The Hotel Belvedere

The Hotel Belvedere designed by Parker & Thomas c. 1903 on East Chase Street in Baltimore, Maryland. The hotel was converted into condos in 1991. Click HERE for more on The Hotel Belvedere and HERE to see the hotel on google street view.

I have friends of friends who live in this building and I hear it's basically been gutted which is really sad. It really is a landmark in that area of the city.

However, the Belvedere website shows many grand interior spaces still intact and looking magnificent, from the lounges to the lobby to the ballroom. I presume the developers had to gut the former guest rooms in order to make adequate sized apartments and office spaces. Still a much much better solution than demolition. After seeing so many wonderful hotels posted on this site that no longer are extant, I consider this to be a happy compromise.

Marvelous building indeed---and how odd and bold are those huge corner chimneys on that formal Beaux Arts facade?

When people ask me where to go in Baltimore, I *always* recommend The Owl Bar. The place has real charm, and if you're just drinking, no real harm can come of it.

(The bar's name is explained at the bottom of the menu.)
