Scene

Historical harbor-side hotel with a courtyard and private marina

The lobby of this historical harborfront hotel has a elegant vibe, with classic decor and exposed brick

Housed in a tobacco factory from the 1800s, all 38 rooms of this boutique hotel are on the first floor (private condos are upstairs). The inn has a historical and elegant vibe, with warm hardwood floors, original exposed brick, and classic decor throughout the lobby.

At the center of the property is a garden courtyard with tables, where guests can sit and eat free continental breakfast. Next to the lobby are a well-equipped fitness center and a modest business center with one computer. A 256-slip, full-service marina lies just outside, creating a nice view from the harbor-facing guest rooms.

The free perks at Henderson’s Wharf are plentiful. A butler will help with luggage, run a hot bath, deliver chamomile tea, or provide turndown service. A daily wine hour is hosted in the lobby with snacks and house-made sangria, and nightcaps are offered before bedtime. The inn is also one downtown Baltimore’s only hotels to offer free parking, which adds up to significant savings over the course of a multi-day visit. Typical clientele includes couples, business types, and the occasional family. The hotel is situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, but is still a five-minute walk from the heart of Fell’s Point.
