Reasonable rates. Pretty, older elegant building

Posted Sep 16, 2014
Pros: Affordable clean good breakfast parking garage accross st is $4 a day
Cons: Be better staffed for breakfast. Staff that was there were trying very hard and were very pleasant
Location: We walked to the harbor and great farmers market on Sunday morning. Toured the broom seltzer building and art studios. Few miles to Baltimore museum.
Pleasant front desk. Breakfast was good but ran out of coffee both days. Think the hotel was totally booked so may not have had enough staff

Mount Vernon Hotel

Posted Sep 15, 2014
Pros: Above
Cons: Physically move the hotel from current neighborhood.
Location: Lexington Market, Mount Vernon Square, MD Historical Society. Nipper on the roof.
The hotel was easily accessed from the Purple Line. Facilities were old but well-maintained, decor was eclectic but fun to look at. Room was clean and looked like there was a recent renovation. Plumbing worked very well. Good water pressure in the shower and the knobs were not falling off - unlike so many places today. The desk folks were friendly and helpful. They knew the area well and provided tips to make our walking safer and more direct. The Lexington Market is a few blocks away, awesome seafood. Would not head there after dark. The Inner Harbor is within walking distance, but the Purple Line will get you there quicker---for free Overall, great hotel. We will be staying there on our next trip to Baltimore.

Mt. Vernon - an affordable place to stay.

Posted Sep 15, 2014
Pros: This old hotel has pleasing historic ambiance.

Location: It's in pleasant walking distance to the downtown, inner harbor, convention center and nearby art museums and other historic and cultural attractions.
Mt. Vernon is an affordable place to stay in a great location.

One night only

Posted Sep 14, 2014
Pros: Not much!
Cons: Thorough carpet cleaning. Better mattress. Better lighting. Air conditioning/heating that actually works.
Location: Not much to do nearby.
This hotel has definitely seen better days. It seemed to be busy, however. I thought my room was smelly and on the dingy side. Air conditioning/heating didn't work well--always too cold no matter how high I set the thermostat.

Excellent Location at a Good Price

Posted Sep 11, 2014
Pros: Location, staff.
Location: see above
The Mount Vernon is not a luxury property, but it is clean and well-maintained with comfortable, well-appointed if basic rooms. Its greatest virtue is close proximity to many of Baltimore's attractions, including the Peabody Institute, the Walters Museum, and the Catholic Basilica, and it is only a little further to the Inner Harbor tourist zone or the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins medical facilities. The breakfast is adequate, and parking is, for an inner city hotel, reasonably priced. We needed an overnight room, and the Mount Vernon met our needs very well.

moderately inexpensive for a convenient location.

Posted Sep 11, 2014
Pros: location to inner-harbor and other beautiful buildings
Cons: this hotel needs new managemanet
Location: very convenient for a 10 to 15 minute walk in a south and north direction. The cities curcular bus or purple line which is free runs close to hotel
staff service was terrible, housekeeping atrocious, most of the room-maids very unfriendly. Breakfast was ok but could be more variety and more quantety of foods, like juieces, fruits, etc

Only one advantage is close to the harbor...

Posted Sep 8, 2014
Pros: The breakfast buffet was really good. And location...
Cons: Rooms should be renovated and AC must work when more than 30 C is outside...
Stayed for a one night. Air conditioner did not work. Thermostat is from 1970s with broken cover panel. Was not able to use AC as a fan, due to noise from the unit. Smell of old building is in the room.
