Hilton Baltimore Convention Center Hotel

About the Project

Inspired by Baltimore’s famed Camden Yards and Inner Harbor, the Hilton Baltimore Convention Center Hotel is a Class-A hotel central to the ongoing economic revitalization of downtown Baltimore and enhances the city’s reputation as a major convention destination.   With 756 guest rooms including 20 suites, this 20-story hotel offers more rooms than any other hotel in Baltimore. Its 25,000 SF grand ballroom is the city’s largest, complemented by a 15,000 SF junior ballroom and an additional 22,000 SF of flexible function space. Additional hotel amenities include a 290-seat full-service restaurant, food and beverage outlets, a fitness center, a business center, street-level retail space and a 550-space underground parking garage.


Real Estate Development

The Baltimore Development Corporation selected Hensel Phelps Real Estate Development / Hensel Phelps Construction as the developer and design-builder of the city’s new Convention Center Headquarters Hotel. In addition to providing the pre-development equity, Hensel Phelps Real Estate Development was responsible for overseeing the purchasing and installation of the Furnishing Fixtures & Equipment (FF&E), Operating Supplies & Equipment (OS&E) and the Special System components (Telephone, Computer & Data, P.O.S., Hotel Management Systems, Audio Visual, CCTV, and the Security Systems). The total Real Estate Development value of this project is 317,500,000.



New pedestrian bridges constructed over active rail lines and arterial roadways link the hotel to adjacent attractions. The hotel was designed to blend and complement its historic surroundings. It used a partial brick facade that mimics the adjacent ballpark and incorporated a series of blues and earth tones throughout the facility, inspired by the area’s harbor and wetlands. Spanning the top of the hotel’s amenities areas, a 32,000 SF green roof system helps to reduce stormwater runoff, decreases the heat-island effect of the city’s other blacktop roofs, and contributes to enhanced energy efficiency.
