Since opening, the Renaissance Harborplace Hotel has experienced tremendous success. The eight-level hotel features a health club, 18 meeting room, two ballrooms, a health club with an indoor swimming pool, and a rooftop courtyard. Guests are particularly attracted to the ideal downtown/waterfront location and access to The Gallery’s many amenities including quality restaurants and shops.

Located along Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, the 28-storey Gallery at Harborplace has a 30,000-square foot landscaped boulevard along Pratt Street and a scenic harbour view. The 1.5 million- square foot complex features a six-storey atrium with four retail levels containing 75 shops and restaurants, the 622-room Renaissance Harborplace Hotel, 270,000 square feet of office space and underground parking for 1,150 cars. The design incorporates distinctive entry points for each use, and connective links such as an arcade, corridors and escalators.

Designed to harmonize with the existing urban environment, the hotel podium continues the cornice line of its immediate neighbours while the office tower is set back to the north and relates in form to the downtown business community.
