Have a cheerful stay in Charm City. Radisson Baltimore Downtown-Inner Harbor is a comfortable urban base that covers all the basics, so you can focus on acquainting yourself with your intriguing setting. Specifically, that setting is – as the name suggests – right near the Inner Harbor, where the National Aquarium, Maryland Science Center and Harborplace are located, and steps from downtown sights (think the historic Hippodrome Theater). Getting around is a breeze, with the historic neighborhoods of Mount Vernon and Jonestown also within walking distance.
As for all those basics you won’t need to worry about, they run from a fitness room – conveniently open 24 hours a day – to a business center with computers and printers. Your abode comes with a 37-in. flat-screen TV with all your favorite channels, like HBO and Showtime. And to ensure you really get the full local experience, Radisson doesn’t only have its own restaurant, a laid-back spot called Balto Tavern & Tap, but has partnered with several others in the area; order from one of those on the hotel’s list, and delivery is on the house.
Your room – one of 323 – is comfortably and conveniently appointed, housing a refrigerator and an ergonomic work station. Turn on your 37-in. flat-screen HDTV to surf the premium channels available, including CNN, Showtime, ESPN and HBO.Deluxe Corner King Guest rooms boast spectacular city views, while Premium Guest rooms with two double beds offer added perks like a microwave and refrigerator.
Pop by Balto Tavern & Tap for light bites and drinks. Happy Hour takes place daily from 5 to 7pm, and you can pick up a to-go snack 24 hours a day. As a perk, complimentary food delivery from select area restaurants is also offered.
The hotel is located near Baltimore’s Hippodrome Theater and the Inner Harbor, which is home to the National Aquarium, Pier Six Pavilion and the Power Plant Live! entertainment complex, plus hundreds of shops, cafés and restaurants. You’re also walking distance from the Royal Farms Arena, Oriole Park at Camden Yards and the convention center. For some local history, visit Fort McHenry, where the battle that inspired “The Star-Spangled Banner” took place.
How to Get There
Not a comfortable place. Uber and taxis tell you the area is not safe. Prostitutes appear to be operating in the lobby gyrating on men’s laps. Security unable to find parcels delivered. Linen is not ironed. Restaurant has no guacamole but barlady very pleasant and sympathetic. She admits staff are very lazy
Upon check-in we we're informed the hotel was experiencing issues with hot water. We were given an indefinite timeframe for the hot water to return. We were provided with a free buffet breakfast the next morning.
Arrived on Saturday 230pm. Hotel valet was completely booked. They told me to go self park 2 blocks away on Lombard which was not affiliated with the hotel. Parked, crossed the street with my luggage. Got to the hotel lobby. Was then told the hot water was unavailable. Come on.. the hotel gave me a discount but I was not happy. The Cabana level outdoors was closed off, the room was freezing and even though I increased the temperature it wouldn't turn off the AC. I ended up turning it off entirely. I booked this through hotels.com. I should have gone with Lord Baltimore next door. Same rate.
Nice modern room, pool and good staff. Bed was soft and everything was close to the action. We parked our car here and walked everywhere else. Close enough to the action, but far enough away to be calm and quite at night. Also, 7-Eleven minutes away for late night snacks.
My stay at this hotel was ok. The interior meaning the lobby area and basically the 1st floor was nice. My room was ok, nothing special. From what I remember about the room, I felt like it was kind of dated. This hotel was doing some renovations at the time of my stay and there was a north and south side. If you stay at the hotel, my advice would be to ask the front desk to place you on which ever side was updated and or added to the hotel within the last year. I stayed in the main part of the hotel; if that helps any.
