The Omni Inner Harbor Hotel, owned by Wyndham International, will operate under the Wyndham flag next week. "We as a corporation have long thought that Baltimore was a critical market for Wyndham," said Fred H. Stern, vice president of communications for Wyndham International Inc., based in Dallas. "We've always wanted to be part of the downtown hotels." The flag change at the 707-room hotel, which is the largest in the state, coincides with a $6 million upgrade to the West Fayette Street property.

Four years ago, Veronica Whitaker went from being a fairly well-off forklift operator to a divorced mother on welfare, struggling to support her three children. While on welfare, she realized that finding jobs was hard, but staying employed was even harder.With FUTURE, an employment program for Baltimore welfare recipients that officially was launched yesterday, Whitaker finally has a shot at not just a temporary job, but a new career in the hotel industry that she hopes could help put her teen-agers through college.

The Baltimore Grille at the Omni Hotel, 385-6601. Th Baltimore Grille, which opened in September, seems to be taking its place among a new generation of hotel restaurants that court local diners, as well as the in-house trade, with serious food and service. The grille is an uptown restaurant tucked into a corner of the Omni Hotel with a bold menu, soothing surroundings and warmly solicitous service. The food is good, too. The menu offers two fixed-price dinners ($39.95) with each course accompanied by an appropriate wine and an a la carte section, featuring Black Angus Beef and lobster among the offerings.

A Houston company is negotiating to buy the 703-room Omni Inner Harbor Hotel for roughly $24 million, a move that could result in the second sale of the city's largest hotel in as many years.If the sale to the Gencom Group reaches fruition, it would cap a year of frenzied activity provoked by improved occupancy and room rates at hotel properties in the area.Analysts also attributed the renewed interest in local hotels to planned or nearly completed expansions of tourist attractions. These are expected to greatly enhance the city's $1 billion annual tourism industry.
