The front desk staff I interacted with were very friendly and helpful. My room was clean and comfortable. All the public areas I saw were clean. Keurig coffee makers with pods in each room. Of course,...

I wanted to give this hotel five stars but just couldn't do it honestly. I wish that 4.5 were a possible rating. To start with the good, our room was large, well furnished, and very clean. We had a full bath with plenty of hot water. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was above average with plenty of...

The front desk personnel were friendly and accommodating. They seem to work as a team. I have stayed at many Holiday Inns, however, this location has exemplary employees. The shuttle service to Johns Hopkins hospital was a real plus. All drivers were very helpful. Tina and Erika were extremely pleasant and caring. Their genuine concern was really appreciated. I highly...
