Beverly Hills, Calif. (Vocus) March 19, 2009
The Hilton Family of Hotels announced the opening of the dual-branded Hilton Garden Inn Baltimore/Arundel Mills and the Homewood Suites by Hilton Baltimore/Arundel Mills, located in Hanover, Maryland and adjacent to the Baltimore Washington International Airport.
