This Kimpton property, tucked into the historic 1906 former B&O Railroad headquarters, offers a contemporary take on glamour. It's set in an H-shaped building meaning there are plenty of corner rooms (hooray!). For those who really want to splash out there are one-bedroom suites; families tend to pick the suites with bunk bed rooms. There are even "tall rooms" with longer beds and higher shower heads, specially created for those guests over 6 feet. As with most Kimpton hotels, the decor is stylish, featuring impeccably dressed beds (all-white bedding) and jewel tones on the walls, upholstery, and rugs. The hotel is pet friendly, with no fees. The building's original purpose is alluded to in side tables resembling travel trunks or covered in railroad maps. The baths are nicely appointed and every room has those nice Kimpton touches, including animal-print robes, mini bar, and yoga mat. The B&O Brasserie offers room service. A fun new feature is the bikes that come with helmets and maps for a ride to Fort McHenry—taking advantage of Baltimore's efforts to add lots of travel lanes for cyclists.
