Found this hotel via a gamble on Hotwire. Even though Hotwire said it was a 3 star, most other sites had it listed no higher than 2.5. Regardless, there was some hesitation about staying here, but it turned out to be a great visit. My expectations were exceeded. The staff was very friendly. The hotel was updated and the room was very clean. We stayed on the fifth floor, at our request which was graciously granted, and it was very quiet. There was a free shuttle that took you just about anywhere you wanted to go in the Inner Harbor/Fells Point area. This was invaluable, as it was convenient and saved us a lot on cab fares. The one negative to the hotel is that it is located in a shady neighborhood, and is probably the only reason why I gave it a 4 instead of 5. Aside from that, I can't find any faults here.
