“Other reviewers created very false expectations”
Reviewed 3 August 2004

Based largely on the reviews found on this website, I picked the Gammercy as the place to take my girlfriend following a romantic dinner at the Oregon Grille in order to propose to her. While the reservations were handled fine, the check-in was not. Only one employee was visible upon our arrival after 10:00 PM, and he was helping another guest and answering the constantly-ringing phone. We were left to stand around like fools!

The room was not cleaned properly, which certainly failed to create the mood I desired. The floors were dirty and unvacuumed, and dustballs appeared throughout the room. There's no chance that the square footage of the room matched what I was quoted.

At the time of departure, the employee at the front was rude and short with us, and made us feel like we did not belong. We were made to feel like an inconvenience to the inn throughout our stay! We could have just as easily driven downtown, and the tradeoff for losing a bit of ambience would have surely been much better service.

I am glad to say I am now engaged, but it's no thanks to the inhospitable people at the Grammercy!

We spent one night in Baltimore on our way to Gettysburg then going to D.C. We did not want to spend a lot of money...we were arriving late and getting up early! Gramercy Mansion met all our needs! We were not able to get 1 room for the three of us so we got the two smallest room. At 75.00 a room we paid less than what one room would have cost if we had stayed at a hotel in the Inner Harbor. After having dinner and driving around the Inner Harbor...we drove to Gramercy Mansion, arriving at 11:00 p.m. I called ahead of time to let management kniow we would be arriving late. Our keys were waiting for us and we let ourselves in. My husband and son slept in one room and I slept in the other. The bed was very comfortable and it was quiet! There are lots of complimentary goodies in the room... We did not have a problem sharing the bathroom down the hall. Near the dining room fireplace, we had a lovely breakfast (included in the price) the next morning. It started to rain as we were leaving...will walk around the gardens next time we visit!

My husband and I got married at the Gramercy. Everything here was wonderful: the staff, the grounds, the mansion itself, the AMAZING room. We stayed in the Camelot room (one of their 2 new rooms) and it was wonderful. The bathroom is HUGE, with a BIG jacuzzi tub with lights (plenty big enough for 2...and we are not small people!)

Unfortunately, our flight left early the next morning, so we could not partake in the breakfast, but I'm sure it's wonderful. Everything else was!

This is a wonderful place to spend a romantic weekend or even just a weekend. We look forward to going again for our anniversary.

My husband and I spent Christmas 2003 at the Gramercy Mansion just outside of Baltimore. It is truly a mansion - a turn of the century (1900's) home built by the owner of the Penn. Railroad. The decorations were lovely for Christmas. The breakfasts were excellent with a nice selection. But the best of all was our room: we stayed in the Tudor Suite with a massive king-sized canopy bed draped in burgandy and gold satin, an armoire, chest, desk, table and chairs, two balconies and a patio, and a huge marble bath with a double whirlpool tub and a separate shower. We saw most of the other rooms. They were all lovely, but we still liked the Tudor Room the best. It is also on the main level, making it handicapped accessible. There is only one other room at that end of the Mansion, making it very quiet. The Mansion sits on a hill amid a large farm in the rolling Maryland hunt country, but only minutes from downtown Baltimore. We will definitely go back. My husband said this one would be hard to beat!
