Renovated Bank Building: Great Architecture

The Holiday Inn Express was a former bank building and as a result, has wonderful architectural details especially in the lobby with soaring ceilings and many embellishments. The room was modern, clean, with comfortable beds. Also, I could not hear any hallway noise of slamming doors or elevators. Highly recommend for the savvy traveler.

Short visit

Location: Close to Inner Harbor.
Very nice hotel with super staff. Willing to give extra towels and shampoo. Very good breakfast and a shuttle service to local attractions!

Hidden Treasure

Stayed one night while a family member was on business. This nice little hotel gives a homey feeling. Nice floor plan and lots of light. Quiet. A couple of items were not working, and as I was tired the night before, I waited to report the next morning. Hotel staff were extremely accommodating and friendly.

Great hotel with an excellent staff

Cons: No place to eat close by and the area is a little shaky after dark.
Location: We walked most places really enjoyed the inner harbor and fells point. The water taxi is great.
best hotel staff I have ever experienced, they should teach a class on customer service.

Environment

Pros: I liked the breakfast.
Cons: The rate per night to stay there should be much cheaper due to the location.
Location: Juvenile Justice Center Hospital for the Homeless
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone, because the staff was foreign and very difficult to understand. They were also very rude. In addition the location of the hotel is horrible for someone who is staying alone. It is across the street from the Baltimore City Juvenile Justice Center so there were a lot of suspect people hanging around outside. In addition to the the Hospital for homeless people was in walking distance. Because of this a lot of homeless people were hanging around the facility. They had tents set up and I was very uncomfortable. If I had known that this was going to the be the case, I would have stayed somewhere else. In addition, the hotel does not turn the air on in the hallways leading to the rooms, because of this it was extremely hot.

Very Adequate

Clean, quiet room. Area not great, shuttle to downtown provided until 10:30 pm. Free breakfast. Parking limited to 28 spaces. Would not want to miss out on that. $12 cost w/in and out. Staff helpful. Would stay again. Great shower.

Convenient location to Inner Harbor - yet not pricey.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: desk staff hard to find sometimes
I thought this hotel was a nice find. The room rate was reasonable and it is close to many of the wonderful things the City has to offer. They had a shuttle that ran down to inner Harbor although it is within walking distance. Would not reccomend walking past dawn however as there are sketchy area's surrounding the hotel. Room was very nice and clean and it was quiet.
