The location to Johns Hopkins is one of the primary reasons that I booked this hotel. The service is what keeps me coming back. The hotel is clean, the complimentary breakfast is a great start to the day, and the shuttle service is excellent. Dominic was most helpful and very pleasant!

Our room was beautiful! Everything was spotless! The employees were all very nice and very helpful when we had questions. The breakfast was very good and was constantly replenished. We had never been to Baltimore but the hotel was very easy to get to and the shuttle made traveling to John's Hopkins and inner harbor sites easy for us!
