Hotel Indigo Baltimore Downtown is located in the heart of the city, our uniquely designed hotel is one of a kind; and we want your experience to be as personalized as possible. Hotel Indigo offers all the amenities you have come to expect in an upscale, independent, boutique hotel. From our complimentary wireless internet to the full service restaurant and service that is second to none. Let us help you make our visit more enjoyable, helping you to get to know our neighborhood, we will recommend some fantastic independent restaurants and help you find your way, like a native. Walking down the cobblestone sidewalks, skirted by rows of elegant brownstones, ornamental wrought-iron gates and manicured greenery, it's impossible not to be enamored by the timelessness and quirkiness of Mt. Vernon. Between the architecture, marble and monuments, you might think you've been transported to turn-of-the-century Europe. But behind the conventional facade, a lively eccentricity radiates from nearby Johns Hopkins, and it's anything but old fashioned. In face, this neighborhood has always been a forward-thinking place, defined early on by a dynamic network of social clubs. We're talking about the city's movers and shakers - the bankers, presidents, preservationists - and they gathered often in the name of culture, cocktails and creativity. You could say it all began with George Peabody's institute, which ignited the cultural movement of the 19th-century Baltimore. Housing over 300,000 volumes, it's easy to see how the "Cathedral of Books" was the catalyst for dozens of cultural clubs that soon shaped the community. Modern scholars stood on the checkerboard marble floor in awe, staring up at the six stories of hardback knowledge wrapped in intricate ironwork. Often times, club members were so inspired by the Peabody's string aesthetic they hired many of the same craftsmen to design their own breathtaking gathering places just steps away from the institute. Here, at the center of Mt. Vernon's social scene, you can see a lady reaching for her delicate perfume bottle, about to play hostess to Baltimore's elite. Mingling downstairs, a gentleman raises his glass, welcoming his distinguished guests. The opulent drawing rooms of these stately homes were a nice fit for the club craze sweeping through Mt. Vernon. Whether you were interested in German lore, literature or laying bricks, there was a club for it. At one point The New York Times declared, "Baltimore has club fever!" From five-course holiday feasts to festive performances by the Vagabond Players theater group, the great windows of the many clubs offered glimpses for passersby, as they still do. One group enjoyed attention way more than the others. Easily the most colorful of the bunch, The Charcoal Club, was founded with an independent streak on the fringe of conservative culture by artists who were fond of drawing from live models, as they did in Paris. This club particularly enjoyed practical jokes, poker nights and feisty battles with the Baltimore Museum of Art. They went so far as to invent an artist, I.L. Glutz, who like today's Banksy, was never seen, but whose paintings were discovered mysteriously several times a year, usually in alleys or attics around town. So, a slightly twisted love of art brought them together, and their individuality set them apart. It's with today's generation of social renegades that the essence and energy of Mt. Vernon's club culture lives on. Even though time seems to stand still in the unmovable bricks and cobblestones, these streets were paved with the intention of leading the way for those who live by their own rules. They are the new class of creatives, undeterred by those monumental shoes to fill and determined to do things their way.

Virginia Beach, Virginia1 contribution1 helpful vote
It was nice, I feel like it could’ve been cleaner. Thankfully I had a room with two beds & one of them had no stains on it (while the other, along with the towels, had brown & yellow stains on it). The floor could’ve been swept, I noticed large pieces of trash when checking in but the room was overall acceptable for the little time I was staying.

Beautiful room, almost perfect. Only complaint is that the mini fridge in the room is worthless. No space at all. The stuff on the very small shelf got frozen, the stuff in the freezer box part didn’t freeze. Hardly any usable space anyway. The room itself was great and beautiful.

My stay at the hotel would've received a higher rating if only for the fact that I'm being charged for a broken chair that I didn't even use. How in the world did I break it. Secondly the man at the front desk didn't even bother to let me know anything in my bill until I received notification that my credit card was over charged. The man at the front desk was extremely rude and proceeded to call the police on me as I tried to get an understanding of what the next steps were to dispute this matter he wouldn't even tell me.

Response from Jason Curtis, Owner at Hotel Indigo Baltimore Downtown
Responded 4 weeks ago
Dear Dani4eva, Thank you for your review. As we explained the day you were charged, the chair in your room was broken and discovered by housekeeping during their cleaning routine immediately after your departure. As a result, you were charged. You claim the chair was broken when you checked in, however, if that was the case, you failed to notify us. Further, we would have done exactly what we did in this case and housekeeping would have reported the broken chair. When a guest rents a room, they are responsible for any damages to the room. The reason the police had to be called was due to your behavior in the lobby, refusal to vacate the lobby and interfering with other guests of the hotel.
