Let Charm City dazzle you with this week's escape to Brookshire Suites.

Centrally located in the heart of downtown Baltimore, the hotel places you captivatingly close to the attractions, restaurants and shopping of the city's Inner Harbor.

You'll be enchanted with a one ($99) or two-night ($173) stay for two in a standard room, complete with contemporary décor and the comforts of home. In the evenings, let the sounds of an exclusive guest reception (Mondays through Fridays) lure you in with beer, wine, hors d'oeuvres and good company.

Afterward, enjoy the appeal of a good meal with a $25 credit to nearby Supano's Steakhouse. This family-owned restaurant features live jazz and blues, along with a menu boasting house-made lobster ravioli, Maryland crab imperial, tiramisu and cannoli.

In the morning, get ready for a fascinating day ahead with a fresh, hot breakfast buffet served at the hotel. Leave your car behind with included valet parking and travel on foot to nearby hot spots.

Start with one attractive option: The Inner Harbor, one of the country's major seaports, is just a block from the Brookshire. Stroll among the ships, delighting in spontaneous street performances, vendors and shops. And when you tire of taking in the sights from sea level, stop by the World Trade Center to take in panoramic views from the Top of the World observation deck.

The next item on the agenda has all the magic of a trip under the sea while leaving you on dry land. The National Aquarium is home to more than 16,000 creatures, including stingrays, sharks and sea turtles. Those enamoured with baseball are also in luck: Cheer on the Orioles at Camden Yards, a scenic ballpark loaded with historic charm and sporting spirit.

Those who find that history holds allure can visit Fort McHenry; the 18th-century brick fort that defended Baltimore harbour during the War of 1812 celebrates its bicentennial this year. Meanwhile, the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Museum provides an interactive way for the whole family to learn about the American railroad system.

The magnetism of this escape is impossible to ignore — with easy access to all that this city has to offer, you'll be charmed, we're sure.
