The Pearl
Reviewed December 31, 2008

3 girlfriends in Baltimore for a long weekend. We really hadn't planned on spa-going, but one of us wanted a new haircut. We had no luck finding a salon downtown, so called here on advice from the concierge. we were able to make a friday nite appt.

The spa is located in the ritz residences, a short cabride from the harbor area. we therefore expected hoity-toity and excessively expensive-but it was neither. but do realize it is not a ritz hotel-there is neither bar nor restaurant to hang out in.

the other 2 of us thought we'd sit in the salon waiting area. but the staff insisted on showing us the spa and having us wait in the spa lounge. we were offered wine, champagne, fruit and brownies (oh-so good) while we reclined in chaises. they wrote down restaurant suggestions. i was so impressed i scheduled a massage for the following day. my friend enjoyed her haircut, which came with scalp treatment.

when i arrived the next morning, i also scheduled mini-facial and haircut. all the services were outstanding, and i took advantage of their december specials, and discount for hilton guests, so the cost was fairly tame.

ive been to many well-known spas (eg breakers, miraval, canyon ranch), and i have never been treated anywhere as attentively. it is this attention that truly makes one feel pampered and i will definitely return whenever i am in town.

only need-larger locker area
