Plan Your Stay
Plan your Baltimore vacation or staycation and visit some of our favorite restaurants and attractions.
Introducing the Charm City Circulator, Baltimore’s new convenient, eco-friendly and free shuttle! If you are planning to see the city, park at our downtown property, 1840s Carrollton Inn, just footsteps from the Albemarle Square stop, and hop on the circulator.
Park the car, meet our innkeepers and stay awhile. There’s much to see and do on the property at Gramercy and we invite you to relax, unwind and enjoy. Spend a lazy summer afternoon by the outdoor pool or curl up on a bench in the shade garden with your favorite book. Stroll through the landscaped gardens, have a swing on our old-fashioned rope swing (fun for kids of all ages!) or entertain the little ones on the wooden playground, tennis and basketball courts. Our 45-acre estate is home to Koinonia Organic Farm and also a wildlife preserve – ask to borrow our binoculars and spy many species of birds in the woodlands.
