No matter how much time you spend in Baltimore, it for sure won’t be enough. There is such a wide variety of things to do and see, that it’ll keep the youngest person in your party as entertained as the oldest. You’ll find a vibrant community here, filled with incredible museums, to die for restaurants, a locals-approved music scene, and all right near the beautiful Inner Harbor. What’s not to love about Baltimore? And while you’re planning your visit, check out these great Baltimore stays - they’re some of the best places to splurge on!

1. Enoch Pratt Library Tower (from 1000 USD)

The Enoch Pratt Library Tower has an incredibly rich culture, that is a dream for any history lover. It was originally built in 1921 and it initially served as a residence for Eastern European immigrants and later became a school. After that, it turned into a machine shop, that built pipe organs for churches. I could go on and on about the history of the building, but what is most astounding is the four story tower, built right in the center, that gives anyone a panoramic view of Baltimore.

2. Fells Point home (from 433 USD)

Who says you can’t have a gourmet kitchen on vacation? This row home proves otherwise. The kitchen in this home is lavish and dreamy, and the rest of the house definitely holds up to the same high standard. The main house has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, but you also have access to a studio apartment, located right above the carriage house and across the tiered garden patio. This home is perfect for large groups and is conveniently located just two blocks from the waterfront, close to Johns Hopkins and downtown Baltimore, making it ideal for both those just looking to visit or those who want to stay a bit longer.

3. Downtown Little Italy house (from 359 USD)

To me, the best part of this house is not the beautiful finishes (that I’ll get to later), but rather the fact that you can walk to literally everything, including the aquarium, Power Plant, water taxi, shopping at Inner Harbor, the waterfront promenade, and dozens of restaurants and bars. For me, that’s a dream come true. Aside from the amazing location, the house is also beautiful!

The owners describe the home as “storybook charm meets old world romance, in Baltimore’s Little Italy”. The exposed brick and modern finishes uniquely blend together, to make the home charming, yet opulent.

4. Hyatt Place @ Inner Harbor (from USD 119)

Hyatt Place is a crowd favorite in downtown Baltimore. The elegant hotel features an indoor pool, onsite dining, city views from each room, a fitness center, and more. It’s located right near the Maryland Science Center and Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Those interested in the Baltimore food scene (i.e. anyone who loves to eat) will feel right at home since you’ll be steps away from a plethora of restaurants and bars in Little Italy.

They give their guests stunning views of the city and are just minutes away from the National Aquarium, Power Plant, Historic Ships, and other popular attractions. The units themselves are modern and crisp, giving you a roomy and luxurious feel, while still in a downtown setting.

7. The Fitzgerald (from USD 265)

Personally, I find that when a house has its own name, it must mean it’s fancy. And the Fitzgerald doesn’t disappoint. The mansion was named after F. Scott Fitzgerald, but it was originally home to wealthy tobacco planters, the founders of Tiffany & Co, a Johns Hopkins surgeon who performed the world’s FIRST heart transplant, and a composer for the Queen of England. The mansion, which now houses 2-story apartments, features incredible views and modern finishes, all tied together with old world charm. Seriously, if the list of previous residents doesn’t sell you, the apartment itself will.

8. Federal Hill home (from USD 290)

This Federal Hill home has 5 bedrooms, just waiting to be filled by you and your group. This home can sleep 14 guests, has two porches, a back patio and rooftop deck, expansive main living space, and is found two blocks from Raven’s Stadium and a short walk to the Convention Center and surrounding attractions. It’s not only big enough to just house your large group but it’s also big enough to ~comfortably~ house your large group. With plenty to do in the area, you may overlook the rooftop deck, but I suggest you don’t because you’re privy to an amazing view of the stadium and you don’t even have to put shoes on.

9. Rowhouse Resort

I think the owners describe the Rowhouse Resort best: “it’s 1300+ square feet of chic paradise”. Staying at the Rowhouse Resort will place you in one of the trendiest neighborhoods in Baltimore. You’re also just a short walk away from the water taxi, Canton Marina, the Can Company, O'Donnell Square and more! The vacation rental itself is beautiful, as well, with its lovely rooftop deck, comfy rocking chairs, and complimentary wine! The bedrooms are airy and give you great city views, so what’s not to love about this place?

Up to eight privileged individuals will find no trouble in enjoying the frequent sunshine, well-lit spaces, and an upscale vibe that characterizes the entirety of the luxurious property.

You’ll enjoy a winning proximity to an array of attractions, including the downtown district, a multipurpose convention center, multiple sporting and recreational venues, and an assemblage of critically acclaimed restaurants and pubs renowned for their ability to redefine expectations.

11. Fells Point yacht

What else screams luxury than a yacht? And this one is actually a steal at only 115 USD per night and it sleeps 6 people. What the yacht lacks in square footage it makes up in luxury.

Off the yacht, you can explore Fells Point and Canton and you are within walking distance to a myriad of bars and restaurants - so you’ll never be bored. This is your chance to splurge on a vacation, while not blowing your budget - so what are you waiting for?
