“Can't Beat the Location”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We've been to this hotel twice in the last month, and you can not beat the location, especially if you're visiting the Inner Harbor. You're right across the street from the action! Also, while a bit of a walk, if the weather is nice, you can easily walk to Little Italy and Fell's Point from the hotel. The rooms are very clean and modern -- exactly what you would expect from a Marriott.
We were disappointed with the club lounge. The first time we were there, the lounge ran out of food during breakfast, and it took a while before they had it replenished. We did tell the front desk, and they gave us extra points on our rewards card for the inconvenience. We were also a bit disappointed that the lounge was not open in the evening on the week-end for cocktails and hors doeuvres. The second time we were there, we did stop by the club lounge at 5pm. We were surprised there was a charge for wine and beer. And the hors doeuvres were sparse. Oh well, not a deal breaker, as far as we were concerned.
Next time we go to Baltimore, we will go back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the Harbor.

We recently spent 2 nights at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace. We went to sporting events will visiting Baltimore. The hotel is in a perfect location to walk over to Camden Yards. Beautiful view of the harbor from our room, and close to everything! If I was planning a weekend in Baltimore where I would be spending more time in the hotel, I would choose to stay at The Four Seasons or The Marriott. Both of these hotels are beautiful!!! I loved their location better as they are both waterfront, but in a quieter location. It would have been a further walk from Camden Yards and more expensive rooms. We didn't feel we needed to spend the extra money when we knew we wouldn't get to our room until at least 11pm and we had to get on the road by 7am the following morning.

The Renaissance was clean and a typical hotel room. Nothing special. Valet service was a bit slow in the evening, so call ahead. No problem in the morning with valet service.

Excellent location, had a fantastic view of the waterfront. Rooms on the waterfront side have great views, corner rooms are very spacious. It is very much a bed-factory but nicely done and good service. There is a laundry on level 7 that costs a dollar to wash clothes, dollar to dry. Ice machines on every floor too. Mall connected to hotel was good, and a well stocked gift shop downstairs.
The internet was horrifically expensive $15-17/day and was terrible quality. Dropped in and out, disconnected randomly, sometimes would be connected but data just stopped. Tried to do some university work but connection really wasn't reliable enough. Apparently it is an external provider so they weren't interested in feedback/complaints. A less than 1-minute international call cost about $17 - gotcha!
Otherwise quite an efficient and nice place.

I just spent two night there on business and the hotel met all my expectations ease of things to do since the inner harbor is across the st, places to eat and cleanliness of the hotel and my room. I would definitely stay at the hotel again.

Stayed here for one night after an Orioles game and couldn't have been more satisfied. The Renaissance met every expectation you would have while staying at a Marriott hotel, not to mention the location couldn't have been better. The inner harbor is right across the street and Camden Yards is just 4 short blocks away. If you're traveling with kids there is a pool in a glass encasement on one of the roofs. Not one the most aesthetically pleasing pools I've seen but it seems like families with kids really appreciated the amenity.

Can't beat the location of this hotel with view of inner harbor. Beds were comfy, but room was dated, bad paint job on window trim. Filthy hallways with bags of linen sitting in hall the entire time we stayed (4 p,m. to 8 a.m.) and no apparent vacuuming in halls. Club lounge breakfast OK but nothing special. Generally an overpriced hotel with nice lobby and dated rooms in a great location.

Room Tip: Harbor view is the only way to go - otherwise I would question why one would stay here.

Hello and thank you for sharing your experience on Trip Advisor. I am happy to hear you enjoyed the convenience of our location directly across from the Inner Harbor. My apologies for the crowded condition of the hallways as our housekeeping staff serviced other guestrooms. I have shared your comments regarding the need areas in your guestroom with my engineering staff. If you have a moment can you contact me directly at pam.saleh@marriott.com so I can determine the exact location of your guestroom? I want to make sure the necessary maintenance is performed . I look foward to hearing back from you.

Thank you

Stayed here for one night. Upgraded to suite due to being a platinum elite. Room was very nice. Hotel close to attractions. Lots of security in the hotel. Club lounge had basic items for breakfast. Fitness center had basic working machines. There is a mall attached to the hotel. Typical city noise from the room.
