Recent guest reviews

Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay at Hotel Brexton. Our room was good size for an older hotel and very quiet for the city. The staff was friendly and helpful. We were able to park out front for free and that was helpful. We were only walking minutes to several of our favorite restaurants, Owl Bar, City Cafe and Baby’s On Fire coffee shop. We did enjoy the continental breakfast at the hotel. We would stay here again as we love the historic significance of Hotel Brexton.

This was my second visit to Hotel Brexton. It is indeed different from the usual fare but I love it that way. I stayed 3 nights over the weekend and it was just as nice as my first visit. It is a Historic Hotel and so the exterior has that historic red brick look with its distinctive towers. The interior is smart and clean with hardwood floors and décor that is comfortable yet doesn't take away from the interesting room outlines. The complimentary breakfast can be as quick or as long as one wishes, from cereal and bagels to oatmeal, fruit, and juice. Make a flavored coffee or have a nice hot cup of tea. Ask the staff for recommendations on eating, shopping, or transportation. I took the light rail from BWI to the Cultural Center stop and walked 5-7 minutes to the hotel. Symphony Hall, Walters Art Museum, Peabody Library are nearby as well as several universities: University of Baltimore, MICA Maryland Institute College of Art, John Hopkins University, University of Maryland, and more. Hotel Brexton is in the Mt. Vernon district and there's a lot to discover. I'm so glad I stayed at Hotel Brexton, a member of the Historic Hotels of America. I look forward to my next stay here.

Hotel Brexton is a beautiful, quiet historical building with roomy, spotless rooms of varying shapes and sizes, located near many historical and modern attractions of Baltimore. We stayed there in January and we stayed there in September, and we would happily stay there again. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful: Many thanks to Anthony, Leon, Terrell, and others whose names slip my mind!

My wife and I stayed there for a long weekend. Remote for tv didn't work for entire visit even after we informed front desk. In addition, the toilet continues to run water for a long time after flushing. Room had only 1 set of towels at checkin. Hotel was very noisy on Saturday night until well after 2am. Will not stay there again in future.

It looks like a lot of people had good experiences here. Unfortunately, this was not the case for my elderly parents. I booked through a third party site and I was told by the hotel that it was my fault for doing that and they had not reservation for me (despite my having a confirmation email). However, they have no problem counting on and encouraging the use of these sites to get business and good reviews, yet they cannot honor the reservation. My elderly parents are in town for a medical procedure and upon finding out that they did not have a hotel room for the second night of their stay, Hotel Brexton said nothing, did nothing and kept up the blame game. Unacceptable. A good hotel would have at least tried to find an alternative. You can't both advertise on third-party sites and then throw up your hands and declare that because a customer used those sites it is their fault. There really is not enough space here to express how angry I am for what my parents are going through a day before treatment. I will give the hotel a thank you for letting my parents check in early.

My husband was away for 10 days here at Hotel Brexton. I had the pleasure of visiting him for 2 days and this place was the perfect piece of heaven. We are a big family with 6 children, so it was such a treat to see my husband have his own space all spotless, comfy, and fun. The customer service here is impeccable. The decor is lovely. The neighborhood is quite (and actually quite magical at night). The cleaning service is on point and consistent. Parking is without stress, right in front of the building. The closet space is pretty awesome. The bathroom was spacious. The view (from the second floor) was beautiful. The soaps were nice...some kind of honey wash. Maybe a local flavor? Supportive surrounding community (cleaners, restaurants, bars, etc.) There's even a washer and dryer if you need to do laundry. Overall a great choice.

I travel a lot with my job and in all fairness a Holiday Inn type hotel looks the same whether I'm in Baltimore or Kazakhstan (Google it!), so I like to go for boutique hotels as it is usually the better choice. The Brexton is in Mt. Vernon and about a mile from the harbour. I was met with a wonderful welcome and shown to what can only be described as a fabulous room. Quirky and perfect. The breakfast is great and although there is no restaurant there are some great local places, The Tavern on the Hill (great place for beer and food) is less than 5 minutes walk away. If I am ever in Baltimore again, I would stay here at the drop of a hat. Thank you.

We stayed for two nights. It was fun because the hotel has a lot of history and is very old. We are retired and were very comfortable there. The employees were SO nice and helpful, more so than they needed to be. We felt safe, there were places to eat nearby. We did snag a parking place out front so that was easy. There is a garage in short walking distance. The elevator is small, and the rooms are irregularly shaped because the building is irregularly shaped but that is what makes it fun. Our room was comfortable, the bathroom large, and the breakfast good. The circular staircase is very special. We would stay again!

Lovely hotel, perfect location. Stayed during Artscape, ample street parking. Safe area, literally blocks from the action. Hotel is great, staff is friendly, rooms are nice, kitchen downstairs is always open. I will always stay here for Artscape. Did I mention the hotel is beautiful?

My fiancé and I stayed at Hotel Brexton for a short weekend in Baltimore and the hotel was fantastic! The historic decor and demeanor of the hotel made it such a unique experience. The hotel staff was friendly and the accommodations were comfortable and very clean. We would definitely stay here again!
