Historical Traveler Reviews Baltimore Hunt Valley Inn Wyndham Affiliate
Okay if you need to be there.
I've had to stay at the Hunt Valley Marriott many times through the years while working/enjoying various conventions. It's not a bad place for such events, as there are quite a few meeting rooms and they pretty much allow event-goers to take over the hotel space, hallways, etc as "necessary".
Rooms have always been acceptably clean and comfortable. I know they DO have a tendency to overbook around large conventions, so my recommendation if you are staying there for an event is to ARRIVE EARLY for check-in--don't wait until later in the day or evening as you may no longer have your room.
One of the biggest annoyances of the place is that rooms basically sprawl over two floors, leading to very long walks to the elevators, the parking lot, the meeting rooms, etc.
The Cinnamon Tree restaurant serves a very nice breakfast buffet. However, evening service leaves a lot to be desired and the food has gone seriously downhill in recent years. It used to be a great place to have a nice meal; on my last few visits the food was all heavy-handed, sloppy, greasy, and way overpriced for what you get.
All in all, I wouldn't go out of my way to book a stay here as there are equally nice, if not nicer, hotels nearby at better prices. However, if you are coming out to Hunt Valley for a convention, it's not a bad place to be.
They overbooked the hotel. One thing you guys should know when they say you are guarenteed a Non smoking double bed room that dosen't mean you will get that. That means you will get a room regardless as to wheather it is in that hotel or somwhere else. We had a convection at the hunt valley in and missed it. The hotel staff were nasty and rude
This is a OK hotel. The building is so old and employees are so rude. Long walks to your room and cockroaches are common. Some employees don't speak english. Took forever to get my air conditioning fixed and general manager Heinz Worschic curses and mistreats his employees.
Nice for the price
We often travel to Baltimore to go to Oriole games and love the Inner Harbor, but hate traveling into the city and hate paying the downtown prices even more. Hunt Valley is an awesome alternative for those traveling from the north because the LightRail, Maryland's train system, takes you right into the city for about $3 round trip with NO parking fee!
Now about the hotel. The rooms are pretty nice. It is a pretty standard Marriott - with standard amenities. The Cinnamon Tree Restaurant has an awesome weekend buffet which I totally recommend. The staff has been courteous and very helpful.
Great place to stay
Stayed at the Hunt Valley for a conference in June 2005. The hotel staff was great. One attendee was on a scooter due to illness, the scooter malfunctioned in the lobby and the bellman called maintenence who responded and was able to make a repair and have him on his way. The morning attendant in the cafe/gift shop was extremely helpful and pleasant.
The rooms were nice and the restaurants were excellent. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Great restaurant, nice hotel, rude staff
I recently stayed at the Hunt Valley Marriott for a convention. The rooms are very nice and clean, and the Cinnamon Tree restaurant is fantastic (food and service). However, many of the front desk staff clearly need more training. They were generally uncouth, and lacking in concern for their guests. Most of them did their job as that, a job. There was no pride in providing superior service or going above and beyond the required to smile or wish guests a pleasant day. It was a very cold and odd experience.
In particular, when at 1am, I realized that my phone line was not turned on (and I needed to dial-up to send a very important business document), I called the front desk. Instead of apologizing and turning on my phone immediately, I was told that there was "nothing" the front desk clerk could do for me unless I go down to the front desk (at 1am!). Most other hotels I have stayed at would have acknowledged their mistake, turned on the phone, and asked that I stop by the front desk when I have a moment in the morning to settle any misunderstanding or mistake in their system. It was just a weird and unnecessarily unpleasant experience overall.
Perhaps I've just been very fortunate in all my business and leisure travels; I've encountered staff who took pride in their job in servicing guests. The staff at Hunt Valley Marriott just had bad morale and attitudes, and they just left a bad aftertaste.
Love Marriott Hunt Valley
i've stayed at this hotel on several occasions and just love it. The employees are extremely pleasant, the rooms are comfortable and roomy, we love the tennis courts, jacuzzi, heated indoor pool and exercise room. It's walking distance to a Metro stop and medium priced places to eat. It's a 2 minute drive to a supermarket. It's just terrific.
Had the pleasure of staying at Marriott's Hunt Valley Inn during a business trip. From the moment that I arrived, I was greeted by Yale Feldman, the General Manager who was in the lobby ready to help any guest who may need assistance. The Front Desk Manager Deborah, I believe her name was, was fantastic. She arranged for me to get a rental car and was very personable. The Cinnamon Tree Restaurant was good, I ate there for most of my stay. I would recommend the Maryland Crab Cakes, they are to die for. I was also greatful for the assistance of Nolan Opperman, who helped make several arrangements for me. The staff at this hotel, made my stay and my business event very sucessful.
What a fantastic hotel! Friendly staff, clean room, great food, wireless Internet access in the room and all public areas. Will be back to this hotel the next time I'm in the area. Much nicer than the other hotels in the area.
First of all, this hotel has a confusing exit /entrance to it via the Interstate. This hotel had fast check-in and a nice room BUT the employees were very rude! While at the pool (which needs cleaning/repairing) the people working in the pool area stared at us constantly. The bellhop was rude when I asked to use the luggage cart "Be sure and bring it back" was his response. As if I was going to steal it or something! Even after getting a rate of $101.00 from Expedia which is 40-50 less than Marriotts rate I would not stay here again.
