Baltimore caters to the business traveler but loves families -- there are about 9,000 hotel rooms downtown, with all the expected amenities -- with more hotels due to open in 2010. In 2011, the Four Seasons will open a new hotel on Harbor East's waterfront. Bed-and-breakfasts around town offer unique style and comfort.

Every hotel listed is accessible to travelers with disabilities, although specific amenities vary from place to place.
