US-based Rubell Hotels has announced that it has completed its restoration of the Lord Baltimore Hotel, which it acquired in March 2013.
Built in 1928, the 23-storey Lord Baltimore Hotel has 440 guest rooms and suites, more than 20,000ft² of event space, several dining and lounging spaces, and one of the city’s only rooftop event spaces.
The Lord Baltimore Hotel’s new look includes a large gold Murano glass chandelier, white columns and intimate groupings of mid-century inspired lounge seating. Interior designer Scott Sanders spearheaded the design, which typifies his ‘New American Style’.
Rubell Hotels said that complimentary high-speed internet is available throughout the hotel, as are 50in high-definition televisions with 60 complimentary HD channels.
The LB Tavern, just off of the lobby, is a communal gathering space where guests can have cocktails in a library-like setting. Seven large, multi-coloured Candida Hofer photographs of libraries of the world are featured throughout this space.
The Lord Baltimore Hotel’s 440 guest rooms and suites feature dark wood tones with clean lines, contemporary art, velvet drapes and plush mattresses. Every guest room includes a refrigerator, coffee maker, and digital safe and bedside charging station.
Four penthouses overlook the Lord Baltimore’s two rooftop areas and provide views of downtown Baltimore. The rooftop gardens and penthouses are also available for private events.
The updated Calvert Ballroom highlights the space’s original scenic murals, crystal Baccarat chandeliers, and six balconies.
The hotel features a signature restaurant, French Kitchen, and LB Bakery. In addition, it will have a signature gift shop, SideShow, an outpost of the American Visionary Art Museum’s museum shop.
Rubell Hotels will hold an official ribbon cutting ceremony on 27 March 2014 at the Lord Baltimore Hotel.
The Lord Baltimore Hotel is a member of Historic Hotels of America and is included in the National Register of Historic Places.
