eggs. Wish the rooms had been updated, but good experience overall (3* rooms with 4* service and 5* location).

Great Stay.

We had a great experience. Extremely clean. All help was very attentive, professional and very respectful. We were given 2 free complimentary breakfast tickets which was a nice surprise. Breakfast was excellent. Would definitely go back and will highly recommend.

Great weekend trip

Our family decided to turn a weekend lacrosse tournament into a two night mini-vacation and stay at Baltimore's Inner Harbor. The Renaissance location can't be beat ant the hotel itself was exactly what we needed. They even let us take advantage of a late-checkout so we could use the room before having to head home. Only complaint is there's only one elevator serving a very large hotel so if you're lugging a lot of gear ask to be closer to the elevator (not my usual request for sure!).

Has all the pieces...

...to a great outing either business or pleasure. Great location to most of the key areas at the Inner Harbor, staff was great and lobby bar cozy (sports oriented plus a more quiet area).

Location Right in Port Area but VERY NOISY

WE DID NOT GET ANY REST IN THE EVENING OR THRU THE NIGHT FOR ALL THE SIRENS. We would never stay at that location unless it were a inside room away from the streets. Which would be difficult considering the Hotel it is in the centered by four main city streets. A center room would be open to the city mall inside the hotel which may not be any better. There seems to be a lot of trouble inside the mall with teens hanging out. We did see several arrest made in our four day stay.

Other than location, not much going for it.

Noisy at night. Lots of door banging and noise in the hallways. Security is really lax. The door to the next door shopping gallery was open all day with no security oversight of those entering. The hotel restaurant food was terrible ! Bread was stale; soup was warm; totally bad experience.
