When the boutique Ivy hotel opened in June 2015 it created quite a buzz. After four years of planning and extensive renovations, the former 19th century mansion in the Mount Vernon neighborhood of Baltimore was finally revealed.

A nice perk for guests is the hotel’s lobby-level conservatory and tea room which serves complimentary small bites and drinks. Immediately upon arrival travelers can enjoy a chilled glass of Pierre Laurent Champagne or a mixed drink while they check-in or consult with the concierge about the city’s attractions. In the winter, cozy up to one of several fireplaces with a copy of Baltimore Magazine to see what’s new in Charm City.

The 18 suites and guestrooms all come with large soaking tubs in the bathroom, heated limestone floors, gas fireplaces and lavish four-poster beds with Frette sheets. Room Fifteen sits in a quiet corner of the hotel and takes guests on a colorful story book trip with its whimsically-decorated space. The nine suites include the above plus a separate living room and some offer garden views, while others provide a look out onto the historic brownstones of Mount Vernon.

Onsite dining at The Ivy features Magdalena fine dining that recently graced the cover of Baltimore Magazine’s 50 Best Restaurants issue. Tuesday through Saturday enjoy a creative masterpiece from classically-trained chef Mark Levy. Choose from entrées like seared New Zealand Ora King Salmon with purple potatoes bravas, or gnocchi with tarragon and smoked butter. Breakfast is served in Magdalena, or in your room if you desire. Should you wish to dine off property, the hotel’s complimentary car and driver will take you anywhere in the city.

Rates begin at $525 a night.
