Radisson Hotel at Cross Keys

... been another tear fest! Later that afternoon we went to watch Laura's first basketball game of the season. It was so much fun to watch - complete with the American anthem, furry mascot, feisty parents and the girls just going for it. It was a real nail biter game but in the end the"Mustangs" won! After this as the weather was still pretty ******, we had to miss out on the Christmas lights drive. The ...
... I ate a lovely dinner at one of my favourite café chains called Panera Bread. I had the tomato soup and a grilled cheese…it was as always delicious!!! I walked around and explored a little more and then relaxed in the hotel because I was in desperate need of a good night sleep after the last 48 hours running on fumes. It was wonderful being in a comfortable, king sized bed after sleeping on a dorm mattress for weeks.
The next day I ...
... paying more than $60 in tolls altogether, and I made a promise to myself to avoid the toll-roads on my way from New Hampshire to Texas, even though that particular route was a little longer. It wasn't something I needed to worry about for several days though, as my time at the retreat took place over a long weekend. As soon as I arrived in New Hampshire I got lost trying to locate the retreat, which was hidden away in a forested area secured by several miles of unpaved winding ...
... looking at someone - how many younger and older siblings he had, and whether these were brothers or sisters. To demonstrate, I turned to a black girl whose straight hair fell to the back of her blue dress. In what seemed like the perfect opening line, I tried to guess her siblings.
My guess was way off. Jessie and the Johnnies laughed at me. Nevertheless, the girl and I got along fairly well. I told her: "I don't ...

I had driven in this nasty storm a few hours earlier, and the sheer wind force was certainly no joke. The news called for flash floods, but I'd made it home before things got bad. Although I'm not sure many people would call this a "home." The truth is that I've been ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Hotel at Cross Keys Baltimore
I stayed at the Radisson (Cross Key) in Baltimore in July of 2005. I found the hotel to be pleasant enough. My room was clean. The beds were comfortable - and there were plenty of blankets and towels.
Okay, but won't stay again.
The hotel is average, the junior suite was okay, not great. The hotel is renovating some rooms, but still has a long way to go. I loved the area though, off the beaten track on Falls Road, easy access to I83, Starbucks, Whole Foods and Smith & Hawken north on Falls Road in a renovated mill (very nice). Neat area to explore on foot if the weather was better, beautiful homes, however it was extremely humid with thunderstorms; not a good time for a leisurely stroll outside. We travel to Baltimore a lot due to son in college there. We tried this area after many times at Inner Harbor and Fells Point. Honestly....will go back to Inner Harbor next time! This just wasn't worth visiting again.
Not so bad
For the price that you pay it's not a bad hotel. It had everything I needed, including a gym. The bed was comfortable and room quite 'roomie'. The bathroom was clean, though the toilet tissue holder made it impossible to use (had to take the roll off myself).
On the downside...the cleaning service took a long time. I was gone all morning and most of the early afternoon and they still hadn't arrived. I was all set to hang out in my room when they knocked on the door. I couldn't be bothered.
Free parking was great, didn't use the shuttle service but could guess it'd be handy.
This is a decent hotel in a decent spot (love the ability to shop).
My wife and I stayed at the Radisson at Cross Keys for two nights, December 10 and 11, 2004. We found the staff to be extremely pleasant and welcoming. The two people at the front desk at check-in were very personable and helpful. Our room on the fourth floor was well-appointed and clean. The bedroom was spacious and nicely furnished. The bathroom was small, but that was a minor point. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant. The food was good, but was a little on the costly side. Cocktails can be especially costly -- $10.50 for an ordinary manhattan. Each time we encountered a hotel employee we were greeted and almost always asked if everything was all right. As we were leaving, everyone wished us well. Even the person sweeping the outside walkway wished us a safe trip home and said that she hoped we had a Merry Christmas. At the time I booked the room, the best rate I could get was $115 per night. Later, I went back to the Radisson website and noticed a senior citizens rate (for those 50 and older) for $85. I called the Radisson reservation number and they gave me the reduced rate. This reduced rate also promised an upgrade to the best room available at the time of check in. When I requested the upgrade, the desk clerk said she would be happy to check to see what was available and then gave me the choice of several rooms. Not knowing the difference in the rooms, she suggested a king room on the fourth floor. The free parking and shuttle service is a huge bonus. We will definitely stay here again.
My husband and I stayed at this hotel from 10/21-10/25 with our two children 4 and 2 months. The service was great all of the employees of the hotel were very helpful and attentive. They all seemed to want to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The maid service even asked us if there was anything extra she could do for us. The room was huge King bed with pull out sofa, mini bar, microwave and fridge. We also requested a crib which was delivered to our room within 5 min. of our arrival to our room. The location was great in an upscale and private community...when pulling into the grounds you would never even know a hotel was there. The shower drain was very slow but the maid had it fixed that same day. When initially turning on the air conditioning it was loud but the noise went away. The free parking garage was also a nice touch...this was a very quite and cozy hotel. Within 5-6min of downtown inner harbor and Towson both of which are great locations to find restraunts.
The location of our six night stay in Baltimore was determined by the site of conference that we were attending.
My son and I stayed here for two nights this past week on a successful Priceline bid. While the hotel seems to have been renovated, I can't say our stay was without problems. However, I will say that there was no attitude problem with the staff; they were all eager to please and make things 'right'.
I came to Baltimore in hopes of combining some pleasure and some business. Someone had mentioned this hotel as someplace that is a little back from the inner city, some quaint shops and easy to get to. I was also looking at a facility to have a large business charity meeting.
Perfect hotel for Johns Hopkins
I had to spend some time in Baltimore to take my child to Johns Hopkins for major surgery. I cannot tell you how gracious the staff were and how comfortable and cheerful my accommodations were. This was an extremely stressful time for my family, and the hotel staff were so sensitive to our needs. We even had a complimentary shuttle to and from the children's center. I learned that the hotel will be undergoing renovations soon, which is nice. The location was perfect and very safe, with some great shops. Thank you, Radisson. I hope when we return it will be for leisure.
