10 Best Hotels in Downtown Baltimore: Where Action and Comfort Harmoniously Meet

The convenience of staying in a hotel downtown in Baltimore's Inner Harbor can't be beat. Being close to the city's top attractions, restaurants, and entertainment makes paying the extra price worth every penny.

The Four Seasons Baltimore is the epitome of downtown luxury. Housing its own restaurants, spa, and cafes, this hotel feels much like a resort. Located in Harbor East, one of the city's hippest and trendiest neighborhoods, the Four Seasons Baltimore is within walking distance to a variety of shopping and dining choices. Besides its own spa, the hotel has a cafe and two restaurants, the modern-American Wit & Wisdom and the Japanese pub-style eatery, Pabu. Even if you don't stay overnight, you may want to stop in for a world-class gourmet meal, a hand-crafted cup of coffee, or a hot beignet.

Travelers looking for a more historic setting to lay their weary heads can set their bags down at The Inn at Henderson's Wharf in Fell's Point. The environment is more laid back and relaxed, resembling that of a quiet retreat. Its historic structure provides respite from the modern hotels that populate the downtown area but it doesn't compromise on the creature comforts and amenities that today's sophisticated traveler may be looking for. All in all, Baltimore offers a nice variety of hotels downtown to relax, relate, and release.
