Mt. Washington Conference Center
Ranked #47 of 67 Hotels in Baltimore
Reviewed 2 May 2011

The Mt Washington Conference Center has a beautiful location on a lush hill, and very close to Rt 83, but the attention to fundamentals was lacking. We stayed for 2 nights and when we checked in immediately noticed the toilet was running-- how could they miss that noise?! There was a coffee machine in the room with no coffee-- what's up with that?!! We pointed out these things the next morning to housekeeping and left for the day. When we came back- Toilet still running and no coffee!! To make matters worse, they didnt provide a change of towels, or give us fresh (plastic) cups. Very sloppy. Room was a bit cramped and loud clanging noises in the middle of the night (both nights). On the plus side you get privileges at a nice fitness room one building away.

I attended a conference at the Mt. Washington Conference center and stayed in the rooms. This is a great place for a M-F conference when you want to focus on the conference. Mt. Washington Village is a short walk down hill and the light rale is also. But there are no child oriented activities on site other than a pool table and ping pong. The staff was fabulous - super accomodating to me as well as my family. The rooms are small but clean and have a little deck. Housekeeping stopped me in the hall twice to ask if my room was acceptable. Everyone was super friendly!! I would com back for a conference or short get away!!

This hotel was incredible for the price. If you are looking for a Baltimore hotel that is great value then this one is the right choice. The hotel was a short drive from the center of Baltimore, steps away from the light rail if you don't feel like driving, and right near the highway. It's in a quiet area just outside of Baltimore city. The staff was extremely friendly, the rooms were great but nothing fancy. Continental breakfast in the morning was adequate. Location was great. Perfect hotel.

My two daughters have been attending Johns Hopkins over the last few years and I've stayed in several places around the Charles Village area including the Hopkins Inn, the Colonnade and a B&B near Peabody. This is by far the best deal I've found. The beds are VERY comfortable, the room very clean and we had a nice flat screen tv with many channels to choose from. A light continental breakfast is served from 7-11 am. No other place I have stayed has included free wifi, parking and breakfast for this price. Not only that, the room was quiet without any city noise and the surrounding grounds are lovely. The village of Mt. Washington, within walking distance, has charming shops and several small, interesting restaurants that serve good food. You will want a car if staying here since you'll be about a 10 minute drive from the Hopkins Homewood campus and a bit further from downtown Baltimore.

I feel very cheated, we saw the picture on the website, and it looks nothing like that. Lets be clear, this is NOT a hotel, it does not have any of the amenities of a hotel whatsoever unless you could a bed and a bathroom (which I think would also be a jail). This is nothing more than a 1970's style dorm room, there are placards that say "no alcoholic beverages", what if I wanted a glass of wine with dinner? This is ridiculous to treat this as you would a hotel, it is apples and oranges, and is IN NO WAY 3.5 stars!!!

We stayed at this hotel for one night in June. The hotel is with in walking distance to the light rail, which we took to the inner harbor. It was very convenient to get to the Inner Harbor, and even easier to get back to the hotel after attending a baseball game. We were able to see numerous attractions during the day. The hotel staff were very friendly. I will definitely stay here again when my baseball team is in town!

Stayed at the conference center for one night while traveling on business. I did not want to stay in downtown Baltimore as a single female traveling alone. I will stay here again. I was in room 312 and it was great. Good size, comfortable chair and comfortable bed. I also liked having a private balcony. The staff were very friendly. Parking was easy and enjoyed the quiet atmosphere.
