The staff was great. Hotel was nice and spacious. Definitely a good value in to a town where it a hard to find a room. Would have been better if there were not motion sensors for everything! So God help you if you move around in your sleep because the motion sensors which are meant to save energy will trigger...

My impression is that this hotel was opened as a way to make $ off of unwanted apartments. The room I stayed in had open plumbing in the bathroom (floor & wall) where it appears that a washer & dryer combo was once planned, years ago. There are hardly any fixtures or decor within the enormous space. There are motion...

The first time I stayed at the Black Olive was this past July. My boyfriend stayed here our anniversary weekend and absolutely loved it. The Inn has a homey feel and seems more like an apartment than a hotel. There is tons of space in the room, comfortable bed, and great Jacuzzi tub. The downtown area of Fells Point is...

So I will be honest up front, the last time we stayed here was four years ago. Our first visit made such an impact us on, that it was a given that we wanted to stay here again. It was that perfect get away for my husband and I. First time, we had the corner suite with balcony seating. We...

There are really not enough words to explain how much I love this place. I stayed there to celebrate my 44th birthday walking around Harbor East and Fells Point, sipping wine, and reading. Everything was perfect - from the complimentary Baltimore-themed gift I received, to a well-appointed, clean, comfortable and spacious suite. The Inn is close to pretty much everything,...

Best hotel I've stayed at!! The rooms were spacious and comfortable with a nice couch/tv area. There were plenty of channels available and apps like Netflix so evenings were very enjoyable! The bathroom was huge and comfortable and everything was very clean. Service was wonderful and very kind. I would love to come back!

I wanted to get a nicer than usual hotel room for my boyfriend's 30th birthday and I appreciated the ecofriendly angle of this hotel. I was shocked by what we found. Not only were the conceirges completely unprepared to present Baltimore (they didn't have maps on hand?), but I knew we weren't in for the luxurious stay I thought we...

I have only written one prior hotel review - that was for a small boutique hotel that I love in Paris and is spectacular. This hotel experience unfortunately merits a review, albeit not a good one. When we arrived, we waited twenty minutes for someone to show up at the desk to check us in, (no phone number to call,...
