I've delayed writing a review on this hotel because I'm conflicted. On one hand, we got a great deal on our stay here thanks to the efforts of VTer Hexepatty. On the other hand, there were some disappointing aspects to our stay.
OK, the good stuff first. The rooms were very large and had kitchen facilities, making them ideal for long-term stays. The staff was very friendly and eager to help. And the place is very centrally located, just a couple of blocks from Mount Vernon and about a 15 minute walk from the Inner Harbor.
The negative parts: The room had mildew (though the staff tried very hard to cover up the "aroma" with air fresheners). The plumbing had some serious issues: one day, the water was EXTREMELY hot (further complicating matters was the fact that our sink's "cold" faucet was actually the HOT faucet!) then there was no hot water at all the next day (we were told that the City "Hot Water Main" broke... riiiiiiight...). Finally, breakfast was not served because "the chef didn't show up." (though the staff did point us to a nice breakfast deli around the corner)
Unique Quality: - Centrally located on a quiet side street
- Large rooms with cooking facilities
- AAA discounts offered
Directions: From the Inner Harbor, walk up Charles Street until you reach Pleasant Street. Turn right on East Pleasant Street. Hotel will be on your left.
There is no real surplus of inexpensive lodging downtown, this was about the cheapest. It was very nice, better than I’m used to. Had a kitchen with it, with dishes, sink, stove and a big fridge. Living room area had a table with local Baltimore info and a couch. Cable tv.
Came with nice towels and baby soaps and shampoos. Staff was excellent. Only problem was the last day after a 4-day stay there, there was no hot water in the shower. No one else had any either.
Directions: off St Charles

Within walking distance to the Inner Harbour, Mt. Vernon and many restaurants TREMONT PARK HOTEL is one of three Tremont hotels in Baltimore. Hans and I were just thrilled when we saw our suite on the 12th floor ( only the pent house was higher ). Cool or what!!!
Our suite had a living room with TV and separate bedroom area with two queen beds and another TV. The Full Bathroom had a hairdryer. Also available was an iron & ironing board. Full kitchen contained refrigerator, microwave oven, range top, coffee maker (with coffee supplies ), toaster, cooking utensils and tableware. Next to the kitchen was a small dining table. Also in the living room area was a desk. Unbelievable!!!
Valet Parking is available with in/out privileges. We paid $18.00 a day. OUCH!
This is the hotel that the glorious 'Hexepatty' arranged for everyone during Baltoberfest! (Thanks again Patty!). The location is central; not too close to the Inner Harbor very close to Mount Vernon.
Nice rooms, decent rates.
The Tremont Park Hotel hosted a group of VTers during Baltoberfest 2006. I found it to be comfortable & clean, nothing terribly fancy but a good buy for the buck. Their rooms are, in fact, suites. If you're planning a long stay, especially for work, you'll find their kitchens quite convenient. My studio was a little small - I hear the one & two bedroom suites are quite large.
This hotel is located right off Charles Street. There's not a whole lot to do right in that area, but you're within walking distance of the Inner Harbor and Mount Vernon, and Fells Point is a short cab ride away. If you're looking for quiet, you'll probably find a home at the Tremont Park.
The only problem we had was the water: there was no hot water for much of our stay. According to the hotel, there was a water main break in the area. Hope they were able to take care of the situation.
Directions: Right off Charles St.
Thanks to lovely Patty (Hexepatty), we were able to get a group reservation at the Tremont Park for a good part of the VT crew for BaltOberfest which was great because there always seemed to be a VTer or two hanging around the lobby and it made it more economical to get taxis to and from events.
There are three Tremont's in Baltimore, so make sure you are looking at the right one.
Unique Quality: The Tremont Park is a suite hotel with a choice of either a studio or one bedroom and the rooms are all very large, those with the 1 bedroom suites were especially pleased with the size of their rooms. Just like in apartments, the studios have the bed in the main part of the room, the one bedroom has a separate bedroom. Both studios and 1 bedrooms have a kitchen with a microwave, refrigerator, range (no oven), coffee maker and toaster and comes with dishes and utensils, the one bedrooms also have a table. Both room types have a couch, the studio's had a pull out bed. There's also an ironing board/iron and a terry cloth bathrobe.
The bathroom had a hair dryer, usual toiletries (shampoo, soap, lotion) and fairly thick towels but the only complaint I have about the hotel is that the water in the shower was really hard to regulate and one out of the three nights I didn't have any hot water and others in our group had no hot water at all!
There were cookies and punch in the lobby every afternoon and several in our group report that they had continental breakfast but when we asked at the front desk they said that they didn't always serve it and didn't advertise it. On weekdays, you can get a complimentary copy of USA Today delivered to your room.
Directions: The Tremont Park is located about a 15 minute walk away from the Inner Harbor in the Mount Vernon neighborhood right off Charles St.
This place is great! Within walking distance of the Inner Harbor and every bar and restaurant that you'd ever need.
Unique Quality: I liked the way the rooms are laid out. A kitchen and private bathroom, along with the living room/bedroom.
This hotel isn't bad. In fact, my room was quite nice and even had a kitchen. However, my showers were ice cold. I first complained to the front desk and was told later the problem had been corrected. It hadn't. I then went to the room with the maintenence guy who let the water run for 3 minutes then looked at me dumbfounded and said "I swear, this was just hot a few minutes ago" He the jiggled the handle in several directions and the water eventually got hot. Sadly, when I tried I didn't have his magic touch. brrrrrr
Unique Quality: they make cookies for guest in the lobby.
I have not been to this hotel
This is one of three Tremont hotels in Baltimore. This looks like it would be within walking distance of the harbor, but IMHO staying right on the harbor would be better.
Unique Quality: They offer a number of packages including:
Park Suite for this weekend (9/18/2004) would be $119.00
Studio with living and bedroom area combined. 1 Queen size bed with pull-out sleeper sofa in sitting area. Color TV, Hairdryer, Iron/Ironing board, Data ports, Voice mail. Full kitchen includes coffee maker, range top, microwave, refrigerator, toaster, sink, utensils and tableware. Full bath.
Special Rate Includes:
*Deluxe Continental Breakfast
*Nightly Turndown Service
*10% Discount Card valid for Celebrities Lounge or 8 East Restaurant
**This package does not include parking or taxes
In addition to awesome events planned by our wonderful hosts, I would like to do the following (in no particular order, but this may work):
*Flea Market (suggested by Ellen)
*Baseball Legends/Babe Ruth Birthplace
*American Visionary Art Museum
*...and catch up with Frank's walking tour before the Crabfest
I am staying at the Tremont Park Hotel. Can someone suggest transportation to each of these places?
Thanks, and see you Friday!!
You can walk to Baseball legends/the Babe birthplace from your hotel.
The AVAM museum is on the way to LP Steamers. Neither LP Steamers or Patterson Pk flea mkt are walking distance. If you get a day pass for the water taxi ($8), you can use it to get to AVAM and LP Steamers. Plus, for Patterson Park, you can get off at the Canton/Captian James Landing stop and have maybe a 10-15 minute walk to the park. (The flea mkt will be on the Baltimore St and Patterson Park Aves entrance to the park, but walking through the park is nice, and you get to see real live life in Baltimore...and loads of dogs!)
Hope this helps and see you on Friday!
Thanks Ellen! See you tomorrow...
