Which hotel in Inner Harbor with a 5 yr old???

I'm trying to plan a weekend getaway in March for my husband, our 5 yr old and myself before our second baby arrives. I have not been to Baltimore in almost 10yrs so I'm sure alot may have changed. When I went previously we stayed at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront. It was very nice but felt like we had to walk quite a bit to get to places/things in the inner harbor. This time I was thinking of maybe staying at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace because I thought maybe it was a bit more convenient in walking distance to places. Do you think that is the better choice or should I stay at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront or do you recommend any other hotel that is in the heart of it all?

Also, what would you recommend as "must do" or "must see" things for us to do. We are planning from March 11-13th.

The area around the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront - Harbor East - has really been developed in the past few years. The hotel is a relatively easy walk to the Inner Harbor attractions for an adult, but it may feel a bit longer with a little one. The Renaissance is very central and a great choice. In a similar location/price point, you might also want to look into the InterContinental Harbor Court.

There is so much to do in Baltimore and "must-sees" will certainly be different for everyone. With a five year old, I would highly recommend the National Aquarium and the Visionary Arts Museum. Maybe dinner in Little Italy one night as well. I'm sure others will have additional great suggestions. Have fun!

If you like Marriott's, then the one in Harbor East is nice. Also Pier V Hotel is right on the water.
