Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Baltimore at the Stadiums
Great Place to stay
Wonderful place to stay. Rooms are as nice as some 4 star hotels that we have stayed in (a little smaller than a 4 star room but just as nice). The only thing that gave us a problem is the shuttle. They told us to call to pick us up , we waited 45 minutes after our suggested time to be told that they only pick up on the hour. Otherwise this is a GREAT deal.
Stay at the Holiday Inn Express at the Stadiums
If you are looking for three-star PLUS quality at a two-star PRICE, this is the hotel for you! We appreciated the clean, friendly, atmosphere, the nice pool for the kids with a great lifeguard, and the adequate continental breakfast (hard to find in Baltimore). We especially appreciated the overall cost which is much lower than many other hotels. This one has queen sized beds, and no cots like many of the pricier hotels. It also offers a lower parking fee AND a shuttle to many of the places that you would want/need to go. It is within walking distance of the stadiums. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit (two families with kids), and we plan to use this hotel for many visits to come.
We arrived at the hotel at 2:15 pm on August 19, 2006. We parked in the "10 minute area" and went to the front desk. We told the front desk person that we had a reservation for that evening and knew that check-in time was 3:00pm. We explained that our car was in a short term spot and asked if we could enter the hotel's secure parking lot. The clerk denied our request by stating that if we didn't have a room we couldn't use the lot. During our discussion, another clerk approached us and asked our name. She checked our reservation and informed us that our room was ready and gave us our room card (which is also used to access the parking lot).
The location of the hotel, 1701 Russell St., required us to walk through what appeared to be questionable under the highway bridge areas. We did not feel safe returning in the evening from the Inner Harbor so we had to take a cab.
The room was very good.
Good rate for Baltimore
This hotel is a good deal relative to the expensive hotels in the inner harbor. It is only a 5 minute complimentary shuttle to the harbor, and is significantly cheaper. The hotel is new and is in a semi industrial area. The rooms are nicely decorated, on the small side but nice. Comfortable bed and shower, the A/C is loud. Very nice outdoor pool. Not many restaurants around. You can walk to Camden Yards (@ 10 minutes) but the area is a little rough, not a brutal walk though. Ask to stay on the pool side as there is quite a bit of traffic so it can be noisy. If staying at a nice, clean hotel for a good price is your priority, choose this hotel.
A Great Stay!
We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Baltimore At the Stadiums and it was just wonderful! The room was very spacious and comfortable and the bathroom had a lovely shower. The staff was very friendly and attentive to our needs. However, the complimentary shuttle is not very reliable and I wouldn't recommend taking it. It can only fit up to 14 people and if it is filled up when you get there, you might have to wait another hour to be picked up. Otherwise, everything else was great. The complimentary breakfast was satisfying and offers something for everyone. The area is not very walkable due to the highway but nevertheless it seemed safe and was conveniently located within driving distance of all the major attractions. Overall, this was a beautiful hotel and I would recommend it to anyone staying in Baltimore!
Very very nice, but the breakfast....
We just recently stayed the weekend at the Holiday Inn Express. The location was great, the staff was extraordinarily friendly and helpful, the room was spacious, but... Unfortunately the pool was being renovated so we couldn't use it. However we were given the option to use a local facility. We did appreciate that choice. The food service on the other hand needed help. The one lady who was in charge of the morning buffet worked really hard, but she just could not handle it herself. She asked for help and only after someone in our party complained to the desk did they send help. The food was good but more space was needed to be alotted to the buffet. There were too many people in a small area that did not have enough food. I would stay here again, but hopefully the pool would be open and there would be more food available.
Right next to the stadiums
This was a great hotel. The price for the room is half of what you are going to get in the inner harbor. It is literally right next to Ravens stadium and on the other side of that is Orioles Stadium but a little to far to walk to the inner harbor but when you get down there there is plenty of parking garages.. We went to a day baseball game and walked and it is a very short walk. The neighborhood in between the hotel and the stadium isn't all that bad. There are alot of people around walking to and from the stadium so it make you feel more secure. There are a few homeless persons around but they do not bother you and some travels around since the greyhound terminal is a block behind it. The parking is great. It is fenced in and you can only access it with your room key so it isn't packed with people that don't belong. I would definetly stay here again when we go to more ball game weather it be football or baseball. Holiday Inn management. If you are reading this review. Have some of your employees volunteer and clean up the trash under the over pass in between the stadiums since ninety persent of the hotel was walking to the game. I would recommend this hotel to any travelers going to Baltimore and don't want to pay inner harbor hotel fees.
This hotel has recently opened and brand new. Staff are really friendly. The hotel has a large car park and secure. The rooms are spacious with coffee making facilities, free shampoo, conditioner and lotion. Beds are really comfortable. Cleanliness is superb. In the morning the complimentary breakfast is very good, with a selection of pastries, cereals, buffet hot breakfast, juices - excellent. Also the internet at this hotel is free to use. This hotel is in a good location for the football and baseball - One thing to note, if you decide to walk to the stadiums (not far about 10 minutes) there is a stair case which is quite steep that goes over the railway line, its not in a very attractive area to walk through at night, suggest walking there in the light and get a cab back in the dark. All in all this hotel was a good find and very reasonable for the price and in a excellent location.
Loved the Holiday Inn Express
I recently stayed at the new Holiday Inn Express Baltimore Stadiums. I say "new" because I got the chance to chat with a member of the management staff while there, and found out that this hotel had recently undergone a $4-million renovation - trust me, it shows! It is absolutely gorgeous and what a fantastic location! For personal reasons, I was very glad it was so convenient to the University of Maryland Medical Center, as well as many super Baltimore attractions! When arriving, I expected friendly service, but what I received was exceptional! I plan to spread the word about this hotel, and cannot wait to stay there again myself!
Happy at Holiday Inn Express Baltimore
My wife and I just spent our wedding night at the beautiful new Holiday Inn Express Baltimore at the Stadiums and it was fantastic! We had one of their gorgeous whirlpool suites which made our first night as man & wife so romantic and special! This hotel just overflows with luxury, excellent service, there's a wonderful swimming pool, and our breakfast was incredible! And guys, you're so close to both the Stadiums as well as other Baltimore super sites. I have stayed at 5-star hotels before when traveling on business that couldn't hold a candle to this Holiday Inn Express! We highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again in a heartbeat!

In about a week, the ship - presumably the California Highway mentioned in a previous post - will take the rig from Baltimore, and take about three weeks to deliver it to England. In that time, we'll get some chores done at my sister's. As of this writing, I hope to fly out from New York, so we can do some touristy New York stuff.
... for not having them changed before I left Maryland. I then turned off my Epica CD and started to flip through the FM radio station channels, searching for news of the storm. As it turns out, this particular storm was a one-in-a-thousand kind of beast, and had descended upon Tennessee with little to no warning. The general consensus was to stay off the roads until the storm had passed unless driving was an absolute necessity. I was quite irritated, as I had only driven a few ...

The kids were cyclonic in their movements, speedily but aimlessly shuffling along the walls, tables, chairs and floors like those ball-shaped monsters from the Critters movies. Their collective movement was a heavily blurred terror of zig-zags that caused all classroom items not bolted to the wall or floor to bounce around incessantly as if gravity wasn't functioning properly. I had never seen anything like it before in my ...

But, the kids were excited to get back to the routine, and Josh was excited to get back to work, and I was happy to be home and done with the responsibility of keeping track of our life on the road, and so I don't know that we really took that extra moment of appreciation. I mean, we are a full 4 months post trip, and I am only now writing the final blog ...
... burn off a bit of our dinner and worked up a thirst. We had a couple in the outdoor bar upstairs and were then joined by Justin for a couple more, we left the pub about 10:00 and head back up the hill to home. We'll have a couple more before turning in.
Looking forward to picking up the car tomorrow and heading to the O's v Rays game tomorrow ...
