A boutique lodging and modern-events space with a unique, experiential twist in the heart of Charm City

The Lowdown

Prepare to be dazzled from your first step into Pier 5 Hotel, where, on
occasion, an aerialist dangles from the highest peak of the atrium
lobby. With brightly lit sculptures and gorgeous works of art, this
property guarantees an unusual stay. So much more than just a hotel, the
TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner offers an array of
localized activities intended for a truly experiential visit. Take a
Maryland crab cooking class at its weekday Crabby Hour, indulge your
sweet tooth at the Saturday Chocolate Event reception, or brainstorm
more activities yet with your own personal “experience specialist.”
on its own pier, the hotel is conveniently located next to the National
Aquarium, Pier Six Pavilion and the Power Plant Live! entertainment
complex, plus walking distance to loads of shops and restaurants in the
heart of the city’s Inner Harbor. With such a convenient position, you
can’t help but feel charmed by Baltimore’s historic vibes and nautical
nostalgia, which is probably why the city is conveniently dubbed “Charm
City.” We couldn’t agree more.


Measuring in at more than 375 square feet, Pier 5’s King rooms are warm and inviting, with yellow and purple walls. Most King rooms look out over the city of Baltimore, while the Harbor View option offers views of – you guessed it – the Inner Harbor.  


Pier 5 Hotel is home to two renowned, upscale restaurants. Dig in to a tender steak at the outpost of the famed Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, or enjoy the fresh seafood fare that Maryland is known for at McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood Restaurant, where you can indulge in local crab cakes, the catch of the day and surf ‘n’ turf.


Pier 5 Hotel is located in the heart of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, home to the National Aquarium, Pier Six Pavilion and the Power Plant Live! entertainment complex, plus hundreds of shops, cafés and restaurants. Hop the Harbor Magic shuttle to move between the hotel’s three sister properties in Fell’s Point, Inner Harbor and Johns Hopkins Hospital Main Campus, as well as to high-profile attractions such as the Maryland Science Center, Harborplace and The Gallery and Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

Weekend get away

Our family of three stayed at this property for two nights and couldn’t be happier! The staff was extremely helpful and polite...they made you feel like family. The rooms were clean, nice and beds very comfortable. The location was central to everything in our opinion. We were steps away from the aquarium, inner harbor and museums and plenty of restaurants. I would definitely stay at this property again.

Pier 5 Hotel and Breakfast

The hotel was clean, well furnished, and located within easy walking distance of the Inner Harbor attractions.

In particular, the breakfast prepared by Chef Monti was delicious and well appreciated. He customizes each omelet per each guest's wishes using only the best, high quality ingredients. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Wonderful hospitality for a sick traveler

Hotel is a little dingy in certain aspects but clean - on par for the price with other nearby hotels. I was here for a conference but unfortunately was just coming down with a cold. The staff here - Tyescher, Shameika, Marilyn and Marina - went out of their was to help me feel as comfortable as possible in a home away from home while sick. I truly appreciate how caring everyone was and would without hesitation recommend this hotel due to such wonderful hospitality.

Thank you so much!
