Hotel restaurants often get a bad rap. Many are known for boring decor, pricey food and lackadaisical service. FountainSide at the Doubletree by Hilton in Pikesville fits some of those descriptions - but the service is anything but lazy. The restaurant and its lounge occupy a large space on the Reisterstown Road side of the Doubletree. We entered through the lobby, finding the space fairly easily, despite the lack of clear signage. Later we realized that the hotel's side door was actually more convenient to the restaurant, but first-time visitors would have trouble finding that entrance.

But I quickly learned that this was one shore town that has plenty of things to do -- no matter what the weather.There are, of course, 11 palatial summer "cottages" where America's upper crust once lived and entertained, and which are now open to the rest of us for tours.
