Get charmed by our downtown Baltimore hotel
Our downtown Baltimore hotel places guests close to the sights and sounds that give our city its distinctive character. Here you'll discover a mix of culture and entertainment that reflect nearly 300 years of history plus modern-day additions that keep things interesting and fresh. Museums and family-friendly attractions cluster around the Inner Harbor, while legendary neighborhoods spoke out from our central, highly-walkable hub.
Spend a leisurely day exploring the historic areas of Federal Hill, Fell's Point, and Mount Vernon, all easily accessible from our front door. Federal Hill, less than a mile from our hotel, bubbles over with antiques shops, specialty boutiques, pubs, and restaurants. To the east, Fell's Point is a waterfront community that dates back to the 18th century, and now hosts a charming collection of pubs and restaurants, boutiques, and antiques. Indulge in Chesapeake Bay seafood here, from blue crab to oysters on the half shell.
Visit Mount Vernon, just north of our downtown Baltimore hotel, for a look at the nation's first monument to George Washington, galleries, and shops. Greek and Roman antiquities abound at The Walters Art Museum, while cutting-edge artwork draws you to The Contemporary.
When mealtime rolls around, sate all your senses at Lexington Market, a massive indoor market established in 1782, now boasting 103 food stands that sell produce, meat, and seafood, among other local goodies. Also be sure to explore the Mount Vernon culinary circuit, where hot spots serve fare from around the globe. Try delicious destinations like Minato Sushi Bar (creative sushi rolls in a hip, colorful haunt with a buzzing happy-hour scene), Sascha’s (New American cuisine in an elegant dining room inside a 19th-century townhouse), The Brewer’s Art (housemade Belgian-style brews and upscale New American fare, also in a former townhouse), Sotto Sopra (farm-to-table contemporary Italian cuisine and wines in an art-filled space), and The Helmand (delicious Afghani fare). At City Cafe you can enjoy cozy cuppas in the casual cafe and American fare in the sleek dining room; the loft-like Bun Shop is a late-night BYOB cafe that specializes in filled buns like piroshki and empanadas, plus Vietnamese coffee.
With three state-designated arts and entertainment districts, Baltimore also proves the perfect place to feast your eyes on beautiful, thought-provoking sights. Just steps from Penn Station, the Station North A & E District houses the arts in many forms — from street art to curated exhibits. The Highlandtown Arts District (a.k.a. “ha!”) is a culturally diverse district featuring art galleries, shops, and enticing events. Just 3 blocks from our hotel, the 15-story Bromo Seltzer Tower has been transformed into studio spaces for visual and literary artists who open their studios to visitors every week (and at special events throughout the year).
