< UNITED STATES | BALTIMORE: Lord Baltimore Hotel
The Lord Baltimore Hotel, the iconic grand dame of Baltimore opened its doors on December 30, 1928. The 23-story hotel was designed by architect William Lee Stoddart, in the French Renaissance style. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982, the hotel was visited by Martin Luther King, Jr. among a host of other historic luminaries.
Neglected for decades, the Lord Baltimore Hotel was acquired in March 2013 by Rubell Hotels, a family-owned business devoted to transforming architecturally significant historic hotels into affordable
cultural hubs. Rubell Hotels immediately embarked on a multi-million dollar top-to-bottom renovation.
New York designer Scott Sanders, formerly of the Ralph Lauren interior design department, was brought on for the redesign. Sanders reimagined every inch of the hotel, including the 10,000 square-foot grand Calvert Ballroom; the French Kitchen, a modern French bistro housed in the famous Versailles Room; the LB Tavern, an iconic lobby bar, and the LB Bakery, a contemporary coffee house filled with freshly baked goods.
Today, the 440-room property in the heart of Baltimore, with 20,000 square-feet of ballroom and meeting space, as well as the historic Calvert Ballroom which has hosted over 80 years of Baltimore society events, is restored to its full grandeur and glory for a new generation of travelers.
