Historic Hotels of America is a collection and celebration of hundreds of historic inns, hotels, motels, and resorts across the Country. Maryland hosts five member hotels including Admiral Fell Inn in one of Baltimore’s most historic and intact waterfront neighborhoods.

The Inn was originally built as a wholesome boarding house a stark alternative to the nearby bustling saloons and brothels for seamen working along Baltimore’s harbor in the 1900s. Buildings adjoining the Inn date back to 1770 and served the community as ship chandler, a theater, and boarding house, and a YMCA.


There is nothing more pristine and wonderful than historic waterfront communities anywhere in the world. Situated on Baltimore’s historic waterfront in the heart of Fell’s Point, the Admiral Fell Inn, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member is a boutique Maryland hotel offering timeless charm and modern amenities.

This historic landmark is found in a location convenient to all of Baltimore’s major attractions. Fell’s Point itself is worth a trip, with its charming shops, boutiques, galleries, pubs, and restaurants. The lively and colorful district, founded in 1726 as the oldest waterfront community in Baltimore, is known for its old world charm and retains the feel of a European village with brick sidewalks and Belgian block streets. The Inn is also near Johns Hopkins Hospital and Johns Hopkins University and just steps from Baltimore’s best dining, entertainment and nightlife.

Comprised of seven adjoining buildings, some of which date to the 18th century, the Admiral Fell Inn retains its quaint charm and cozy ambiance yet offers modern amenities and the elegance of a luxury hotel. The architectural roots of this newly renovated and expanded 80-room Inn date back to the late 1770s. Today, comfortable guest rooms are furnished with custom-crafted Federal-style furnishings.
