Location and Rates for Tonight - Website The 1840s Carrollton Inn (<--- Wikipedia Entry) is a small, 13-room, boutique hotel located just north of Little Italy. Its rooms are priced lower than they would be if it weren't in a depressed micro-area (make no mistake: Although this charming inn is a 2-minute walk from the heart of Little Italy, it will give you a "cautious feel," especially when you park in their lot - immediately north of the inn on on Albemarle Street: The parking lot looks like an impound lot, but it isn't, and parking here is free, making the hotel even that much more of a bargain). <--- This is where you park, on Albemarle street - it's one-way, so make sure you're heading southbound, or you'll never find it. See this map for reference - note how close you are to the Inner Harbor. In the past year, I've probably stayed in over a dozen hotels in Baltimore. The 1840s Carrollton Inn is one of the few places where I've stayed more than once, because it's such an excellent value ... once you're inside. Even though it's on something of a sketchy block, it's right on the border of Inner Harbor Tourism, and because of that, is a huge bargain for what you get for the money. On this stay, I booked The Liberty Room (midweek price usually $225) for a very low price of $122 on hotels.com - I don't like hotels.com, but in this instance, it was *by far* the lowest price for this property - of note, the same room is available right now on hotels.com for the same price. This is technically a Bed & Breakfast, so your room rate includes a full breakfast in the dining area the next morning (they'll also bring you morning coffee to your room). Breakfast here isn't terribly well-executed, but it's hearty, and it's included in the price. After checking in, we walked to dinner at La Tavola (click for details of the meal) - a walk of less than five minutes. The air conditioner wasn't blowing cold air, and the thermostat was stuck on 76 degrees, so after we gave up and called the front desk (literally, a 20-second walk away), they decided to upgrade us to the Declaration Suite (midweek price usually $375), making the price we paid even more absurd at the low-end (we tipped very, very well, both at the front desk, and for the cleaning folks - this was one *heck* of an upgrade). These pictures should speak for themselves, but this is one of three "high-end" suites at the inn, and it was absolutely lovely - people less than a five-minute walk away were paying double or triple this price for a room not nearly this nice. 1840s Carrollton Inn gets (and deserves) a strong 4-star rating.
