I recently spent about 48 hours in Baltimore for a whirlwind tour of the city’s historic sites. My home-away-from-home for the trip was the Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott – Baltimore Inner Harbor. Despite its incredibly long and complicated name, this hotel is one I’d recommend for families, couples and business travelers headed to Baltimore. What makes the Fairfield so great?
The Marriott Philadelphia Hotel at the airport is a wonderful hotel. The room was large and clean, and the bed was very comfortable. I made use of the swimming pool which was actually a very narrow lap pool; at first I found this strange, but then I realized that the arrangement of the pool made it less likely that there would be a bunch of kids in it, so that was nice. The exercise room was next door – you could watch people exercise as you swam.
Considering this hotel was practically on a runway, the hotel room was incredibly quiet. I don’t think I heard any planes, really.
I wish I could comment on the food at the hotel, but I didn’t eat anywhere. There was a large room service menu though! I ordered a glass of wine through room service, and it arrived in less than 15 minutes, which I found impressive.
Check-in was very professional and a real breeze, as was check-out. After checking out, I just went to the second floor and walked over to my airport terminal! It was really easy.
I don’t think this hotel is very close to anything touristy, but it’s perfect for business people who are needed a high quality hotel that’s very close to the airport. I would definitely stay here again.
