MCLEAN, Va., June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Embassy Suites Hotels welcomes the arrival of the upscale hotel brand's third property in the state of Maryland, the Embassy Suites Baltimore-Downtown. After undergoing extensive renovation, the newly converted property now includes an array of exciting new and re-concepted amenities for business and leisure travelers alike in the thriving downtown Baltimore area.
"We're pleased to mark the official opening of our Baltimore-Downtown property," said John Rogers, global head of Embassy Suites Hotels. "As we're focused on growing the brand in urban markets, this is an excellent demonstration of how our flexible design approach can meet the needs of a downtown location."
Embassy Suites Baltimore-Downtown, formerly Tremont Suites Hotel, was developed as a joint venture between Garrison Investment Group and Chartres Lodging Group, and is managed by Kokua Hospitality, LLC. The 37-story hotel features 300 remodeled guestrooms with modernized bathrooms and wet bars, newly designed lobby and guest public areas, an outdoor pool, and a new food and beverage outlet, B'more Bistro and Lounge.
"We are thrilled to officially complete our transformation to an Embassy Suites hotel, which will help us create an even warmer and more hospitable environment for our guests," said James LoBosco, Managing Director of Embassy Suites Baltimore-Downtown. "We look forward to bringing the elevated and reliable services and guest satisfaction synonymous with the Embassy Suites brand to both business and leisure travelers looking for an upscale hotel option in the downtown Baltimore area."
On top of a more contemporary look and feel at the Embassy Suites Baltimore-Downtown, guests can indulge in the comfort and convenience of the signature amenities available at every Embassy Suites hotel. These include complimentary hot, cooked-to-order breakfast each morning, nightly Complimentary Evening Reception* and spacious guestrooms with wet bar, microwave, mini-fridge, and coffee maker. Guestrooms will also be equipped with flat-screen high-definition televisions. The property offers a complimentary fitness center, business center, and seasonal outdoor pool.
For the always-connected traveler, the addition of an e-lounge to the property allows guests to relax, while still staying "wired" as needed. Within the lounge, complimentary Wi-Fi and computer work stations are available for guests' use. Visitors may also enjoy a bite or cocktail in the cozy communal table setting.
MEETINGS AND EVENTS
The hotel property includes Baltimore's most opulent event center, the Grand Historic Venue, featuring 45,000 square feet of meeting space and pre-function space with 19 banquet rooms across five floors. Situated adjacent to the Embassy Suites Baltimore-Downtown, the venue offers a distinct setting for meetings and conventions, weddings, and social functions. The Grand Historic Venue has been recognized as a top wedding venue in the Mid-Atlantic, receiving five stars from The Knot and Wedding Wire, as well as a Brides Maryland 2011 editor's choice for Best Reception Site. The luxurious women's bathroom and lounge—showcasing nine types of marble, large columns and light fixtures, and hand-carved woodwork—has even been recognized as one of America's Best Bathrooms by Cintas.
Among the 19 classical meeting rooms, all fully wired and updated for meetings, three ballrooms offer particularly memorable backdrops for any event. The Marble Room on the first floor presents a distinguished ballroom space featuring original stained-glass windows; the Roman Strada on the second floor takes inspiration from the grandeur of an Egyptian tomb and is decorated with murals depicting common Masonic themes; and the grand Corinthian Room, also on the second floor, combines extravagant chandeliers and gilded columns.
FOOD AND BEVERAGE
With the conversion of Tremont Suites Hotel to the Embassy Suites Baltimore-Downtown, the property also unveils the hotel's new food and beverage outlet, B'more Bistro and Lounge. Diners can expect flavors of the Chesapeake Bay at the 4,000-square-foot, 200-seat restaurant located on the second floor. Signature menu items include Old Bay Bloody Mary's, Chesapeake Crab Sliders, and Rockfish Risotto. In August 2013, guests will also be able to enjoy coffee beverages at the new onsite Starbucks.
