Additional hotel amenities include a state-of-the-art 24-hour fitness center and full-service business center, as well as the Renaissance brand's distinct guest experiences and programming. The hotel's central location is within walking distance of Baltimore's major attractions, including M&T Bank Stadium, Camden Yards, the National Aquarium, and the Baltimore Convention Center.

"We know and love the Renaissance brand. Renaissance invites business and leisure travelers alike to discover the unexpected.
