The Lord Baltimore Hotel
20 W. Baltimore Street
For anyone who remembers its time as a boring old Radisson, entering the new Lord Baltimore Hotel is a wow. The huge lobby with its opulently decorated ceiling has been restored to the grandeur of its Art Deco glory years. The 500-seat ballroom, in soft ivory and grey, showcases original 1928 murals of Baltimore scenes. The sleek guest rooms have signature linens emblazoned with the legendary “Lord Baltimore Hotel.” There’s a good French restaurant, too. But perhaps the most interesting way the Lord Baltimore is distinguishing itself from the competition — which includes the neighboring Kimpton Hotel Monoco — is with its art collection.
