Dream Weekends 2005: Inn at Henderson’s Wharf

The featherbeds at this waterfront inn are so comfortable that you’ll be tempted to while away the day in bed, watching movies or gazing through the cherry-wood shutters at the garden or harbor view.

But this casually elegant inn, housed in a converted 19th-century tobacco warehouse, is in the heart of Fells Point. Walk to the nearby water taxi for a quick cruise to Inner Harbor attractions, or wander cobblestone streets lined with art galleries, shops, restaurants, and Irish pubs.

The 38 rooms feature French-inspired furnishings, exposed-brick walls, and 30-inch LCD TVs. Free parking, a bottle of wine, wireless access, a fitness center, and a generous continental breakfast are all part of the package.

Bottom line: This cozy retreat will have you feeling right at home in the city.

Inn at Henderson’s Wharf, 800-522-2088; www.hendersonswharf.com. Rooms range from $189 to $239 a night for two.
