The Ivy: Baltimore, MD TravelAnne Hotel Checklist

Updated: Feb 16

This Relais et Chateaux is a jewelbox of a hotel that is the “passion project” of Eddie and Sylvia Brown who are local entrepreneurs in the Baltimore area. The attention to detail and mix of both contemporary flair with antique period pieces from the era in which the hotel was built adds up to being a winning formula!

Arrival Experience: You are greeted at the front door by a

valet who key cards you in to the arrival

lobby to wait for the concierge who will

then give you a tour of the property and

escort you to your room. The service is

personalized for each guest and only

guests can get beyond the arrival lobby

unless they have a dinner reservation.

Cleanliness: Hand sanitizer was strategically placed

all around the hotel including the

elevator. No one else was allowed in the

elevator at the same time. Once a room

was cleaned and sanitized after a

guests departure it is sealed off until the

next arrival. We were not allowed to see

any of the room product out of a

preponderance of caution.

Rooms: Although we couldn’t see the rooms we

know that each one is different and has

unique décor.

Service: 10 out of 10

Mini Bar: Fully stocked and complimentary

What Do You Brag About: The Magdalena Restaurant and Robert M
