For our out of town guests we have put together some information below.
Whether you’re staying just for the wedding, or making a small vacation of it, Charm City has plenty to offer.
The Radisson at Cross Keys is the official wedding hotel. We have a block of rooms available there. To reserve call 1-800-333-3333 and mention The Armacost/Shannon Wedding.
Transportation to the wedding venue will be provided for guests staying at the Radisson.
Airbnb or similar rental sites are also excellent options, and there’s plenty of inventory in the area. When on Airbnb, please include “Roland Park”, “Hampden”, “Medfield” or “Cross Keys” (all local neighborhoods) to pare down your search.
If you have any questions on accommodations please reach out.
Baltimore has limited mass transportation options (a real point of contention with us residents), so your best bet will likely be to drive, rent a car or be prepared to use Uber or Lyft extensively. This will be especially true if you’re staying at the official wedding hotel. For limited local travel (mostly for a trip downtown or to Camden Yards) there is the Light Rail.
If you’re in town long enough to make a quick trip to Washington, D.C., check out the Marc Train. There are several trains that run daily to and from Baltimore’s Penn Station to the nation’s capitol.
Our wedding will take place in Baltimore City’s Mill Area Corridor, which includes Hampden, a bustling commercial district, and Medfield, a quieter neighborhood where we currently reside. Once a hub of industry, the area now features a ton of local shops and restaurants. Here’s a map highlighting the best local stores, food options, as well as attractions in the wider Baltimore area, including downtown.
