Hotel Help

Planning a trip to see a yankee/oriole game and trying to find a hotel. The inner harbor is just to expensive. Any recommendations for a nice hotel near the light rail so I don't have to drive into the city?

I have reservations now at the Westin BWI Airport but I can change them.

Also how late does the light rail run. Its a saturday night game in August.

You might try looking north of the city, around the Maryland State Fairgrounds; there are several options. I believe the Fairgrounds has a website with such info. It is on the light rail. The website for the latter is www.mtamaryland.com

Have you really looked for a downtown hotel, Brookshire, Residence Inn, Homewood Suites by Hilton? You should be able to find a place for under a hundred dollars in the Inner Harbor. I can't believe it is more expensive than a Westin at the airport. Although using the light rail to the airport or Timoniuim is an option, you would have a much better "Baltimore" experience if you stayed downtown.

If you still have no luck with a less expensive hotel in downtown, I would recommend Hunt Valley. Sits right on the light rail and has a alrge shopping and restaurant complex there. Wegmans, some national chain places like Damon's. It's a very safe suburban area. But as previous writer states there is nothing like staying downtown and going to some of the pubs/bars before and after game.

"You should be able to find a place for under a hundred dollars in the Inner Harbor. "

Supply and demand. There are not going to be too many 100-dollar rooms in the Inner Harbor area on a summer weekend when the Orioles are playing the Yankees. But, with the lack of business travlers on an August weekend, there are probably plenty of bargains to be had at hotels around the airport.

spasternack, it would be helpful if you would post your budget for the hotel. "just to (sic) expensive" doesn't really describe the budget.

Read my hotel thread. I just got the Westin BWI for $85 a night on Hotwire. I can help you with Hotwire if you aren't familiar with it.

The Westin is listed on Hotwire in the Airport BWI zone, as 4*, with the following amenities: Shuttle, Pool, Fitness, Business, Restaurant, Internet Access.
