(click any image to enlarge)
Horseshoe Casino Baltimore is a beautiful two-story casino with a 122,000 sq. ft. gaming floor. The $442 million development features video lottery terminals (VLTs), table games, and a 14-table World Series of Poker room. A 20,000 sq. ft. Baltimore Marketplace showcases authentic Charm City food outlets, and three premier restaurants, and several bars and lounges round out the food and beverage offerings.
The casino itself is absolutely stunning with gorgeous chandeliers, beautiful paneling and other top-grade finishes. No detail was spared in creating a one-of-a-kind experience – including lots of windows, giving the casino an even more spacious feeling, especially during daylight.
There are more than 2,200 slot machines, more than 150 video poker machines and 153 table games, including blackjack, roulette, baccarat, craps, Fortune Pai Gow Poker, Let It Ride Bonus Poker, Mississippi Stud Poker, Three and Four Card Poker, and Ultimate Texas Hold'Em.
In addition, there is off-track betting on the first level over by the Baltimore Marketplace.
Special Seven Stars Benefits*
Other than the complimentary parking, above, Seven Stars and Diamond cardholders get priority beverage and slot service on the casino floor. In addition, Seven Stars cardholders get a complimentary appetizer at Johnny Sánchez (chef's choice).
There is no hotel associated with the casino, but Horseshoe Baltimore partners with several area hotels: Sheraton Inner Harbor, Hilton Camden Yards, Baltimore Marriott Waterfront, Marriott Inner Harbor at Camden Yards, Holiday Inn Express, Holiday Inn Inner Harbor and Days Inn Inner Harbor. For details click here.
There is a complimentary daily shuttle from the Sheraton Inner Harbor that runs from 4 p.m. to midnight Sunday through Thursday. On Friday and Saturday, the shuttle runs from 6 p.m. to 2:30 a.m.
Seven Stars Lounge
There is no Seven Stars Lounge, but there is a small Diamond Lounge, right, on the second floor. It's marked only by a small sign with the hours of operations on the right-hand side of the entrance. A casino employee will check your player's card and grant access.
Alcoholic beverages are sold at a price discounted from those on the casino floor. You can use your Reward Credits to pay for drinks in the Diamond Lounge.
Individual cups of peanuts are available from the bartender on request and “lite fare” is available from 5 to 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. One weekend the selection included chicken wings, fried fish and some assorted vegetables (squash, zucchini and red peppers). According to Maryland law, free food in venues such as the Diamond Lounge must be limited to “hors d’oeuvre, pretzels, cheese or crackers. . . .”
The bartender, Jimmy, who's there most nights, has worked in Baltimore bars for years and is a great source for "inside" information about the area.
Current hours (subject to change) are 4 to 11 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
Total Rewards Center
The Total Rewards Center is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Should You Choose This For Your Annual Retreat?
Baltimore offers much in the way of sightseeing and other activities. Since there is no hotel connected to the casino, you would need to stay in one of the partner hotels – which, with the exception of the Holiday Inn Express next door – are close, but certainly not within walking distance.
Also, note that casinos without hotels are under no obligation to host your annual retreat, a Diamond Aspiration trip, or even provide you with a complimentary hotel room during any visit.
