  • Great Harbor East location close to high-end shopping and dinning

  • Massive spa with 11 treatment rooms and a variety of facilities

Bottom Line

The luxe, 256-room waterfront hotel is everything you'd expect from a Four Seasons property, from the impeccable service to the sophisticated interiors. Rooms are spacious and refined, with soaking tubs, floor-to-ceiling windows, high-tech amenities, and in most cases, harbor views. The property has an almost resort-like feel, thanks to the massive spa and gorgeous rooftop pool deck. It's the most luxurious option in Baltimore, but some may find the room decor a tad too generic for a hotel in this price range.

Scene

A modern Four Seasons property in a waterfront neighborhood

The hotel, billed as an "urban retreat" sits on a cul-de-sac overlooking the harbor in the devloping Harbor East area

The Four Seasons Baltimore opened in 2011 in the recently developed area of Harbor East. The hotel sits at the tip of a cul-de-sac overlooking a pristine marina and harbor. The hotel bills itself as an urban retreat, and this is is a fitting description, thanks to the hotel's relaxed location, outdoor pool deck, and enormous luxury spa.

Inside the hotel, hand-blown chandeliers and an expansive art collection -- the largest in Baltimore outside of a gallery -- help create a sophisticated vibe. The towering glass building allows for incredible harbor views from most of the guestrooms and facilities, and they're particularly stunning from the rooftop pool deck.

Location

Located around high-end shopping, with industrial Baltimore across the water

Map of Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore

The Four Seasons is located between rows of high-end shops and fine dining in the recently developed East Harbor area. The hotel sits just in front of a marina and overlooks a harbor; on the other side of the water, visitors will find older warehouses and factories as well as touristy museums and attractions. While the immediate area is extremely developed, the historic Fell's Point neighborhood and the restaurant district of Little Italy are within walking distance.

Because of the hotel's waterfront location, water taxis are available a few blocks from the hotel, an easy way to get across the harbor and right to the center of the action.

  • 5-minute drive to the Maryland Science Center
  • 6-minute walk to Pier Six Pavilion
  • 6-minute drive to the Baltimore Convention Center
  • 7-minutes to the American Visionary Arts Museum
  • 7-minute drive to Oriole Park at Camden Yards, home of the Baltimore Orioles
  • 8-minute drive to M&T Bank Stadium, home of the Baltimore Ravens
  • 11-minute walk to the National Aquarium
  • 11-minute drive to the Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum
  • 19-minute drive to the Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport

The Mina Group, which he heads with tennis star Andre Agassi, operate the three distinct on-site restaurants, all popular with both hotel guests and locals.

  • Wit + Wisdom serves New American cuisine in an industrial tavern setting, centered around a live-fire grill. The restaurant has outdoor seating, with great sunset views over the water, as well as a private dining space. The wood fire smell penetrates the entire building, even into the spa.
  • Lamill Coffee, which extends into Wit + Wisdom toward the front of the hotel, serves grab-and-go deli items as well as European-style coffees.
