I bought my fiance tickets to an Orioles/Yankees game at Camden Yards for his birthday. We will be going in April and would like to stay overnight. I am looking for a hotel nearby that is clean and safe. I found the Hotel Monaco. In the pictures, it looks great and majority of reviews are positive, but two said that there are shady people around at night. Can anyone clarify what this means? Is the location safe? Would you recommend any other hotels in the area? I’ve never been to Baltimore before (very excited!!!) and need some advice.

That’s a great hotel and a good location in Baltimore. Every city has their shady characters, but as long as you use good common sense (i.e., don’t walk down a dark deserted street by yourself, dangling your purse around), you’ll be fine. We looked at the Monaco for our wedding and it’s really cute (but was too small for our wedding sadly). The Peabody Court is in a similar neighborhood and is nice (that’s where our hotel block is), and there are a bunch of good hotels by the Inner Harbor. If you want to be in a good neighborhood, I’d say go for a hotel at the Inner Harbor, in Mount Vernon, or in Fell’s Point. Fell’s Point has some really cute B&B’s (although they may be a little pricier).

Thanks so much PB&J! We ended up booking the Hotel Monaco. I am super excited!
