Following a $1 million renovation, the 66-room Pier 5 Hotel in Baltimore is now a Curio Collection by Hilton property. The boutique hotel on the city's Inner Harbor has a large amount of event space for its size in the form of two ballrooms, four meeting rooms and an outdoor terrace for a total of 7,400 square feet of space.
 
"The bustling Inner Harbor has long been Baltimore's hub of tourism, nightlife and business, and Pier 5 Hotel Baltimore provides the perfect vantage point for curious travelers to see and do it all," said Mark Nogal, global head of the Hilton brand. "Like each Curio Collection property, Pier 5 Hotel Baltimore authentically embodies the unique culture and spirit of the city it calls home."
 
The hotel offers dining at two established restaurants, a Ruth's Chris Steak House and McCormick & Schmick's Steak & Seafood. The hotel also hosts culinary experiences throughout the week, including hands-on cooking demonstrations, food-and-beverage tastings, "Crabby Hour" Monday through Friday and chocolate hour on Saturdays.
 
"Pier 5 Hotel Baltimore has a unique character unlike any hotel in Baltimore, offering business and leisure visitors a front-row view to all that the city and the Inner Harbor have to offer," said Daniel Tadros, the hotel's general manager. "With our renovation now complete and as part of Curio Collection by Hilton, we are delighted to welcome guests and locals alike to the refreshed and distinctive Pier 5 Hotel."
