“charming!”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

Honestly, I was concerned about staying in a historic property that it would be old & crummy. What a pleasant surprise! It was so charming and comfortable. The first impression was correct - the fresh flowers in the lobby denoted that someone cares! They made us feel like honored guests. Our king room was large & spacious with a connecting room for our daughter (also very large). It was clean, the staff went above & beyond, & the meeting room had 3 walls of solid windows so was extremely pleasant. It's in a terrific location with lots of fun things to do. I would stay there anytime I'm in the Baltimore area.

Room Tip: We had Rooms 416 & 418 at the end of the hall - loved it!

My wife and I are from Philadelphia. Just a little over 2 hour drive to this magnificent place called Fell's Point in Baltimore, Maryland. It is across from the Inner Harbor. We stayed at this unbelievable place called the Admiral Fell Inn. This was our first time there, which was last Spring. We stayed for a few days and it is one of the most beautiful getaways for a few days that one can imagine. It all started with the staff at the Inn. We were met by two gentleman at the front desk named Hakeem and Mike. First off, we were there at 10:00am, and check-in was not till 3:00pm. However, they took our bags, secured them in a locked room, and asked for my cell phone number. I was told they would call me as soon as my room was ready. It was ready long before we checed-in!! In the meantime, these two gentleman took the time to point out every favorite stop in this quaint little town. Their first recommendation was the restaurant at the hotel, which we tried, and found to be excellen!! As far as other places, they told us where they had gotten feedback from other guests as far as taverns, eateries, sights to see, etc.... However, we could choose to walk through one of the most picturesque town that I have ever been through. There were cobble stone streets, a Square in the center of town, the harbor just steps from the hotel, and too many other things to mention,,but if we chose to go out to see the sights and have dinner out, they made sure they didn't steer us wrong. These two gentleman were amazing!! So much so, that I kept in touch with them throughout the year. You won't find a friendlier staff.

Just two weeks ago, my wife and I, along with our son and his fiance', my daughter with her boyfriend, and another daughter with her husband, visited Fell's point again. Needless to say, all eight of us stayed at the Admiral Fell Inn again, and ironically were met by the same two gentleman behind the desk, Mike and Hakeem. No need to say, they bent over backwards again, but this time for my entire family.

If you are looking for a quaint little town to vacation in and are looking for the perfect hotel, look no further than the Admiral Fell Inn. It is in the heart of town and convenient to everything. It is very clean and you get a feeling of that old World charm. By the way, there is a ghost tour, as it is rumored that the hotel is haunted!! I'm not sure if the ghost tours are held on both Friday and Saturday nights, but there is a tour that ends in the lounge of the hotel where a cheese tray and coctails await you. You would have to check to see what the schedule is.

I'm already looking to schedule another weekend in May. This will be my third time there is one year!! Trust me, you won't regret it!!

Mike and Hakeem, thank you for all that you've done for my family!!

We have stayed at the Admiral Fell Inn on numerous occasions. Hakeem works at the front desk and is by far one of the most personable individuals of the hotel staff. All of the staff seem gracious and friendly. However, from the first time we stayed at the hotel, he went out of his way to make us feel welcome. His positive attitude and willingness to accommodate every little particular request was wonderful. Hakeem always remembered minor details and was extremely helpful in making our stay enjoyable! Overall, the staff makes staying at the Admiral Fell Inn a great and memorable experience!

I attended a conference at the Admiral Fell Inn recently and definitely plan to return after the amazing experience I had! The rooms were beautifully appointed, spacious and comfortable. The staff was knowledgeable, welcoming and very accommodating. I was most impressed by the “text anything and everything” feature that this hotel offers. The food was outstanding! The hotel is historic, unique and located in a fabulous spot within steps to many quaint shops, delicious restaurants and the beautiful harbor. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel for business or pleasure.

I was at the Admiral Fell Inn for a company meeting. My stay was awesome. This is a quaint historic hotel where every room is unique. I was in the John Moale room. At check in I rec'd a little history about John Moale and his connection with the Inner Harbor area. It is the small touches like this that set this location apart. The food was excellent and small underground pub quaint just like the entire area. The staff was available for all of our needs; Cleanliness of the rooms, historic furnishings, comfortable bedding, water and coffee in our room. Restaurants and taverns are just outside your door in the Fells Point area. I will definitely be back.

My wife made arrangements to attend a conference at Johns Hopkins. I came along as the chauffeur and for a break from work. We spent three nights ironically in the Johns Hopkins room which actually had a slight view of the water. The room was lovely. large with king sized bed. The breakfast each morning was quite nice as there were numerous choices even though it was considered a continental breakfast. We are used to doing an enormous amount of bed and breakfasting so we rarely want a continental breakfast but it was very satisfying and enjoyable.
The area around the Inn was very quaint and lots of nice shops, restaurants, etc.
They also have a free shuttle that went to Johns Hopkins and another hotel they own in the Harbor area. I used it twice and it helped avoid needing taxi cabs.
Every one at the Inn was incredibly responsive to any and all requests. As we were leaving they were giuving their staff (and then offered us) this amazing gelati from a nearby store that we had visited the prior two evenings after dinner (read separate review of "Pitango".
We will definitely return to the Admiral Fell Inn when we have a reason to visit Baltimore again!!
