Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore
Skyscraper on the Harbor
What it is
A gleaming glass tower on the Inner Harbor, with a cabana-flanked rooftop pool and a sleek and tranquil spa.
What it isn't
Hungry. There are three dining options here, including a poolside bar where staffers will happily bring a lobster roll with herb aioli and a coconut mojito to your sunlit daybed.
What we think
The word “glam” doesn’t begin to capture the experience at this new star on the Baltimore waterfront, where floor-to-ceiling glass windows maximise every centimeter of what’s an undeniably jaw-dropping view. Guest rooms are nothing short of ginormous (starting at 502-square-feet), and most have balconies. We love the aptly-named Serene Suite, which has a kitchen worthy of Ina Garten (including Sub Zero and Wolf appliances), plus a living room with a gas fireplace that peeps out on the water, tucked within its 1,736-square-foot floor plan. But whichever room you pick, know that pampering comes with the territory; gratis services include overnight shoeshine, twice daily housekeeping, turndown, and a doting concierge that speaks multiple languages.
You're here because
Kids have their very own wee red carpet rolled out for them, including amenities tailored to their ages, loaner cribs and playpens, babysitters at-the-ready, and a concierge who can book all manner of family exploits, including topnotch Orioles tickets.
After soaking into a thoroughly blissful state in the spa’s modernist window front hot tub, you’re more than ready for your treatment: a Himilayan salt scrub and Ayurvedic scalp massage. Aaaaah.
