... after several hours at the air port I made my way to down town Washington DC. It is a beautiful city, the cherry blossoms were just emerging filling the streets with the sweet scent of spring. The buildings are colonial and the streets are clean. I walked around to see the white house and the Washington monument. I took a train from the regal union station to Baltimore's more rugged Penn station where I met my oldest friend Phillip. For those of you who don't know he lives next to ...
... rent bikes since it was taking too long. Best decision of the day! We raced around to the Washington Monument (all covered up for maintenance), Arlington Cemetery (with JFK's grave), Lincoln Memorial, Martin Luther King memorial, FDR memorial (huge!), Jefferson Memorial (best!), the Smithsonian (Natural History Museum) and finally the Pentagon memorial. In our race to get back to meet Sammy and Bruno we narrowly missed our subway to catch the 2pm train ...
... on full-blast and sing as loud as I possibly could in order to escape the dangerous boredom of driving in Arizona. It was life-or-death here in the desert. Falling asleep at the wheel is a serious situation. When I first spotted the sign that marked my transition from Tennessee to Oklahoma, I rejoiced like I have never rejoiced before. It was only two more hours from this landmark and I would be at my cousin's house in Oklahoma City, where I could relax and recuperate from my ...
... first-base, four rows from the playing field, so close to the action that when a bat flew out of the hand of one left-handed batter, it was caught by a fan just in front of us. The ballpark felt so intimate that it was as though we were on the field with the players. Bob was in paradise, and for that one game, he was an Orioles fan, cheering a home run by Baltimore’s Matt Wieters and the defensive athleticism of their center fielder Adam Jones. Regrettably ...

But after a few years we both started getting on each other's nerves, and this eventually gave way to hurt feelings and, toward the end, isolation from each other and from the rest of the world. After five years our relationship had become a nightmare. We were constantly at each other's throats and it was mostly my own fault. As we became more and more disconnected from one another I became more and more paranoid and insecure about ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Home2 Suites by Hilton Baltimore Downtown
Not happy with it
My husband and I stayed at the Tremont Park hotel in Baltimore, Maryland for just one night in October. We were not very happy because neither the air conditioning nor the toilet were in working order. When we asked about the air conditioning we were told that it has been turned off due to the winter season. In fact the weather that weekend was rather warm for October. One front desk employee told us we could have a fan before being interrupted by another front desk employee who replied "if we have one". We never received one. We had to sleep with our window opened which faced a parking lot and some run down homes. We did not feel very safe. As for the toilet, it finally overflowed. Needless to say, we were happy to check out of our not so clean room.
Small hotel with character
I used to stay at this hotel on business trips. While you can find newer or more luxurious accoodations in Baltimore, I grew fond of this little hotel. The staff was friendly and accomodating. The cozy restaurant is always quiet and serves excellent dinners (good crab soup). The only negative experience I had pertained to some sort of night club down the street. When it let out at 2 am one night, the noise from the street woke me up.
Tremont Park and Tremont Plaza: two different hotels
I have searched for Tremont Park Hotel, but tripadvisor only displays Tremont Plaza Hotel. Both are in Baltimore, near one another, owned by the same company. But they are different places, FYI. We have chosen the Tremont Park about three times and really like it. It's smaller than the Plaza property, less amenities, more a boutique-type place, but it's charming and offers a free, very nice continental breakfast. Its suites can be on the small side, but its one bedrooms are quite large. The first time we stayed there, I'd reserved a suite for my husband and I and our son, but when we complained that it was too small for three, the hotel immediately and cheerfully moved us to a one-bedroom upgrade with their apologies.
The free shuttle serves both properties, and you can catch a ride into and out of the nearby area attractions. The front desk has always been very helpful and nice. A small coffee and pastry set-up is put in the lobby in the evenings, in lieu of turndown service they used to offer. The rooms are very clean, though could use some updating in the near future. We really enjoy the Tremont Park. The Plaza is a bit larger and fancier, but we haven't stayed there because we enjoy a breakfast buffet. Parking is in a fenced and locked lot behind the hotel, I think it's $17/night. You can sometimes find an open spot with a meter on the street in front, if you move your car or feed the meter by 8:00 a.m.. Definitely recommend the Tremont Park. Not a five-star, but a good value for a longer stay.
Older hotel, but generally well-maintained and very clean. Heating unit didn't work in first room we checked into; we were assigned another room and the unit worked fine. Not the best window view from the lower floors; request a room on a higher floor if you plan to stay. Housekeeping was excellent each day! ROOM WALLS ARE THIN; we heard our neighbors who lacked common courtesy into the wee hours of the morning. However, front desk receptionist was very apologetic and offered to switch our room the next night if it happened again. Hotel is about a 10-minute walk from Inner Harbor; very convenient. Caution: Do not opt for $18/day valet parking unless you anticipate having to leave and reenter the hotel between 12:00 a.m.-6:00 a.m. There is a much, much less expensive municipal garage just two blocks from the hotel.
Not too bad
My family and I stayed at this hotel while we were in Baltimore to see a Red Sox game. The hotel itself looked very clean, but all night all we could hear was mice running around in the ceiling and walls. We tried to ignore the sounds but it was very hard. Needless to say we did not get much sleep. There was no evidence of mice in the room, which made us feel better. The room also had a kitchen with all the equipment you needed to cook a meal, which is a great money saver. The only problem is there is not a grocery or convience store around. We walked for miles and found only a little store that had nothing and was in a very shady area. Even the locals could not tell you where the nearest store was located. The hotel had a nice continental Breakfast with muffins, fruit, cereal, coffee ect... There is also a restaurant and bar located on site which I thought was quite nice. You are not to far from Inner Harbor, it's about a 10 min walk, which is worth it to save money, this hotel is very resonable money wise compared to the hotels located in Inner Harbor, about $100.00 bucks a night cheaper!!!
Great Hotel, good price
We stayed at the Tremont Hotel in Baltimore for one night on our way to Florida. The staff was very friendly, efficient, and professional. Our room was a very nice size with a small kitchenette, a pull out sofa and a bedroom with a king size bed. It was clean and comfortable. We were traveling with our two children who are 6 and 9. We will definitely stay here again.
Good for the price
Traveled to this hotel recently (9/04) and stayed in a one bedroom suite. The size of the suite was more than adequate. There was a separate bedroom with 2 double beds along with a large living room and a kitchen with fridge/oven. The room is geared toward multiple night visitors but we enjoyed the openness of the room for the night. The room was clean.
The service at the hotel was accommodating and friendly - treat people how you want to be treated and it is usually returned in kind. We stayed on the 12th floor which is right under the penthouse - the view of the city was great. I really liked the fact that there were only four rooms on our floor (less traffic and noise) and we could open the windows in the bedroom! - nice change from the recycled air found in almost all hotels. In terms of being close to the Inner Harbor - it was about a 15 minute walk or $4.00 cab ride - not bad at all.
The only negative to our stay was the bathroom. I have stayed in both Tremont's in Balt and both times we have had problems with the bathroom. This time, the shower would cut out intermittently during showers - cold/hot/cold - a little annoying. But we survived (joke).
All in all - you will likely save some money staying here as opposed to a hotel right on the harbor, but it is a nice hotel for the price.
Worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Room very tatty, uncomfortable bed, flies in bathroom, air conditioning broken,.....
My family and I have stayed at this hotel in the past for my brothers wedding. Now, my wedding in over the summer and I wanted to have my guests stay at the Tremont due to the service we received before. This time they will not wave a two nigt minimum that they have in place. We are returning customers who will be using over 30 rooms. Is this a way to treat returning customers?
My family and I just stayed at this hotel this past weekend, and we all loved it very much. The level of professionalism displayed by the hotel employees, made things easy and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the kitchenette, with microwave and refridgerator that was in each room. The rooms themselves were very spacious. We felt that the food prices were a bit much, but coupled with the excellent servce and taste, we realized that it was worth the cost. The only thing I personally disliked was the bathtub and toilet areas, which need to be upgraded. I was expecting more from a hotel of this stature. The rest of the bathroom area was nice. All in all I would say that this is a must stay hotel.
