About The Ivy Hotel

At The Ivy Hotel, our staff makes every effort to give each guest an outstanding experience, whether they’re here for dinner or an extended stay. We strive to maintain our reputation for sterling service, and are always looking for exceptional staff members ready to join the team at our historic Mount Vernon hotel, located in Baltimore, Maryland.

Rich in history, world-class hospitality and generous luxuries from the moment guests arrive, The Ivy is an otherworldly oasis, unlike any other urban hotel. The first and only Relais & Châteaux property in Maryland,

The Ivy Hotel is where the most exclusive luxuries meet the most inclusive room rates to deliver the only experience of its kind in the world. Complimentary libations, both self serve and upon request, afternoon tea with tiers of sweet and savory treats, in-room delicacies and special nightly turndown delights, made-to-order breakfast wherever you fancy, a chauffeured car service, gratuity and more are all included in one seamless room rate.

The 18-room Mount Vernon mansion defies the traditional luxury hotel experience by inviting guests to make the house their own magnificent home in every sense of the word. Similar to a European countryside chateau, the property’s mystique comes from a combination of history dating back to 1889 and curated treasures collected from around the world. Each room, from the public spaces like the Conservatory and Library to the nine suites and eight bedrooms, is a completely different work of art. Just like the all-embracing warmth of Baltimore, The Ivy is a place for guests to slow down and nurture their true selves.

The Ivy Hotel is an Equal Opportunity Employer. All employment offers are contingent upon successful completion of a background check, and pre-employment drug test conducted in accordance with applicable federal, state and local laws.
