I lived in the DC/Maryland area for four years and loved it. Maryland is unique. In one state, you can enjoy a variety of vacation settings, from the ocean to the harbor to luxury and budget city offerings.
If you like beach vacations, stay at the Tidelands Caribbean Hotel and Suites. Located in Ocean City on the boardwalk, this suite hotel has all the great amenities you look for by the ocean side. Suite rooms, steps from the Atlantic Ocean, offer full kitchens and multiple bedroom options, perfect for large groups and family vacations. When you think of boardwalk, Atlantic City, and Jersey Shores are well known, but Ocean City’s Boardwalk is just as entertaining. The boardwalk dates back to 1902. If you’ve never done the boardwalk thing, check it out. It offers many excellent restaurants and bars. In the summer, you’ll see tourists sampling the salt water taffy, riding the rides, and trying their luck at the carnival games. The atmosphere makes for a cool family experience steps away from the Tidelands Hotel.

My favorite spot in Maryland is the Baltimore Inner Harbor. Located in the eastern part of the city, the Harbor offers fun and excitement Maryland style. Located in the middle of it all is the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court. Minutes from fantastic seafood restaurants, make sure you try the crabs. The Harborside offers views that are beautiful at night. For the sports fan, Camden Yards is a must see. If you visit during the season, grab some cheap seats and enjoy a hot dog, a beer, and the game. Even in the off-season, the stadium has a cool old-school vibe that you need to check out.
Luxury in the City
Built in 1906, Hotel Monaco offers another sort of old-school, sophisticated luxury that abounds in this Baltimore City hotel. The hotel itself is an attraction with its marble staircases and crystal chandeliers. The lobby is awe-inspiring, and the rooms are no different. Geared toward the old and young, the in-room Xbox will occupy the kids while the adults partake in yoga or spend time at the world-class spa. Don’t miss out on the complimentary glass of wine by the fire before stepping out to enjoy the city nightlife.
Budget in the City

The Best Western’s Baltimore Star is a budget friendly option in downtown Baltimore. The rooms are huge and comfortable. The hotel offers rooms and suites. As the closest hotel to the Baltimore Cruise Terminal, it’s a favorite spot for the cruise crowd. It offers complimentary shuttles to some of Baltimore’s well-known attractions, like the Inner Harbor, Camden Yards, and several local museums. The hotel offers options for business travelers as well. The conference center is a perfect place for business meetings and events.The in-hotel restaurant, The Tradewinds, provides guests with free breakfast daily.
Maryland is an exciting city with attractions and activities for every type of traveler.
