A few weeks ago, my friends and I headed up to Baltimore to celebrate Camden Yards’ 25th Anniversary. For those of you who don’t know, I was born in Baltimore and lived there until I was five, and then I moved to the D.C. suburbs with my mother. My dad and his whole side of the family remained in Baltimore and I bounced between Northern Virginia and Baltimore my entire childhood, so in a way, Baltimore feels like my hometown as much as D.C. does.
I grew up on O’s games and never became a Nats fan. I mean, the Nationals didn’t even exist until I was 15! I’ve been attending Orioles games since I was little and grew up watching good ol’ Cal Ripken Jr. play, so I knew I had to attend Camden Yards’ anniversary.
We partnered with the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court for a stay, and man: it was pretty magical. Unfortunately, we were so busy that we didn’t spend much time in the hotel, but it was a fantastic place to stay for an O’s fan. The Royal Sonesta Harbor Court is only a 5-minute walk from the stadium, and right across the street from the Inner Harbor. Location-wise, I couldn’t ask for a better place to stay at!
