The scoop: An ornate arch flanked by two 18th-century cannons recovered from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor make for a grand entrance to this hotel on historic Recreation Pier in the Fell’s Point neighborhood. The renovated 1914 building boasts spacious rooms that combine mahogany and brass accents for a nautical feel, accented with paintings and sculptures by local artists.
Amenities: The on-site Rec Pier Chop House serves classic Italian cuisine, and the Cannon Room features whiskey, rye and bourbon cocktails. Water taxi transportation to all city attractions is available.
Don’t miss: Close to 100 vendors sell specialty foods—from seafood to traditional Southern to Caribbean and Asian—at the nearby Lexington Market, a Charm City landmark since 1782. Also visit the galleries and home studios of artists in the city’s Station North Arts and Entertainment District.
