    The Steps of Choosing a Hotel Room

    Last updated 4 months ago

    Before you book a hotel room, it is important to think about what you want from your space. Do you care about room service? Is there a certain location where you want to stay? Answering these questions before you start searching can help narrow down your selection.

    Do some Internet research to find hotels that have the amenities you need. Once you find a rate that fits into your budget, you should call the hotel to talk to the reservation agent to see if you can get an even better price. For more great tips, you can check out this video.

    Ellicott City's Main Street Matters

    Last updated 4 months ago

    Shops in downtown Ellicott City’s Main Street are sporting a new look and fresh coat of paint thanks to Benjamin Moore!  As a winner of its “Main Street Matters” program, Ellicott City was selected to receive a fresh paint makeover and celebrated with none other than a party.


    Last Thursday, rain did not stop supporters of Main Street, including Ellicott City residents and shop owners, from gathering outside of B&O Railroad Museum to celebrate the town’s much-deserved revitalization with cake, refreshments, music, and giveaways.  The cutting of an Ellicott City-themed cake, a scavenger hunt of newly painted buildings, and a special photo booth also helped to kick off the celebrations.


    Benjamin Moore curated a palette just for Ellicott City, which included 20 unique colors such as Nature’s Essentials, Chrome Green, Wythe Blue, and Garrison Red.


    It was great to celebrate Main Street's new look and support other local businesses! A visit to Main Street should definitely be on the top of your Summer sights to see list!

    If you’re looking for the perfect Ellicott City getaway, come to Turf Valley. At our luxurious hotel and spa, you’ll find magnificent facilities, helpful staff, and a wide range of activities to enjoy.
