VINTAGE BALTIMORE ARCHITECTURE... Modern Urban Chic!
HISTORY OF THE INN
INN at 2920, a distinctively contemporary boutique Bed and Breakfast in downtown Baltimore since 2001, provides guests with a unique fusion of vintage Baltimore architecture with modern urban chic! Our comfortable and stylish blend of old and new is reflected in the decor of our 3,800 square foot corner row home as well as in our amenities.
2920 Elliott Street dates back to the 1880’s. For many years the building served as a tavern on the first floor, most notably The Blue Lantern, and as a Brothel upstairs! It’s true – the second and third floors included a matrix of 20 to 30 rooms, prior to renovations in the 1990’s. In fact, there was a small door in the alleyway that led to a limestone tiled vestibule with a ladder to the second floor – just imagine sailors sauntering up the hill from the port and sneaking in the back entrance…
That entrance and ladder are now gone, making way for the private bath of our two room suite on the first floor. Also gone are the sauntering sailors and the matrix of rooms. Now the building houses a tastefully renovated, comfortable, contemporary, and stylish boutique Bed and Breakfast in Baltimore that has to be experienced to be best appreciated. Why not find out for yourself?
The INN is located in Historic Canton, one of downtown Baltimore's most desirable neighborhoods. Described in the Baltimore Sun as a cross between Greenwich Village and Key West, Canton is a convenient option for Baltimore visitors because it is located less than a mile from popular Historic Fell's Point, 2 miles from the Inner Harbor, and just 2.5 miles from Baltimore's Convention Center. From shopping to gourmet dining, it is all within walking distance when you stay at INN at 2920 in downtown Baltimore, Maryland!
