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!

... really have made that airport's day. 7th in the queue for avgas, and no stairs so could not get off the plane. At least we could use the loo. They gave us 2 cups of water and a Granola bar. Four and a half hours later, after multiple "updates" about queues for fuel, open/shut airport etc, they suggested taxiing to the terminal to get food. But, as other jets had done this, we grabbed a space and took off.
... will see!
If there is such a thing as a perfect flight on Southwest, I think we took it today.
- Flight leaves on time
- We are seated in the exit row (more leg room)
- Nobody sneezing around us
- Silky smooth flight
- Landed early
... also an issue. We were lucky enough to find a nice hotel near by. We checked out of our first hotel and headed down the road. By the time we got the our new hotel we felt like we were in heaven. We owe a big thanks to the front desk man, Gerald, who was a great deal of help to us. Before you begin to feel bad for us, we are now sitting outside blogging by the pool of our hotel, enjoying the beautiful weather. Happy to be staying in a better ...
... DC. Pennsylvania Ave leading up to the White House was closed because the president of some other country (don't know who yet) is staying at the Willard Hotel.
Tomorrow we have a tour of the Capitol Building thanks to our friend, George Price. We are super excited. No telling who we might see.
... I envied their set up but at the same time I'm glad we are doing our own thing and not being tied down to an unenjoyable job. We walked around Baltimore town a bit and stopped off at a nice little pub. The weather was perfect and people were just getting back from an Orioles game. Had a nice little burger with pork belly in it. While we were eating a drunk guy walked straight into a pole and collapsed, literally in the gutter. His body looked just ...
