There Goes My Hero is thrilled to host our signature OctoberTaste event at the Lord Baltimore Hotel. The event will take place in the beautiful Versailles room, and guests will be able to enjoy food samplings from LB Tavern’s new menu among other food and drink pairings from local restaurants.
Not only are we thankful for their overwhelming support of OctoberTaste, but the Hotel also works to provide affordable housing options to Johns Hopkins Hospital patients.
Since it’s opening in 1928, the Lord Baltimore Hotel has held a prestigious partnership with Johns Hopkins to provide discounted rates to patients or patient-related guests. The discounted rate is offered at $99 and includes continental breakfast, access to the health club, parking, high-speed Wi-Fi, and most importantly, transportation to Johns Hopkins. The Hotel offers complimentary taxi vouchers to patients in need of transportation to and from the hospital.
For those requiring a longer stay and home-like atmosphere, the Hotel offers a one-bedroom or two-bedroom penthouses that are fully-furnished, fully equipped, spacious, and offer aerial views of the city. The hotel also has well-appointed rooms with kitchenettes that make patients feel like a home away from home.
The level of customer service and accommodations is simply unparalleled. With patients coming in from all over the world to receive treatment at Johns Hopkins, it is crucial to find housing that is welcoming, comforting and makes their experience that much less scary – and that is exactly what they find at the Lord Baltimore Hotel.
“We pride ourselves on being a home away from home and a one-stop-shop for travelers and patients in Baltimore”, says Hannah Wyper, a Sales Manager at the Lord Baltimore Hotel. The Hotel is located in the heart of downtown Baltimore, which means guests are within walking distance of all of the museums, attractions, and all the fine-dining experiences that the city of Baltimore has to offer.
This historical establishment is known for being a cultural hub in and of itself. If patients are unable to travel or participate in tourist activities, they can still get the complete Baltimore experience without ever leaving the hotel. One of the most popular initiatives is known as “Take Over Tuesdays”, in which local restaurants come in and take over the LB Skybar. In addition to the LB SkyBar, the hotel also features two more dining attractions on site: the LB Tavern, a classic hotel bar offers hand-crafted cocktails from small-batch distilleries, local Baltimore craft beer on tap, and locally sourced lunch and dinner menus, and LB Bakery, a contemporary coffee bistro features house-made breads and pastries as well as a full breakfast and lunch menu made daily with fresh local ingredients. Plus, the main attraction and venue for our OctoberTaste is the Versailles Ballroom – an unbelievably stunning replica of the windows of Versailles. Guests are also privy to a hidden authentic speakeasy in the back of the Versailles Ballroom.
Throughout the years, The Lord Baltimore Hotel has preserved its unique and historic character. Rubell Hotels, a family-owned business, purchased the Lord Baltimore Hotel in 2013. Since then, the hotel has undergone a top to bottom renovation and modernization, while preserving the original charm, theme, architecture, and detail of the original hotel. The Rubell family is known for owning one of the world’s largest private art collections. As a result, Lord Baltimore is furnished with 2500 original works of art in both guest rooms and public spaces. Fun fact: the brother of the current owner, the late Steve Rubell was the co-owner of the famed Studio 54 in New York City – a fan-favorite for many celebrities and internationally known people.
