I stayed at this hotel the evening of the Preakness Stakes. Immediate area is a little dicey but it is pretty close to the Inner Harbor and just a few blocks off the light rail which connected me to Pimlico and BWI Airport. Overall, good location. Price was very reasonable. The lobby is a little dirty and the desk clerk actually was out of the building on break when I got there, which was not too impressive. You'd think SOMEBODY should be there. Staff was friendly though. My room was fine. Bed comfortable, adequate lighting, large bathroom, small fridge, small window air conditioner and flat-screen TV. Wifi was OK. Everything worked fine, it was fairly clean, but there were some cosmetic problems - eyesores - that might bother some people. There was a business center and fitness room in the basement and both seemed perfectly functional.
As others have said, the bathroom doors are weird. They were keycard doors and thick, kind of like on a safe. The sink was strange and had a mismatched faucet that was too long. Again, it's an older building and there's a was a thud every time you turned on the water. It was hot though. Towels were fine. No second toilet paper roll. I would stay again, especially for the price but I was overly impressed.More
