... out. With shorter bus rides this has been the theme of late. The main touristy/nice part of Baltimore is around the harbour front. This weekend they had a motor racing grand prix and had closed a few of the streets to make a race track. I planned on going in, but tickets were a pretty step $45. I think they were cheaper on the previous days as they were heats and today are the finals. A nearby 'top of the world' tower with a observation deck were offering an ...
I was a bit worried about going to this hairspray loving city - weirdly it didn't seem at all like in the movie. We had a lovely apartment to stay in found on airbnb - which have come in handy as our local residence to register our new van. We moved hard and fast and managed to source, buy and register a van within 28hrs and only one nights paid accommodation. We have a van! High five! Baltimore will have a special place in our ...
Justin dropped us off at Penn/Baltimore Station just before 9:00 and we jumped on the 9:05 to Union Station in DC, we arrived just after 10:00 and the station is impressive enough even before heading to monuments an museums.
We walked straight across to the Capitol Building and headed around the front, where we could see the full length of the National Mall, which is over two miles long. The architecture and masonary in this place is amazing. We ...
... some of the divers who volunteer and feed the tropical fish. They gave me a full marine biology lesson on all the fish, coral and some tips on what to look out for when I go diving in the Florida Keys. I also visited the rain forest and Australia! NBC News were filming while a lady fed the big stingray and the jelly fish exhibition - awesome!
... and fairly terrifying stories from the front line. As we parted at the gate I wished him good luck in growing his new beard that apparently he needed for his next tour in some small villages in Afghanistan. 'The elders don't respect you without one, and they can tell right away if you're sporting a fake - we tried that' he said with a laugh. Nice guy. The chilly breeze of SF was soon forgotten as a wave of heat and humidity hit me at the door. Phew - a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Henderson's Wharf Inn Baltimore
just returned from a great one night stay, probably the best room accomodations short of a Four Seasons/Peninsula type hotel; the hotel has been totally refurbished, having been destroyed by a hurricane last fall; the quiet. spacious rooms are luxurious, big queen beds with thick pillowtop mattresses, large flat screen tv; our view was right onto the waterfront, though some rooms overlook a pretty inner courtyard; try for an upper level room; a free upscale continental breakfast in the courtyard awaits in the morning; the staff was very pleasant even on arrival at 10:30 p.m.; free parking is also a plus right next to the inn; the location is perfect for going to Little Italy or the Inner Harbor, being a few minute drive; otherwise, the water taxi comes fairly close to travel without a car; the inn is in the Fells Point neighborhood, trendy with lots of shops and restaurants. upcoming amenities at the inn are supposedly business services (fax, internet access), hd directv, minibar, soda machines, etc.; while still a little bare bones, due to the storm, what is there is great, a real find, and a pleasant break from the average hotels that otherwise dominate the Inner Harbor.
What a delight!!!
My husband and I just returned from Baltimore for an anniversary weekend getaway. We stayed at the Inn at Henderson's Wharf and I can't say enough about the property. The rooms were immaculate and the service superb! The location is wonderful, away from all the hustle but still close enough to all the attractions. If you are planning a trip to Baltimore you must stay at this fabulous inn. We will definitely go back soon.
Happy to report that the Inn at Henderson's Wharf is open for business and better than ever. We just came back from a two night escape and could not have been happier. The furnishings are both elegant and comfortable, the bathroom a delight, the bed (with its featherbed top) is as wonderful as I remembered from a previous visit, the mini fridge a welcome addition and the staff is outstanding. They could not have been more gracious or accommodating. It was wonderful to get away to a place that is so luxurious and...nice! Hotels in Baltimore can be very expensive. This one with its quiet on-the-water location in festive Fells Point, proximity to the Inner Harbor, free parking and expanded continental breakfast is well worth it. (While we were there for a pleasure trip there are amenities...like the early breakfast, exercise room, easy in/out parking and internet access...that would make life easier for the business traveler.)
Inn not in service - after damage in storm Sept. 2003
This fine Inn was heavily damaged in the storm of Sept. 2003. They are even now (4-17-04 I was by the Inn today and they still have some way to go) working to restore it. If it comes back to its old standards it is one of the best buys in waterfront Baltimore.
This is an awsome laid back Inn.
This is an absolute gem in a city as large as Baltimore.From the moment we made reservations (while enroute to the city) to checkout, the staff and the property were the best. Loved the parking, enjoyed the breakfast treats and the bed was of premium quality. The desk manager also gave us a complimentary bottle of wine.Anytime I return to Baltimore the Inn will be my first choice.
A solid choice
My son and I spent two nights at the Inn during a recent trip to the East Coast and enjoyed the experience very much. The Inn is clean, quiet and architecturally very appealing.It's not cheap, but for a few nights, we thought it well worth the price. The location, so close to many of Baltimore's most interesting places and historic sights, is a special plus. Our only negative was the presence of some troublemakers outside our window late at night. Security shooed them away within minutes. We'll stay here on our next trip.Jeff Standaert, Fircrest, WA
You Really Can't Ask for Anything Better!
Last minute road trip. Midnight, the night before departure, discovered the Inn at Henderson's Wharf online on Tripadvisor, went to the web site and the rest is history. The beautiful rooms, the moderate pricing (for Baltimore), the secure parking, the gracious staff, the delicious breakfast, the warm bathrobes, the too many restaurants to choose from in the area, the relaxing and enjoyable water taxi rides to the inner harbor, the perfect on the water location, the BOISE radios need I say more? As a frequent traveler, this Inn is one of the best, if not, the best hotel/Inn I have ever laid my head to rest. Have a fantastic trip to Baltimore!!!
This hotel is a lovely place to stay being that the beds are wonderful and it is very quiet. In addition you do not pay for parking and they offer a wonderful breakfast every morning. This is included in the room rate. My girl friend and I loved the assortment of fresh fruit that was offered each day. We stayed there 5 nights and every night we slept great because the beds are so comfy and the inn is very quiet. It's located in Fell's Point which is a great area in Baltimore. There are plenty of great shops and restaurants within walking distance from Henerson's Wharf. Of course you can always take the water taxi to the Inner Harbor. I highly recommend dining at John Stevens which is located about 2 blocks from the Inn. Just look in the phone book for more information. They offer a fantasic menu that includes wonderful seafood, steaks, salads, sushi etc. The service is top notch and the prices are reasonable. Don't miss out on the incredible desserts and great atmosphere. Just can't say enough great things about John Stevens. The down side of staying at the Wharf are the staff which are not very friendly are helpful and the cost of the room. The hotel lacks the amenities that the other fine hotels offer. Overall I would say you Henderson's Wharf is a great place to stay.
You will never want to leave!!!
