Spacious Suites and Fine Dining near the Harbor
While Baltimore’s best-known attractions are Inner Harbor, Camden Yards, and Fort McHenry, the city's quieter, charming side lies in its many historic neighborhoods. Guests staying at The Tremont Plaza Suites and Grand Historic Venue can easily walk to two of them. Mount Vernon, one of the city’s oldest sections, has been a desirable address since the country's first monument to George Washington was built there in 1829. Today, the neighborhood’s elegant 19th-century townhomes share space with the Walters Art Museum and the Lyric opera house. Down on the waterfront, the cobblestone streets of the Fell's Point district—a former sailor's stopover—draw visitors for their fashionable restaurants and lively taverns. While you explore Baltimore’s inviting neighborhoods, stay in sophisticated style at the Tremont Plaza Suites and Grand Historic Venue, an all-suites hotel.
Fodor’s writes that suites' “tasteful earth-tone guest rooms … are a favorite of musicians and actors performing at local theaters.” It’s easy to see why—all rooms feature homey comforts, including kitchenettes with refrigerators and microwaves, and guests have access to DirecTV and HBO on flat-panel TVs. In the junior suites, decorations and wall-to-wall carpeting fill up to 450 square feet.
The Tremont Plaza Suites and Grand Historic Venue offers three different restaurants, so guests can enjoy a sit-down steak dinner or grab a gourmet sandwich on the go. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Tug's Bar and Grille serves regional cuisine, including famous Maryland lump-crab cakes with roasted-corn salsa and red-pepper aioli and shrimp and grits, while the Plaza Deli stuffs nearly 80 sandwiches with Boar's Head meats.
Baltimore: World-Class Museums and Historic Waterfront Neighborhoods
Located just south of downtown Baltimore, the Inner Harbor has become one of the city’s best-known landmarks, a historic seaport that was redeveloped into a tourism district in the mid-20th century. You’ll find several museums here, from the National Aquarium, which houses more than 16,500 sea creatures, to the Historic Ships in Baltimore museum, featuring the 1854-built USS Constellation and the World War II–era USS Torsk submarine. Head up to the Baltimore World Trade Center's 27th-floor observation deck for 360-degree views of the Charm City's skyline, the Inner Harbor, and the Chesapeake Bay. On a heritage walking tour led by the National Park Service, you can learn about Little Italy, Jonestown, and the Flag House and Star-Spangled Banner Museum.
For art lovers, a visit to the Baltimore Museum of Art is a must, since it holds the world’s largest collection of Matisse paintings. And about half a mile from the hotel, you can marvel at an astounding array of Egyptian mummies, Asian jade sculptures, and European Renaissance paintings for free at the [Walters Art Museum] (http://bit.ly/43Wp3P).
