Lord Baltimore Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice, updated, clean. Shower/tub was a little small and dated but otherwise I have no complaints. Good location within walking distance to Inner Harbor.

Not one to complain about hotels. As long as the sheet look clean and they stock toilet paper in the bathroom, I really don’t mind what hotel I stay at. But considering the usual price of this hotel, the parking and traffic noise is enough to not make a stay here worth it. Police and emergency sirens went on all night. Valet parking is $31/night or else self parking is a block and a half away. It’s too bad because the rest of the experience was very nice and the atmosphere of the hotel is very quaint. I suggest keeping your money and find a Best Western that’s off the highway with their own parking lot.

The property was clean, quiet and safe. It is readily accessible by public transportation. Baltimore is an old city, and its streets are crowded during lots of the day, most especially at rush hour. The Lord Baltimore is close to the Mt Vernon district. The restaurant and the bar age quite nice.

Hotel's surprisingly far from the Inner Harbor amd most restaurants. Ubered. We showed up to check in and were told we'd be getting an upgrade because of a membership status we have with one of the travel sites...except that thrn the clerk said nevermind, there were no upgrade rooms available. She put us in a large room, but with no view (i.e., the next room was almost touching distance across a small air funnel) and no apology. Room was spacious, decor was manly, but the bathroom had only been partially renovated (old yellowing subway tile shower and fixtures that didn't match the rest of the room, which was blacks and grays), and the paint job from that upgrade was poorly done (very sloppy). Upon checkout, only got charged half of valet parking and no late checkout fee, which was clearly posted as being $50.

Hotel was a pleasant surprise. Only blocks away from harbor. Very clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooftop bar was amazing. We decided to stay an extra night.

We were in town for a baseball game and arrived earlier than our check in time. We asked the front desk if it was possible to check in and they were more than happy to get us taken care of. The room we got was perfect. We were able to see part of the stadium from our room. We will return.

We enjoyed our stay at the Lord Baltimore. Room was large, clean, newly renovated, but with a few oddities. The lighting, especially in the bathroom was dim. The bathroom is huge, but badly designed so that there is inadequate shelf space. Still, the hotel was clean, nice looking centrally located and the staff, though sometimes harried, were kind.

Valet was to expensive. Bar closed to early. Room not worth the price.

Valet staff were nice and accommodating. Front desk staff welcoming and helpful. Bar staff person friendly. But should've honored the menu price for the beer purchased. The check came and it was $2 more than on menu. She should've honored the price listed. Thought that was tacky and poor customer service. She just said the prices changed and didn't seem to care that I was unhappy. The cafe for breakfast left a lot to be desired. Fresh fruit was not that fresh and hot breakfast sandwiches were pre-made and sitting under warmer were not good at all. The room was very nice, beds very comfortable. Our refrigerator smelled horrible. It looked clean but the stench couldn't have been missed by the housekeeping staff.

Large room that was nicely decorated. Lovely lobby. Ate in all three restaurants and food and service was very good.

This is a nice historic hotel with updated amenities, comfortable rooms and friendly staff. The hotel is in a safe part of the city in the middle of downtown, close to Inner Harbor and about a mile walk from Little Italy and Fells Point. I have no complaints and would definitely stay there again.

Security in the hotel a good experience for women who travel alone and that help keep down illegal activities in rooms on their premises.

it was an upscale hotel at a very fair price. .

We only stayed one night in this beautiful hotel, but certainly could have stayed longer. The staff was warm and welcoming and helped us out with everything from directions to dining options and parking. Our room was spacious and clean. Very pleased with our stay.

If you're self-parking, expect to walk 2 blocks to the hotel. Room was nice . We requested a king bed but it seemed like a queen. Nice modern/gatsby feel. Hotel is very beautiful. Front desk receptionist that assisted us with check in was very short with her answers to our questions and we felt that was not very welcoming

Room was excellent and staff very nice. The only drawback to the room was no easy chairs. Seemed a bit empty though clean and neat. Good view.

This may be the highest rating I have ever given, I have traveled to over 35 different countries, and this was one of my best overall hotel experiences, special kudos to front desk staff, I had excellent service at 2pm, or at 3am for departure, I will stay here during my next trip.

Hotel was decent for one night, ice machine on the 15th floor was broken

Lovely historic (bu renovated) hotel near downtown baltimore. Staff very nice. Lobby beautiful. Room spacious enough, very clean. Bed was great-big pillows, not those small dumb square pillows some hotels use now. My only complaint was the shower-it had separate hot/cold faucet handles, and it took forever to get hot water then to find the right temp. It wasnt the inconvenience and time so much as how much water I felt like I wasted. Other than that small complaint, great hotel. There is a bakery and bar onsite that looked well utilized.

This hotel was in great centralized location. It is has a vintage feel, reminiscent of the 1920's which is when it was built. The rooms are spacious. There is a fridge that comes standard in the room and in the vending area microwaves are available. On the lower level there is a great restaurant and a very cute bakery. I loved it.
