Blue Door on Baltimore
The Washburn Room
The Washburn Room is street-side on our second floor and is the Blue Door’s largest room. It faces Baltimore Street, separating Baltimore City into north and south as the unit block. The room name comes from the Civil War era of Patterson Park when the park became a large tent city and was used as a Union Army Rehabilitation Hospital. At that time Butcher’s Hill received its name. Many of the local residents were butchers who had shops and staging areas near the inner harbor and provided meats consumed by the Union Army.
Indulge yourself in this restful and romantic room with its King Sized Bed, sitting area with writing desk, and very large bathroom. Soak in the tub for a while. Enjoy a good book from our library, just next door, by the light of the room’s three tall windows. Or, just get away from everything to relax and revitalize. The Washburn also has in-room satellite television, wireless Internet access, the private bath with separate soaking tub and shower, and cozy robes to curl up in.
The Washburn can also accommodate a third traveler with its twin size fold out Ottoman.
The Patterson Room
The Patterson Room is located on our second floor. It is named after Patterson Park and William Patterson, of course. One of William’s beautiful daughters, Elizabeth “Betsy”, was for a short time married to Jerome Bonaparte, brother of Napoleon. Please feel free to ask us for the rest of the story.
The Patterson provides a King Sized Bed, a private outside deck, and deluxe bathroom. There are great views of our row house neighborhood from the deck. Maybe just a relaxing soak in the tub for a while is in order. Like all rooms at the Blue Door on Baltimore the Patterson has, a bath with both a separate claw-foot bathtub and shower, a large sitting area with writing desk, satellite television, Internet access, and cozy robes to curl up in.
The Patterson also adjoins the Hampstead Room for those traveling together and wishing connecting rooms.
The Hampstead Room
The Hampstead Room is located on the Third floor at the rear of our facility. It’s namesake, Hampstead Hill, is the site where Patterson Park was later to be established and is the section of the park where it’s famous pagoda is located. Hampstead Hill was an instrumental part of the Battle of Baltimore in the War of 1812 which inspired Francis Scott Key to write the poem that later become our national anthem. See the Harbor just as he did from this room’s private balcony.
The Hampstead provides a King Sized Bed, a private outside deck, and deluxe bathroom with separate soaking tub and shower. Take a seat on the deck, catch some fresh air, relax, and absorb our row house neighborhood views. Like all other rooms at the Blue Door on Baltimore the Hampstead has a large sitting area with writing desk, satellite television, wireless Internet access, and cozy robes to curl up in.
The Hampstead does adjoin the Patterson Room for families or groups traveling together.
