Tired or retired...Posted Mar 28, 2013 on Hotels
When I arrived at Phoenix Risin' it took a awhile for the owner to respond to my bell. When she arrived, breathless from the third floor and hunched over her cane it took a while for her to gain enough composure to welcome me. She then invited me for a glass of wine and chatted a bit about the beautiful art that fills the shared spaces of this establishment. While my bedroom was clean and smelled fresh, the shared spaces of Phoenix Risin' were a bit too cluttered to feel comfortable to me and the carpet on the stairs needed vacuumed. My overall impression was that my hostess was not physically able to do all of the tasks that would have made her beautiful historic home shine. On the positive side, the neighborhood appeared safe and was within easy walking distance to MICA and Baltimore U. If you are looking for a safe place to sleep, this is adequate. If you book a B&B expecting to feel like a queen, book somewhere else.
Nice place with interesting host.Posted May 30, 2012 on Hotels
Overall a comfortable place. We were on the third floor and it was a bit stuffy there until we cranked up the AC. The carpet is a bit worn, and the house is older, but everything is very clean and the host is a lovely person with an interesting collection of African-American and Native American art. Definitely would recommend staying here instead of corporate hotels.

Phoenix Risin -- Nice B&B in "Charm City"Posted Oct 13, 2010 on Hotels
Nice, well-kept old townhouse with lots of interesting African-themed art and a low key innkeeper in a charming old neighborhood (a bit like Georgetown in D.C. or the West Village in NYC, but quieter) near a light rail station. We shared 1-1/2 bathrooms with one other couple.

Not impressedPosted Jul 30, 2007
Very awkward and uncomfortable. Room was lovely, location was great. Service was unavailable. Waited for an hour on the street for operator to return home and let us into the hotel. Preferred time for breakfast was asked, but no breakfast was prepared. Was not comfortable eating anything there anyways.
