Since the pandemic struck and hotel stays in downtown Baltimore took a dive, city taxpayers have been paying to prop up the Hilton Baltimore Inner Harbor hotel to the tune of millions of dollars annually. This week Baltimore leaders will consider spending nearly $1 million more. The city’s Board of Estimates is set to vote Wednesday on a grant of $989,000 of American Rescue Plan Act funds to the Baltimore Hotel Corp. for use at the struggling city-owned hotel adjacent to the convention center and ballpark.
