I spent 2 glorious nights at the new Inn at the Black Olive in Baltimore, close to the Inner Harbor. It is a small new boutique hotel with fewer than 15 guest suites. Arriving at the inn the first night was as if I had been transported magically to the Mediterranean coast and was staying in a lovely private villa. The textures, colors and decor (including the vibrant soft handmade carpets) of the inn are natural and restful and soothe away all stress. The bed, linens, towels and other accoutrements are of the highest quality and wrap the guests in a bubble of luxury, comfort and peace. The bathroom is on a par with a spa with an enromous whirlpool bathtub and even larger shower. The flat screen tv did everything but jump off the wall and dance around the room. And of course the complimentary bottle of wine from the region after which your suite is named was most welcome.
And then there was the complimentary breakfast which was specially prepared with perfect eggs, with homemade fresh warm toast, homemade marmalade, goart cheese, strawberries and blueberries. To find such a feast with such attentive personal service at a hotel is remarkable in itself. That it was included in the room charge is amazing.
This is a hidden gem and very close to Johns Hopkins Hospital if you are visiting there.
