You don’t have to worry about finding luxury accommodations in Baltimore any longer: the Four Seasons has (finally) come to town. Opened in November, the waterside Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore is in the trendy Harbor East neighborhood, known for its shops, restaurants and galleries and its primo location is within walking distance of historic areas Fells Point, Little Italy and Canton.
The hotel design is classic Four Seasons sophistication. Hand-blown Murano glass fixtures and an installation comprised of light and paper by artist John Wigmore are both prominently displayed in the lobby. Four Seasons didn’t skimp on the art either — it has the city’s largest art collection, featuring works by contemporary American and international artists (with special attention to those associated with the nearby Washington Color School).
Star chef/restauranteur Michael Mina gave Baltimore another first by opening his new eatery inside the hotel. Wit & Wisdom, A Tavern by Michael Mina has an open kitchen with a wood-burning oven, a rotisserie and classic Jefferson burners. Other eats include those from Lamill Coffee, the hotel’s all-day café and bistro, and Pabu — an izakaya-style Asian restaurant — which will open in February.
Bonus: You can get special rates starting at $279 if you book a stay before February 29, 2012.
