Baltimore, Maryland is the site of the U.S. National Aquarium, the Inner Harbor, and of many interesting things to see and do. Many of Baltimore’s attractions are related to America’s history. There are over 70 Baltimore hotels in the city from which to choose, and many of them are conveniently located near the city’s main attractions.
Pier 5 Hotel is a great place to stay that is close to the National Aquarium and within walking distance of Little Italy where a great authentic Italian meal can be found. The hotel is designed in a quaint old style and sits right on the Inner Harbor. You can get a hands-on cooking lesson on how to cook Maryland Crab Dip or a crab crepe right in the hotel.
Another excellent Baltimore hotel is Admiral Fell Inn. This European-style hotel is located in the middle of Fell’s Point, Baltimore’s most historic neighborhood. The charming décor of the hotel is very unique and no two rooms are the same. The hotel is made up of seven different buildings that date back to the 1770’s and are a part of the city’s history. There are ghost tours available in the hotel, and it is said that the famous poet, Edgar Allen Poe, was last seen alive in the Admiral Fell Inn. A great feature of staying at this hotel is that it is right in the middle of the shops, taverns, and eateries in Fell’s Point.
Henderson’s Wharf Inn is also located at Fell’s Point, so you can take a water taxi to many of the nearby attractions. Rooms feature either beautiful harbor views or garden view rooms, and you will receive a free bottle of either red or white wine when you check in. You might want to take a tour of the Chesapeake and Boston harbor at nearby Harbor Sail which is located right outside of Henderson’s Wharf Inn. You can take a day tour or a sunset cruise on a sailing yacht complete with a captain tour guide.
If you are looking for a high-end hotel that is clean, comfortable, and well-decorated, you will enjoy your stay at The Renaissance Hotel. Besides all of the amenities of a fine hotel, it also offers a gorgeous view of the Inner Harbor which is at its front door. The Inner Harbor dates back to the 1600’s and is one of America’s oldest seaports, so there is a lot of charm in this part of Baltimore. You can eat seafood fresh from Chesapeake Bay at nearby restaurants close to The Renaissance Hotel.
