Hilton Baltimore & Towers

20 West Baltimore Street

The Elegant Hilton Baltimore & Towers www.hilton.com/hotels/BWIBHHF/index.html is a registered historical landmark, built in 1928, which has been beautifully restored to its original ambiance. From the hotel it is a four block walk to:

Baltimore’s Inner Harbor

Federal Hill www.encorebaltimore.org/neighbor/federal.html Federal Hill overlooks the Inner Harbor and is a ten minute walk from Harborplace. During the Civil War , Federal troops occupied the hill and trained their canon on the city whose loyalty to the North was in some doubt. Federal Hill Park provides a spectacular view of the Inner Harbor and downtown skyline. Federal Hill is a neighborhood, as well as a hill, primarily of brick, late 19th Century row houses, many of which have been rehabbed in the past 15-20 years.

Little Italy Just east of Harborplace, this is an area of Italian groceries, bakeries, and restaurants.

Fell’s Point http://www.fells-point.com/index.html Feisty and independent, Fell’s Point has stayed true to its gritty, working class, maritime roots for over 200 years. Today it is a waterfront community of colorful people, historic buildings, and unique character that retains a deep sense of its rich past. It has a splendid collection of 18th and 19th century homes and warehouses, and an abundance of saloons, narrow streets, funky shops, inns, and coffee houses. The television series, "Homicide," was filmed here. Fell’s Point can be reached by water taxi from Harborplace.

Mt. Vernon Place www.baltimore1.com/CityTour/Communities/Mount_Vernon/mount_vernon.html

The neighborhood of the rich during the late 19th and early 20th century, Mt. Vernon boasts many buildings that are the work of prominent architects of the time: Robert Mills, Stanford White and John Russell Pope.
