This isn't how a 38-year-old woman is supposed to ride a bicycle. Watching Marla Streb pedal through downtown Baltimore reminds you more of a whale at play in open ocean. Every now and then -- taking deliberate aim at that manhole-cover mogul on Guilford Avenue, hopping the curb in front of the Renaissance Harborplace Hotel -- she feels this urge to breach, to leave solid pavement behind and go airborne. Maybe it's a way of keeping in touch with her Inner Mammal. Well, go free Willy if you want, but there's no need to liberate Marla Streb.

Some of the prettiest restaurants in Baltimore can be found in the hotels that hug the Inner Harbor. Windows, at the Renaissance Harborplace Hotel, is a lovely place to dine, especially if you reserve a table overlooking Pratt Street.Floor-to-ceiling windows let in the bright lights and bustle of the harbor. Mirrors, blond wood and crystal chandeliers create an atmosphere of modern, streamlined elegance. The restaurant was just as inviting recently as it had been on a visit last year.Executive chef Timothy P. Mullen and new restaurant chef Mitch Cooper have kept the emphasis at Windows on fresh seafood and Chesapeake region specialties.

Three years ago, Bell Atlantic took a hard look at small businesses and found some unexpected trends: women were starting new businesses at a faster rate than men and were adapting to new technology more easily.Now, in an attempt to encourage its women-owned business customers to keep phoning, faxing and paging, the regional telephone company has tailored a motivational program for women and taken it on the road.Yesterday, Bell Atlantic executives and author and entrepreneur Rebecca Maddox stopped in Baltimore to urge about 150 women who either own a business or want to start one to invest in themselves as well as their work.

When the proposed $124 million Westin Inner Harbor Hotel opens in two years, it will contain separate wings that create a luxury hotel within a hotel.One wing of the planned 600-room, four-star hotel will be a 25-story tower where most rooms will offer guests a view of the harbor. The other, the Harborfront Wing, is envisioned as a five-star hotel within the bigger hotel, containing 80 rooms directly overlooking the Inner Harbor."The general idea is that [both options] will appeal to a broader audience," said Mark A. Lukens, director of development for Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc., which bought Westin in January.
