The location was convenient to Johns Hopkins Hospital. The free shuttle service to & from the hospital was greatly appreciated. The hotel common areas were always well kept. The room was clean. Complimentary breakfast offered many drink & food options. The food area was clean & thanks to Nacim the food tasted great.

Our room was beautiful! Everything was spotless! The employees were all very nice and very helpful when we had questions. The breakfast was very good and was constantly replenished. We had never been to Baltimore but the hotel was very easy to get to and the shuttle made traveling to John's Hopkins and inner harbor sites easy for us!

This is a very nice, clean hotel just a few blocks away from Johns Hopkins (may be the closest to the hospital).
