    Historical Traveler Reviews Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore

    Elegant English hotel

    from

    I stayed at the Harbor Court almost a week before Xmas. It was a wonderful experience in every way. Beautifully decorated and elegant with a five story Christmas tree as well as a stately Menorah. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They responded to my special requests and made my stay wonderful. I can't wait to go back.

    Clothes gone missing

    from

    What can I say? The hotel is gorgeous. I booked a room for my mother and sister who were in town for my birthday. They stayed two nights.

    Unfortunately, on the second night when my mother was getting ready for dinner she noticed that the blouse she was planning on wearing was missing. These things happen I guess. But two weeks later and the hotel still hadn't gotten back to us regarding the blouse. I've called them twice. Finally, head of security, returned my call but has thus far given me the run around saying that he interviewed the help and the blouse hasn't shown up. I know am waiting for the general manager to call. I am surprised and very disappointed in their response. I'm now recommending my guests stay at the Marriot Waterfront. No one there has yet reported anything missing.

    I had a different experience.

    from

    My wife and I stayed at the Harbor Court the weekend after Thanksgiving 2003. The Harbor Court is obviously a top-notch hotel and we were looking forward to staying here based upon the favorable TripAdvisor reviews that have been posted. I found what I considered a good rate via AAA ($170 per night) and booked the reservation. Upon check-in we were given a very nice room with a view of the adjacent brick building.

    OK, I thought, you pay a discounted rate and you don't get a room with a panoramic view. That, I can understand. But when the TV in the bathroom didn't work and upon dialing the front desk, I got a fast busy signal, that's when I started to get concerned. As it turned out, the in-bathroom TV was one of the older models and the hotel repairman fixed it by applying a comical fix - some "baseball-bat modulation" to it (i.e., he gave it a healthy slap). The TV's are being replaced with newer models, currently available, I would presume, in the non-AAA rate rooms. Never did get an explanation concerning the fast busy signal when pressing the "front desk" button on the phone but the hotel operator was accessible, polite, and very responsive. Valet parking is $24 a night and in-room high speed internet access is $12.95 per 24-hour service period. The concierge gave us inaccurate directions to a nearby restaurant and before we knew it, we were on the edges of a bad section of downtown. All in all, this was not the experience I had hoped for. If I ever come back this way, I might try the Marriott - or hope that a rich relation would have passed on so I can try a Harbor Court room with a higher rate.

    Absolutely Great

    from

    Came on a tight business schedule. Room, Staff, Food and Bar the best.

    Will stay again and you can't go wrong.

    One of the Best

    from

    We stayed at the Harbor Court (courtyard room) for 5 days over Labor Day this year. It was absolutely wonderful, attentive staff, helpful conciege, great valet. I could not get over how genuine and friendly everyone was. It was delightful time, we will definitely return. The best part...total quiet at night, no traffic noise, no hallway noise....perfect!

    Amazing

    from

    What a find! This hotel is perfect in every way. We stayed 2 nights.

    The service is top notch.

    Quiet oasis in the Inner Harbor

    from

    My family and I spent a long weekend here June 27-30, 2003 to see the Phillies play the Orioles at Camden Yards. The location is great; a 3-block walk to the stadium and the Inner Harbor is across the street.

    Harbor Court is lovely; you feel that you are miles away from everything, yet you are in the middle of it all. The decor was very nice, the rooms comfortable and quiet and the staff very courteous and helpful. If you like peaceful surroundings this is the place for you.

    It was a very crowded weekend in Baltimore, yet I was always glad to escape the crowd when I returned to Harbor Court. I actually felt like I was on vacation. I would recommend the Harbor Court to anyone who wants a little peace and quiet in the heart of the Inner Harbor.

    Overall Excellence

    from

    The first time I traveled to Baltimore for a business trip I researched all the hotels by the harbor. The Harbor Court always got mentioned in major newspaper, magazine, and tour book articles, many touting the famous people who had stayed there because of the extraordinary service. Once I stayed there, I found it to be true. From the moment I drove my rented car into the semi-hidden enchanted courtyard entrance, I encountered a friendly and helpful staff. The location on the west side of the harbor gave uncluttered views of the water from the rooms and restaurants regardless of the floor (compared to other hotels that require 10th floor or above). Additionally, because of the location very few tourists walk by, making the views almost spirtual because of the lack of noise. The two restaurants are among the best in the city, regardless that they are in a hotel. I work in New York City near the Waldorf Astoria and the Harbor Court has many of the same qualities that make it a world class establishment. What surprises me the most is that the Harbor Court got listed 12th in Baltimore area on tripadvisor. It's among the best hotels in the country, not just in Baltimore.

    Top notch

    from

    Harborcourt Hotel is the place to stay when in Baltimore. The friendliest most courteous staff and the cleanest rooms. The lounge is also very nice.

    Fantastic service all around

    from

    Turning up in 99 degrees heat for July 4th, we were very very pleasantly surprised to find a large well furnished room, great bathroom and gorgeous facilities. A very cosy bar that stayed open until we left (even though we were the last), swift and friendly service and prime location. Would return in a heartbeat.

She hadn't even said hello, or asked me how I'd been doing for the last four years. She simply handed me the baby. I took Simone into my arms and held her there awkwardly, still standing in the doorway. Up until this point I had exactly zero experience with babies. I knew nothing about them. What does it do?

    We then made our way out to 4305 Mainfield Avenue to check out the old neighborhood. Along the way we saw lots of examples of Baltimore row houses -- some quite nice, some really run down. It was kind of eerie seeing streets like Hartford ...
