Embassy Suites Hotels announced the arrival of the upscale hotel brand's third property in the state of Maryland, the Embassy Suites Baltimore-Downtown. After undergoing renovation, the newly-converted property now includes multiple new and re-conceptualized amenities for business and leisure travelers in the downtown Baltimore area.
Embassy Suites Baltimore-Downtown, formerly Tremont Suites Hotel, was developed as a joint venture between Garrison Investment Group and Chartres Lodging Group, and is managed by Kokua Hospitality. The 37-story hotel has 300 remodeled guestrooms with modernized bathrooms and wet bars, newly designed lobby and guest public areas, an outdoor pool and a new food and beverage outlet, B'more Bistro and Lounge.
On top of a more contemporary look and feel at the Embassy Suites Baltimore-Downtown, amenities include complimentary hot, cooked-to-order breakfast each morning, nightly Complimentary Evening Reception and guestrooms with a wet bar, microwave, mini-fridge and coffee maker. Guestrooms will also be equipped with flat-screen high-definition TVs. The property offers a complimentary fitness center, business center and seasonal outdoor pool.
For the always-connected traveler, the addition of an e-lounge to the property allows guests to relax, while still staying "wired" as needed. Within the lounge, complimentary Wi-Fi and computer work stations are available. Visitors may also use a communal table setting.
The hotel property includes the Grand Historic Venue, with 45,000 square feet of meeting space and pre-function space with 19 banquet rooms across five floors. Situated adjacent to the Embassy Suites Baltimore-Downtown, the venue offers a setting for meetings and conventions, weddings, and social functions. The Grand Historic Venue has been recognized as a top wedding venue in the Mid-Atlantic, receiving five stars from The Knot and Wedding Wire, as well as a Brides Maryland 2011 editor's choice for Best Reception Site.
Among the 19 classical meeting rooms, all fully wired and updated for meetings, three ballrooms offer particularly memorable backdrops for any event. The Marble Room on the first floor presents a ballroom space with original stained-glass windows; the Roman Strada on the second floor takes inspiration from an Egyptian tomb and is decorated with murals depicting common Masonic themes; and the Corinthian Room, also on the second floor, combines chandeliers and gilded columns.
With the conversion of Tremont Suites Hotel to the Embassy Suites Baltimore-Downtown, the property also unveiled the hotel's new food and beverage outlet, B'more Bistro and Lounge. Diners can expect flavors of the Chesapeake Bay at the 4,000-square-foot, 200-seat restaurant located on the second floor. Signature menu items include Old Bay Bloody Mary's, Chesapeake Crab Sliders, and Rockfish Risotto. In August 2013, guests will also be able to enjoy coffee beverages at the new onsite Starbucks.
