When I get turned away from the shelter, here is my preferred place to stay:
Holiday Inn Express – Baltimore Downtown
221 North Gay Street, Baltimore, MD 21202
The rooms are immaculate, and considerably larger than the efficiency or studio apartment I hope someday to get for myself. The hallways are wide. Nice, big, comfy bed with four huge pillows. Your own microwave and fridge in the room. Excellent wi-fi. Friendly staff.
Complimentary coffee around the clock — good for me, as I drink it around the clock. Dining area with complimentary breakfast 6:30 to 9:30.
In easy reach to and from anywhere I’d like to go.
Front desk clerks Rixa and Carlo are aware of my situation, and have always been very helpful in finding me a room I can afford. And they’re both big fans of this blog!
If you’re visiting Baltimore, stay here!
