Boutique hotels are my thing. Of course I enjoy high end properties that have a five star rating and are known the well-over for their distinction and classic style. But I especially like hotels that aren’t a chain—ones that are unique and funky with fabulous furnishings and youthful appeal. While in the Washington, D.C. area recently, my flight was canceled and I had to stay until the next day to catch a plane to New York City. I used my trusty Hotel Tonight app on my phone to look for rooms in the area that wouldn’t break the bank, and I came across the Lord Baltimore Hotel in Downtown Baltimore near the harbor. And at only $75 for the night, I went ahead and booked the room since the photos of the hotel on the app looked amazing.

Once I arrived to the hotel, I could tell that this was an old property, but it had been redone and updated into a quirky hotel destination. The lobby still had an old Charm City feel, but was mixed with contemporary furnishings. The staff greeted me with a smile and gave me a room on the 15th floor.

My room was a nice size with a Queen bed, flat screen HD TV, and a small bathroom with wood laminate floors. The decor was trendy yet sparse, and I could appreciate the youthful style meets old world feel.

For $75, I doubt I would be able to find a better room in the Baltimore area. And for a night or two, this property was well worth it.

Here are a few photos from my room at Lord Baltimore:
