Pickles Pub, located across the street from Oriole Park at Camden Yards, has long been synonymous with opening day. Thousands of orange-drenched fans make it their first stop (usually of many) on one of Baltimore's most lively days. But at 10 a.m. on April 5, hours before the Orioles host the Minnesota Twins for the first home series of the season, the Deck at Camden Yards - a new, outdoor beer garden at the Hampton Inn -  will open next to Pickles. Deck partner Fritz Brogan says the latest addition to Washington Boulevard will open for Orioles home games, Ravens home games and special events such as the Grand Prix.

Developers of a Hampton Inn & Suites downtown said yesterday that they expect to break ground in the next week or two, making it one of the first to overcome the economic slump that had stalled projects all over Baltimore. Financing has been the main sticking point for most of the delayed hotels, but industry observers say lenders nationally are looking at some hotels again - and say Baltimore is high on their list for consideration. Focus Development LLC, led by Shaffin Jetha, was able to secure a construction loan from Corus Bank of Chicago for the 116-room hotel at Calvert and Redwood streets.

The historic USF&G Corp. building, once destined for demolition, will show off an extreme makeover Thursday as downtown Baltimore's newest hotel -- a Hampton Inn & Suites. The $22 million transformation of the 1906 building at Calvert and Redwood streets has been in progress for about three years. "Our concept was to take the historic building and restore the historic areas, and everywhere else to make sure that the customer had all the modern amenities that could be afforded into a hotel," said Rick Diehl, one of the principals of Baltimore-based Focus Development LLC, which developed the hotel.

In Columbia, three extended-stay hotels stand on a swath of land that stretches just longer than a half-mile, and soon, a Hampton Inn hotel will join them. Although the competitors are sandwiched together on Route 100, company officials say with the extended-stay business booming, there's enough business to go around. "All of this starts with demand," said Tim Sheldon, senior vice president of extended-stay lodging for Bethesda-based Marriott International Inc., adding that different brands of extended-stay hotels fill different niches, from budget lodgings to upscale accommodations.

More housing could be headed to the heart of Baltimore's downtown, in another sign that an area once dominated by office buildings is shifting to hotels and apartments. The city's economic development agency has asked developers to submit plans for turning much of the northwest corner of Calvert and Lombard streets into residences with built-in parking. The city seems interested in a mix of preservation and new construction, with street-level retail. The project area would cover eight buildings - which the city owns, is acquiring or has legal power to buy - that bracket the Brookshire Suites hotel, which is not part of the deal.

My wife and I and another couple just got back from a few days in your beautiful city. We were there to watch baseball and stayed close to the Inner Harbor. While there we could not believe how friendly the people were. Television does not do justice to the beauty of Camden Yards. The Oriole fans are great people, and the concessions were excellent too. I would like to thank the folks at the Hampton Inn for taking such good care of us and also Dave at Peter's Pour House. But most of all I would like the thank the three gentlemen on the boat named "Bus N Loose" for the ride back to the Inner Harbor.

Susan MacMillan-Finlayson drove her four-wheel drive vehicle through the streets of Baltimore around 5 this morning, with an eye out for any Mercy Medical Center staffers who might be hoofing it to work. Along the way, she picked up two reporters, three University of Maryland nurses, and, finally, two Mercy employees. "It was sleeting out and I could not bear to see people out in it," she said. "I saw them on the side of road, they looked like they might be nurses, so I opened my window and said 'Get on in, and let me help you.'" Most Mercy nurses were already at the hospital or in nearby hotels, the result of early planning to ensure that the medical center stayed fully staffed even through the worst of the weather, said MacMillan-Finlayson, chief nursing officer at Mercy.

Access Hollywood host Billy Bush schlepped all the way from L.A. to Baltimore to host the Phelpstivities at Fort McHenry, but he didn't spend the night in town. He stayed instead at the Ritz in Georgetown. Charm City not swanky enough? Not at all, said Michelle Butt, news director at WBAL, the NBC affiliate that helped stage the event. Bush wanted to lodge in Washington because the only direct flight he could get was in and out of Dulles, Butt said. The former Washington DJ also wanted to visit with some friends and relatives down there.

The low point came as I crouched behind a hotel ice machine, counting a stack of twenties into the palm of a stripper named Exotic 4. "Which one's the bride?" he whispered, unzipping a wheeled suitcase that contained, among other items, a fringed purple g-string and a fireman's suit. "The one with the freckles," I whispered back. He was cute, I thought, momentarily pleased. He'd better be, after the time that I, the dutiful Maid of Honor, had spent surreptitiously scrolling through photos of exotic dancers as bosses cruised past my cubicle.
