As for the building itself, it doesn't look like anything too special. Rather too bad, as this could have been something very handsome for the city. Instead, it's a fairly ordinary building.

Got it, thanks. You can go to www.bugmenot.com for registration. As for the hotel I find it difficult to tell exactly what the end result may look like even looking at the renderings. I guess we will have to wait and see for the end result.

The article said they tried to design the hotel with Camden Yard and Camden Station in mind yet a hotel with an identity and that would be memorable so hopefully it will have somewhat of a special appeal about it.

Competition is a good thing though. It forces the other hotels to either upgrade or possibly lose business. We have seen that here in Va Beach at the Oceanfront. Some very nice hotels have opened in the last few years (The Hilton on 31st being the tallest and most high end). Quite a few hotels have upgraded and some have simply gone way of the wrecking ball to make way for something much grander.

The hotel business in Baltimore has been going at full speed. I'm astonished at the rates I consistently see on the web for hotels in Baltimore. More hotels are definitely needed.

I agree we need to get Trump to build one.

It would even be better if we could get the slot bill passed.
