Trip Advisor An historic jem!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Oct 19, 2014 by: vickie d from 
The Inn is historic and offers a lot of unique architecture. The staff is polite and helpful. It is located in the middle of everything. Water taxis are just across the street, there are always cabs by the inn and the inn itself offers a free shuttle to the attractions close by. A lot of great places to eat right by the inn so you can park your car and go it on foot. What you need to know is don't pay the money for the Inns breakfast not worth even close to the price go across the street to eat. Second park your own car in the parking garage located close by soooo much cheaper than valet service don't park on the street too much crazy partying at night. when you book at the Inn each room is different but the same price so ask for one with a refrig avoid rooms that overlook the street atleast on weekends the party scene is like new Orleans and goes on till 230 am impossible to sleep. Gregory M Longus Jr our shuttle driver was excellent and so was Koury at the front desk. If you have AAA use it ,makes it cheaper. The aquarium was disappointment and done in 2 hours not worth the cash. don't bring growlers from out of state they can't fill them. Best burgers and crab cake sandwich at koopers right by the inn. Brick oven pizza up the street was good. Nice seafood at Rip Tide also up the street. Nothing is cheap at the harbor!!

This hotel is in a great location near the harbor. The rooms are clean and there is free WiFi that is quite fast for a freebie, which is always a good thing. I realize that there are restrictions on the types of modifications they probably allow in this neighborhood, and I'm sure that some people like the "old world charm" of this property. But the lobby is dark and dated, as are the rooms. The bed and pillows were lumpy and uncomfortable. The worst part is that some of the hotel is on top of a karaoke bar that is open until 1:30 am. My room was directly above it and, although the staff tried to move me (thank you!), there were no rooms far enough away from the bar to make it worthwhile. The bass shook the room and - well, let's say many "singers" are far from it. A friend was staying on the third floor and he said he could even hear and feel it in his room. My bottom line is that if you want a quiet, comfortable stay, look elsewhere.

The location was perfect. You could walk to restaurants and shops; however, if you were looking for a good night's sleep - forget it. The music from the nearby bars kept us up until after 2AM. Breakfast buffet was included in our stay - very disappointing - the scrambled eggs and bacon were cold. The staff was friendly and very helpful in recommending restaurants for lunch and dinner.

Trip Advisor Great location and staff

The staff at "The Admiral" are always helpful and friendly. We've stayed for our honeymoon and a couple months later. There is always something to do in Fells Point and the staff is great at pointing out activities and good local food stops. We will be returning again in the near future!

Trip Advisor Excellent stay!

My wife and I traveled to Baltimore for some Johns Hopkins appointments and stayed here for a couple of nights. We are very happy with our choice. They have a Johns Hopkins rate which includes free valet parking and complimentary breakfast. In addition, they have a shuttle to and from JHU. With the hotel being right in the middle of Fells Point with plenty of things to do (restaurants, shops, bars, etc...), there was no need for us to ask for our car at any point. The hotel layout is not your traditional stale lobby and straight door-lined hallways. The lobby is filled with history of Fells Point and Baltimore. Once off the elevator, we had to navigate different twists and turns, along with stairs, to get to our room. Each room is named after an important figure in Baltimore history, with a framed narrative next to each door telling you who that person is. The room was clean and spacious. It overlooked the cobblestone street below and we didn't find it to be noisy (we had the fan on high in our room, which probably drowned out some noise coming from below). The bathroom was pretty small, but we didn't spend a lot of time in there, so no concerns for us. The staff was great. They welcomed us each time we entered the hotel and helped us with any questions we had. Each time we came in, they made sure the elevator door opened up for us (they must have a button behind the desk). The shuttle service was convenient (though it took a bit to pick us up from the hospital - traffic - but the staff was attentive and they texted me immediately to let me know the driver's status). Valet was a breeze. The tavern, in the basement, was small and quaint. We enjoyed some drinks during happy hour and the bartender had many good stories about the history of Baltimore and the surrounding areas. All in all, the next time we come down, we'll make it a point to stay here again! Great location, great room, and great staff!
