Top 10 Hotels in Baltimore!

Monday, August 17th, 2015

For those of you who have already stayed with us, you may not be surprised by seeing our name on the Top 10 Hotels in Baltimore list. For those of you who are considering staying at the 1840s Carrollton Inn, I’m going to make you absolutely positive that this is the place for you. Being a smaller B&B, it is a great accomplishment to be mentioned in not only one article, but in two different articles in the same week! So we would like to extend a special thanks to USA Today and The Culture Trip for mentioning us in their articles!

Some have said that the 1840s is a hidden gem, and USA today confirmed it in this article. It is so easy to overlook because of the location in such a busy city, but this is a charming property with 13 unique bedrooms that are part of the reason why we made the top 10 list. The interconnected row homes add historic value to our property. USA Today makes sure to point out our gourmet breakfast, made-to-order, and our prime location in Baltimore.

Breakfast guests


Baltimore is such a large city, the 20th largest in the USA to be exact. With this being said, there are going to be many different accommodations to meet prices and amenity needs for everyone. The 1840s Carrollton Inn “offers spacious guest rooms and suites with fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, tasteful artwork, and professionally decorated furnishings” according to The Culture Trip. So basically by checking in, you are signing up for a luxurious and satisfying experience.

We made it on these top 10 hotels in Baltimore lists with many other credible and amazing hotels, and are so excited to be a part of this listing. We will continue to provide accommodations that make our guests happy and wanting to visit many more times. We look forward to your next visit!

Historic Carroll Mansion & Shot Tower Tours

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

Beginning May 5, 1840s will be giving tours of the Carroll Mansion and Phoenix Shot Tower for free, to our guests. Tours are from 11:00am-12:00pm and start in the upper Courtyard of the 1840s Carrollton Inn.

The Carroll Mansion was home to the longest living signer of the Declaration of Independence. The house was originally constructed between 1804-1808. Richard Canton bought the house in 1820 and Charles Carroll, Canton’s father-in-law, stayed there. He died on November 14th, 1832, at age 95 in the mansion. His death became recognized as a local and national event because of his importance in the community. After the death of the owners, the property changed hands several times, being used for a brewery, a saloon, a restaurant, apartments, tailoring firms, and even a school.In 1967 the mansion was renovated and open to the public as a historic house museum until 1997.

The Phoenix Shot Tower was the tallest building in the United States when it was built in 1828, and remained that way until 1846. The building, which is 215 feet tall, was built this way because of the method used to make bullets. Molten was poured down a cylinder at the top of the tower, and by the time it reached the bottom it was cooled and perfectly shaped as a bullet. In 1892, a new way of making bullets made this building obsolete so it was shut down and eventually became a historic landmark.

Don’t miss this great opportunity to see and learn about great Baltimore history. Coffee will be served and if you have luggage we would be more than happy to store it.
