Flew into DC and spent two nights at Colin's house in Bel Aire. We went to a couple of the local bars, played kick ball, had drinks with his friends. Sara Marie was randomly there one night too. Adam met at Colin's place Friday morning and we left for ...
... I spent the remainder of my day here, swimming, going down water slides and riding water rides. After the sun went down I enjoyed the more moderate, less intense rides that Hershey Park has to offer, and topped the day off with a slow, tranquil ride on the ferris wheel, where I gazed upon the entirety of the moonlit park with a nostalgia that cannot be matched. I stayed in the park until staff started to herd people out, at which point I visited Chocolate World, located at ...

Flying with The Chang was an interesting experience, he crosses himself on take off and pulls the handbrake on landing. It was a bit of a bumpy trip coming in to LAX.
The trip seemed to take forever, the only flight that wasn't delayed was the final leg (Chicago - Baltimore). The LA - Chicago connection cut it real fine, especially because I had to deal with a knob of a guy at immigration and Chang let his bag do a couple ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Tremont Suites Hotel and Grand Historic Venue Baltimore
Great Hotel if you don't mind the walk to the Harbor...
We had a wonderful time at the Harbor, this is a great place to stay if you don't mind the walk. The hotel was clean and the staff was very nice. I wouldn't recommend it though if you want to be close to the Harbor. It's about a 10 minute walk, but we didn't mind! We are also 25, so to us it was no big deal. Great rooms, great rates, and great service!!
A friend had stayed at the Tremont Plaza this past summer and thought it was very nice. I was planning a two night stay for 12/26 and 12/27.
I really enjpyed my stay!
I love to staying her to get away from reality. The beds are very comfortable, everything was clean, spacious and quiet. he furniture was modern. The bar/restaurant has a nice atmosphere. My only complaint was that room service did not stay open as late as advertised.
OK, but would not stay there again
Unfortunately, our experience last weekend was not good at Tremont Plaza. We had NO HEAT in the room and the restaurant was disgusting.Otherwise, it is in a pretty good location. The staff was relatively pleasant but not overly accomodating. The decor was decent.
I probably would not stay there again, though.
I conducted an extensive search to find the best hotel that would offer a government/military rate for a conference we were attending in the Baltimore area. This hotel was very convenient to Inner Harbor shops and night life, provided suites with kitchen type facilities and I found that they don't put their gov/mil discount customers in less desirable rooms. A government employee or military member could wind up with any suite in the place for the current government rate (it's better to call ahead and request the type suite/view you prefer). Another person in our party had already booked a 20 person group into a Hilton Garden Inn but we decided to give the Tremont Plaza a try instead. I was in suite 3602 located on the northeast corner of the 36th floor and I must say that the view was fantastic, especially out my bedroom window and the suite was HUGE! After our stay everyone who stayed there OVERWHELMINGLY APPROVED and would go back to stay there again in a heartbeat! One thing I read about the hotel that wasn't true: Two different reports that 30th and above floors are "concierge" floors and include complimentary breakfast and cocktails turned out to be false, I asked about that and no one knew what I was talking about. All of the staff we spoke with was very knowledgeable concerning restaurants, night life and other things to do in Baltimore. Myself and one other person in the conference arrived too early on a Sunday to check in but Donna at the front desk had us fill out the paperwork so that when we came back from lunch we could just get our key from the desk. She even arranged to keep our bags and have the valet park the car so we could go get a bite and catch some football. The biggest disappointment was the hotel's restaurant. The food was reasonably good although it was fairly expensive and the breakfast menu was somewhat limited. Whenever I was there or observed it from the bar area they seemed under staffed. This wasn't such a big deal during our Dinner because there wasn't very many folks there that night. During breakfast there was only one sever for the entire restaurant (guessing about 16 tables) and the hostess had to jump in and help out (everyone at our table tipped her rather than the server for her help) because our server just couldn't get to us. I also noticed that neither of the servers (dinner or breakfast) seemed to speak english very well. These shortcomings however were easily overcome by the myriad of restaurants within walking distance to the hotel. We also found out that no restaurant in Baltimore seems to be willing to separate the check. The hotel restaurant only requests that you let them know before you order if you would like separate checks. Overall a large group of veteran travelers were EXTREMELY pleased with our experience at the Tremont Plaza and we are all eagerly looking forward to our next trip to Baltimore so we can stay there again. A very special thanks to Gretchen (sales manager) for all her help getting us set up, did I mention that the staff there was fantastic?!?!?!?!.
The letter that I have sent to the manager of the hotel (three times with no response) says it all:
The Tremont Plaza Rocks!
My husband, 2 children and myself stayed at the Tremont Plaza Hotel the weekend of August 22, 2003 and had a wonderful time. The staff was extremely helpful and informed about restaurants in the area, sightseeing, etc. The room, which was a 2 bedroom suite was spacious, very clean and attractive. We did not eat at the restaurant but the deli was well stocked. The Inner Harbour is within walking distance-just a few blocks downhill. The Tremont has a shuttle service available if you don't feel like walking back. The valet parking is at a reasonable fee and they move quickly. I would have to say I highly recommend the Tremont Plaza for families and business individuals.
2 Thumbs up for the Tremont Plaza
Our family loved this hotel. The suites are well appointed and have plenty of space for a family of five. We had a great view from the 37th floor. We walked to all the attractions - and this was with a six year old in tow. The deli that is part of the hotel complex is well stocked.
For economical meals use the food court at the Callery at Harbour Place and pick up food at the Lexington Market (this market refelcts the neighborhoods that its serving and is priced accordingly). The staff is not particularly knowledgable and though there is a concierge desk noone was in attendance while we were there.
The best in baltimore
This was my 8th trip to Baltimore in the past 4 years, staying in 6 different hotels. The Tremont Plaza has been the best experience so far. The rooms (suites) are impeccably clean, quite spacious and are an exceptional value. Although I ate only in the deli and did not get to eat in any of the other restaurants the menus were diverse and anyone would be hardpressed to find something that does not appeal to them. The staff was very helpful and friendly, despite an overwhelming number of guests during my stay. If you are planning a trip to Baltimore this is the place to stay.
The Tremont Plaza is a beautiful old hotel that appears to have been recently renovated head to toe. The staff was very accommodating and pleasant. (Brought us extra towels at 11 pm!) Although the hotel had the feel of an expensive NYC hotel, it isn't the least bit stuffy. The rooms are all suites as far as we could tell (and we had a bundle of them since we were travelling with a sports team). We had two suite types: one with bedroom with double/queen bed and TV, living room with sleeper (very comfortable) and TV, dining room, kitchen, bath, and the other suite type with two dble/queen beds with TV, walkin closet, bath, kitchen. The furniture was wonderfully comfortable and fabrics and wallcoverings selected were high quality and nicely coordinated. The air conditioning/heating was quiet and efficient and controlled by a wall thermostat. There is a full service deli on the ground floor - open til 10pm - that cuts meats to make sandwiches on a variety of breads. They carry salads, ice cream, soda, juices, beer, breakfast foods (make eggs, bacon etc til 11 am). This is a real find since there was not much else open immediately around the hotel.Tugs Restaurant on 2nd floor served delicious lunch (crab cake with berries and mixed greens were great). Prices $9 for burger and fries. Autographed photos of celebrities line the walls. It's located about 10-15 minute walk (7 blocks) uphill from the Inner Harbor. A cab from Harbor runs about $4 for those who don't want the walk up hill!! There isn't much around the Tremont in terms of restaurants that we could tell. Eateries abound at the Harbor.
