Four Seasons Baltimore is a good example of that old adage “the hotel was so great, we didn’t want to leave!” And, well, to be honest, we didn’t. The. Entire. Time. We. Were. There. Because it’s awesome. Sure, we went up to the super quirky Hampden neighborhood (the inspiration for many John Waters films) but that didn’t last long, thanks to our Four Seasons withdrawals
While the hotel in Harbor East opened back in February, not all the amenities were complete. Thankfully, when we visited last week, everything was up and running, including the Splash Terrace, which includes a heated infinity pool, chaise lounge chairs, an upper deck with cabanas and hot tub and bar. This is the only “urban oasis” in the city. We should also add that Pabu, the first celebrity-chef restaurant in the city (a collaboration between Michael Mina and Ken Tominaga) also opened, treating us to some incredible sushi and Asi
an-inspired cocktails. If we weren’t getting our saki on, you could find us chillin’ in Lamill Coffee or hanging out with A-Rod and Jeter in the fancy lobby (not really, but they were staying there when we checked in).
Another reason to be a Four Seasons Baltimore junkie? Some of the rooms have their own terraces looking over the harbor. This is the first for Baltimore (hotels with private balconies), and a rarity for city-center Four Seasons hotels. We’re sold.
