Transportation Information


Hotel Location

The Lord Baltimore Hotel is located in the heart of downtown Baltimore, just steps from the Inner Harbor, Oriole Park at Camden Yards and M&T Bank Stadium. The hotel is also across the street from the Charles Center subway station, offering access to attractions and things to do throughout Baltimore.

Every detail of the Lord Baltimore Hotel is rich in historical and architectural significance, all coming together to create one of the most unique and interesting hotels in downtown Baltimore. Guests arriving through the revolving doors are greeted by a magnificent lobby featuring a beautiful grand piano, classic oil paintings, polished brass, and an award-winning vaulted fresco ceiling with an immense Murano glass chandelier.

Did you know?

Your support in staying at the Lord Baltimore Hotel helps keep the conference costs down, which directly affects your registration fees. SIAM guarantees the hotel that we will fill a certain number of “room nights” (rooms per night) during the conference. SIAM incurs penalties if too many attendees opt to stay in other hotels in the area or neglect to indicate to the hotel that they are with the SIAM conference. Currently, conference costs do not include meeting room rental. If SIAM fails to fill the contracted room block, SIAM is charged the cost for the meeting rooms daily, along with a hefty penalty. Future registration fees could increase to cover these additional risks.


SIAM is holding a block of rooms at the Lord Baltimore Hotel. These rooms are being held on a first-come, first-served basis at the following discounted rates. Please be aware the room block fills quickly, so we suggest you make your hotel and travel plans early.

The group rate is guaranteed until 11:59 p.m. Eastern time. on February 5, 2024, or until the room block is full. If rooms are available after the cutoff date, they will be offered at the best available rate.

All rates are subject to state and local occupancy taxes.

In the event that you find a lower room rate, please make the reservation at the lower rate and notify SIAM immediately ([email protected]). By doing this you will receive the lower rate and be counted towards the SIAM room block. However, please be aware by booking outside the SIAM room block at a lower rate, you may not receive the same benefits as rooms reserved in the SIAM room block (i.e. complimentary internet access).

To receive the SIAM rate, make your reservations using the appropriate online reservation link or by calling the hotel directly and identifying yourself as a SIAM attendee:
Toll Free Reservations (U.S. and Canada): 855-539-1928
Direct Telephone Number: +1 410-539-8400

Do not make your reservation online using the hotel’s general website, as this will not allow you to obtain the SIAM group rate. Be sure to use the online reservation link above if making reservations online. Remember to get your confirmation number!

Reservations are not confirmed until acknowledged in writing by the hotel or verified by phone. Be sure to get a confirmation number from the hotel and be prepared to provide that number to the front desk clerk upon check-in at the hotel.
