The owner of an aging downtown Baltimore hotel hopes to breathe new life into the property with a gritty, cool makeover that incorporates graffiti, sleek, white couches and a chain link fence. The multi-million dollar upgrade of the Brookshire Suites at Calvert and Lombard streets gives a new street twist to the 1958 building, which began as a parking garage but has been a hotel since the 1980s. Modus Hotels saw an opportunity to stand out in Baltimore, which has traditionally been dominated by big names with conventional reputations, such as Hilton, Marriott and Hyatt, said Aaron Katz, CEO of the Washington, D.C.-based owner of 11 hotels.

When is a hotel not just a hotel? When its owners turn it into a work of art. That's what managers of the Brookshire Suites Hotel want to do with their 13-story building at Calvert and Lombard streets in Baltimore. They've hired an artist from North Carolina, Michael Brown, to create a mural that will change its appearance and draw the attention of shoppers, tourists and others visiting the Inner Harbor. Brown has proposed a bold geometrical design that suggests a maze, a crossword puzzle grid, even an electronic circuit board.

All over town, there are talented chefs languishing in semi-obscurity. These are the chefs heading up the kitchens in public institutions — universities, convention facilities and even hospitals — and in private institutions like country clubs. They might not operate in the limelight, but the hours are more regular and the benefits packages are often better. The executive chefs of hotels fall into their own blurry category. Their audience is mostly transient, but a few manage to find a following and make a name.

Until about a year ago, the restaurant at the top of the Brookshire Hotel was called Michael's Riviera Grill. The Michael in question was Michael Dalesio, formerly of Dalesio's fame in Little Italy. While Dalesio went on to do restaurant consulting and other things, his namesake restaurant at the hotel languished in a kind of Mediterranean-American cuisine limbo.Then the hotel changed the name, lowered the prices and introduced a more emphatically American menu (think steaks and seafood).

Segway says its human transporter will take you almost anywhere, replacing a car for short hops and saving the environment to boot. But the fortunes of the motorized scooter's parent company appear to be headed in just one direction: south. People aren't buying the $4,500 machine in the great quantities expected. A recall last year raised questions about reliability. President Bush fell off one. And theme parks including Walt Disney World and cities such as San Francisco have banned Segways, which travel up to 12 1/2 mph, from sidewalks.
