My husband and I flew into Baltimore for a visit to Gettysburg and Hershey. Arriving late at night, we chose to stay nearby BWI and continue on to Gettysburg after some sleep. The room at this location was a spacious studio apartment, with full kitchen, kitchen dining for two, living area with 37" TV which swiveled for viewing in the...

My room was very clean only problem is that it's supposed to be nonsmoking and one of the 2 rooms was smoked in. I did call the front desk and let them know. If that room didn't stink of cigarettes it would have been great.

Hi Isabel A, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. I am so disappointed to hear about the cigarette smell in one of your suites.

Residence Inn by Marriott, Columbia, The first thing I must comment on this property is that the staff if the epitome of customer service. My hat is off to Ginnai, Darius, Emily and Michael.

I live overseas but whenever I'm MD I always stay at the Residence Inn Ellicott City and am never disappointed. The rooms have everything you'd need, the staff are wonderfully helpful and professional, and the housekeepers do an excellent job. The breakfast is also perfect. I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.

I started the trip with a problem with my reservation - not good. The hotel staff I have to say more than made up for it during my stay. They were extremely polite and helpful at all turns during the weekend. I think the hotel was at or near full capacity, so they were stretched. My wife asked for oatmeal...

Nope. After my March review I had a message from their GM apologizing for the grotty room & bad breakfast hygiene. I always appreciate when a business is proactive so I tried them again. Wish I hadn't. I arrived at 11:15pm, tired and ready for a good nights rest. The sullen desk clerk assigned me a 1st floor handicap room...

I recently visits this residence inn on business. I enjoy staying at Marriott properties and found that this property lived up to my expectations. My suite was spacious and very clean.

This is a decent RI & well located if you have business in the BWI-DC corridor. It's best for those with a car as there isn't a shuttle & the only restaurant nearby is a Bob Evans. Maybe you like Bob Evans? To each his own - I won't judge (but I also won't eat there either). Rooms: C RI's...
