A Volcanic Limestone Tub and Heated French Floors Await at This Grand Mansion in Baltimore, Maryland

Set in Baltimore’s historic Mount Vernon neighborhood—once home to gilded mansions and the other, albeit much shorter, Washington Monument—The Ivy Hotel is as grand as the 19th-century former mansion it resides in.

Its imposing turreted façade, complete with stained glass windows and heavenly ever-radiant skylights, serves as an unlikely refuge for visitors seeking warmth and tranquility in the bustling heart of Charm City. From soothing in-room spa services to top-shelf cocktail hour at the intimate self-serve Mansion Bar, relaxation is the name of the game inside the redbrick boutique property.

While all nine rooms at this princely property come with deep soaking tubs, those looking to excel in the realm of indulgences should opt for a stay in one of the eight suites—they come with heated French limestone flooring and specially crafted Victoria & Albert freestanding tubs. Made from finely ground volcanic limestone, these luxe tubs exude an air of tranquility, thanks in part to their extended backrests that offer the ideal position for reclining and reposing in a soothing soak of luxury Zents bath foam.

Soak in an Antique, Prohibition-era Claw-Foot Tub in San Antonio, Texas

Overlooking the San Antonio River, this upscale 22-acre property seamlessly blends contemporary décor elements with its past history— the site housed a former 19th-century brewery run by Emma Koehler, a savvy Prohibition-era businesswoman and the Hotel Emma namesake.

Walk into the lobby and thanks to an almost 8-foot tall red ammonia compressor in the center, you’ll immediately get a glimpse of what the space used to be: the brewery’s engine room. The 147 guest rooms feature exposed brick walls, steel beams and custom-made leather furniture, showcasing the hotel’s contemporary chic Southern style. Upgraded suites offer bathrooms with rustic claw-foot tubs.

In the summer, beat the Texas heat with a dip in the outdoor rooftop pool. Come winter, head indoors to the property’s former cellar space that’s now home to Sternewirth, an eclectic craft cocktail bar.
