Important Local Transportation Update (07/30/2019)

Due to a water main break that is under repair, for the time being the last stop for the light rail in downtown Baltimore is the Camden Yard station, about 3 blocks before Baltimore Street (normally the stop closest to the Big Tent hotels). Exit the train at the Camden Yard stop and walk north on Howard. Turn right on Lombard Street, proceed one block and turn left on Hopkins Plaza.  For either the Crowne Plaza or Radisson - walk north on Hopkins to Fayette and then turn right. For the Lord Baltimore - turn right on Baltimore St, walk one block and then turn left on Hanover.   

For those who are driving -  this is also causing road closures and significant traffic delays in downtown.  Allow extra time and practice extra patience.    

Baltimore is easily accessible by road, air, and rail. Please make your travel arrangements as early as possible. Review the full Big Tent schedule (including pre- and post-conference opportunities) so you are sure of the dates you need to travel before booking your ticket.

The Baltimore airport (BWI) is located about 12 miles from downtown Baltimore and served by most major airlines. Baltimore’s light rail service provides transportation between the airport and downtown, with a stop about 3 blocks from the Big Tent hotels. One-way fare is $1.80. Taxi fare between the airport and downtown is about $40

Amtrak’s Penn Station is located about 2 miles from the hotel

Parking – Valet parking at the Big Tent hotels is about $38/day; self-parking nearby is at about $30/day. More information on parking options will be provided later.
