Overview

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.”
Situated
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.

Rooms

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.  

Dining

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.

Location

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.

Love this hotel for my family travel needs. Very kid friendly and makes your vacation that much better by making you feel part of their family. Excellent view and rooms are amazing and clean. We Love Pier 5!

Outside appearance is attractive, close to entertainments and harbor east. Inside the hotel seemed very dated with older style chairs and does not have an uplifting feeling. The inside awning type structure seemed nice front the first floor but on the 2nd and 3rd floor it had a broken glass and a hole to it. AND THE MOST IMPORTANT PART the room...what you paid to stay at... was so outdated I felt like it had a late 80s early 90s crappy apartment in 80s lower east side. Just to name issues I can remember: exposed cable wire in the corner, jet engine sounding sink and whenever you flush the toilet, Outdated carpet, wall stains, stains on the coffee table, really dated couch and 2 arm chairs, being a part of the Hilton name - it doesn’t even have an interactive tv to check out, surf channels, etc. I stayed in room 315, with my wife and 3 year old kid because it was close to everything, but the whole time in the room made me want to just wanted to end the vacation. I’d love to stay there again and pay an even higher price if it was updated A LOT

Location was perfect! Aquarium is a 2 minute walk and the power plant is located conveniently next door to grab food or a drink. Right on the water, so views were amazing. The only downfall is you pay for location, not luxury. WiFi cost additional to the $200+ I already spent per room!

Lovely, small hotel.

Hotel chosen by the event I was attending in Baltimore - so glad to know about it for future visits. Beautiful, unique design with a welcoming staff and great service all around. Great group dinner in the banquet space with an amazing view of the Inner Harbor. Highly recommended!

Right in the heart of Baltimore

It was a pleasure to stay at Pier 5. From the pleasant Valet who took my car to the friendly receptionist who checked me in I felt welcomed. The evening receptions were nice with complimentary beer and wine and snacks served by a very happy employee who loved her job. My room was super clean and had plenty of light with a comfortable bed and a bonus I had a balcony facing the Inner Harbor. The dinners provided were tasty and creatively displayed. Overall great experience and I would be happy to return.
