Report Hotel Reviews in Post Otakon 2008 Discussion Posted August 13, 2008 Place I stayed: Residence Inn Inner Harbor/Downtown Number of people in room: 4 Hotel Staff: Hotel staff was VERY polite, helpful and was interested in the convention. Fun to talk to and always were in good spirits. Anything we asked for we received in a timely manner. Walk to the con center: Approx. 5-10mins The bad: -Parking: Hotel parking is valet only at a crunching 28 dollars a day. We ended up finding a better location to park without killing our wallets. -Television: You'd expect a fairly high-end place to have a little better TVs in the room. They were good, but I think they could do better for the price we payed. -Loading area: The loading ramp on thursday was packed, we had to park in the no parking area in an alley next to the hotel. This was the same case on monday when we left, and one of the people staying with us got a ticket while we were all loading things into the vehicles. -Only has small garbage bins in the room. -Internet connection was possible, but sketchy at times. The good: -Location: Not far from the con at all on Light Street. -The Room: So roomy, comfortably fit four people. Kitchen was an awesome touch! Two TVs was another good thing. Lots of space for cosplayers to have their stuff set out. -Increased security: Elevators can only be used with keycards. After hours the hotel can only be entered via your hotel card. This kept any unwanted people from lurking the hotel. - Staff: As mentioned, helpful and friendly. Even offered to help carry our bags! - Breakfast: Though some of the food was very meh, it was a great touch to have a hot breakfast every morning. Lots of room to sit also. - Very clean and very comfortable. Temperature was always well kept. Overall, the stay was great and I'm already looking into staying again next year.
