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.

The Holiday Inn at the Inner Harbor has laid off more than a quarter of its workers, and other big hotels such as the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel and the Renaissance Harborplace are trimming staff hours as the city's hospitality industry tries to weather the decline in business caused by last week's terrorist attacks. Many hotels in and around Baltimore's Inner Harbor are coping with the kind of drop in occupancy that usually isn't seen until winter, if it happens at all. How the Baltimore Convention Center fares in retaining scheduled events in coming months will have a big impact on many area businesses.

It consisted of dinner, dancing, auctions and chitchat with Ravens players and their wives.The football team became interested in the Burn Center last year after player Anthony Pleasant and his wife, Renita, established a fund in honor of their baby, Hannah, who had been treated there.
