Where to stay in Baltimore, MD

Want to stay at a hotel in downtown Baltimore? Be sure to ask for a room on a lower floor.

My son is a fireman in Baltimore, stationed downtown by the harbor. Due to cutbacks, they no long have a ladder truck. If there is a high rise fire in downtown Baltimore, ladder trucks have to come in from outlying firehouses.

My son told me that they used to be able to reach the 6th floor when fighting fires. No longer. Play it safe and stay on floors 1-3.
