Facility Description: The Lord Baltimore Hotel, the iconic grand dame of Baltimore, has been brought back to its full grandeur and glory. Rubell Hotels has reimagined this classic landmark for a new generation of travelers.

The Lord Baltimore was originally built in 1928 by architect William Lee Stoddart. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was visited by Martin Luther King, Jr. among a host of other historic luminaries. It is a 23-story, 440-room property in the heart of downtown Baltimore, Maryland with 20,000 square-feet of ballroom and meeting space and the historic Calvert Ballroom, which has hosted over 80 years of Baltimore society events.

Rubell Hotels acquired the Lord Baltimore Hotel in March 2013 and immediately embarked on a multi-million dollar top-to-bottom renovation. New York designer Scott Sanders, formerly of the Ralph Lauren interior design department, was brought on for the redesign. Sanders, who has worked with Rubell Hotels on numerous other projects, including the acclaimed Beach House Bal Harbour, has brought a modern private-club aesthetic to both the oversized hotel rooms and the impressive public spaces. He has reimagined every inch of the hotel, including the 10,000 square-foot grand Calvert Ballroom; the French Kitchen, a modern French bistro housed in the famous Versailles Room; the LB Tavern, an iconic lobby bar, and the LB Bakery, a contemporary coffee house filled with freshly baked goods.

Rubell Hotels is a family-owned business devoted to transforming architecturally significant historic hotels into affordable cultural hubs. Previous Rubell Hotels projects include the Albion Hotel in Miami Beach, Beach House Bal Harbour, Greenview South Beach and the Capitol Skyline Hotel in Washington, D.C. While guests of Rubell Hotels include luminaries from the fields of art, fashion, music and food, from Beyonce to Jeff Koons, the Rubell Family’s core belief is that hotels should simultaneously offer affordable great design and friendly unpretentious service. Hotels should be a comfortable background for guests to express themselves and explore the city around them. The Rubell family -- whose Rubell Family Collection in Miami is widely acknowledged as one of the top contemporary art museums in the world -- is known for its talent in discovering emerging artists, emerging cities, neglected architectural gems, and emerging neighborhoods. The Rubells believe deeply that the key to the economic success of a city is dependent on its cultural relevance.
