The staff was super kind. I was able to check in late. My room was waiting and even add an additional night with no issues. The shuttle to and from Hopkins makes it super convenient for anyone who is getting treatment there. I will be staying here again in two week sand would highly recommend this Holiday Inn to anyone....

I've had the pleasure of staying here several times in 2 months and simply love this hotel! I love the decor, particularly given that it used to be a bank - very cool! The staff are incredibly friendly and really seeks to ensure that you have a pleasant stay. They allow pets so I'm always curious about the cleanliness of...

I chose this hotel because of it's location (close to John Hopkins). The hotel and rooms were very updated and clean. The best part of my stay was the way I was greeted at the front desk.

The hotel is right in the middle of downtown Baltimore. The lobby area is large and much fancier than your typical Holiday Inn Express. The front desk staff I interacted with were very friendly and helpful. My room was clean and comfortable. All the public areas I saw were clean. Keurig coffee makers with pods in each room. Of course,...
