You’ll find lots to love at Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore, but these are the things that truly take the cake:
1. Polished — yet friendly — service. Baltimore isn’t called Charm City for nothing. When we visited the Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore we were highly impressed by service at the hotel, where it seemed that everyone knew our name and genuinely cared about our needs and interests.
2. Fantastic spa facilities. Definitely take some time to book a massage or facial at the hotel spa, located on the fourth floor. Or, if you’re pressed for time, at least take advantage of the “heat experiences” in the locker room, which include a shower with six different settings from mist to deluge, a spacious sauna, a bubbling vitality pool with metal lounge beds, and a gorgeous mosaic tile steam room whose ceiling lights change colors every few seconds.
3. Wit & Wisdom. Michael Mina’s restaurant offers fine dining fare with Southern and regional accents in a casual setting. Don’t miss the shrimp and grits for breakfast, the crab-stuffed deviled eggs as a snack and the visually stunning beet and goat cheese salad at dinner. And definitely save room for dessert — pastry chef Chris Ford recently won Food & Wine magazine’s People’s Best New Chef award.
4. A near perfect pool (for a city hotel). Although it’s not a notably large body of water, we love the infinity pool located on the hotel’s fourth floor terrace and the great poolside service. In addition to standard amenities like chair set-up assistance and towels, the staff will automatically bring you glasses of water as well as treats like frozen grapes to stay hydrated on Baltimore's hot summer days. Don’t fancy a swim? Check out the whirlpool or reflection pool instead, both located on the fifth floor terrace.
5. Cool, contemporary style. From the floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook Baltimore’s Inner Harbor to the chic light fixtures in the Lamill Coffee outpost on the ground floor to the Washington Color School artwork in the lobby, we adore the chic, modern feel of the hotel and especially the public spaces that possess a streamlined, Scandinavian look without being twee. Like its Harbor East neighborhood, Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore is pushing the boundaries of high style in a good way.
