if you visited Baltimore during the 1970s, you may have been offered a bracelet for which you could purchase charms at local attractions. Though short-lived, this promotional gimmick earned the Maryland city an endearing and enduring nickname. Today, with more grace and beauty than you might expect, Charm City wins over tourists with a historic inner harbor, an eclectic art scene, and, since November, a Four Seasons hotel.

 

The Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore rises 18 stories over the city’s chic Harbor East neighborhood, within walking distance of the many restaurants and bars in the Fell’s Point historic district. The hotel itself offers a delectable range of dining options, from Wit and Wisdom, a Tavern by Michael Mina, which overlooks Baltimore’s waterfront, to an izakaya-style Japanese restaurant and an all-day café decorated in daguerreotype portraits of Baltimore native Edgar Allan Poe.

 

Visitors to the Four Seasons are greeted in the lobby by a grand staircase lit with Murano glass lamps and a massive paper installation by lighting artist John Wigmore. An 11-room spa features three suites (one for couples), while the 256 accommodations offer outdoor balconies, stone fireplaces, and harbor views.
