... the British to give up hopes of capturing Baltimore.

At 7am on September 14, the British withdrew down the river. As the British sailed away the American soldiers fired the morning gun and hoisted the large flag, while the musicians played "Yankee Doodle." American lawyer Francis Scott Key watched the bombardment of Fort McHenry from a ship in the Patapsco River. Key was helping to negotiate the freedom of an American doctor, held captive on a British ship. The ...

... two books, watched three films, done one self-portrait, taken two pictures of my hotel and hostel bed, talked to one German, one American, one Finnish and lastly I have used up five toilet rolls (for the nose...) since acquiring this bigger and better American virus! Hopefully, I will be moving on nearer the end of the week to Washington... Thank you for all your get well emails - much appreciated x x ...

Chapter Four: Road Trip!

... doors and stepped back into my car. I had half-expected the doors to be locked again, but thankfully they were not. I jumped back into my car and drove away, speeding directly into the violent storm.

I drove on until I found a Super-8 motel in Kingsport, TN which had very friendly and sane-looking staff at the front desk. Run-of-the-mill hillbillies. I spent the night there, in Room 111 with an extra-large mushroom and jalapeno pizza, a 2-liter Pepsi and a marathon of ...

Camden Yards and Our Nephew Bob

A travel blog entry by


... if we’d actually tried to camp outdoors in the Phoenix area, our trip would have ended early and ignominiously because we’d have been fricasseed in our tent. So I credit Bob with having saved our lives and our dignity.

Although his team is the New York Mets, Bob’s favorite ballpark is Camden Yards, where the Orioles play. Despite an impossibly busy work schedule, he and his lovely girlfriend Chris traveled to meet us in Baltimore, where ...

Day 21 - Three Weeks! Washington D.C.

... building. It was fun seeing the historical senate and house rooms, and learning about some of the traditions in various areas of the building as well. There is a compass rose in the center of the building that apparently stood as the key to city planning, that was cool. Other neat things like an area where each president walks through and "pauses" on his way to be inaugurated.

After our tour we had lunch in the ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Mount Vernon Hotel Baltimore

    Do not stay here!


    A friend and I came to town to stay one night and attend an Oriole's game. The hotel did not have my reservation, checked us into a dirty room and then gave us a room that did not have a working bathtub/shower! The last item was not discovered until the morning. The rooms are old, dirty and hot. The air never changed the room temperature and the windows are keylocked shut. The staff never apologized for any of the problems. The staff told us to take the wrong lite rail, thank goodness we discovered this before we got on the train.


    Get what you pay for


    Well what do you expect for <$60/night? I had a pleasant stay in this hotel for two nights. It is about a ten minute walk from the convention center but as Baltimore is so safe it is worth it to see some of the city that is NOT the Inner Harbor.

    The staff were helpful at all times with taxis and directions.

    I do not reccomend the coffee in the morning and the breakfast continental etc. was not good. What is it with these places that think the only preserves we like are grape jelly and mixed fruit?

    While it did not have high speed internet access I was able to piggy back on a local business line for some of my stay. Would I stay here again? For this price, yeah sure!

    Below Hygienic standards


    It was highly disappointing. The room had a stink, the air conditioning didnt function, the evening staff was rude and had attitude. It was totally sub standard and the quality was disgraceful.

    When You Went To The Best Inn...


    You should have chosen to settle in at the Best Inn. We have stayed there at least 6 times in the past three years, and received excellent service, a CLEAN room and QUIET! We've stayed downtown a number of times and been disappointed. Best Inn delivers comfort at an inexpensive daily rate. Next time you visit Baltimore, book Best Inn. You will save money and enjoy your stay. Promise.

    Stay if You Dare


    From the moment I walked in the door, I knew this lodging event would be an experience. A grand old dame of a hotel, perhaps? In need of cosmetic sugergy----lots of it. One of two elevators of the nine story building stopped working almost immediately making for an exceedingly long wait. Being reasonably fit, I took to the stairs to go down and up. However, there were many patrons for whom the stairs were not on option. While waiting for the elevator, one of the housekeepers joined me for the wait and mumbled under her breath, "oh, not again" and just shook her head

    Stay here!


    I just wanted to say that I had the best time here in Baltimore, and it was because of the Mount Vernon Hotel. The rooms were ok, but the best part was the staff. I drove in from Philly with a few buddies to check out Camden Yards, and we checked in after one of the night games. The girls who work there are all hot, college chicks who live in the area. Every night they were up for partying in our room with us. I probably shouldn't say anymore, but I recommend this hotel highly!

    Ruining the Reputation of Baltimore


    My family and I decided to take a trip to Baltimore (my first time there). What an experience with the hotel from the moment we checked in. When we went up to our room we decided to look out the window at some teenagers marching when we turned around there was blood all over the blinds. I work in the health field and immediately called the front desk and asked to speak to the manager. He refused to see us face to face and the problems seemed to be never ending. After looking in the drawer of a night stand for the bible we found some marijuana in the drawer. I obviously was not pleased as my 4 year old son was also standing there. We were given a hard time but managed to get another room. Do not stay at the Mount Vernon Hotel. Totally bad experience.

    Functional but dreary hotel


    We stayed here to celebrate a birthday and wanted to go the cheap route. The room was a bargain close to downtown, but we got what we paid for: a clean place to sleep.

    The hotel room seemed clean enough. The place hasn't been updated or upgraded in a long time from what I can tell.

    Continental breakfast was a sad affair. Lots of danish in plastic bags.

    There seems to be some sort of college cooperative agreement here b/c there was a student lounge on the 1st floor and a lot of college-age comings and goings.

    The staff was apathetic and slow on both check in and check out.

    Basically, if you are looking to save $, it's a good price and a clean room. If you want a "nice" hotel, this isn't it. Spend more.

    Don't Stay Here


    We picked this hotel because it earned four stars on Hotels. It would be four stars ... in Fallujah, perhaps or maybe Kabul.

    The first room they showed us had no lights. We would have had to dress by the light of the TV. There was a toilet sitting in the hallway and the whole floor had the atmosphere of a jail.

    When we complained, we got another room that had lights, but smelled like a moldy towl and had a torn and stained carpet.

    Even though we prepaid for our room, we left and stayed at a Holiday Inn several miles away. It cost us double, but it was worth it.
