Originally built in 1928 and designed in the French Renaissance style, the Lord Baltimore towers over the Baltimore skyline at 23 stories.
The historic hotel, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, features a brick veneer over a steel frame, offers 440 new guest rooms and suites, including four unique custom-designed full-floor 3,000 square-foot penthouse suites with panoramic views of downtown Baltimore.
Following a complete renovation and restoration spearheaded by New York-based interior designer Scott Sanders, formerly a designer for Ralph Lauren, all guest rooms and public spaces feature authentic and unique designs in Sanders’ “New American Style.”
Overall, the décor’s themes of gold and gloss speak to its grand hotel heritage, while a soothing black-and-gray mix of menswear fabrics accented by bright colors pays homage to both the historical, eponymous six Lords Baltimore and the hotel’s business travelers.
The history is shown throughout with original Baccarat crystal chandeliers and murals in the Calvert Ballroom and the original lobby ceiling.
Every detail of the Lord Baltimore Hotel is rich in historical and architectural significance, all coming together to create one of the most unique and interesting hotels in downtown Baltimore. Guests arriving through the revolving doors are greeted by a magnificent lobby featuring a beautiful grand piano, classic oil paintings, polished brass and an award-winning vaulted fresco ceiling with an immense Murano glass chandelier.
The hotel is conveniently located in the transportation center of downtown Baltimore, a two-minute walk from Royal Farms Arena and a short walk from the Baltimore Convention Center, the Inner Harbor and stadiums.
