... 3 of his friends for an all American night of "pre gaming" bar food and baseball. We watched the oriels vs red sox. It was really fun. Again I was amazed to see so many people on their on their phones. The girl beside me was on Facebook for the entire game. What was the point of going !? The night was some all American fun for sure. The next day I did the heritage walk around the city. I saw where the flag was made, where done war stuff happened and the such. It was so cold ! I ...
... the trash out; Tuesdays and Fridays are trash days, packed lunch for jill and i and set out on the half hour commute to work. I-95 saw the usual rush hour traffic. I reached for my cell phone to check for traffic update which quickly turned into the realization that i haven't had a phone for about two weeks now. The phone was sent back to Samsung for an LCD fix. This was initially disappointing since I had just purchased the phone couple of months ago and it ...
Well, the band is broken up. Temporarily. Will is now home with the mister, safe and sound and asleep in his own bed. They flew out from Baltimore this afternoon -- in order to make sure the trip was an all-around positive one, we opted for this plan as the turbo driving I'll be doing going home might be a little much for our young hero. But I do miss my travel pal already. It will ...

As I drove into Oklahoma City and searched for my Cousin's house, I realized what my dream in Pennsylvania had truly meant: the house was my world, and the apartment my personal sanctuary. My evil neighbor was not really evil - he was just an aspect of myself that desired I know and see the truth. The secret caverns ...
... and all the pots and pans clamoring outside. I always hated celebrations. I got up and went to crank the TV to full blast so I could drown out the sound of everyone else's happiness. Why are they so happy anyway? 2011 was awful, why do they think this year will be any different? Annoyed at my own cynicism, I tapped the remote control's channel button a few times. After a brief couple pops of horizontal static fuzz, the TV shifted to a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Renaissance Harborplace Hotel Baltimore
My family and I stayed here in August 2003 for a national convention at the nearby convention center. At a Priceline rate of $85, this hotel was superb. Most comfortable hotel beds I have experienced. Very courteous staff. Excellent location in downtown Baltimore. Highly recommend, especially if you get a good rate on Priceline.
My wife and I needed a close-in getaway for our 1st anniversary. I had never been to the inner harbor, so we chose the Renaissance pretty much at random. I reserved a king room away from the waterfront. At check-in, the desk clerk gave us a free upgrade to a waterfront SUITE when informed of the purpose of our stay. We also received a coupon for a complimentary breakfast the next morning.
We stayed in this hotel in early May 2004.
Loved the Renaissance Inner Harbor
My husband and I (as well as my daughter and her family) stayed at the Ranaissance Inner Harbor 2-27 to 2-29 and loved it. Our rooms were clean, well-appointed and comfortable and the hotel is beautifully located BUT we must commend you on the staff...everyone, from the doorman (Marcus Bedford) who greeted us, to the desk to bell hops,chambermaids, waiters, hostesses/hosts...just wonderful! They are well-trained..couteous, greet you as they pass...they really made us feel well cared for. Thanks
Best of Baltimore
Luckily I made our reservation before I read any reviews otherwise the points made about noisy rooms, bad service, etc. would have put me off.
Our experience of this hotel didn't include any of these problems, we asked for a quiet room and we got just that, it was really comfortable and smart. The staff were always friendly and helpful. A terrific bonus is that the hotel is located in the same coplex as The Gallery shopping mall and it is wonderful. We had a great time, yep expensive, but it's not like you don't know this before you book. If you make it over to Baltimore try The Helmand restaurant, it is fabulous - excellent food, good service and great value, I assure you that you will love it!
We loved our stay here for a long weekend getaway. Our room offered a view of an interior courtyard, overlooking the indoor pool, and shopping arcade. A bonus: We could see if the pool was crowded (never).
Not too impressed
Fabulous hotel interior however came short for its guestrooms... unless you stayed in the presidential suite, I suppose. The price I paid for that room could have gotten me a suite at another Marriott location.
But I do recomment its Window restaurant where the breakfast was satisfying.
Just came back yesterday from Inner Harbor. The Renaissance Harborplace is a nice looking hotel and in a great spot however the noise leaves a lot to be desired. The walls between the rooms are paper thin; you can hear the conversations in the next room very easily. Security is nonexistent. There were people / children running and screaming around the halls until at least 3-4 am and then it quieted down. The front desk was no help. There was alot of undesirables in the hotel; you have to wonder it these people were guests! We felt if there was a better job of hotel personnel to actually see what goes on around the floors and make an effort to maintain some type of control; then maybe the stay may have been more enjoyable. Also beware of valet parking! The sign states $25 for overnight guests and when asking if this was per night or a one time fee; we were advised that it was a one time fee.
My husband and I chose a quick long get-away weekend so we could use up some of our Marriott offers. We stayed at this hotel because of the location and what it looked like on Marriott's web pages. Well, we were disappointed in this 12 floor hotel. We had a view of a parking garage and the streets were so noisy you could hear cars all night long. Ths staff was just average. The concierge was not very helpful. When we were leaving to go the Marriott Waterfront hotel for the next two nights, I asked her to call to see if we could check in early. She called the hotel and asked them if they had sold our the night before.
Great on the Fourth of July
We stayed at the Renaissance last year for the 4th of July and requested a view of the fireworks display. It was SPECTACULAR, they gave us a perfect room, we sat in our bathrobes and watched the show.
The staff was great, quick walk to the harbor shops (across the street), expensive but well worth the splurge.
