Our Boutique Hotel Near Camden Yards: A Sure Hit for Baseball Fans
Hotel Monaco Baltimore is located just a half mile from Oriole Park at Camden Yards, home of one of Major League Baseball's favorites. A former railroad center, Oriole Park is known for its retro design and old-fashioned charm, even though it opened as recently as 1992. Some pretty big moments in baseball have happened within its lively confines, including when Cal Ripken Jr.'s biggest claim to fame was breaking Lou Gehrig's record for consecutive games played and he did it with 2,131 games… it's dubbed the most memorable moment in MLB history!
The stadium is also notable because it's a mere two blocks from the home of baseball legend George Herman "Babe" Ruth. Visit the Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum for a look at photographs, paintings and memorabilia associated with the "Sultan of Swat."
But the best part of staying in a hotel near Camden Yards is, of course, catching a baseball game on a nice day. Any Baltimore local would agree, and would advise you: don't forget your peanuts and Cracker Jacks.
