No Better Evening Any Other Place

We love staying at the Antrim. Each stay has been wonderful from our room to the evening dinner and breakfast. New Year's Eve at the Antrim is on the top of our list, too. Couldn't have a better evening any other place!

Theft from a locked room

We stayed at this hotel in December 2012. While we were at the dinner, several items were stolen from our room -diamond earrings that were a wedding gift and therefore sentimental, my wallet was emptied of all cash, several lip sticks and lip glosses, and my sunglasses were stolen. We didn't notice the items were missing until the next morning when we notified the manager and called the police. The room was locked when we went to the party and locked when we returned so the police questioned the Antrim staff that did turn-down service the night before. The woman that turned down our room was suspected by the police but she would not confess. The police stated that she had criminal record. The rooms do not record entries, thus providing her an "out". At no time did the owner of Antrim address this with us however he asked the manager to bring the police officer to speak with him. According to the police, the manager proceeded to berate at the police officer for questioning his staff and threw him out via a back door. The police officer also said he was shocked at the lack of cooperation by Antrim and the façade the manager portrayed to us, pretending to care. We know that someone with a key to our room committed this crime and as far as we know, still works at Antrim. Over the last 8 years we hosted our wedding receipt and several corporate events as well as made many visits for overnight stays. This unfortunately incident has tarnished all the happy memories we had of Antrim and the many events we hosted there. We recommend that you find another place to spend the night until the ownership changes. A property that claims to be a luxury Inn should at least know who is working for them as well as support their guests when a crime is committed there.

Management Response
"This individual’s review is false, misleading and bordering on slanderous. The Taneytown police department has recognized many false statements from this review and would be happy to speak with anyone regarding concerns about Antrim 1844 or our cooperation in this matter. Antrim has been under the same ownership for 25 years and we pride ourselves in providing a place where our guests feel welcome and leave feeling refreshed and relaxed. All of our employees undergo criminal background checks prior to employment and we hold our employees at the strictest expectations for behavior and actions on the property. The owner came in immediately to speak with the police and has given his full cooperation as has the rest of the staff. Please note, from the reviewer’s e-mail 4 days after the alleged theft, “We really appreciate Antrim’s help with this, especially the lead housekeeper…who helped us turn the rooms upside down looking for (name removed) earrings”. “Hi Robin, Thanks for your kind note. We really appreciate Antrim’s help with this, especially the lead housekeeper (Sandy was her name?) who helped us turn the rooms upside down trying to find (name removed) earrings. After discovering that we were also missing cash, it seems that searching the room was futile.” Despite the reviewer’s claim, no other guest in his party reported anything to us about lost or stolen items, either at check out or a later time. Additionally, the police have never reported to us additional claims. The police have not, since the reviewer’s report to them, ever asked us for any additional information or even asked to speak to any individuals. As the police have found no evidence linking anyone to this incident, or even evidence of a theft, there have been no charges filed or resolution to this issue."

Great place, lousy help

The facility was fine, it was the management that was lousy. I like the place, just not too impressed with the help.

Management Response
Antrim 1844 prides itself on the level of service we provide our guests and their satisfaction with us. Certainly this guests displeasure with the staff is unacceptable to us and we will do everything we can to ensure that experience is not had by other guests. We do wish the guest would have addressed any issues with us at the time, so that we may have resolved the problem during their stay, allowing them to have had a more enjoyable experience.
