Home For More Than a Hundred Years
At Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, we’re proud to be well-known (and well-loved!) for caring about environmentally-friendly design and historic preservation. Over the years we’ve been lucky enough to breathe new life into many historic buildings across the country—transforming them into stylish boutique hotels that our guests and neighboring community can enjoy firsthand.
We have to admit, the B&O Railroad Headquarters Building had us at hello – from the soaring marble staircases to the sparkling chandeliers— we just knew we had to be a part of preserving this 1906 Beaux Arts gem. It’s one of the most unique projects we’ve been invited to partner on, and it was truly humbling to have a hand in restoring such an iconic part of Baltimore’s history.
More than $65 million was invested into the preservation of the building, which the National Park Service lists as one of the “Ten Enduring Landmarks of Baltimore’s Central Business District.” The building re-opened as the 202-room Kimpton Hotel Monaco Baltimore in June 2009, and we couldn’t have done it without the support of so many wonderful folks in the Baltimore community.
