One of the virtues of travel is getting to try out the local fare. Baltimore is famous for its food, especially its variety of crab dishes in the harbor area and its pasta in Little Italy. However, when you roll out of bed in the morning, the last thing you want to do is wander out into the city streets looking for a good breakfast. Fortunately for you, there are a few hotels in Baltimore that offer a free, hot breakfast along with your stay. Take a look.
