This place is a VIBE, and will be my go to spot when I visit Baltimore. Visually appealing everywhere you look, the staff is amazing and the chef at Ash is the real deal. It's been years since i got wowed while traveling, and this place did it. LGBTQ welcoming, for sure. If you like the big chain hotels, this isn't your spot.

I LOVED this hotel-you step inside and it feels like you’ve stepped into a novel from long ago. The bedrooms are gorgeous and comfortable, with bedding that made you feel like you were sleeping in a marshmallow. The bathrooms were beautiful and looked like something out of a Vogue spread, and also had a nice sized shower, unlike the chain hotels I normally frequent. The cafe/bar Ash-Bar (I had other plans during my stay that didn’t let get to the Bloom’s cocktail lounge) was styled in a way that reminded me of European train cars and sumptuous food and drink. The prices of everything is very fair and you definitely get your money’s worth here. I also want to point out that every staff member I interacted with was very kind and friendly and made me feel very welcome. When the sensor for my original room pulled a Hodor and wouldn’t let me in (tech issues happen, especially when things are new), the staff went above and beyond to resolve the situation and moving me to a new room, all while checking on me and seeing if I needed anything in the meantime. The three days I stayed here went by so fast, and I can’t wait to come back for another stay (I predict Bloom’s will be a big NYE spot).

Will be great, but not just yet.
It’s a beautiful place in a fun location. It’s brand new - we arrived on their 11th day in business. I attribute the exceedingly slow service for valet parking and restaurant food arrival to their newness. All of the employees were polite and charming, just unfamiliar with what I wanted from them.
