PENDRY HOTELS WILL OPEN ITS SECOND HOTEL IN FEBRUARY IN BALTIMORE
Just the other month, we gave you some insider tidbits on what to expect from Pendry Hotels, the new modern luxury hotel brand from Montage Hotels & Resorts. The first Pendry Hotel will open in San Diego in early January, complete with 317 rooms and suites, a rooftop pool deck with cabanas, and six restaurants and bars, including a beer hall and a basement social club. Now, a second Pendry Hotel is to follow in February, but it won’t be an exact replica of San Diego.
The Sagamore Pendry Hotel in Baltimore will open on the city’s historic Recreation Pier on the Fells Point waterfront. Done in partnership with Sagamore Development Co., which is owned by UnderArmour CEO Kevin Plank (hence the Sagamore in the name), the Pendry Hotel will have 128 rooms and suites, a pool deck bar and grill ( to open in warmer months, of course), a whiskey bar, and a restaurant from New York chef/restauranteur Andrew Carmellini. Carmellini has made his culinary mark on quite a few hotels including the just-opened William Vale hotel in Brooklyn, the W South Beach, Smyth Hotel, and The Greenwich Hotel.
Pendry will also restore the old dance hall that was located on the pier and turn it into a grand ballroom for weddings and private events. Additionally, Pendry will have its own art collection onsite, including a Botero horse sculpture which will greet guests in the courtyard.
As for room design, it is decidedly different from San Diego, which opted for California cool with toile wallpaper featuring surfers and a blue-grey plaid chaise in each room. In Baltimore, there’s a subtle nautical feel with rich wood shutters behind the bed, a fabric/leather sofa at the foot of the bed, and windows that look out into the harbor.
But one thing that will be the same at each Pendry Hotel? The smell. Pendry just announced a new partnership with parfumerie, MiN New York, to create a signature scent for the brand called Momento, which will be pumped into each hotel.
Booking is not yet open for Baltimore but expect rates to be around $300 a night.
