Old Town National Bank

Former bank headquarters restored as a hotel

The classically styled Old Town National Bank building at 221 N. Gay Street was constructed in 1924 as a bank headquarters. Despite many years of vacancy, the primary first stories retained an array of historic details, including a two-story lobby, cornice and parapet wall, grand marble stairway, and even vault spaces. The work included refurbishing and repairing these and a host of other features, and the building now shines as a Holiday Inn Express Hotel.

The owner Old Town Properties LLC and local architecture firm Kann Partners ensured that the received a preservation award from Baltimore Heritage in recognition of their efforts.
