The Mount Royal Hotel and Apartments were designed in 1899 by the well-respected Baltimore architect, Edward H. Glidden. The Neo-Italian Renaissance style buildings were constructed in early 1900; the 103 East Mount Royal Avenue building served as an upscale hotel and the 101 East Mount Royal Avenue building contained all upscale apartments. Centered in the rich artistic and cultural life concentrated in the then city’s center, Mount Vernon, Baltimore, The Mount Royal Hotel and Apartments were a very desirable place to visit as a hotel guest, or to live in as a resident of the apartments. Once the Pennsylvania Train Station was completed in 1911, The Mount Royal’s appeal only increased, as the property’s location attracted daily commuters to and from Washington, DC. Even in 1911, the train ride from Penn Station to Union Station was just 40 minutes.

Although renamed and renovated several times throughout its history, the current owners decided to return the property to its original name, “The Mount Royal”, which remains etched above the 103 East Mount Royal Avenue entrance from original construction, to emphasize the historical nature and signifcance of the buildings. While the property again received major renovations in the last few years, the owners have worked diligently to keep the historic signifcance and detail from original construction, while blending in classic architecture with contemporary touches. Notwithstanding its age, The Mount Royal Apartments continues to be among the most desirable Baltimore apartments for rent, rich and vibrant in Baltimore history, and maintaining some of the most classic architecture in the City of Baltimore.
