Historical Traveler Reviews Pier 5 Hotel Baltimore
Not a magical experience!
Pier V was one of my worst hotel experiences. We asked for a non-smoking room... the room smelled like smoke. On our 2nd night at this hotel, there was a "hotel function" in the ballroom... at 2am there were about 150 very loud, obnoxious people outside my room window waiting to get cars from valet parking. The fan in our room barely made enough "white noise" to drown out the sound so we could sleep! The Magial Family Package included an "Express Continental Breakfast" that took about 30-40 minutes to be delivered by the waitstaff every day. The only thing nice I have to say about this hotel was check-in & check out was efficent & the concierge tried her best to be friendly. PLEASE go somewhere else if you can. I wasted my money.
Nice location but overpriced
This Hotel is in an excellent location for a weekend stay at the Inner Harbor, close to all major attractions. I agree with some of the previous reviewers that the rooms could be cleaner (the carpet in our room was due for cleaning), but overall, the Hotel was decent. Yes, I have stayed at Holiday Inns that were as nice, but it's tough to get price, location, and "Disney" level quality all in one location. So if convenient location is important to you, this is the place.
One warning, though...parking is very expensive and not included with your hotel room cost. Be sure to ask about parking rates before you book.
We recently attended a conference at the Pier 5 Hotel. Let me start by saying that is was a very enjoyable experience. From the time we checked in to the time we let, it seemed like everyone bent over backwrds for us. I was here with my family and their front desk went out of their way to make sure my family was well taken care of while I was in the meeting. To this day My daughter still talks about it. Job well done.
We recently stayed at the Pier 5 Hotel. What a fantastic experience.
Everyone went out of their way for us. The rooms were large and very colorful. Loved the decor of the lobby. We will be back.
Best in Baltimore
I highly reccommend this hotel. The rooms are beautiful, there is much to do in the Inner Harbor. when we checked, we were treated like royalty.
This is a mediocre hotel. The "haborview" consisted of looking out over a dirty waterway, NOT the harbor. Staff was OK. Rooms OK, nothing special. Eurasian restaurant was great. There are much nicer hotels in Baltimore with actual "harborviews", better service, more amenities.
Terrible Stay - Terrible Hotel
We also had a terrible stay at the Pier 5 Hotel. This was one of the WORST HOTELS I have EVER seen. We chose this hotel based on its website - which is very decieving. It led us to believe that this was a First Class Hotel. We have to agree with the other two reviewers, that we have stayed in nicer Holiday Inn's or other hotels off the interstate. The rooms & furniture were shockingly dirty. The entire place needs remodling and revamping as its falling apart! The staff consisted of 50% helpful people and then the other 50% were quite rude. The breakfast buffet was terrible and not replentished. If staying in Baltimore - try another hotel and stay clear of this one.
Pier 5 Hotel - Harbor Magic??? Anything But magical!! Worst hotel in Baltimore!
We just returned from an overnight stay in this hotel.This has to be the absolute WORST hotel in Baltimore...We had planned a weekend there, but after one night had to leave.We purchased a Harbor Magic, Romance Package at $269/night...What a joke! The room was DIRTY. I have stayed in cleaner roadside hotels!Many of the items in the room did not work, i.e. the phoneand air conditioner.The staff was pleasant enough - but can only work with what they have.I DO suggest the McCormick and Schmick's resturant.that is the ONLY thing this hotel has going for it.
Best Time of My Life
Our stay was absolutely fabulous. I have never stayed in such a wonderful hotel with such useful staff. I don't know what the guy from Dallas was talking about, but our stay couldnt possibly be any better. Highly recommended
Don't Do It
If it is the last place to stay in Baltimore, don't go to Baltimore. It was that bad. Motel 6 is cleaner and the staff more helpful and friendly.

We are halfway through our two week trip! Last night we decided to use today to catch up on some much needed sleep. We slept in until 8:00 and left the hotel by 9:15 this morning. Our lovely hotel, and new best friend, Gerald, from the front desk, recommended that we take a water taxi today. Best advice ever! We got to sit back, cruise across the water, and check out the city. We even had to change water taxis, just like when we used public transit in Boston. The city of ...

... physicality and transcended them altogether. The top of the house, my apartment, was the next stage of my existence, and it was above the physical. It was my new spiritual abode, and it was just a little bit closer to the heavens. It wasn't until the floorboards had been ripped away that I realized how far I had truly come, the same realization of growth that the floodwater had forced me to realize way back in Maryland. I was dying, but I was also becoming more alive, because ...
