The Mount Vernon yearns to be an up-scale lodging, but misses on almost every count. Our recent experience was somewhat disappointing because we booked the Mount Vernon thinking it would be a sophisticated downtown hotel. At check-in, I asked for aspirin to relieve a thunderous headache caused by our tedious drive into Baltimore in driving rain. The staff couldn't accomodate me because the hotel medicine chest had not been restocked. Our internet-booked room was very small and dreary. The desk lamp shook from the energy created by two small fry in the adjoining room enjoying themselves. On the plus side, the room furnishings were handsome and in good condition. Original water color art adorned the walls and was a statement that hotel management was trying mightily to create an plush experience. The hotel is close by great dining and a moderate walk to the Inner Harbor.
Cons: Vehicle park options
