“Great views and location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

Stayed here recently for work. My room at the Royal Sonesta had a fabulous view of the harbor. Greatly appreciated the service and cleanliness. The location can't be beat. So many points of interest in walking distance.

This is my second experience at the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court in Baltimore and both were for meetings. The rooms are very comfortable and surprising large for a city hotel. The location is great- easy and quick access to the harbor, Camden yards, major attractions. Although this was for business, I wouldn't hesitate returning with my family!

Dear Karen H. Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. The staff and I are glad to hear this was the 2nd time we have had the pleasure of hosting your as our guests. Our location and views of the harbor can't be beat. Most attractions are within walking distance and if not, the free Charm City Circulator can most surely get anyone to their destination. We hope to have opportunity to welcome you back a 3rd time as our guest.

I read some negative reviews just before my stay. Alll I can say is the employees always greeted you with a smile and went the extra mile. The hotel decor had character and charmm. The location across the street from the harbor could not be any better. I hesitate to give anyone 5 stars but I cannot think of what else they could have done to make it better.

Excellent location, Explorers Cafe food excellent, great option to eat close to room, Formula Espresso great to grab coffee and hit the Inner Harbor area. Great deal, tickets to aquarium and valet parking inclusive. Tony the bellman, an asset to the hotel.

We only stayed for one night but really enoyed it. The staff was very helpful and friendly and our room as though it could use a little updating was clean and we had a nice view. The hotel has a little bar area (also a bit outdated) but good enough for a late night drink... I would stay here again.

I have been going to this hotel at least annually for many years. Since Sonesta took it over from intercontinental, it is not the same. The class and quality has definitely diminished.It still is a nice place,but for the first time i may consider other baltimore hotels. Its the small things that make a difference-no newspaper choice for delivery to room, shampoo dispensers attached to shower wall rather than the high end bottles.Rooms just dont seem as clean, But still great location!

Dear aen1563, thank you sharing your concerns with us regarding your recent visit. I am sorry hear that we did not live up to your expectations as in the past. Please know we still use high-end amenities in our bathroom. We've only consolidated by installing the dispensers. Our guests tend to feel it is more hygienic. I hope you will reconsider and give us another chance in the future.

The price for a room at this hotel on Hotels.com was very high. When we walked by and checked availability and price it was clearly affordable. The hotel is outstanding. Don't understand the pricing strategy.
