The Baltimore Sun reviews the latest Kimpton property:
Hotel Monaco Baltimore, a $65 million, 202-room “luxury boutique” hotel, opens today inside the former Baltimore & Ohio Railroad headquarters at 2 N. Charles St. This is the first property in Baltimore managed by San Francisco-based Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, a company with a devoted following of business and leisure travelers. Kimpton established its Monaco brand for upscale hotels created inside historic structures such as the B&O Building, which dates to 1906. “This building wants to be a hotel,” said Monaco general manager Michael Damion. “Sometimes you run into a lot of roadblocks and an old building starts to fight you. But this building opened up its arms to us.” – from Baltimore
