Exterior was deceiving until we entered our room. This hotel is absolutely stunning!!! I highly recommend for family trips or couples getaway.

Staff were were very nice and understanding Definitely will stay there again

Very nice hotel parking is limited but hotel it self is great

Breakfast was good...was close to the inner harbor

I was very displeased with the overall condition of the property in particular, the cleanliness of the room and the hallways.

The staff is amazing, polite, friendly, helpful !Only reason i would go back. Easy check in. Clean. The location is very central easy to go anywhere by Uber, but no restaurant close by that you can walk to, surroundings a bit shabby so it depends on what you want, The lobby is beautiful.The furniture in the rooms is dated and chipped, not what you would expect for the price

It was a pretty decent hotel. Breakfast included. Area around not the best but during the day we didn't have any problem walking back from the convention center to the hotel. Friendly hosts. Clean and comfortable beds.

That it was once a bank.

The hotel is taking in homeless people but they don’t let you know this so your experience walking inside is quite scary. Also, the neighborhood where the hotel is located is very poor and run down. The hotel should have a disclaimer about this too. Management has a “head in the sand” attitude about all of this.

Ok. Good experience. Parking was extra. Overall was good

This Holiday Inn Express showcases the best of Old Baltimore. It’s in a restored old bank building and has nice historic touches everywhere. The room was clean and had a fridge, microwave, Keurig-style coffee pot, and TV (as well as beds and a nice bathroom). The staff were friendly and helpful. The elevators worked and there was even a gym. Vending machines and ice were present on most floors. The free breakfast was very good. Parking was in a lot right behind the hotel, and the area around the hotel was well-lit at night. There is also a 7-11 right next to the hotel, which was convenient. The harbor side district is about a fifteen minute walk (all well-lit) or five-minute drive/Uber away. Seriously, there’s no need to stay at some high-priced hotel where they don’t include breakfast, don’t have vending and ice machines, and don’t have fridges and microwaves in the rooms when you can stay here. This hotel is historic and charming and has literally everything you’d need.

All good not much parking. Friendly staff. Our friends and I couldn't be on the same floor though. We checked in at 4pm and they said we couldn't be on the same floor.

Rough area of Baltimore. Felt a little threatened.

Can't really do anything about the neighborhood. Would definitely not be walking around at night.

With the exception of one, everyone at the desk and the shuttle drivers were very nice and helpful! I was there 5 days and my room was cleaned everyday with new towels provided without asking. There isn't much immediately around the hotel EXCEPT Ida B's Table, a delicious soul food restaurant with great staff, food and experience but I was able to take the shuttle to the convention center and the inner harbor, the two main places I needed to go. They could add more machines in the "fitness room". Overall, I had a great experience on this property
