Inn at The Black Olive

Reviewed 1 September 2011

We are three women with an adventureous spirit who braved Hurricanine Irene to stay at the Inn at the Black Olive. We were in the VIP suite( where Woody Harrellson stays),plenty of room, great views of the City and Storm! The Chef prepared dinner for just the guests in the Inn and it was fabulous. Dimitri can really make and Organic drink, and Ryan is a sweetheart. Breakfast was delicious - I think we tried all the choices! I especially liked the greek yougurt and the hand squeezed orange juice. They took very good care of us and we learned much about the green building and organic foods. Sure the service was slow - but it's dinner . . . why rush ! Dimitri went out on the deck of the 5th floor to gather fresh herbs for our drinks and dinner. The baby yellow and red tomatos in the Bloody Mary were to die for - we asked for more and got them!

Sparkling Clean, Dining Room Table, Full size stainless steel frig, washer dryer combo (with Eco-detergent) automatic lights, Google TV, WI-FI, and fab towels, robes and slippers. Huge shower and jacuzzi tub - what more could you ask for - oh - the best most comfortable bed!

The staff called cabs for us, and even came out to help with the packages.

Less than a mile walk to Little Italy - and a beautiful promenade along the harbour that begins right across the street from the hotel. We'll go again for sure.

Room Tip: Talk to Ryan or Dimitri - see what's available for a short notice stay.

The Inn at The Black Olive has got to be one of the most eco-elegant hotels in America. The attention to detail in building the inn to a high sustainable standard is unmatched and at the same time the comfort and amenities are uncompromisingly high. The neighborhood was quiet but at the same time within walking distance of Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Parking was easy and the service was amazing. It will be a regular stop when I am in Baltimore.

$500/night was joke. The are not able to run a hotel. No one at front desk. No one at restaurant. Room service for breakfast took over an hour for two eggs on a plate and nothing else. The room was decorated like a college dorm room. This place could have had huge potential given the building, location and reputation of the Black Olive restaurant. Very disappointing!

- We have outfitted the rooms with artwork from local artists, Persian carpets, and live plants to help with the décor. The artwork is labeled accordingly by artist, name, and price, and in turn 15% of sales goes towards a scholarship The Black Olive has set up with MICA.

- We have added additional personnel from overnight concierge to an additional concierge during peak hours to ensure all guests get proper attention

- In regards to breakfast, a talented breakfast chef is now part of our team who artfully garnishes all dishes ; room service timing has been perfected by adding breakfast hangtag menus with time slots for accurate delivery
