About Lord Baltimore Hotel

At the time of its construction in 1928, the 23-story Lord Baltimore Hotel was the largest hotel in Maryland. Named for George Calvert, Lord Baltimore and founder of the Maryland colony, it was the last high-rise building with classical ornamentation erected in downtown Baltimore. The lobby has graciously welcomed guests with its stately columns and traditional appointments for nearly a century, while the guestrooms offer a level of comfort that is unmatched to this day. High-tech amenities are located throughout the hotel, from its accommodations to the event spaces. Located downtown, the Lord Baltimore Hotel is a short walk to many prime attractions such as the Inner Harbor, the National Aquarium, Oriole Park at Camden Yards, and M&T Bank Stadium.
