We had some unexpected stays this past weekend/early part of the week – due to a mechanical breakdown of our brand new, 19 day old VW Tiguan 🙁 — as a result, we spent 5 nights at 2 properties at BWI airport.

After spending 2 nights at the BWI Marriott, we moved over to the Sheraton Baltimore Washington Airport BWI for what was to be 2 nights, but ended up being 3 nights.

I booked a standard King room, the same day using a AAA rate, for an avg nightly rate of $138. My wife and I arrived early, around 1:30pm. While there were no rooms ready yet, the FDA did give us a key to the lounge so that we could wait there while housekeeping was getting rooms ready.

Less than an hour later, we walked through the lobby and the FDA let us know a King room on the 6th floor was available. She proceeded to check me in, and after a quick view of my *still* Titanium status, and after hearing about our car breakdown, she smiled and told me to hold on a moment, while she changed the room.

I had a good feeling I knew what she was doing, and it was confirmed when we opened the door to one of the 2 suites on the 6th floor. If floors 2-5 are setup the same way, that put’s the hotel at 10 suites total. We were only planning on 2 nights, but the car was not ready by end of day on Tuesday, so we added a 3rd night.

The room was fantastic – the only real complaints — and NO are not really “complaints”:
  • the hot water was too hot. We had to wait a couple of minutes with the handle in the coldest setting to bring some cold water up 🙂
  • The shower really could benefit from an adjustable shower head, with separate wand like so many remodels and upgraded rooms have. It wasn’t really a problem for me, but my wife’s thick, curly hair would have benefited from it.
 
Aside from some UberEats for lunches, we ate breakfast and dinner at the hotel. The Club breakfast was OK. I wouldn’t pay extra for it, but it was a pretty typical Club/Lounge breakfast. Evening snacks were again, OK, within what I expect and see at other lounges. Dinner in the restaurant/bar was good. The menu was smaller, and typical – food portions and quality of food was good.

We did eat dinner the 3rd night at the Westin BWI that shares the physical property with the Sheraton. Dinner there was noticeably better than the Sheraton, with a different, more Asian inspired menu. Pricing was about the same, and in some cases less expensive.

We would have stayed at the Westin, but I needed to have a place to work Monday and Tuesday morning and the Lounge at the Westin is closed. I had planned on working from the lounge at the Sheraton, but didn’t have to with the Fantastic room we ended up in!
