    I was just trying to make a reservation at the ICH Baltimore and every date kept saying no rooms available. A quick Google and then to facebook showed the following post.

    InterContinental Harbor Court Baltimore
    Yes at midnight tonight we are officially becoming the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court, Baltimore. We are so excited to be joining the Sonesta Collection!! Tammy, We are so Happy you had a wonderful stay with us. We hope to see you back soon!

    It's a nice hotel in a very good location but I hadn't realized that it was an IC.

    Interestingly, the hotel sub-site under IC is still up, but as you found out you just can't make any reservations.

    But when you visit the main IC site and look at the map, the hotel is no longer on the list of US properties.

    Looks like the transition is officially taking place tomorrow though...

    I beg to differ. :)

    Perhaps this has been reported here before, but it looks like the Crowne Plaza in Philadelphia will also become a Sonesta hotel this month: http://www.sonesta.com/Philadelphia/.

    Yes bummer! I had heard good things about the hotel, and as an RA I was trying to book a summer getaway for the wife and I on our anniversary.

    That sucks!!! I had a great stay with my kids in Baltimore a coupe years ago as an RA. Huge suite upgrade and treated wonderfully. I also stay at the Crowne Plaza frequently too. I am way under on IHG nights this year and may not requalify for RA by August. I'm way up with SPG and Hyatt. The areas that I've been traveling to have had truly awful IHG properties.
