It was a awesome experience
There are no dressers. A little annoying. No where to put my stuff
good location, only a couple blocks from the inner harbor and the power plant live, room was comfortable, lobby was quaint, staff helpful
could have used a bell hop service. if they had one, must have been busy. only saw one cart for luggage. lucky it was only me and my adult son, light on bags. :)
Stayed in a huge king bed room. Lots of empty space that could have been filled with a couch and coffee table with the TV in front of it. But they chose to place the TV to the right side of the bed making it awkward to watch. With this tiny one person mini couch directly under the TV. ..What the point of that? The front desk staff need a little more training. And a button or something indicating that they work there. They're all in regards clothes. A guy looking to check in thought I worked there when I went down to see what was the hold up on the extra towels I called down for 2 hours prior.
I've found my go-to Baltimore hotel
I couldn't have asked for more from the Red Lion. Gorgeous rooms, wood floors (a HUGE plus for me because of my allergies), a shockingly short walk to the Charm City Circulator's Purple line, wonderful and warm staff who go beyond the call of duty, and all for a very low last minute price!! I am also very picky about hotel beds as I have a bad back but this bed was everything I wanted. Not to mention all of the communal amenities I simply did not have a chance to check out because my trip was short! There is, apparently, a 24 hour gym and the lobby seems to be a wonderful place to relax, socialize, and create a sense of a hotel community. The Red Lion seems equiped to foster vacation friendships one would expect of an extended resort stay on an island somewhere, despite the fact that it is located in the heart of Baltimore. If anyone I know ever needs a hotel in Baltimore, I will insist they stay at the Red Lion.
Honestly, my only qualm was that I only booked a room for one night. Had I known how wonderful my accommodations would be, I may have extended my trip! Oh, and a full body mirror would be nice, but its absence was in no way a deal breaker.
Great price for the location and on a weekend too!!
Room was facing street which was very noisy for 6am- 9am on a Saturday, trash pickup, street cleaning and another loud construction truck nearby but otherwise no complaints on behalf of the hotel staff or facilities!
Love it - Charm City
Loved the decor and atmosphere!
All staff were extremely friendly. Valet (Jody) went above and beyond to assist and always had a smile on his face. Decor is appealing and modern, the rooms were spacious and nicely done. Pets are allowed however if you are traveling without a pet you would never know dogs are in the building in regards to cleanliness and the occasional bark. Close proximity to all attractions. Elevator security features were a plus. Would definitely stay again
Bedding had stains, no mini fridge or microwave in the room, check-in a little awkward
Large comfortable room. Friendly, helpful staff.
No closet, shelves or drawers, so no place to put things like laundry out of sight! No desk (although when I inquired they brought up a small table and chair that worked OK). Instead of the Murphy bed (which I had no use for) I would prefer a desk and dresser or cupboard.
Swanky boutique hotel
I liked the bikes for use, the game room, the lounge/cafe/restaurant. I also appreciate the stage for community engagement and fitness room. The room itself was small but had a large, luxurious bathroom.
It didn't have a business center. I had to ask the front desk attendant to print items for me. Parking was additional and somewhat expensive.
We really enjoyed our stay. The layout and design of their "lobby" was very modern with an industrial twist to the decor. They don't have the typical imposing front desk. Instead staff meets you at the door with a tablet and checks you in. The elevators are extra secure with room key only access. There is valet parking which is extra, but well worth it as we would have spent the same or thereabouts at a parking garage. Our room was amazing and nicely decorated. Excellent bed, excellent shower, but next time we will bring a cooler. Our room had a great view and was very close to the venue at Rams Head Live where we were headed. The next day there was a great band playing in the lobby so we stayed longer for that too. Most of all their staff was incredible!!! They were always friendly, knowledgeable, and ready to do anything for you. That includes the maid in the elevator who gave us the history of the building and the head engineer who was helping out in their great bar/restaurant when they were way overloaded with people. Great experience from beginning to end. We can't wait to come back.
The urban element
There was limited hot water in the shower at times. Having some sort of room service would be nice.
With a stay at Hotel RL Baltimore Inner Harbor in Baltimore (Downtown Baltimore), you'll be a 4-minute walk from Baltimore Inner Harbor Marina and 6 minutes by foot from Baltimore Convention Center.
