HotelTonight – Abell Baltimore Hotels

Baltimore is a city that is complex and simple at the same time. There are a lot of different neighborhoods here, a lot of different cultures and backgrounds and a lot of different ideas regarding how things should be done and run. One of the many great things about the Charm City, however, is that at the end of the day the people here come together as one strong community. I've always gotten that vibe when I was in Baltimore, so I was thrilled to find out that my new job would be taking me there with some regularity. Since I had already seen and done all of the touristy things there, I wanted to do something different. I decided that on each trip, I'd extend my stay by 24 hours so I could explore one neighborhood for that entire time. It would give me the opportunity to really dig deep in this city and remove any stress related to time. On my last trip, I chose to explore the Abell neighborhood. I wasn't concerned about finding a place to stay. I travel with HotelTonight. It would find an Abell Baltimore hotel as soon as I needed one.

The Architecture

The first thing I noticed about Abell was the unique and positively lovely architecture. This is a residential neighborhood for the most part, but the folks here have made the most of their space. The homes are mostly row houses, but they are painted in such a creative way that you can't help but notice them. They are called the "Painted Lady" row houses here, and that's because each of them is a distinct but bright color with creative trim. It's really something to see, as it combines almost tropical colors with classic buildings.

The Park

Abell is not a big neighborhood by any stretch. It's about 10 square blocks total right in the heart of the city, but as the people here have done with their homes, they've also maximized their public space. The Abell Open Space is not large, but it's filled with lovely greenery, equipment for children to use while at play and even a free library where people can borrow and donate books inside of a little wooden house that keeps them dry. I'm told there are quite a few community meetings that are held here as well, as the community organizing is strong in Abell.

The Restaurants

Abell has also made sure to save some room for its restaurants, and I was glad to see that as I was starving after all of this exploring. I heard about a sushi place that had attracted a loyal following, so I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did, as the rolls were not only creative, but they were also extremely fresh. You can always tell good sushi by the texture of the fish, and this fish was firm but still tender and extremely flavorful.
