We checked in at about 3pm for a two-night stay at this centrally-located downtown hotel. It was perched atop a hill located beside the Marriott, across the Chateau Victoria Suites and a few steps away from the Inner Harbour and the Legislature. Three people in groups of two to four were ahead of me in the check-in line but it went pretty smoothly. I noted that they were all given cookies at the same time that their keys were handed out, which I thought was a nice, welcoming gesture. When my turn came, no cookies were offered so I wondered if it had to do something with my being a new HHilton Honors member(?) which I found strange but no matter, I didn’t ask.
We headed to our suite at the 7th floor, it smelled and looked clean. The suite was very well appointed indeed: two double queen beds on one side and a pull-out bed in the next room, linens were very clean, the floor seemed quite clean, the requested extra pillows were there as well and the coffee supplies were well stocked. However, we had to request for extra paper and towel supplies as there weren’t enough for four; these came in no time at all. The beds were firm; the sheets were crisp and white. We didn’t try the restaurant downstairs as we wanted to explore as much as possible considering that we were only going to be here for a little more than a couple of days. Overall, the staff and the valets were friendly and helpful and the overall experience was very pleasant. I’m still wondering about those cookies though, perhaps next time?
