Hotel Brexton2.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
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!
My wife and I have stayed at the Hotel Brexton on several occasions and can't speak highly enough about it. The history of the building is amazing. If you don't know if, research it and understand where you are staying. Close to the inner harbor and can easily walk or Uber. All the people that we had interaction with were fantastic and could not have been more helpful. Instead of staying at the Marriott or Holiday go off the beaten path and stay at the Brexton!
If you would like to get the feel of old Baltimore, then stay at this comfortable, updated hotel built originally as a private home. It is just a block or two from Baltimore's street of interesting restaurants, and cafes. The Staff is cordial.
A very comfortable room in a beautiful hotel with a very friendly staff that made you feel welcome. Continental breakfast was included, as was an outdoor patio covered with potted plants that was enjoyed both late night and in the mid-morning. A unique circular staircase was one of the highlights.
This hotel is in an historic building, recently refurbished and is a nice change from the large chain hotels. The staff was friendly and helpful and the room large, comfortable and clean. It is in a quiet area, but close to cultural attractions and not far from public transport. And, the price is right!
