Rachael's Dowry B&B is absolutely gorgeous. The attention to detail and the furnishings are unbelievable besides having a warm friendly place to stay. We are going back every time the Texas Rangers play the Orioles in Baltimore.

Great location-on a quiet street but within walking distance of the Inner Harbour.
Our room was more like suite-looked out onto the "graden" with the outdoor seating-ready for a morning coffee there.
Breakfast-home cooked eggs-very tasty-perhaps one other choice would have been nice.
Tish was extremely helpful when we were booking/making reservations as needed to know if suitable for 83 year old to stay who has trouble with stairs-kept in touch after too.

My wife and I went for a weekend getaway for our 25th anniversary. It was a great choice and I highly recommended it! Great location and within walking distance to just about everything. The proprietor, Norman, is a real gentleman. Great breakfast, which he prepares, and the best cookies for evening tea. The entire house (late 1700's) has been entirely refurbished and is beautiful. It's a wonderful place, very clean and tidy with cozy rooms and great service. Our bathroom was a little small, but you can only do so much with a house that's this old; not a big sacrific for the quality of the Inn. We will go back and those thinking about going can't go wrong with this B&B.

We chose Rachael's Dowry for our first Baltimore visit, jumping the Light Rail at the airport. The 10 minute walk takes you away from the stadium and high-rise hotels into a quiet, historic residential area. The house, which was built in 1798, has been restored with great taste and quality. We stayed 2 nights in the second floor Odorian room, which overlooked the inner courtyard. A gas fireplace complemented the comfortable 4 poster king bed. We enjoyed browsing the books in the library in the evening, while sampling the honey brandy. It's a great location to get all over the city on the free Circulator bus - about a 10 minute walk from the B & B. Tish and Norman are very welcoming and helpful, and they personally serve a homemade breakfast in the dining room. Another guest was attending an event at the Convention Center, so it's a more peaceful and personal alternative to the nearby chain hotels. Our ONLY complaint is the bed pillows were too firm and plush, but we did find one smaller pillow in the closet the second night.

Room Tip: There is no elevator, so make sure you can carry your suitcases up 1 or 2 flights. Odorian has 2 s...

I found Rachel's Dowry online and stayed for a conference that was held at the nearby Hilton Hotel. It was so much better than a hotel! The room and home are beautiful and extremely comfortable; it is located in a neighborhood, but within 2 blocks of the Hilton and other conference hotels. Norman was so helpful and kind! The breakfasts were fresh and delicious and beautiful! It was safe and easy to walk back and forth at night to the conference. It had more amenities than the Hilton, including a gas fireplace in my room, a large bathtub and separate large shower, free wifi, fresh cookies, and more. I recommend it highly and without reservation!

Room Tip: All the rooms I saw were beautiful!

I was very pleased with every aspect of this B&B. The innkeepers, Tish and Norman, are very genuine, curteous and thoughtful. The rooms were clean and elegant, and the breakfasts, which varied from day to day, were great. There are other ammenities like wine in the evenings, and free WiFi. The location is ideal being walking distance to Camden Yards, the convention center, tons of restaurants and the Inner Harbor. As a business traveler I prefer to stay somewhere historic and well-cared for by local owners rather than an ordinary, corporate hotel. I recommend anyone traveling to Baltimore for business or fun give Rachael's Dowry a try and I think you'll feel the same way.
