Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by wam777mc Under Construction
The employees were great! However, the hotel was under construction. I used my hard earned priority club points to experience a nice romantic getaway. I had no idea the hotel was undergoing construction.
In our bathroom, the shower had several broken tiles.
Due to construction, I think they should have discounted my points.

Perfect location, close to harbor and stadium. Suggest you ask for a room on high floor, and stadium side of building-away from fire station. Fire truck sirens blaring every 20 minutes all night.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Andy3k Average, barely-comfortable stay with friendly staff
Good things: The staff were all very nice, friendly, and helpful. I had some specific requests for the location of my room and they made it happen as requested. Questions about nearby restaurants, grocery store, etc. were answered knowledgeably. Kudos to the staff. The room was clean, the Internet was fast and free, and it is located smack in the middle of downtown by the harbor. Also, the pool and exercise room looked serviceable but I did not have time to use them.
Bad things: All of the hallways and elevators were barely air-conditioned, at least in the second tower, so they were stiflingly warm and I sweated a little every time I went to or from my room. The only healthy items on the free breakfast buffet was the fruit and semi-healthy cereal - average for hotels, but this is the 21st century and health is high priority for many. The AC was difficult to adjust and I never got the exact temp I wanted (it would either do 71 or 75 and I am most comfortable at 73). The AC machine rattled until I used a towel to prevent it. The shower head is made for water conservation and does not provide a pleasing amount of broadly-sprayed, semi-forceful water.
Conclusion: It will do the job if you are on business, like I was, but wouldn't call it an enjoyable or relaxing stay. If you are on vacation and want to be able to relax in the hotel, it might be worth the money to pay for higher quality accommodations unless the bad things I mentioned above are forgivable to you.

I was aware of the renovations prior to booking the hotel and that was the least of our problems. First let me mention that it is directly across the street from a very active Fire Station. Even though we stayed in the West Building and did not face the Fire Station you can hear their sirens loud and clear. Their were 2 adults and 1 child and two of us stood shoulder to shoulder in the tiny bathroom while brushing our teeth. I wanted a hotel with a pool, however this pool had a film of grease and whatever else from the guests sitting on top of the water. We were awakened our first night by our neighbors tv at 2:30 am only to be followed by fire truck sirens. The small amount of time we were actually in our room I wore white socks and by the end of the second day the bottoms of my white socks were jet black. Yes the location is close to both stadiums and the inner harbor however it is a little too urban for me. I would highly recommend spending a little more money by staying anywhere by the National Aquarium and the Legg Mason building.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ASPEN13 Excellent Experience at Baltimore Inner Harbor
Comfortable room, complementary coffee could use some upgrading, but they are still a great value. Rooms were clean, comfortable bed, room was great. The dinning room is in the lobby, but you have easy access to all the complements of Inner Harbor. Great place to relax while in Baltimore.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Caryn Good location and friendly helpful staff
Even though the hotel was under renovation it was easy to park. The front desk called ahead to our next destination for early check-in. We were also upgraded to a king-bed. We enjoyed our stay. The bathroom needed to be about 2 feet larger.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Yankee71 Very Happy
Found the hotel to be clean, staff very helpful and friendly and the location perfect for attending Baltimore Orioles games. We went to see the game on a Sunday night. Had a few beers. Easy walk back to the hotel. Also about a 5 minute walk to the Inner Harbor. Only reason I gave a 4 star on the able to relax is the fire station is right across the street. Obviously they are on the siren to come out of the station. I am a firefighter so I loved it but some might find in the wee hours to be bothersome. Helped me sleep better. Don't let that discourage your reason for staying. Great hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Janet327 comfortable bed and great location
the bed was amazing. most comfortable ever in a hotel room. the location for what we had planned was excellent. the parking garage could use better labeling for its entrance. we passed it and were unable to get back easily due to one way streets and the baseball game traffic because it was a game day and the stadium is very close. one of our 2 problems was the outlets available to plug in our devices didnt work and our media did not charge while we were out. we went down to the front desk and no one was there to help us. when we called the front desk later they informed us there was no one to help with any issues because it was late. our drive home was aggravating trying to charge phones and devices to make the trip more pleasant. the other was we asked the staff about pool access and they said we could use our room cards to get in. they neglected to tell us the pool had only certain hours so we were unable to use it when we went down to it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ballfan Close to Ball Park/inner Harbour
All in all we enjoyed our short stay at the hotel. The staff was friendly and wanted to see to our needs, especially the bellman.(Eddie?).
We came into town just to see a couple of ball games. The hotel is only two blocks from the park, really nice! It is just a short walk to the inner harbor as well. For the price, I expected more in regard to amenities, perhaps this is because I am older and from the South. Maybe I am not in tune with their pricing. But, it is only 2 blocks from the ball park. Compromise.
Find a diner or other place for Breakfast. A smiling waiter with poor English does not make an overpriced buffet style breakfast worthwhile. We ate our other meals away from the hotel.
I did use the business center to log on to a computer and print my Southwest Air boarding pass. This put my mind at ease.
I would stay here again, reserve early, plan ahead.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gentle505 Great Location for an Orioles or Ravens game
We chose the HI for its location close to Camden Yards. It is only a short few minute walk for me as I am handicapped. With the Yankees in town we expected an increase in price and we got one. Normal rate is fair for an inner city hotel and they added $100 bucks. And here's the BUT....The two games we saw were both night games and when we returned to the hotel the bar and kitchen were closed. So, for the extra $$$ we didn't get any extra service or value. The blonde in the bar couldn't wait to get out of the place. Would have been nice to relax in the A/C and enjoy a cocktail or two...Oh yes the front entrance is closed for renovation. Added some extra walking for me and a danger walking into a busy parking lot. All considered it was a good stay when we return next year we will check around for prices and services

We know that building updates are necessary. If that is the case and members have a reservation I believe they should be informed prior to arriving, with instructions on what to do upon arrival.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SteveFromMapleHtsOH Good hotel
My wife and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Inner Harbor for 5 nights in June of 2013 to see the Cleveland Indians play the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards.
The hotel is located downtown and is within walking distance of Camden Yards, and restaurant/bars such as Camden Pub, Sliders, and Pickles. Easy drive to Ft. McHenry.
Even though the hotel is having a major remodeling in progress, the disruption was minimal.
The price of the hotel was the least expensive of several others in the immediate area.
The pool is large, clean, and has a lifeguard.
The room appeared to be remodeled.
Beds were comfortable.
Complementary water, cookies, and maps (on occasion) at the side entrance.
The not so good:
No complementary breakfast or coffee. (There is, however, a coffee maker in the room)
$4 muffins for sale in the lobby store…..fortunately there is a Dunkin Donuts nearby.
The air conditioner (wall unit controlled from a thermostat in the room) was loud.
Six pillows??? I only have one head. The hotel management should cut costs and pass on the savings to me.
An alarm clock that would confuse a jet pilot.
$25 parking per day.
There is no smoking section for smokers, probably since the hotel is totally non-smoking. I personally do not smoke but the smokers congregate at the entrance-ways and throw their butts on the ground since there are no receptacles.
If you want a USA Today paper, make sure you go to the lobby and get one before the daily conventions start. Would it be too much trouble for the management to put a paper by the door of paying guests?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ashleyyyy Comfort and value right near the harbor
The Hotel is literally right around the corner from the Inner Harbor. In such a prime location, this hotel has it all. Definitely one of the absolute nicest and cleanest Holiday Inn's I've ever stayed in. The staff was warm and welcoming and made everything as easy as possible. The indoor snack market had a great variety of goodies, and even the indoor pool was very well maintained. The rooms were spacious and CLEAN. My only complaint at all was that during the time I stayed there were many people outside of the hotel who kept coming up to either me or my boyfriend asking for money which I found to be strange because the time I was there before that had never happened, so it may have just been a one time thing. Either way that is not the hotel's fault they can't help what happens outside of their hotel. But, it is however just a comment of concern. Other than that it was an overall great stay and I will definitely be finding my way back soon!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wyatt86 Staff Wonderful!
The staff that met you at the entrance giving out fruit, water, chips, popcorn, etc where excellent. Next contact was front desk associates where kind, helpful, & courteous. The bell man which kept our luggage for us until rooms where available for us to check in was excellent, amazing, & fabulous. A true gentlemen! Check in delayed-advised guarentee check-in by 4:00 PM & it was much later. The room was large, setup of vanity was very nice, shower head large with great water pressure, beds not much. Bed mattresses needed to be replaced, very wavy, lumpy, & squeaked. Overall nice hotel Inner Harbor Baltimore. Thanks for all of your accomadations.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by gophillies smoke smell and rude waitress but location is GREAT
We just stayed at your hotel for the Red Sox-Orioles game this past weekend. The location of your hotel is OUTSTANDING for the baseball stadium and very close to the harbor. However, we had to check out of our room it smelled so badly of cigarette smoke, and the refrigerator leaked all over the carpet in the room and the floor was soaked. We moved to the room next door...which was fine. Went to breakfast the next morning with friends and had very poor service and a very cocky waitress. I had to bite my tongue from arguing with her and her attitude. So all in all, location is great, the rest is just ok....if you like moving your room and dealing with cocky attitudes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MKGrand the best place we've stayed on our many visits to Baltimore!!!,
This is the first holiday inn I have been to in years. We were told there may be some noise due to construction because they are renovating the hotel, We never heard a thing! The cleaning staff went out of their way to make certain we were comfortable and had everything we needed.
The food was the best! And I enjoyed the atmosphere at the bar and the friendly bartender!,
The front desk people were wonderful!!! We have been to Baltimore twice since march....because our son is going to be attending school in Maryland in the fall....when we return. I would ONLY stay at is hotel!!!
AND- if you are a baseball fan.....the hotel is literally right next door to the ballpark!! We enjoyed two games while we were in town!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dwpp HORRIBLE
Last year we stayed and our room was ransacked because housekeeping left our door ajar. No compensation given, nor where they really appologetic. We had a comp room to use from rewards program and dediced to make a five night getaway and decided to give them another chance. Our agent and myself (several times) reminded them of our past experience and were assured that we would be upgraded and there would be NO PROBLEMS..Lets say that the upgrade never happened, we were put in a room in the other tower forced to enhale cigarette smoke from the guests and employees smoking in the entrance and under the portocal. The smoke acually reached the seventh floor!!! The room was dirty and dusty, out dated, and skinky...No one at the front desk seemed to care--EVEN at checkout--NEVER asked ho our stay was---WE WILL NEVER STAY AT A HOLIDAY INN AGAIN AND SERIOUSLY RECOMMEND YOU LOOK ELSEWHERE. PS the pictures do not represent the rooms at all...It was certainly a poorly run hotel..

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by garigo94 Not like the pictures
I stayed at the Holiday Inn Inner Harbor in conjunction with a conference. The hotel lobby area and parts of the building were under construction making accessing the lobby very difficult. In our first room there was a piece of metal sticking out of the bed which I didn't see so scratched/cut my leg. The staff were very apologetic and offered "first aid" and changed my room. In the second room the air conditioner had a high pitched whine. The free wifi offered was so weak that I was unable to connect to the internet. I stayed in that room with the intention of moving in the morning. The next morning, however,after talking with others at the conference I decided that dealing with the air conditioner was a better choice -- one friend had a toilet that wouldn't flush and another had found hair (not hers) and other "stuff" in her bed and what she thought looked like blood stains on the curtains. Throughout my stay the wifi was unreliable, which was frustrating.
