Close to the Inner Harbour and all the action. Rooms small but adequate, clean and well appointed. Good bar and restaurant, including a cool rooftop dining area and volleyball court. Hint: street can be noisy, so ask for a quiet room if you want one.

Dkrause, The windows are original to the building which was built in 1911/11913, As we do renovations they are being replaced with more energy efficient window.

Room was very clean and nice new hardwood floors. Good location for walking to sites, museum and shops. Parking is a bit of a walk and the breakfast was good but not many healthy choices. Still would recommend this hotel.
