Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Monaco Baltimore

2 N. Charles St., Baltimore, Maryland, 21201, United States

This 202-room boutique hotel is in the historic headquarters of the B&O Railroad—just two and a half blocks from the Inner Harbor and within easy walking distance of First Mariner Arena, Everyman Theatre, and Oriole Park at Camden Yards. The grand, two-story marble lobby with Tiffany stained glass may seem imposing, but the hotel is quite family friendly. Amenities include rooms with bunk beds, X-Box video game systems, and flat-screen TVs. There are history- and baseball-themed room packages. It's the little touches that the Kimpton brand is known for that make this hotel so memorable: from the complimentary bath robes and yoga mats in each room and organic coffee service in the morning, to a free bike share program complete with a map of the best downtown routes. Enjoy a daily wine hour from 5 to 6 with juice boxes for the kids, Berger cookies, and other locally sourced treats. Pets are welcome at no extra charge. The on-site B&O Brasserie restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
