Pull into Baltimore’s historic beaux-arts station and choo-choo-choose from one of these nearby hotels to spend the night.
The hustle and bustle of Charm City is off the rails, and your one-way ticket to a good time starts the moment you get off of the train at Baltimore Penn Station. Fly over to M&T Bank Stadium for a Ravens game or quote the raven as you trace Poe’s final footsteps. Whether you’re staying for a night or hanging around for days, these hotels will keep you on time – and are bookable on Culture Trip.
You’ll see downtown Baltimore in all its glory from the rooftop bar at Revival. What’s more, the heartbeat of Charm City can be felt just as strongly through the local art in each room and the locally sourced ingredients at B-Side speakeasy. Step outside and walk the same streets that Mary Garrett did, then tuck yourself into Miss Mary’s Suite, where you’ll be surrounded by the century-old restored wood and crown molding of the building’s original interior.
Heading from a train to a plane or vice versa? The Hotel at Arundel Preserve will keep your trip on track. They’ll give you a lift to BWI airport for free, or to the Live! Casino, Arundel Mills mall, or anywhere else you fancy within a five-mile (8km) radius. A soaking tub and spa-inspired shower in the Chic Suites should wash off a long day of travel, while the Grillfire restaurant will keep your plate full if a long layover is on the menu.
Rest your head on Baltimore’s Recreation Pier before catching your train. OK, maybe not directly on the pier, but with floor-to-ceiling windows sitting just feet away from your pillow, you’ll almost roll out of bed into the harbor. We’d suggest splashing in the waterfront pool instead – same views, fewer fish. While the cannons beneath the pier may be lost to time, the whisky at the Cannon Room will still knock you off your feet.
