A BRIEF HISTORY

The Belvedere was built in 1903 as Baltimore’s first luxury hotel. Named after General John Eager Howard’s estate, the “Belvidere”, which was located ~1 block away, The Belvedere Hotel was the tallest building in Baltimore at 188’ in 1903.

 

Once called “the Crown Jewel of Baltimore,” The Belvedere was the place to go for society’s elite. The Belvedere Hotel was the premier lodging in Baltimore during the first half of the twentieth century.

 

Belvedere means “beautiful view” and from the Grand and Platinum Ballrooms on the 12th floor and the spectacular 13th Floor venue, you can see why The Belvedere earned her name. The building originally had a barbershop and pool hall in the basement, as well as shops, a tea room, hotel bar, and even a pool.
