Developers of a Ritz-Carlton hotel in the Inner Harbor will present another plan to city design reviewers today that may call for a smaller project than originally proposed. The developers, who've generated several plans for the luxury hotel to appease local officials and residents concerned about preserving the area's views and character, will make a pitch to the city's Design Advisory Panel. Panel members will make a recommendation to city planners, once they've seen the project's concept, said Bob Quilter, an architect in the city's planning department and coordinator for the panel.
