Today, Sagamore Development and The Pendry held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Sagamore Pendry Hotel at the former Fells Point Recreation Pier. The pier, which dates back to 1914, was once used as an immigration pier as well as the set of Homicide: Life on the Street. The new 128-room hotel sits mostly on top of the Inner Harbor and features the Rec Pier Chophouse and Cannon Room whiskey bar, a ballroom, an outdoor courtyard, and a pool facing the Inner Harbor.
The $60 million hotel was redeveloped by Sagamore Development and constructed by Whiting Turner. The interior design was completed by Federal Hill’s Patrick Sutton, and the food and beverage operations are run by Chef Andrew Carmellini’s NoHo Hospitality Group.
The Pendry has one other hotel in San Diego, and six Montage Hotels located in Beverly Hills, California; Laguna Beach, California; Kapalua Bay, Hawaii; Park City, Utah; Palmetto, South Carolina; and Los Cabos, Mexico. At today’s event, The Pendry executive team described how they were previously unfamiliar with Baltimore, but has grown to fall in love with the city and its history and authenticity.
Sagamore Development, which is owned by Kevin Plank and has its offices in South Baltimore, is also developing Port Covington.
Rooms at the Sagamore Pendry Hotel range from $359 to $12,000 per night.
