Hotel opens at old Broadway Pier in Fells Point
BALTIMORE (WBFF) -- The Broadway Recreation Pier has finished its makeover into a hotel in Baltimore's Fells Point neighborhood.
City officials joined Sagamore Pendry Hotel executives Tuesday to officially open the hotel on Thames Street.
"I think this adds new vitality to this area. And, I just want to say 'thank you' to all these merchants down here for being patient watching this be developed," Mayor Catherine Pugh said after the ribbon-cutting.
The Sagamore Pendry Hotel has 128 rooms, starting at an introductory rate of $299/night. Its two "presidential suites" are priced at $12,000/night.
"All of these things make the city more and more attractive to people, so, to us, it's more, we add one more thing and it's a cornucopia, like more and more people will come because there's more stuff to do," hotel owner Scott Plank, brother of Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank, said.
The old city pier on Broadway is known in recent years as the fictional police station in the TV show "Homicide: Life on the Street," and previously for its role as a hub for immigrants in the early 20th century.
The hotel and "Chop House" restaurant are each scheduled to open to guests Saturday, March 25.
