Historical Traveler Reviews Admiral Fell Inn Baltimore
We stayed at this hotel for an overnight holiday meeting for my husband's company. It exceeded our expectations. We had a corner room on the second floor that was huge. Very clean. Friendly staff. Beautiful hotel. We had our company dinner downstairs in the new restaurant True. The food was fantastic! Waitress was great-personable, fun, knowledgable of the foods on the menu, just wonderful! The next morning we went down to the restaurant again for our complimentary breakfast which consisted of scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, oatmeal, breads, fruits, coffee, tea, juices, etc. We were expecting muffins and donuts! Definately recommend this hotel and restaurant!!!!
Great Location - friendly staff - clean rooms - very pleasant stay.
The perfect location
My husband and I spent the weekend in Fell's Point at the Admiral Fell Inn. The hotel is in the perfect location, right on the corner of this historic town. The hotel was quaint and the staff was wonderful. There was even a resident "ghost"! We would go back to the Inn in a heartbeat!
Very Bad Choice
The website totally misrepresented the Inn. Against my better judgement we stayed more than 1 night in April 2004. The rooms were tight, cramped and runned down, the lobby was leaking and we learn there was a fire renovation going on that affected some aspects of the hotel. There is a difference between quaint and runned down and believe me this is totally misrepresented on the website. For $200+ a night this is a joke. I wouldn't pay more than $50 a night to be subjected to losing sleep due to several bars located within 75 ft of the Inn that stayed opened past 2am in the morning and scruffty bums that alway pester you for money and food within 10 second after stepping out of the Inn or your car. The most ridiculous item was a $4 mandatory Internet connection charge on my bill that in most every hotel I stayed at as a business traveller was free or optional. This is not a family environment and I would not stay there again. I finally relocated to the Hyatt within a block of the Inner Harbour for $99 a night and salvaged a ruined vacation.
Paper Thin Walls, but otherwise good stay
We stayed at the Admiral Fell 3/25/04 for my birthday. I was sick with a sinus infection, but we couldn't cancel the trip because it was prepaid, so we made the best of it.
When we checked in at 3:15, we were told check-in wasn't until 4:00 and we'd have to come back. They didn't offer to take our bags, but took our car by valet which meant when our room was ready at 4:20, the valet had to go and get our car, drive it back to the hotel and we retrieved our bags and he then took our car back to the garage. Seems like it would've been easier if they would've just offered to stow our bags somewhere instead of running the valet back and forth 3 blocks each way.
We had a King Smoking room (although we wanted Non Smoking). I can usually smell any trace of smoke, but there was none in the room, so it was fine to have the smoking room. Our bed was comfortable and had a small canopy coming from the wall over it. The bedspread was chenille and had a few yellowish stains on it, so we quickly tossed it aside.
The bathroom was clean with a very strong spraying shower. We had a small window that looked out onto the street. There is a very ugly painted skylight above the bed to try to bring in more light, but it's actually quite annoying in the morning when you are trying to sleep.
The carpet seemed fairly new berber type. Be prepared to meader down winding hallways and up a few steps here and there for some of the rooms. Our room was on the 3rd floor, but till we got there, I'd call it more like the 3rd and a half floor.
As we got to our room, housekeeping was still cleaning other rooms and the housekeeping manager stood across the hall from our room yelling at her staff and talking into a walkie talkie very loudly. It was very unprofessional and distracting. Check-out is 12, so I wasn't sure why so many rooms were still being cleaned at 4:00 and even later.
We went out to dinner and returned to our room early (7:30) since I was still recovering from the sinus infection. It was quiet as we got to our room and we were looking forward to a good night's sleep. Around 2AM, we were rudely awakened by about 4 or so guests in the hallway talking loudly and bouncing their suitcases along the floor and walls.
They had obviously been drinking. Now, I understand this isn't the inn's fault, but I wish when you check into a hotel they ask your plans for the evening as far as what time you will be going to bed and then place people of similar timeframes in the same area of the hotel. I know that's probably asking a lot, but there have been so many times when I've been awakened by loud people in the hallway. It doesn't matter if you pay $50/night or $200/night, someone always seems to be loud, so if they could somehow separate the late night crowd from the early to bed crowd, I'd be so happy.
In the morning, they had some juice and bagels for their breakfast. We checked out around 11am.
Good Points:The location is great for a stay in Fells Point and the staff was very polite. Our prepaid rate through Expedia was $159 which is reasonable for the area.
Bad Points: Old building with paper thin walls, dirty bedspread and they were doing work on some of the rooms and they could've done a better job of closing off that area.
They recommend going to Kali's Court for a nice dinner. We took their recommendation and although the atmosphere was very nice at the restaurant, the crabcakes I had were so spicy I could only eat half of one. A good crabcake doesn't need to be killed with spices to be tasty.
Also, it's very expensive, which is fine if it's worth it.
They recommend Jimmy's for breakfast. Bad idea unless you like soggy toast and mushy home fries.
I would probably stay again because of the location, but only if I could get the low rate. I would also probably not stay here on a weekend, especially in season, since I imagine it could be very loud since Fells Point is known for it's bars.
Our stay at the Inn was very disappointing. The room was cramped, the hotel was dirty and we had several lovely roach motels in our room.
Fells Point was great fun, but I will never stay at the Admiral Fell Inn again!
Romance at Home
I have lived in Baltimore all my life and did not know this wonderful place was here. I was given as an employee of Johns Hopkins and thought this would great for my anniversary. My husband and I had a very nice, intimate dinner. Our room was absolutely beautiful. The staff was friendly and very helpful.
We are going to make it a habit of going often.
Admiral Fell did not fall on his face..
If you are into boutique hotels without the pretense then this place is for you. They need to relace the rugs outside the rooms in the hallways but otherwise everyone was very accomodating. The price was very nice and you could walk literally in any direction to grab your first beer.
I think I walked in every direction to get a beer. Restaurants, shopping, and music abound in the area. No taking a taxi to anything here. You can do it all within a two block radius. We hit the blues clubs (Cat's Eye, Full Moon Saloon and Bertha's). Two was nice one was not. Full Moon Saloon had some awful band with a horrendous drummer. I could of played better when I was twelve on my mother's pots and pans.
The breakfast the next day is really nicely done down at the hotels small restaurant and it's free with your room rate. Not just Continental either. Bacon, Sausage and eggs as well. I would not change to much here maybe just the paid valet $15 bucks per night.
Great anniversary stay
Spent a night here in January for a 1-year dating anniversary and enjoyed the unbeatable location in the heart of Fells Point. Enjoyed the Jacuzzi in the room, although I would rather not have been on the ground floor. The Sunday brunch was spectacular and that alone may draw us back.
I stayed at the Admiral in the heat of July in the summer of 2002. They will take a small pet for an additional fee if you MUST bring Thumper! The staff is extremely courteous and welcoming...you will immediately feel like a local. The location at South Broadway is a veritable circus midway on Saturday night, but if you are an early riser, do take a walk down the Broadway pier (across the street) early a.m. to get a taste of the REAL waterfront atmosphere. It is really remarkable! Location is great, service is great, air conditioning very frigid for Baltimore's sweltering summers. Recommend highly.

The top level concourse is similar to the Rangers' stadium in that it has elevator/stair towers placed intermittently along the perimeter, giving it an almost castle feel.
The game was great fun, probably number one for sheer entertainment. The Rangers didn't ...

... br> Richele - and many of her friends - had actually studied dancing in college. As a result, the reception featured the most energetic crowd of dancers I'd ever seen at a wedding. I only wished there would've been a few more romantic songs; I hoped to dance with a sarcastic-nosed blonde who owned yoga studios, and whose thin figure wore a cosmos-blue dress. I should've tried calling her "a pretty, older woman."
