The hotel is beautiful and the staff is even better! They have a complimentary shuttle that is super easy to use. The rooms are so spacious. Be careful of how your gps gets you to the hotel. We drove late at night through some rough areas because of our WAZE app. It was not the hotel's fault, it was ours!...

The front desk personnel were friendly and accommodating. They seem to work as a team. I have stayed at many Holiday Inns, however, this location has exemplary employees. The shuttle service to Johns Hopkins hospital was a real plus. All drivers were very helpful. Tina and Erika were extremely pleasant and caring. Their genuine concern was really appreciated. I highly...

My church traveled to Baltimore and we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. What a great choice! The hotel is beautiful! Our room was over sized with lots of windows. Since it was a renovated bank, it has tons of character. The hotel staff was nothing less than helpful. Tina Hubbard handled our reservations and everything was complete when we...
