Kinsley Construction to help Chesapeake Hospitality redevelop Mount Vernon Hotel

Chesapeake Hospitality announced the management and redevelopment of the Mount Vernon Hotel in Baltimore, Md. Located off W. Franklin Street, this historic landmark, currently known as the Mount Vernon Hotel, will be redeveloped into a 170-room Hotel Indigo. This property was the first YMCA in Baltimore, and transitioned into the Mount Vernon Hotel in 1907.

The new $20-million project is expected to start in the fall of this year with Kinsley Construction completing the renovation. The top to bottom renovation will impact every aspect of the building, including the lobby, restaurant, bar, guestrooms and meeting space. Design elements will be reflective of the area’s cultural heritage.

The hotel is located in the Mount Vernon neighborhood, recognized as the cultural hub of Baltimore and home to the Walters Art Museum, Center Stage Theater and the Peabody Conservatory for aspiring musicians, while also boasting dining and a nightlife scene. The hotel is within walking distance to the attractions of the Inner Harbor area, Oriole Park at Camden Yards, M&T Bank Stadium and the Baltimore Convention Center. The property has 1,200 square-feet of meeting room to accommodate up to 80 attendees as well as a 24-hour business center.
