Casino overview
Horseshoe Baltimore Maryland Casino 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 Horseshoe is located on Baltimore's south side.  There is easy access from I-95 going south or north, or from the Baltimore-Washington Parkway heading north.  Signage is excellent as you approach downtown Baltimore from the north. From the south, take Exit 52 from I-95 (Russell Street North).  If you're traveling on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway (Md. 295), just stay on it and the road becomes Russell Street.  The casino will be on your right.

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

In addition, there is off-track betting on the first level over by the Baltimore Marketplace.
On the casino floor soft drinks, coffee and bottled water are complimentary.  D
ue to state laws, there is a charge for alcoholic beverages.

However, Reward Credits, as well as cash and credit cards, can be used to purchase alcoholic beverages on the casino floor, in the bars or restaurants, and the VIP Lounge.

The casino is smoke-free, but there are outdoor smoking areas, complete with slot machines, on both floors.

Valet parking closed Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, but available from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. Thursday through Sunday is complimentary for all Seven Stars and Diamond cardholders.  Platinum and Gold cardholders pay $10.  Thursdays all Total Rewards cardholders 55 and older get free valet parking. 
Because the casino is located adjacent to M&T Bank Stadium, on certain special event days, guests without Total Rewards cards may be charged.

Self-parking in the Horseshoe's 3,500-space garage is always complimentary for Seven Stars and Diamond cardholders; however, there is reserved parking for Seven Stars and Diamond cardholders on Level 3 of the garage.

There are 18 spaces directly in front of the door and about 4½ rows of Seven Stars/Diamond spaces.

You’ll need to get a parking pass/hang tag, right, at Total Rewards.

Except on certain special event days, self-parking also is complimentary for Platinum and Gold cardholders.

There is no Seven Stars Lounge, but there is a small VIP Lounge (formerly the 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.

Access to the Lounge is limited to Seven Stars cardholders and Diamond cardholders who earned 25,000 to 149,000 tier credits last year or who earn 25,000 or more tier credits this year.

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 Lounge.

The VIP Lounge (formerly, the Diamond Lounge) offers a warm and comfortable enclave off the casino floor to relax and enjoy a cocktail or other beverage.  There is a bar which seats 12, some sofas, and a few small tables. 
From 5 to 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturday, guests can order from an à la carte menu (see below) at an additional cost.

Here's the $8 Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad that
is prepared and delivered by Guy Fieri's Baltimore Kitchen + Bar:

One of the bartenders, 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, or even provide you with a complimentary hotel room during any visit.

Inside Information'satlanticcity/Total%20Touch.jpg

This casino is equipped with Caesars proprietary Total Touch system that allows customers to order drinks, redeem free play, check their Total Rewards account balances, and receive real-time offers based on play

■ The direct phone number to the Horseshoe is (844) 777-SHOE (7463).

Donate your EZ Pay "cash" to the Maryland Veterans Trust Fund.  There's a box, above, at the exit to the self-parking garage on the second floor.

A reminder, above, that Caesars has banned plastic straws and stirrers from all its U.S. properties.

■ If you're going to be ordering an alcoholic beverage on the casino floor and pay with Reward Credits, bring along an extra players card.  When the servers get busy it can take a while for them to return your card and, unless you want to continue playing without getting credit, give them your extra card.

■ You no longer have to use all your free slot play at one machine.  Let’s say you download $50, have a big win and decide your machine isn’t going to hit again for a while. You’re no longer stuck playing the balance of what you downloaded.  Simply remove your Total Rewards card from the machine, and any unused free slot play will automatically be re-deposited back into your bank.  Caesars casinos in Hammond, New Orleans, Phoenix and Tunica – and perhaps others – are among those with similar policies.

■ Forgot or lost your Total Rewards card?  You can reprint your card just by using your driver's license.  No more standing in line at the Total Rewards Center.

■ Listen to an informative 30-minute presentation about Total Rewards and get your choice of 2,000 Reward Credits ($20 in comps) or $20 in free play.  You can attend the “class” as many times as you like, but you get the “reward” only once. Check at the Total Rewards Center for dates and times, and register starting an hour in advance.

■ Free salsa dancing lessons have returned to Horseshoe Baltimore Fridays from 8 p.m. to midnight.  Head toward B’more Beers and look for drink specials too.

■ At Gordon Ramsay Steak, if they order from the special Children's Menu, children younger than 12 eat free with any adult diner.

■ Maryland law limits individual ATM withdrawals to $1,000, with a daily limit of $2,500.  The actual number of transactions – at $5.99 each – will be determined by your bank and the maximum daily amount your account allows. This applies only to ATMs physically located in Maryland casinos.  The check-cashing fee is five percent.  Horseshoe has an outside vendor that handles this. Seven Stars cardholders get their fee refunded either in promo chips or slot play.

■ Self-serve beverage dispensers are located throughout the casino floor.  If you're getting food from any of the Baltimore Marketplace outlets, save yourself some money and just grab a complimentary drink here.

■ While the Horseshoe has some wonderful restaurants perfect for a family dinner, all but Gordon Ramsay Steak are located on the casino floor, so no one younger than 21 can be admitted.

■ It's always subject to change, but the VIP Lounge currently has a "Happy Hour" from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.  Choose a "double" or "buy one, get one."
