Sinking into Cozy Comfort at a Boutique Hotel in Baltimore
Road warriors and sweethearts alike will appreciate the open fireplaces and marble whirlpools at the 1840s Carrollton Inn in downtown Baltimore. The boutique B&B on Albemarle Street is Charm City at its most charming, chock-full of woven rugs, gilded artwork, elegantly carved antique wardrobes, and canopied beds. The collection of luxurious rooms and suites tucked into connected row houses is right next to Little Italy, and a short walk from Fells Point and The Inner Harbor. Today, the inn is an oasis of cushy urban comfort, and on a balmy Balmer evening the brick courtyard feels a little like the New Orleans French Quarter. But these walls have seen more than their share of American drama over the ages, housing saloons, sweatshops, a distillery, and the deathbed of Charles Carroll of Carrollton—the last surviving signatory to the American Declaration of Independence.
