Historical Traveller Reviews of Radisson Plaza Lord Baltimore Hotel

Not Recommended

from JackPo21
Although the hotel is located near the Inner Harbor, I would look elsewhere. The staff was very nice and courteous however we had problems with the valet parking staff. The hotel only offers valet parking and it costs $20 per day....somewhat outrageous for a city the size of Baltimore. I wrote an email to the hotel after our stay complimenting the check in staff but complaining about the long delays, rude behavior, and high cost of the valet parking and he reimbursed me the parking fees. At least they are responsive.

What an aweful hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel is the pits. I will list the positive and then then the negatives to make this easy to read:


-Nice lobby


- Old rooms, aweful sagging bed, noisy rooms
- Dirty rooms
- Amenities in room not replenished
- Windows appear to be made of paper, can hear EVERYTHING from the outside (and I was on the 15th floor)
- Cracked bathtub
- Horrible linens
- Service non-existant
- Food, was given a croissant at breakfast with green furry mould on the bottom of it, (server did not care)
- Finally, on the last morning I was at the hotel I went to open the blinds to only have the whole set of blinds come away from the ceiling and land on my head. At checkout when I explaiend this there was not even an attept to say sorry or apologise in any way.

I have stayed at Radissons before but this hotel would even make a Red Roof Inn look luxury, it truly is one of the worst hotels I have stayed at and I would advise against staying at it unless you really want to experience a terrible hotel. Radisson has a 100% satifaction guarantee, believe me, it is just words, no service behind it.

Major Power Outtage

from A TripAdvisor Member
There was a MAJOR power failure because of an underground fire in Baltimore. The hotel staff and manager struggled but managed to maintane acceptable levels of guest service. The hotels emergency generator DID power 2 elevators and many lights (I don't know what the other attendies are talking about). I watched one of the Hotel engineers reroute power so we could still do a Power Point presentation!! As a "survivor " of the outtage in the NorthEast a few years back this was handled well.

Avoid at all cost!!!!

from Docsam
Was there from 9/19 to 9/25 on a training conference with 70 others and could not to leave for another hotel in town. All the other attendees had similar complaints to mine. The hotel is in bad need of renovation. The rooms are run down with holes in the wall, paint peeling and appliances not working and that was with the complimentary upgrade to the concierge level! Response to a power cut that lasted from 4am to 3pm was terrible. No electricity, water, phone or elevators functionning for all that time. Many emergency stairs were locked which is a fire violation. Employees could not answer the simplest of questions and guests were left to fend on their own. It is a miracle no one got hurt as far as I know. Hotel manager should be fired for this lack of preparedness planning and for this dismal response to an emergency.
Finally the location is TERRIBLE, just 2 blocks from 5 or 6 strip joints including Hustler. Women in our group never went out alone after dark. Even myself, could not walk out at night without getting offers such as "Hi honey, wanna buy my love?" I guess if you like that type of scene....you should check it out.
Anyway, I love staying in Radissons in general but would never go back to that one again!

m trying to Sleep!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Not the greatest place. Our Co. put us here numerously and all the time we get put in these rooms that when you open your shades you see directly across at another room!!! the walls are paper thin. Ether someone is getting a massage or there are honeymooners next to me everytime I stayed. I think this place has it's historical values that's why they still have the cobbled road at the entrance. Be careful not to slip in the Winter or if it rains. My suggestion...stay across at the Omni which we do now!!!


from A TripAdvisor Member
I was attending a training conference during 9-13 Aug and had the misfortune to stay at this hotel. I was stuck here along with the other attendees because our company has a contract with the hotel so we were given no per diem for lodging. When I walked in and looked at the lobby, I thought it was going to be nice. I was thoroughly disappointed when I arrived in my room. There was black thick dust coming out of the light sockets and air conditioning controls. The ceiling was buckling from water damage. One out 3 wash cloths were stained. I was miserable. I walked across the street to CVS and bought my own wash cloth. I didn't bother to complain because all the other attendees had the same complaint. I will never stay at this hotel again. I agree with the previous comments that it is very noisy. Every time I attempted to get settled for the evening, there were siren blasts throughout the night. Don't waste your time. I agree management and upkept of this hotel needs to be investigated.

close, but no cigar!

from A TripAdvisor Member
When I arrived my room was given to someone else. I was given another room. I had to constantly ask the maid for things that should have been in the bathroom already. To top it off I flew into Balitmore and then took a taxi. When I checked my Hotel Bill on the plane. I noticed that they had charge me $75 for parking! I didn't even have a car??? This was in May. We are now in August and I am still trying to recuperate my money.
The area was pretty noisy when it was time to get some shut eye. (constant sirens from fire trucks and ambulances)

What a nightmare!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We saw this hotel on the internet and it appealed
to us because of the historic nature and design
of the building. What a disappointment!!! After
travelling all day, we arrived late at night and was
told their computer deleted many reservations and
they didn't have a room for us. We made these
reservations several months ago and we were
extremely upset. They found a room for us near
the airport, several miles away. Since we didn't
rent a car (the Lord Baltimore is walking distance
to the inner harbor and all the attractions), we were
stranded away from everything. They found us a
room the following day but our first day of vacation
was totally ruined. Radisson should investigate the
management of this hotel.

Charming 30s-era hotel with great location

from Peachyswan
I stayed at the Lord Baltimore on an overnight business trip at the end of May 2004. It is located only a few blocks from the Inner Harbor, which was ideal. The hotel was built in the late 20s and in the lobby, they were playing 30s/40s-era music. Since most hotels are fairly generic these days, this was a pleasant surprise.

Due to a lack of regular rooms, I ended up on the plaza level, which provided free snacks/drinks before dinner and free breakfast. The guest room itself was clean, very comfortable and nicely decorated. Even the hotel information channel on the TV played 30s/40s music! Some may think the Lord B. is a little past its prime, but I loved it. I would love to return for a longer stay to explore the city.

Loved the location

from SmilingOwl
We took the kids to the aquarium at the inner harbor and this was the hotel we arrived at via Priceline. We put in a bid for $55 and they accepted. For this price it was a great bargain. I would have been a bit dismayed had I have paid a higher rate. The hotel does not have a pool which dissappointed the kids.

What the hotel does offer is a great location!

Also, we asked the valet about self park and were directed to a parking garage about a block away. Parking the car ourselves was $15 for a 24 hour period as opposed to their $28 fee. The difference is we parked and walked everywhere. If you need to have the car parked and re-parked, Valet may be better.

This is a great hotel for those traveling on a budget and getting a great deal! Try Priceline.com or hotwire.com before booking directly however. I've used both services numerous times and have always been appreciative of the bargains.


Top Local Tips for Baltimore

Baltimore is not for the visually impaired The public transportation (taxis) do not have much leg room to begin with, getting an assist animal in the car is hardly possible. At Inner Harbor there are a lot of steps in and out of the mall and food court which could pose a problem for the the elderly and wheelchair bound. Also, there are no barriers between the walkways and the water, this could be very dangerous if someone takes a wrong turn.

Take The Duck City Tour Take this tour right after you check it. It takes you around the harbor AND thruough the city. You can jot down where you want to go/see later

Get out and walk... If you're anywhere near the Inner Harbor area, just get out and walk. Fell's Point and Canton are not too far away, neither is Federal Hill or Locust Pointe. It's a great city with lots of history and the best way to see it is on foot! Also, don't miss Fort McHenry - it will make you feel proud of this country.
