A 19th-century home turned boutique manse tailor-made for history buffs and anglophiles
It took a five-year renovation to transform this former banker’s residence, a Gilded Age mansion in Baltimore’s most prized locale, into a breathtaking establishment. With an enviable collection of vintage books, a 19th-century pool table, and stained-glass windows, there are scores of antiques to sift through during your stay—though we wouldn’t fault you for hunkering down in your stately digs, with views of Mount Vernon’s signature slate roofs, and snuggling up by the petite fireplace instead. When you’re ready to venture out, you’ll have your pick of revered neighborhood hot spots like the symphony hall or the Maryland Historical Society (home to the original copy of “The Star-Spangled Banner”). For a trip to the Inner Harbor, a 15-minute ride away, summon the hotel’s private car service.
No two rooms are alike at this esoteric property, though all come with canopy beds and cashmere blankets. The hotel’s very inclusive amenity policy means in-room perks, like the generously stocked minibar filled with local brews and sweet treats by Californian confectioner TCHO, are included as part of your stay.
Sample global bistro fare (Korean-style wagyu flank steak; shaved truffle risotto topped with a poached and fried egg) in one of five dining spaces at the hotel’s fine-dining spot, Magdalena. Whether you’re feasting in the Garden Room surrounded by potted plants and courtyard views or the spacious Wine Cellar, your surroundings will be as cultured as the cuisine.
Baltimore’s oldest neighborhood makes the perfect backdrop for this old-school stunner. Just north of downtown, Mount Vernon, the city’s cultural nucleus, is a classy succession of cobblestoned streets and a slew of museums and galleries.
