For a recent interview we were asked the following questions, we hope that they may be of assistance to you.

Why do most travelers stay at your inn?

Our guests choose the Blue Door on Baltimore for our “Urban Location” and proximity to both Baltimore’s Inner Harbor district and Johns Hopkins Main Medical Campus. Many travelers commonly equate a Bed and Breakfast to small towns and back country Inn settings and are quite pleased to see one in the city. We also do receive many repeat Baltimore visitors who after staying at a hotel previously are out to explore Baltimore’s many neighborhoods.

What are you best known for? What makes your inn unique? What do you love most about your inn?

Our location sets us apart from most lodging opportunities in Baltimore City. We are close to everything but occupy a neighborhood feel. A 6 to 8 block gets you access to everything Baltimore has to offer with a quiet relaxed neighborhood setting away from the hub-bub of busy city activities and tourist venues. We also provide an “Authentic Baltimore” experience with our famous row house architecture.

If someone has never been to your city, what is the #1 reason to come visit?

Most visitors will come to Baltimore to experience our Inner Harbor area with lots of great museums, the Aquarium, Festivals, great restaurants, festivals, and things to do. It’s is also the home of Camden Yards our Baseball stadium and M&T Ravens Stadium, home of our Super Bowl Champions. During Baseball season, when the New York Yankees and Boston Red sox come to town the entire city is sold out. We can offer a weekend Baseball experience for almost the cost of a single game for a couple in those cities.

What’s the best compliment you have ever received about the inn?

The best complement we receive is that we really do measure up to our business tag line. Casual Elegance by the Harbor.

What’s the best kept secret about the area?

The best kept secret about Baltimore is that our city is made up of many unique neighborhoods each with their own hidden gems. We are a 3 block walk from Patterson Park, on of Baltimore’s largest city parks. It was recently written up in Forbes Magazine as one of America’s top 10 revitalized parks. Walk a few more blocks and you are in Fells Pint with over 60 eateries and one of Baltimore’s true gems, our Water Taxi. For a single fee raid all day and get to visit Fort McHenry, and all of the Inner Harbor Neighborhoods and attractions. For guest only visiting Baltimore for a day or 2 the Water Taxi is the best ticket in town.,/div>

If a traveler is staying at your inn for 4 nights, what should he/she do in the area?

Visit the Inner Harbor using the Water Taxi as a day trip, Take in Baseball game at Camden Yards, Visit the Aquarium, Check out some of Baltimore’s great museums (Baltimore Museum of Art, Walter Art Museum, American Visionary Art Museum, The B&B Railroad Museum, Civil War Museum, Frederic Douglas Museum, Ships Museum to name just a few), have Baltimore Crab Cake (everyone will have their own favorite choice spot). Maybe take a day trip to Annapolis to check out the naval Academy. Washington D.C is just 45 minutes by train away. Take the Heritage Walk Tour, visit Edgar Alan Poe’s grave site and museum, or maybe an evening ghost tour (3 to choose from).

">Is there anything within walking distance of your inn?

Being an “Urban Location” most everything is very easy walking distance from the Blue Door We are in close to Baltimore’s Inner Harbor district just 8 blocks from Fells Point and access to the Water Taxi system to access the entire Inner Harbor. Also our Baltimore Circulator (Free) Bus System is a short 6 block walk away. and Johns Hopkins Main Medical Campus. Many travelers commonly equate a Bed and Breakfast to small towns and back country Inn settings and are quite pleased to see one in the city. We also do receive many repeat Baltimore visitors who after staying at a hotel previously are out to explore Baltimore’s many neighborhoods.

What is your favorite restaurant/food in the area?

When in Baltimore you must have Blue Crab. It is the start of the city, be it as a crab cake or cracking them with a mallet. There are all kinds of options usually with seafood as the star of the menu. Some neighborhoods feature foods of ethnicity in Little Italy and Greek town, small eateries of Fells point and Canton with special Irish Pub Settings and upscale establishments in Harbor East, The Inner Harbor and Mount Vernon. Our two neighborhood Restaurants The life of Reilly (an Iris Pub) and Salt Tavern (American Bistro) are also our favorites just a few steps away from the Blue Door on Baltimore.

How many rooms does your inn have?

We have 3 King Rooms, featuring private paths with soaking tubs, and separate spacious showers. Two of our rooms also feature outdoor balconies for soaking up the sun and the sights and sounds of our neighborhood.

Do you accept pets?

We do not accept pets as our on-site Bengal cat does not allow the innkeepers to get a good night’s sleep when he know there is someone he may have opportunity to play with. We have a Pet hotel located within a 5 minute drive from our property.,/div>
